The Tobacconists’ Association of America (TAA) held a virtual convention today and announced the cigars for the 2021 TAA Exclusive Series. This is a series of cigars that will be offered exclusively for retail members of the TAA. The 2021 TAA Exclusive Series features 23 blends, 15 of which are 2021 releases and eight are ongoing releases.

Three cigars were previously announced as 2020 TAA Exclusive releases but did not make it to market. These cigars are the La Palina White Label and the La Flor Dominicana TAA 50 Oro Edicíon Natural and Maduro. The La Flor Dominicana cigars were originally announced in 2020 as the La Flor Dominicana TAA 52nd Oro Tecera Edición. All three of these cigars are now included in the 2021 TAA Exclusive Series.

With the exception of Illusione Cigars, all of the companies participating in the 2021 Exclusive Series have previously released TAA Exclusives. A cigar from the Diesel brand is Scandinavian Tobacco Group’s (STG). Previous STG releases have been under the CAO brand.
