The Powstanie line will be getting a new striped addition in the form of a cigar called Wojtek.
Next year the company plans on releasing the Powstanie Wojtek, a new version of the 5 x 50 perfecto that is already offered in both regular Powstanie blends. The Wojtek is a tweaked version of the Habano Perfecto. Notably, it has a stripe of Mexican San Andrés tobacco running down the wrapper.
It will be limited to 500 boxes of 21 cigars, priced at $12 per cigar.
Mike Szczepankewicz, one of the owners of the Powstanie brand, told halfwheel the company expects to ship the cigar following the 2019 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, which begins June 29 in Las Vegas.
Update: As pointed out on Instagram, the name is actually Wojtek, not Wotjek.
