The two new cigars that Warfighter Tobacco Co. showed off at this year’s PCA Convention & Trade Show are ready to begin shipping tomorrow.
The Warfighter Heroes Sports was created as a way to support and raise funds for Heroes Sports, a San Antonio-based charity that offers service members and veterans opportunities to play sports, as well as hunt and fish, attend concerts and other activities. A portion of the sales of the Heroes Sports cigar will be donated to the charity.
The blend uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper atop a Nicaraguan binder and filler. It is offered in a 6 x 52 toro vitola that is priced at $11 and comes in 10-count boxes. It is joining the company’s portfolio as a regular production line.
The second cigar is the Warfighter Victory 4th Edition, the newest installment in the company’s Victory Series. It uses a Brazilian mata fina wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and filler and comes in a 6 x 54 toro vitola. Pricing is set at $17.76 per cigar, and it is offered in 10-count boxes, with production limited to 2,000 boxes.
This is also a notable release at it is the first time a Victory Series will be sold through retail channels, as the company has previously sold it exclusively online.
Both cigars are made at Tabacalera Carreras in Estelí, Nicaragua.
