After a quiet 2012, Kristoff Cigars is going into 2013 with a bang. In addition to the new Kristoff Galerones line, the company will also be launching a new limited edition cigar. This cigar will be called the 685 Woodlawn. In a conversation we had with company President Glen Case, we got some details of this new project.
It was about a year ago on Kiss My Ash Radio, where Case first gave some details into this project. He described the project as a 6 1/2 x 60 perfecto using some tobaccos he had not used before.
According to Case, 2000 boxes of ten will be produced of the 685 Woodlawn. Like the Galerones, Case described the packaging as “rich/elegant”. The cigar will initially be offered to members of the Tobacconist Association of America with the remaining boxes going on-sale to Kristoff retailers. While the cigar will be showcased at the 2013 IPCPR Trade Show, Case expects the cigar will be sold out before hand.

Case also said he expects shipments to TAA members in late July, with the remaining shipments going out in the late August/early September timeframe.
Here are the particulars of what we know about that cigar.
The cigar uses a Brazilian Cubra wrapper. The 685 Woodlawn is made in the Charles Fairmorn factory in the Dominican Republic.
Wrapper: Brazilian Cubra
Filler: Nicaraguan and Dominican Habano
As mentioned, the 685 Woodlawn will be available in a single size – 6 1/2 x 60 perfecto.
