J. London Cigars has created a new vitola of its Gold Series for Luxury Cigar Club and its Preferred Retail Partner Network.

It’s the Piramides, a 6 x 52 figurado with an elongated, pointed head design, and like the rest of the line, it uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper and binder along with Dominican filler that has been aged for three to four years. It becomes the 11th vitola in the line, which includes store exclusive sizes as well as more widespread releases.

  • J. London Gold Series Robusto (5 x 50)
  • J. London Gold Series Toro (6 x 54)
  • J. London Gold Series Lancero (7 1/2 x 40)
  • J. London Gold Series Lonsdale (6 1/2 x 42)

  • J. London Gold Series Box Press Churchill (7 x 50)

The new vitola is priced at $19 per cigar and offered in 10-count boxes. Chris Doyle of Luxury Cigar Club said that a total of 7,000 cigars were produced for this run, and they will begin shipping to retailers late next week.

J. London Cigars released its Gold Series in 2014, the same year that Jonathan Fiant launched the company. The line has been released both in boxes as seen here, as well as in paper-wrapped bundles that feature some sort of artwork. The line is produced at Tabacalera William Ventura in the Dominican Republic.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
