Ahead of a national release planned for next January, Lampert Cigars will send one of its newest lines to Small Batch Cigar of Orange, Calif. for a soft launch.
The new line is called Lampert 1593 Edición Blanca, which uses a two-year-old Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over a three-year-old Dominican binder and fillers that have been aged for three-five years. It is being made at Julián Sued & Compañía in Tamboril, Dominican Republic.
Lampert Cigars has announced two different sizes: a 6 x 52 toro that will be sold in the U.S. and a 3 3/4 x 52 short robusto that will be sold in Europe. The MSRP for the toro is set at $15 per cigar.
“We have had a wonderful relationship with the Maxamar/Small Batch team and wanted to treat their customers to a sneak peek of sorts,” said Dr. Stefan Lampert, founder of Lampert Cigars, in a press release. “We have finalized the blend after last year’s PCA and the cigars have been put into production shortly after, so they have had plenty of time to rest before release.”
