The new Freyja 12 Dvallin measures 5 inches by 46 ring gauge.

When Emma Viktorsson released the Freyja 12 Brisingamen last year, the large, Churchill-sized cigar commemorated her 12 years in the cigar business. This July, she’s releasing a smaller version of the cigar called the Freyja 12 Dvalinn. It measures 5 inches by 46 ring gauge and comes in cellophane-wrapped six-packs.

According to Viktorsson, she made the smaller version of the Freyja 12 to suit the Swedish smokers who wanted a shorter cigar for the cold winters.

“The Churchill size of Freyja12 Brisingamen is very large for Scandinavia’s long, cold winters during which they often have to step outside to smoke or sit in a cold garage,” Viktorsson says. “They wanted more of Freyja 12 but in a smaller size which they call a ‘winter cigar.’ ”

While tobacconists in Sweden have the new size, the Freyja 12 Dvalinn will ship to U.S. retailers in July.  

The Freyja 12 Dvalinn is rolled by hand at Tabacalera Palma in the Dominican Republic, and made with same blend as its larger predecessor: an Ecuador Habano wrapper, Dominican Corojo binder and an all-Dominican filler of Piloto Cubano, Criollo ’98 and Corojo. Both are topped with a pigtail cap.

A fan of Nordic mythology, Viktorsson named the Dvalinn after one of the dwarves who created the Brisingamen necklace for the Norse goddess Freyja. The new cigar is a “dwarf” version of the original and slated to retail for $6 each or $36 per six-pack.

Freyja brands are distributed through AFR Imports out of Miami.
