The Limited Cigars Association has announced the latest release in its series of limited edition cigars, the Quesada BBQ Pig LCA Exclusive.

The cigar, which goes on sale on Friday, May 7, is a 4 x 60 perfecto that comes with an MSRP of $12 per cigar. Neither the blend nor the production numbers are being disclosed, but Clark Thornton of the LCA told halfwheel that it is the most limited LCA production to date. While it is offered in 20-count bundles, Thornton added that he anticipates many stores will limit sales to a few singles.

According to a press release from the LCA, the cigar’s name is inspired by the notes found in the cigar, “many of which are reminiscent of barbecued meats and flavors.” The release also noted that the name is a play on the cigar being what is commonly referred to as a “pig” vitola.

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, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
