The 2018 version of Powstnaie’s limited edition barber pole is heading out to stores.
The Powstanie SBC 18 is a 5 1/2 x 46 corona gorda that uses a Mexican San Andrés leaf as the main wrapper with Ecuador Connecticut accents. It’s nearly identical to the original SBC 16, though that cigar used a Pennsylvania broadleaf leaf as the main wrapper. Both cigars use the same Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers.
As with that original release, the cigars are packaged in wood boxes of 20 marked with the company’s red P logo, with pricing set at $16 per cigar. Production is limited to 250 boxes of 20 cigars.
A launch event will take place tonight at Ligero Tobacco House in Buford, Ga.
An earlier version of this story incorrectly indicated that the boxes were red.
