262 Cigars will be adding a new line extension to its Paradigm line. The 262 Paradigm Corona will become the seventh frontmark released in the Paradigm line – the first line launched by 262 Cigars. Information on this announcement was made available on the 262 Cigars web-site.
The 262 Corona will be released in March 2014. It will be a retail-exclusive vitola to Burns Tobacconist East in Chattanooga, Tennessee for six months before being made generally available nationwide. A launch event is scheduled at Burns Tobacconist East for March 27th.
The addition of the Corona gives all of the current 262 lines a frontmark in this shape – joining the 262 Ideology and 262 Revere lines.
The 262 Paradigm was an Honorable Mention on our 2010 Cigars of the Year. The 262 Paradigm Lancero, released in 2012 finished as our #4 Line Extension for that year.
Meanwhile the company has teased about a spring release which is being called its “Seasonal Blend”, but the official name has still to be announced.
