At this week’s IPCPR Trade Show Veritas Cigars is showcasing its Torch Connecticut, Torch Habano, and 412 lines. The company has recently partnered with James Brown and Fabrica Oveja Negra to produce these Nicaraguan-made blends. The Torch Connecticut features an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Indonesian binder, and Nicaraguan fillers. The cigar is available in four sizes: Robusto (5 x 50), Toro (6 x 50), Torpedo (6 1/4 x 52), and Gran Toro (6 x 60).
The Torch Habano features a Sun Grown Ecuadorian Habano wrapper and Nicaraguan binder and fillers. The cigar is available in four sizes: Robusto (5 x 50), Toro (6 x 50), Torpedo (6 1/4 x 52), and Gran Toro (6 x 60).
Quite differently, the 412 is inspired for its use of Pennsylvania tobacco (412 is the area code of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania). This blend features a Pennsylvania Broadleaf Maduro wrapper, San Andres Mexican binder, and fillers consisting of double ligero from Condega and Estelí along with Pennsylvania tobacco. The cigar is available in a 6 x 54 Toro.
Known collectively as “Nueva Nica”, the three lines will be launched at an event to be held on July 21, 2017 at BnB Cigars in Philadelphia. “Vince has been waiting on this for a while and I was happy to oblige him with the National Launch of our highly anticipated lines,” said Chris Weber CEO of Veritas in a press release. “We are happy to release this product at a shop that’s in my back yard. It is a good feeling to have this here near my home. James and I worked hard on this and we are very proud of the results we’ve achieved.”
