General Cigar Co. announces the release of two new Dunhill lines, which debuted at the recent 2015 International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers (IPCPR) association trade show just weeks ago.
Heritage by Dunhill - The First Dunhill Made in Honduras
The artisans at Dunhill Cigars proudly present Heritage, an elegant, full-bodied collection that celebrates the brand’s rich history of award-winning cigars. Crafted by Dunhill Cigars’ master blender, Heritage by Dunhill reveals an exciting harmony of flavors derived from the world’s richest soils.
"For more than 100 years, Dunhill has searched the world in a quest for sourcing tobacco of exceptional flavor and complexity. The goal is to epitomize smoking excellence, and we believe we have delivered that with Heritage by Dunhill,” said Steven Kron, regional account manager for Dunhill cigars.
Dressed in a bold Ecuadoran Habano ligero and blended with exotic tobaccos including ten-year aged Nicaraguan Ometepe, eight-year aged Honduran Jamastran and three-year-aged Nicaraguan Esteli, Heritage by Dunhill is bound with Nicaraguan Jalapa. The flavor is bold, full-bodied, complex and positively Dunhill.
Dunhill Cigars has chosen this new range to be produced at General Cigar’s Honduran factory, adding another country to the production landscape of its acclaimed cigars.
Heritage by Dunhill will premiere at retail in August 2015 with four frontmarks, presented in 10-count boxes, inspired by vintage Dunhill cigars of the brand’s Cuban years:
Gigante 6" x 60, SRP per cigar $12.95
Churchill 7½" x 50, SRP per cigar $12.55
Toro 6" x 50, SRP per cigar $11.25
Robusto (box-pressed) 5" x 50, SPR per cigar $10.15
Dunhill Signed Range Selección Suprema - The Most Exclusive in the Dunhill Portfolio
Dunhill Cigars celebrates the 80th anniversary of its acclaimed Don Candido line with Dunhill Signed Range Selección Suprema, the brand’s most exclusive launch to date.
Steven Kron, regional account manager of Dunhill Cigars said, “Don Candido was the first cigar ever manufactured solely for Dunhill, thus beginning the brand’s legacy of exclusivity. It is with great pride that we debut Selección Suprema, a cigar that honors Dunhill Cigars’ commitment to bringing the very finest handmade cigars to connoisseurs throughout the world.”
This landmark cigar combines a Nicaraguan Jalapa shade wrapper with three exceptional fillers: full-bodied Nicaraguan Esteli and Jalapa, and rare Brazilian Mata Fina, and a hearty Connecticut Broadleaf binder. To achieve Selección Suprema’s incredible character, the artisans of Dunhill Cigars select only the finest leaves for intensive fermentation and aging.
After being hand-rolled by master torcedors, the cigars emerge, flawlessly crafted, and uniquely Dunhill. Spicy-sweet, full-flavored and well balanced, Dunhill Signed Range Selección Suprema is indeed a cigar for the true aficionado, as an extremely limited number of boxes have been created for global distribution.
The exquisite blend will be released in just one size, a 6" x 50 Toro that was developed to maximize the flavor of the tobaccos. The cigars are showcased in elegant, matte finish black boxes, each protecting eight cigars. Premiering in October, Dunhill Signed Range Selección Suprema will sell for $20.00 per cigar, or $160 per box, until the limited U.S. allotment is depleted.
