Pier 28 Premium Cigars has added its first lancero into its portfolio. The cigar is an extension to the Pier 28 Habano, the company’s first blend.
According to brand owner Tim Wong, the Pier 28 Habano Lancero uses the same blend as the rest of the Pier 28 Habano line. The blend consists of an Ecuadorian Habano Cafe wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and a combination of Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers. As with all Pier 28 Cigars, the Pier 28 Habano cigar originates from Erik Espinosa’s La Zona factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. Wong says the 7 1/2 x 38 format intensifies the sweetness of the blend.
The lancero will come in 10-count flat boxes as opposed to the 20-count cabinet boxes even across the rest of the Pier 28 Habano. Pricing is set at $8.99 per cigar.
