Wine Themed Cigars Released
Posted: June 11, 2010
Second Growth, a wine inspired brand of cigars made by Davidoff guru Hendrik "Henke" Kelner for wine and spirits importer Eric Hanson, officially launched on May 26 at a party at New York City's Club Macanudo.
The cigars, milder smokes from a blend of Dominican and Honduran tobaccos with light-hued Connecticut-seed wrappers from Ecuador, were created to be paired with fine wines. The packaging is extraordinary, with boxes crafted from used wine barrels. "I purchased 50 barrels from a second-growth Bordeaux chateau," said Hanson.
Second Growth was originally intended to debut in December. It comes in one size, a 7 1/4 by 54 parejo that retails for $32.50 per cigar. There were 1,000 boxes made.
