The 262 Allegiance line will be getting a line extension. 262 Cigars President Clint Aaron has informed Cigar Coop and Stogie Geeks that a lancero line extension will be coming to the line. This becomes the fourth vitola in the line.
According to Aaron, the 262 Allegiance Lancero will be a regular production cigar. It will be a traditional lancero measuring 7 x 38. The lancero will come packaged 20 cigars per box. Like the remainder of the line, the Allegiance Lancero will be made at Tabacalera Carreras in Esteli, Nicaragua.
The lancero size is not a shock to many who know Aaron. Aaron is a known lancero fan and has said many times his goal is to convert every retail shop in America to a lancero shop.
