While last year saw Dean Parson’s Epic Cigars introducing two new lines, the 2017 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show was more of a laid back affair, with the company only showing off one release named the Smoking Shields, a blend which began as a limited edition of only 100 boxes that has since blossomed into a much larger release.
The blend was originally produced as an exclusive for the charity smoking club Smoking Shields Cigar Club, Corp., which raises money for law enforcement and military men, women and their families. While the cigar was first limited to only 100 boxes in November 2016, Parsons decided to expand the release to approximately 1,000 boxes that will be distributed not only in the United States, but also in Canada and Germany.
