Global Premium Cigars is the company behind the more familiar brand, 1502 Cigars. This year they had a couple of interesting releases to show off, and as always, Sánchez was enthusiastic to show them off.

Global Premium Cigars 1502 XO IPCPR 2016

1502 XO

The 1502 XO is getting a plethora of new sizes–perhaps to meet certain deadlines–but regardless, many people love the line and I’m sure will be excited to find a better selection of sizes to choose from.

Global Premium Cigars Blue Sapphire IPCPR 2016

1502 Blue Sapphire

Another addition to the lineup is the Blue Sapphire, which is a Nicaraguan puro. Only coming in one size right now, there was no mention of expanding the sizes in the future, but I can’t imagine that won’t happen at some point.

  • Filler: Nicaragua
  • 1502 Blue Sapphire Toro Gordo (6 x 52) – $13 (Boxes of 27, $351)

About the author

I have been smoking cigars since 2005 and reviewing them as a hobby since 2010. Initially I started out small with a 50-count humidor and only smoking one or two cigars a month. Not knowing anybody else that smoked cigars, it was only an occasional hobby that I took part in. In March of 2010 I joined Nublive and Cigar Asylum, connecting me with many people who also shared an interest in cigars. Reading what they had to say about brands I had never heard of, I quickly immersed myself in the boutique brands of the industry and it was then that cigars transformed from a hobby into a passion. Besides my cigar hobby and job in the IT industry, my wife and I love traveling, trying new restaurants and relaxing at home with our two dogs.
