|Epicurean Gonzo Santeria Chicken Bones|
At the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show, Epicurean Cigars will launch the Gonzo Santeria Chicken Bones. This will be a line extension to the Gonzo Santeria line that made its debut earlier this year. Chicken Bones will introduce a 5 x 30 long filler vitola into the mix.
According to Epicurean Cigars founder Steven Ysidron, the Chicken Bones will be packaged in 10 count paper wrapped bundles. These cigars will also come unbanded. While designed to be a small smoke, Ysidron says the long filler ends up slowing the burn rate during the smoking experience.
Epicurean Cigars has a very busy 2014 planned. Earlier this year, the Santeria line made its debut. The company also plans on launching the Carnavale and Santeria Mojo lines at this year’s trade whow. Epicurean Cigar was named one of our 2014 Cigar Coop Five Boutiques to Watch.
