A quintet of new lanceros from Jake Wyatt Cigar Co. will be heading to stores this week, as Jake Wyatt Cigar Co. has begun shipping its Gourmet Line Limited Assortment Lancero Sampler.

Inside each sampler are five cigars, a 7 x 38 vitola for each of its Gourmet Series lines, the Appendix II, Fourth Dimension, Herbert Spencer, Lucid Interval and U.S.I.R. lines. Each sampler comes with an MSRP of $66, and the company is producing 1,000 of the samplers.

This is the second new size for the Gourmet Line this year, as in mid-May the company added a 5 1/2 x 44 corona vitola.

The cigars are produced at Tabacalera JVM, where all of Jake Wyatt’s portfolio is produced.

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.
