Latitude Zero, a brand that is part of Scandinavian Tobacco Group’s portfolio and that pays tribute to the tobaccos of Ecuador, has released a new blend created by Raul Disla.
The Latitude Zero Signature uses an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, a Nicaraguan habano binder, and a filler that includes Nicaraguan habano, Dominican habano and Connecticut broadleaf, with the tobaccos in the blend coming from the Oliva Tobacco Co. It is described as being full-bodied with highlights of pepper, leather, cream and spice.
The new line is produced by the NACSA factory in Nicaragua and offered in three sizes:
- Latitude Zero Signature Robusto (5 x 54) — $8 (Box of 20, $160)
- Latitude Zero Signature Toro (6 x 52) — $8.25 (Box of 20, $165)
- Latitude Zero Signature Gordo (6 x 60) — $8.75 (Box of 20, $175)
“Latitude Zero Signature is rich and refined with an intriguing spice,” said Kevin Irvine, product coordinator of STG’s online and retail division, in a press release. “It complements the original Latitude Zero blend, offering a completely unique smoking experience. This cigar smokes like an ultra-premium, so it’s a great choice for someone who wants the utmost in tobacco quality and complexity at a great price point.”
The line launched on June 24, with national distribution handled by Meier & Dutch.
