Last week we reported on five event offerings that would be offered at the 2014 DC Tweet-Up. Two of the offerings are cigars that are being provided by Fabricas Unidas. Cigar Coop has now learned additional details around these offerings. The new robusto sized Asylum 13 Ogre offering will be packaged with a new size from Edgar Hoill’s EH brand and will be called “Don’t Shoot the Ogre”.
“Don’t Shoot the Ogre” will be a ten pack sampler consisting of five Asylum 13 Ogre in a robusto format and five Edgar Hoill EH cigars in a lancero format. We also have learned that the Asylum 13 Ogre robusto will be a 5 x 50 vitola, but details on the lancero size were not available at this time.
The Asylum 13 Ogre is a barberpole consisting of a candela and a maduro wrapper. The blend was launched last year in a 7 x 70 format. The robusto marks the first new size in the line.
The Edgar Hoill EH was the first cigar launched by Edgar Hoill’s brand under Christian Eiroa’s Fabricas Unidas umbrella. The cigar was launched in three vitolas early last year.
The DC Tweet-up will take place at various cigar retail shops in the Washington DC area on March 14th and March 15th. The event is run by the B&B Cigar Club. Ticket packages are now on sale for the event. As we reported last week, additional cigars that will be available include Miami Cigar and Company’s KILO, a return of the RoMa Craft Tobac Formorian, and Dante Cigars’ new Vita Nova.
