Pura Soul Cigars announced today that it is ready to unveil its second release, a Honduran puro that comes from the Jamastran region of the country and is being produced by the Eiroa family at El Aladino.

In a press release issued today, Robert Wright, the founder of Pura Soul, said that “the new blend is awesome; I amped it up in strength but the flavor and balance remains. The sizes will satisfy the traditional cigar size consumer as well as the larger and newer ring gauge smoker.”

Pura Soul will also be getting a new look on store shelves, with a silhouette of Wright wielding his saxophone now featured. Wright is also a jazz musician who performs at events throughout the county.New Pura Soul boxes

The Pura Soul Honduras will be featured in four sizes in 20 count boxes: 6 x 48, a 5 x 50 box pressed robusto, 6 x 54 toro and a 7 x 64. Suggested pricing will be between $7.44 and $9.04 per cigar.

They will be on display at the 2014 IPCPR Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas, Nev., which opens on Sunday, July 20.

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.
