Eddie Ortega has teamed up with Manassas Virginia retailer Tobaccology to release “The Glynn Loope Project – Take a Stand” cigar. While the cigar pays tribute to Cigar Rights of America (CRA) Executive Director Glynn Loope, the cigar was put in place to commemorate the work around the fight for cigar rights. For every box sold, $10.00 will be donated to CRA.
The cigar is a 4 x 60 cigar. It is packaged in 20 count boxes and according to Eddie Ortega, only 100 boxes have been made.
Loope told Stogie Geeks that the project was a complete surprise to him. “I had nothing to do with it. It was an amazing gesture by both Brett (Fry) and Tobaccology and Eddie.”
“I haven’t seen it. I haven’t smoked it, but I will on (the following) Monday, ” added Loope.
