Hammer + Sickle Cigars has informed retailers that a limited production line extension is coming to their Berlin Wall Series. The Berlin Wall Celebration Short Corona will become the fourth vitola in the line in the form of a 4 3/4 x 46 cigar. The launch of the Celebration Short Corona is meant to coincide with the 25th Anniversary that the Berlin Wall was torn down.
The Berlin Wall Series was launched back in 2011. It was the second line to be launched by Hammer + Sickle cigars. While the Celebration Short Corona commemorates the 25th anniversary of the tearing down of the Berlin Wall (November 9), the Berlin Wall Series as a whole was also designed to commemorate the historical significance of that event. According to the web site: “No event in history represents the collapse of communism in Russia and Eastern Europe more obviously than the fall of the Berlin Wall. To celebrate this turn, we developed the Berlin Wall Series cigars.”
The Celebration Short Corona becomes the first new size since the launch of the Berlin Wall Series. The original three vitolas are available in marble boxes with a cold-pressed steel adornment of the famed Berlin Brandenburg Gate. The Celebration Short Corona will currently be offered in 20 count bundles. A total of 5,000 cigars has been made available at this time. Like the original three vitolas, the Celebration Corona will feature the unique copper metal band.
