Scandinavian Tobacco Group (STG) has announced a new line called Shady Moose, which is described as a cousin to the popular Chillin’ Moose.

It uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper over a Mexican binder and fillers from Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and the United States. Shady Moose is offered in three sizes, including a toro, the first time any Chillin’ Moose blend is offered in a toro according to the company. The line is made at STG Danlí in Honduras.

  • Shady Moose Robusto (5 1/2 x 50) — $4.79 (Box of 20, $95.80)
  • Shady Moose Toro (6 x 52) — $4.99 (Box of 20, $99.80)
  • Shady Moose Gigante (6 x 60) — $5.49 (Box of 20, $109.80)

“With Shady Moose, we built a great, anytime, anywhere blend that takes the smooth-smoking properties of a Connecticut Shade cigar and amps it up with the right amount of complexity and spice,” said John Hakim, brand manager of Chillin’ Moose, in a press release. “And we didn’t stop there. We added in the cool Moose imagery and locked in an unbelievable price point. Now we’re waiting for Shady Moose to take a run at the internet, just like Bull Moose did last year. We’re ready for it. The question is…are you?”

Shady Moose will be distributed by Forged Cigar Co.
