October 15, 2012 (Jeffersonville, IN) — Riverside Cigars, the country’s number one retailer of 262 Cigars, is proud to host the national release of its new cigar line, The Revere, this Friday, October 19th. This is the first opportunity in the U.S. for cigar lovers to sample this new cigar from 262 Cigars and to meet Clint Aaron, Brand Owner, who will be on hand to sign cigar items and host an educational session about the new Revere line.

“The REVERE is our third full production blend. It is an all Nicaraguan blend that’s medium strength and medium bodied,” says Clint Aaron, “We chose Riverside Cigars to host the launch party because they have been a huge supporter of 262 Cigars since the very beginning. In fact, Riverside Cigars is our number one single-point retailer in the country.”

The Revere is a Nicaraguan puro. The cigar features a wrapper from the Jalapa Valley, a double binder of both Jalapa and Estelí tobaccos, and a rare combination of Estelí, Condega and Jalapa seco, viso, and ligero for the filler. The Revere is produced by Plasencia Cigars S.A. in Esteli, Nicaragua. The suggested retail price is $7.50 for the Corona, $8.00 for the Robusto, and $9.75 for the flagship size Box Press Toro.

The 262 Cigars’ Revere Release Event will take place this Friday, October 19th 4:00pm-11:00pm at Riverside which is located at 201 Spring Street in Jeffersonville, Indiana. This free event, which is open to the public, will include raffles for free cigars and promotional materials.

Attendees of the event will get an exclusive preview of Riverside Cigar’s new adjacent speakeasy-style, boutique bourbon bar and lounge, Match, which will open in November 2012. With pre-prohibition inspired décor and libations, Match will offer specialty, artisan and local spirits, beer and wine. Match will also feature bourbon tastings and seminars to introduce, educate, and entertain customers about all things bourbon and help customers match bourbon with the profiles of cigars and their own personal lifestyle. Attendees of the 262 Revere Release event will have the opportunity enjoy a sample of one of Match’s specialty pre-prohibition cocktail drinks on the house.
