IPCPR 2016: Nicaragua Cigar Distributors

Null

Nicaragua Cigar Distributors, makers of Santiago Cigars, rolled out one of the most interesting releases at the 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, at least in my opinion, the Double Shot Energy Cigar.

Dubbed the “Red Bull in a cigar”, the company says that the Double Shot Energy Cigar has FDA-approved active ingredients such as caffeine and taurine applied to the binder in a tasteless form that the company assured me would give a boost of energy as the cigar is being smoked.

Interestingly, the cigar will be available in two different versions, with the first being a premium incarnation that is made up of an Ecuadorian habano wrapper, an unspecified binder — where the special ingredients are added — and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos. It will be sold in four different vitolas ranging from $7.50 to $9 each, and will be packaged in either 10-count boxes or 8-count tubes.

About the author

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
