Xikar Set to Debut Limited-Edition Salomon
Posted: October 5, 2011
accessories maker Xikar has gone big with its HC Habano Colorado line
of cigars before, but now it’s adding a little more shape.
The HC Series Habano Colorado Salomon, a seven-inch long by 58 ring gauge figurado, is expected to start appearing in tobacco shops on November 1.
Made by Jesus Fuego inside the Plasencia Cigars S.A. factory in Estelí, Nicaragua, the HC Series Habano Colorado sports a Nicaraguan wrapper and binder with filler from Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Honduras. The Belicoso size of the blend cracked Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 cigars of 2009 list, coming in at No. 24.
Only 10,000 Salomons will be rolled, and they will come in boxes of 10 and sell for $10 apiece. Like other HC series cigars, the Habano Colorado Salomon features a decorative footband with the name of the blend on it.
Once the Salomons ship, xikar.com will post a list of tobacconists that carry the size.
