Powstanie Cigars, the brand owned by Mike and Greg Mike Szczepankiewicz, has announced it is taking orders for the third installment of its limited-edition SBC series, the Powstanie SBC 20.
SBC stands for Surrounded by Champions. It is a cigar that pays homage to the “champions” who surround the brand. Powstanie mentions Mike Palmer and Chet Atwell of the Szczepankiewicz’s retail operation Cigar Hustler as two such “champions.”
All of the SBC releases have featured barber pole wrappers. This time the SBC 20 barber pole uses Ecuadorian Habano and Brazilian Mata Fina wrappers over Nicaraguan binder and filler. SBC 20 comes in one size – a 5 1/2 x 46 Corona Gorda. A total of 250 20-count boxes have been produced.
Powstanie SBC 20 is scheduled to ship next week.
