It’s hard to believe that 262 Cigars is now celebrating its fifth anniversary in the cigar business. Owner and founder Clint Aaron continues to grow his line. 2015 has proven to be a busy year. He’s introduced a lancero vitola to the 262 Allegiance line. He’s also launched an all-new line called Peacefield which is a value-priced Cuban sandwich available in three blends Connecicut, Habano and Maduro.
We caught up with Aaron at the Southern Cigar Festival, where he discussed these new offerings. Aaron talks about his progress on how he is turning every shop in America into a lancero shop, his relationship with Tabacalera Carreras (who makes Allegiance and Peacefield), his inroads into the Texas cigar market, and he gives us some thoughts on the limited edition craze of 2015.
