The latest in the Powstanie line is off to retailers nationwide.

Pospeich Inc., the parent company of Powstanie, has announced that it has begun shipping the Powstanie SBC 16, a limited edition barberpole release. The cigar measures 5 1/2 x 46 with both Ecuadorian Connecticut and Pennsylvania broadleaf wrappers over Nicaraguan fillers.

Pricing is set at $16 per cigar or $320 per box of 20. It is limited to 250 boxes of 20 cigars.

The SBC part of the name stands for surrounded by champions, a nod to those who helped the Szczepankewicz brothers launch the Powstanie brand.

Like the rest of the Powstanie line it is produced at Fabrica de Tabacos NicaSueño S.A.
