Glen Case not only had some new blends at this year’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, but also some new packaging options as well.
Kristoff San Andrés
The first new blend is the Kristoff San Andrés, a three vitola line that features a Mexican San Andrés wrapper.
The three sizes are sold in boxes of 20 and include a Churchill (7 x 50, $9), 6 x 60 (6 x 60, $9.50) and Robusto (5 1/2 x 54, $9.50.)
The second new blend is the Kristoff Cameroon, which as the name implies, incorporates a seven-and-a-half-year-old Cameroon wrapper. There are three vitolas in this line, sold in boxes of 20: Churchill (7 x 50, $9.50), Matador (6 1/2 x 56, $10) and Robusto (5 1/2 x 54, $9).
Kristoff 2008 Vintage Salomons
In addition, Kristoff released a limited number of 2008 Vintage Salomons, a 5 3/4 x 56 salomon that is sold in boxes of 10. Only 150 boxes were produced, and each cigar has an MSRP of $13.
Finally, Kristoff showed off a new packaging option for three of its lines. The new Robusto tubes come in boxes of 10 and are available for the company’s Corojo Limitada, Sumatra and Original Maduro lines.
