Last month came word that cigar industry veteran Michael Argenti was returning to the cigar industry with a new company called La Gran Llave. At that time the company announced its first release, the self-titled La Gran Llave cigar. Last month at the Tobacco Plus Expo (TPE) in Las Vegas, La Gran Llave introduced a second line coming to market, the value-priced LGL Limited.
LGL Limited will come in six sizes and priced affordably between $1.99 and $3.24 MSRP. The cigars feature Nicaraguan long-filler, a Nicaraguan binder, and are wrapped with an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper. The cigars are packaged in twenty count Spanish Cedar protected bundles. The LGL Limited is being made in collaboration with Julio Pozo.
Argenti is best known for his role as Executive Vice President of Tabacalera Perdomo S.A.; and most recently as the President and Chief Executive Officer of Berger & Argenti. He is partnering with Angel Aguayo for La Gran Llave. The name La Gran Llave translates to “The Big Key”.
