Victor Vitale has released his first 7 x 70 cigar.

The new blend, which has been dubbed Toxic, is a  7 x 70 with a pig tail and unfinished foot that incorporates a habano wrapper from Ecuador covering Nicaraguan tobacco used for both the binder and filler. The new cigar is rolled at Tabacalera Aguilar factory in Honduras and is priced at $8 packaged in boxes of 100.

Vitale told halfwheel that the name and skull and crossbones logo is meant to be a “satire approach to warning labels,” while the idea of the cigar itself was “kind-of inspired” by the quote “Live on the edge.”

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
