While he isn’t expected to be releasing any new projects at the upcoming IPCPR convention and trade show, Eddie Ortega is already working on a project that he says will launch in 2013.
Named the “Dirty Dozen,” Ortega didn’t reveal much about the specifics other than that it’s a project that will have a new release every month and that it’s something he’s been working on for a while. In the Facebook post where he unveiled the graphic, he says that he has been working with Neal Wollenberg on the project. Wollenberg has a Facebook page called Cigart, where he has created graphics for several companies and a cigar message board.
The first four names of the new cigars have been announced:
- January 2013 – Big Bad John “Jack Hammer”
- February 2013 – Iron Mike “The Brawler”
- March 2013 – Wild Bill “Widow Maker”
- April 2013 – Tony the Boss “AR-10 Killer”
No specifics about the Dirty Dozen have been announced yet, including blend or the factory where it will be produced. Ortega said he will have more complete release information available after IPCPR.
