Glen Case and Kristoff Cigars showed up with a Vengeance – literally.
For 2018, Kristoff Cigars’ signature release was the Kristoff Vengeance. At one time, Vengeance was a brand produced by Case that did not have the Kristoff name on it. In 2011, the Vengeance line was rebranded as the Kristoff GC Signature Series. However, the blend has returned with a different tobacco composition. While the previous Vengeance was highlighted by a Brazilian Maduro, the 2018 Kristoff Vengeance features a different blend, incorporating a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, Indonesian binder, and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. It is the first Connecticut Broadleaf release from Kristoff. It is available in four sizes: Robusto (5 x 50), Toro (6 1/4 x 54) , Perfecto (6 1/2 x 60), and 6 x 60. Each size is presented in 20-count boxes.
Case actually had an early release of the Kristoff Vengeance to the Tobacconist Association of America (TAA). While it wasn’t an exclusive to the TAA, it was offered to those retailers first. As a result, this was the first time many retailers were getting acclimated to this line.
Kristoff also showed off a line of 5 x 44 Corona line extensions to its Kristoff Connecticut, Kristoff Habano and Kristoff Maduro lines. The cigars are sold in 20-count bundles and the bundles can go into a three-compartment tray (not pictured) to house each of the cigars.
