Kristoff has announced two new products and a redesign of an existing line that it will be showing off at the 2024 PCA Convention & Trade Show in late March.

Headlining the new releases is the Kristoff Twentieth Anniversary, which has a blend that uses a Brazilian arapiraca wrapper, an Indonesian binder, and fillers from Nicaragua and Pennsylvania. It is being offered in four sizes, which will come with price tags between $13 and $15 per cigar:

  • Kristoff Twentieth Anniversary Robusto (5 x 50)
  • Kristoff Twentieth Anniversary Toro (6 1/2 x 54)
  • Kristoff Twentieth Anniversary Gordo (6 x 60)
  • Kristoff Twentieth Anniversary Cut Perfecto (6 x 60)

The Kristoff Twentieth Anniversary is being added as a regular production line and is slated to begin shipping in April.

The company will also be offering an exclusive cigar for retailers who attend the trade show, the Kristoff PCA 2024 Signature Series. This year’s version uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper atop an Indonesian binder and a Nicaraguan filler. It is being offered in a 6 1/2 x 54 box-pressed toro vitola, with pricing announced as being between $13 and $15 as well. Like the Twentieth Anniversary, the new PCA exclusive is set to begin shipping in April, but its production is limited to approximately 750 boxes.

Finally, the Kristoff Vengeance is getting an updated look as the company begins making over its portfolio to modernize it from the company’s previous aesthetic of rough-cut boxes and loose tobacco surrounding the cigars.

The Vengeance has roots dating back to the company’s early years, but went away until reemerging in 2018 with a new blend that uses a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper, Indonesian binder and a filler that has tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.

The company has not announced exactly when the new look will begin heading to stores, other than to say that it will begin replacing the existing packaging once current stock has been depleted.

Kristoff’s cigars are produced at Tabacalera Von Eicken S.R.L. in Santiago, 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.
