Ezra Zion Eminence to Debut at IPCPR 2013


Ezra Zion’s latest line is set for its debut next month. Eminence, the company’s first non-Nicaraguan puro, will debut at the 2013 IPCPR trade show and convention in Las Vegas, Nev. The company is focusing on the wrapper, a Mexican San Andrés, as the major selling point for the cigar.

“It’s almost a personal challenge,” said Kyle Hoover. “It’s very unforgiving. If there’s one thing off, the whole blend you start to build completely collapses, so we went through try after try after try.”

Eminence will debut in six sizes: Belicoso Gran Toro (5 x 58), Gran Prensado (7 x 54), Exquisito (6 1/4 x 52), Churchill Box Press (7 x 48), Corona (6 x 46) and Gran Robusto (5 1/4 x 50). Pricing for the first three vitolas is $12.50 per cigar, while the latter three will run $11.50. Each vitola comes inboxes of 21, pricing boxes at $262.50 and $241.50 respectively.

In addition to the San Andrés wrapper, the blend features dual Nicaraguan binders, as well as Nicaraguan fillers. 

The company told halfwheel the cigars are limited to a total of 3,000 boxes across the line annually. It is the company’s second limited release, following the debut of Tantrum.

“For us it’s not your typical earthy and dry San Andrés,” said Hoover. “It’s got a sweet brown sugar molasses to it that is unlike most San Andrés.”

Ezra Zion is distributed by Gary Griffith’s House of Emilio.
