KILO to Get Second Launch


Barry Stein’s KILO will be shown off for the second time when Stein visits Primo Cigar Shop of Santa Fe, N.M. on Friday, September 30. Stein, assistant director of marketing for Miami Cigar & Co., created KILO as his personal cigar, something of a dream for the New York-native. The cigar originally debuted at the Chattanooga Tweet-Up in August both for sale and as a promotional item.

Now, 50 boxes of KILO—still in the Robusto size—will head to Primo for an event with Stein. The 20-count boxes will carry an MSRP of $160.00 or $8.00 per cigar.


As for the future of the cigar, Miami Cigar & Co. hasn’t made any decisions. Jason Wood told halfwheel the company was still deciding if there would be more KILO. Stein has begun testing two additional vitolas of KILO, but Wood said the additional sizes didn’t mean anything to the future of the line.

This is the second 2013 release from Miami Cigar & Co. to debut at a New Mexico retailer, in February the company launched the Nestor Miranda 70th at Monte’s in Albuquerque.

Update: An original version of this story confused the two New Mexico retailers Monte’s and Primo Cigar Shop.
