The Lou Rod Snub Nose, a 4 1/2 x 60 version of Lou Rodriguez Cigars’ Lou Rod will officially be launched at the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show.

The Snub Nose is the second vitola in the value-priced, 60 ring gauge Lou Rod.  The Lou Rod was launched in a 6 x 60 at the 2013 IPCPR Trade Show.  Word of the Snub Nose first began to surface last August.  The Snub Nose made a debut at the Lite Up Charlotte cigar festival in Charlotte, North Carolina this past October.  Since then the cigar has been seen in a limited fashion.
Like the original Lou Rod line, the Snub Nose will be packaged in cabinet boxes of 50.  It will have a suggested retail price of $4.95.
