IPCPR 2016

General Cigar is releasing three exciting new value brands, each made with top-quality, long filler tobaccos and created with the cigar retailer and its customers in mind. All three lines will launch in September.

House Blend (Brick and Mortar Exclusive)

With an intricate and full-flavored blend of Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos in a range of popular sizes, House Blend cigars are unbranded and can easily be customized for sale in a retailer’s store. Handmade in Nicaragua and presented in authentic 20-count bundles, House Blend is wrapped in Nicaragua Habano, bound with Honduran tobacco and made with Nicaraguan long filler. The line will debut with five frontmarks, with per-cigar SRPs ranging from $2.15 to $2.80.
