Zander-Greg has released the cigar crafted in celebration of Nat Cicco’s 50th anniversary, the HHB Gold.

The line is a revamp of the existing HHB line, which was launched in 2012. For the 50th anniversary release, the HHB Gold gets new packaging, a new band, larger sizes and a 25% price reduction.

The blend for this release uses an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler, and now comes in 7 3/4 x 54, 5 1/4 x 56 and 6 3/4 x 58 vitolas. Each size comes in ten-count Spanish cedar boxes with a black piano-finish.

The price has also dropped to $7, down from the original $10 MSRP which was announced at the 2014 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.

The Nat Cicco line debuted in 1965.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
