262 Cigars announced on Wednesday that they are delaying a “seasonal blend” that they had planned for release this year, pushing the project back to 2014.
In an press release, the company said that:
Originally scheduled to be released in the Fall of this year, 262 has postponed the launch for 2014. After careful consideration, it was decided that the tobacco for the selected blend would not be ready for 2013. “In this business, you can either force the tobacco to adhere to your schedule and release a mediocre product, or you can wait for the tobacco to be right and deliver a truly premium cigar to the market. We’ve learned to choose the latter, no matter what.”
The project was teased in January 2013 in this post on the 262 Cigars blog but has remained largely off the radar since the initial mention.
