The 1502 XO, a cigar that was unveiled at the 2015 IPCPR Trade Show is getting ready to make its retail debut. Global Premium Cigars founder and CEO Enrique Sanchez Icaza announced on Episode 173 of Stogie Geeks that the 1502 XO will launch on March 5, 2016 at an event being held at Wooden Indian Tobacco Shop in Havertown, Pennsylvania.

Sanchez has said the 1502 XO will be an annual limited production line. Each year, the cigar will be released in a different size.  For the 2016 release, the 1502 XO will be a 6 x 50 box-pressed toro.  A total of 1502 ten count boxes will be produced. The boxes will be individually numbered and each cigar’s band will have a serial number.

Details of the blend of the 1502 XO have not been disclosed, but the signature feature of the blend is the incorporation of 18 year old tobacco.
