Meier & Dutch, the distribution company associated with Cigars International, will be introducing three new products at the 2013 IPCPR trade show, some of which will be sold only to brick and mortar retailers. The Man O’ War Dark Aged Maduro uses a Brazilian Habano wrapper from higher primings to give the cigar its darker look. A representative described the cigar as “full-bodied” thanks in large part to the blend of Nicaraguan fillers. Pricing is $7.00-$11.00 and the Dark Aged Maduro will only be sold to brick and mortar retailers.
In addition, the company is expanding its portfolio of cigars with Shorty Rossi of Animal Planet’s Pit Boss. Two cigars will be coming from Drew Estate’s factory: Natural Shorty (4 1/2 x 50) and ACID Shorty (4 1/2 x 60). Both products will come in boxes of 10 with pricing set at $8.00 per cigar. Rossi is expected to be doing events to promote the products, as well as Diesel.
