July 6, 2012 — Last month 262 Cigars released the name for their new cigar line, “REVERE” set to appear late this fall. The 262 REVERE will be a Nicaraguan puro with a wrapper from the Jalapa Valley, a double binder of both Jalapa and Estelí tobaccos, and a combination of Estelí, Condega and Jalapa tobaccos for the filler.  The REVERE is coming out of Plasencia Cigars S.A. in Esteli, Nicaragua.  MSRP is $6.61 for the Corona, $7.13 for the Robusto, and $8.70 for the flagship size Box Press Toro. Samples will be available at the IPCPR show in August and 262 Cigars will be taking orders to begin shipping in October.  The Nationwide launch will be held in October at Riverside Cigars in Jeffersonville, IN.  Clint has also decided to produce an exclusive size (lonsdale) for Jason Shepherd that will only be available at his shop, J. Shepherd Cigars in Louisville, KY.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
