Felipe Gregorio Cigars has announced their second release of their Power Series. The Felipe Gregorio Power 2014 will make its debut at the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show. This is a line of cigars that is only released once every seven years.
The Power series was launched back in 2007. The Power 2007 featured tobacco from a 2000 crop. The Power 2014 follows suit by using seven year old tobacco from 2007.
The Power 2014 will be launched in four frontmarks with a limited production of 1,000 boxes per size. The company says there will not be another release for seven years (2021).
The Power 2014 features what the company calls the “333” rule: Triple Fermentation, Triple Inspection, and Triple Cap.
