The Gravitas is a initial cigar launched by a new company called Gramercy Cigars. The cigar will be made in Esteli, Nicaragua at the Tabacalera Carreras factory. The launch of the cigar appears to be a gradual one as it is debuting in select markets around the U.S. Information on this launch was received in a press release sent to Cigar Coop.
Gramercy cigars was founded this past year by a gentleman named Ryan Kohl. Kohl launched the company to pay homage to his father Ed Kohl, who had made a name for himself in the Scotch industry. In the press release, Kohl said: “I remember my
grandfather teaching me about Scotch at a young age. I was always
fascinated by the processes and the camaraderie in the Scotch
industry. I wanted to create
something special that I could share with my grandfather. He’s
been a great inspiration to me, and this is the least I could do.
There’s not a greater feeling than having a dram of Scotch, a
cigar, and a great conversation with my grandfather.”
Keeping true to the company’s ties to the Scotch industry, the Gravitas was blended in mind to pair it with Scotch Whiskey.
“At a glance”, here is a preview of this cigar line:
