In late summer, Arturo Fuente quietly shipped a new value-priced cigar, Cazadores. At the time, the 6 x 50 Toro, was banded with the word “Especiales,” but it was not clear the cigar would be part of a line.
This past week, Fuente shipped the second part of the Especiales line, a 7 x 52 Churchill called “Emperador.” The Sun Grown cigars are part of a value-priced line and both been packed in boxes of 30. Fuente says that a third size, called Conquistadore, should be arriving “soon.”
Retailers are already reporting the Emperador is in stock.
