Lars Tetens Returns to Cigar Industry With Seven Brands

Null

At this month’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, Lars Tetens will show off seven brands of cigars as part of the company’s new partnership with Alec Bradley.

All seven of the cigars are old brands from the Lars Tetens portfolio different from what Lars Tetens had been selling prior to the announcement of the Alec Bradley partnership.

The company declined to talk details about the blends of the cigars, other than to say they use a proprietary conditioning process developed by Tetens and they are rolled at Jesus Fuego’s factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.

Each of the lines features artwork by Tetens and the boxes are color-coded: blue is mild, white is medium, orange is full and red is for “Sweet N Spicy.”
