While Blue Mountain Cigars booth was towards the back of the show, in a smaller booth, they certainly go big with their cigar line names. With lines like Swinger After Dark and El Threesome, it’s pretty clear that they’re having fun with the cigars.
While not a new cigar at the show, they were most excited to tell me about the El Threesome line, which uses three different wrappers — a Connecticut, Habano and maduro — to create a unique and changing smoking experience. Coming in two sizes, a 6 x 60 retailing at $9.17 and a 6 x 52 retailing at $7.50, with each coming in 24-count boxes.
The actual new product is Pure White. Dipped in Hennessy Cognac, the Habano wrapped Nicaraguan puro will come in boxes of 25 and should be shipping in August.
It will have three sizes – a 5 x 50 robusto retailing for $5.20, a 6 x 52 toro retailing at $5.28 and a 6 x 60 called the Chairman which will retail at $5.60.
“Limited Edition” 2015
Lastly, what they didn’t have on display – or actually much information about at all – is a limited edition cigar that should be ready in about a month. No blend, box count, price or size information was given, and the sample they had didn’t actually have a finalized band on it. Press releases should be coming out soon, but until then it’s somewhat of a secret it seems.
