Ezra Zion Cigar Company will be creating shop exclusive for Lone Star State Cigar Company. The SP3 will be exclusively sold at Lone Star’s retail shops in Allen and Plano, Texas. Information of this announcement was received via a press release from Ezra Zion Cigar Company.
In the announcement, Steve Parker of Lone Star State Cigar Company said, “We hit up the Ezra Zion boys to do something special for our shops. I told them the profile we wanted and what our customers were purchasing most from their blends, and they hit it out of the park for us.”
“It’s an honor to be asked to make a house exclusive. Steve is a good friend and fellow Texan, so it’s a thrill to do a project with him.” stated Ezra Zion co-owner Chris Kelly.
The SP3 is a Nicaraguan puro featuring a dark corojo wrapper. It will be launched in three sizes. The SP3 is named for Stephen Parker III, the owner’s son and namesake.
“Making a cigar as a tribute has a long tradition in this industry. We’re glad we could be a part of a project that represents a Father’s love for his son.” added Kyle Hoover, co-owner of Ezra Zion.
The SP3 will be launched at two events beginning 5pm on September 4th and 6th at the Allen and Plano stores respectively.
The SP3 becomes what could be considered the third shop exclusive this year. Earlier this year, Ezra Zion released The Collective for the Cigar Federation store. This was followed up by the Kairos, an exclusive for the Blessed Leaf ministry.
At a glance, here is a look at the SP3:
The factory of origin for the SP3 will remain undisclosed. The blend is described as a “Dark Corojo over a blend of tobaccos from several valleys in Nicaragua.”
As mentioned, the SP3 is being released in three sizes. The price point will be between $6.50 and $7.50 depending on the vitola size. Production numbers are not being disclosed for the SP3.
