At the 2018 IPCPR Trade Show, Andre Farkas discussed a project under the White Label Project (WLP) brand known as Lemons to Lemonade. This release has now begun to surface at retailers nationwide.

WLP is a mechanism that is used for experimental blends, mash-ups, and cigars made in error. The name Lemons to Lemonade is appropriate for a WLP release. The story of this project is that the wrapper being used for the blend was not meshing well with the other tobaccos, so the wrapper was switched to a San Andres Maduro which proved to be quite satisfying to Farkas. Remaining blend details and factory have not been disclosed.

There are two vitolas in Lemons to Lemonade. “Part 1” is a 5 x 52 Robusto while “Part 2” is a 6 x 52 Toro. The cigars are shipped in 20-count newspaper wrapped bundles. Pricing is set at $8.70 per cigar for Part 1 and $9.10 per cigar for Part 2.
