|EH Box Pressed|
Edgar Hoill’s EH line of cigars showcased quite a bit of line extensions at the 2014 IPCPR Trade. On display were two new announced vitolas were box-pressed versions of the three original vitolas in the EH cigar line as well as a new 6 1/4 x 60 vitola called Lealtad. EH Cigars has also added rounded 4 x 44 called the EH Cabroncito.
The EH line of cigars was the first line released by Edgar Hoill Cigars. Edgar Hoill Cigars is a partnership between Hoill and Christian Eiroa. Late in 2012, it was announced that Hoill would be joining CLE Cigar Company (then Fabricas Unidas) as the fourth brand under that umbrella.
In addition to the box-pressed cigars, EH Cigars displayed the EH Lancero that was released earlier this year. The new additions bring the total frontmarks that have been made in this line to nine.
