MLB Cigar Ventures will formally launch its second blend under its David P. Ehlrich brand. The David P. Ehlrich PLM Series will make its debut at a June 9th launch event being held at Underground Cigar Shop, located in Fort Worth, Texas.
The David P. Ehlrich PLM Series will introduce MLB Cigar Ventures’ first maduro offering. The cigar is highlighted by a San Andres Maduro wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and a combination of Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers. The cigar will be available in five sizes: Corona (5 1/2 x 44); Robusto (5 x 52); Toro (6 x 50); Gordo (6 x 60); and Churchill (7 x 47). Each size is presented in 20 count boxes. The PLM joins the David P. Ehlrich Tremont as cigars MLB Cigar Ventures is producing out of Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr’s Tabacalera La Alianza factory in the Dominican Republic.
The name PLM are the initials for Paul L. MacDonald. The David P. Ehlrich brand is a collaboration between company founder Mike Bellody and his national sales manager Barry MacDonald, the son of Paul L. MacDonald. David P. Ehrlich was the name of a historic tobacconist shop that was located in the city of Boston. It was a shop owned by the MacDonald family for almost 40 years. While the store is no longer in operation, MacDonald and Bellody worked to bring back the brand as a cigar line.
“I’m extremely excited to begin to widely distribute this incredible cigar to fine tobacco stores all over the U.S. I’m very proud of this blend and believe it’ll be a cigar that gains immediate widespread accolades throughout the market. As with the original David P. Ehrlich Tremont, Barry and I are honored to have once again worked with Ernesto Perez Carrillo on the creation of this cigar blend,” commented Mike Bellody in a press release.
Bellody also informed Cigar Coop that a third blend under the David P. Ehlrich line, the David P. Ehlrich 150th Aniversario will also make its debut later this year and could be showcased at the 2018 IPCPR Trade Show scheduled to open in Las Vegas Nevada on July 14th.
The June 9th event at Underground is scheduled to begin at 4pm.
