Editor’s Comment:  Original reports (as well as the Cigar Authority Report) listed this as using a wrapper from Germany both of these blends  Recent articles are listing the wrappers as Habano and Sumatra.  At this time we are going with Habano and Sumatra as the wrappers.  We are modifying our story here.

C & C Cigars has recently released a new line of cigars called the Loose Cannon.  This cigar was seen at the 2012 IPCPR Trade Show in Orlando, Florida.

The C & C Loose Cannon has launched in two blends.  The first is the C & C Loose Cannon Trigger Happy which features a Habano wrapper in a rounded format.   The second is the C & C Loose Cannon 1206 which features a box-press Sumatra wrapper.

Preliminary information showed up on the C & C website. The Cigar Authority featured some details on the cigars on their 1/12/13 broadcast.  They noted the 1206 comes from the year that the cannon was invented.  The cigars have been arriving at various retailers over the past week.

C & C Cigars was founded by Joe Chuisano.  Many people know Chuisano from his days as president of Cusano Cigars. Back in 2009, Davidoff purchased Cusano Cigars. Chuisano would stay on with Davidoff until February of 2011, when he would resign.  Shortly after that he would form C & C Cigars.

Here are the details of the C & C Loose Cannon line:
