Clint Aaron of 262 Cigars has confirmed that the Paradigm 4SIXTY is being discontinued in the near future. Aaron told halfwheel that there is approximately 90 boxes remaining, and when they are gone, they are gone.
“We currently have 6 sizes in that blend, and the 4SIXTY is not as popular with our customers as it once was,” Aaron said, adding that “with the addition of the Paradigm Corona coming Spring of 2014, we decided to cut back on one of our less popular sizes. Plus everybody is moving toward Lanceros, right? That’s my goal anyway.”
The Paradigm line is made in Honduras using a Brazilian Mata Fina wrapper, Honduran binder and filler from Nicaragua and Colombia. It debuted in 2009 in three vitolas, a Torpedo, a Robusto and a box-pressed Toro, and has since added a 6 x 60 vitola, a 7 x 38 Lancero, and the now discontinued 4 x 60 vitola called the 4SIXTY.
