Kristoff will be adding a new core line at this year’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, the Kristoff Shade Grown.
Glen Case told halfwheel that the new line features a shade grown, Honduran Connecticut-seed wrapper that sits atop a Dominican binder and fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic, a blend he described as being in the mild to medium range.
It is being released in three sizes, all being produced at the Charles Fairmorn Factory in the Dominican Republic:
- Kristoff Shade Grown Robusto (5 1/2 x 54) — $7.90 (Boxes of 20, $158)
- Kristoff Shade Grown Churchill (7 x 50) — $8 (Boxes of 20, $160)
- Kristoff Shade Grown Matador (6 1/2 x 56) — $8.90 (Boxes of 20, $178)
Case said he expects the line to begin shipping in June.
Box counts were added to this story shortly after it was published.
