Latitude Zero, a brand in the Scandinavian Tobacco Group (STG) portfolio that pays homage to Ecuador’s tobacco growing regions, is getting a new blend known as the Latitude Zero Signature. It’s a blend that comes from the NACSA factory in Nicaragua and is blended by Raul Disla.
The blend features tobaccos from the Oliva Tobacco Company. This is highlighted by an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder, and a combination of Nicaraguan Habano, Dominican Habano, and Connecticut Broadleaf fillers. It will be available in three sizes (Robusto, Toro, and Gordo) each presented in 20-count boxes.
“Latitude Zero Signature is rich and refined with an intriguing spice. It complements the original Latitude Zero blend, offering a completely unique smoking experience. This cigar smokes like an ultra-premium, so it’s a great choice for someone who wants the utmost in tobacco quality and complexity at a great price point,” commented Kevin Irvine, product coordinator of STG’s Online and Retail division.
For the blend, Raul Disla selected a robust assortment of Nicaraguan Habano, Dominican Habano, and Connecticut Broadleaf fillers, and a Nicaraguan Habano binder. He crowned Latitude Zero Signature with Ecuadoran Sumatra leaf from the lush, cloud-covered equatorial growing region from which the Latitude Zero brand takes its name. The result is a full-bodied smoke, brimming with notes of pepper, leather, cream and an “alluring” spice.
Distribution for Latitude Zero is handled by Meier & Dutch Cigar distributors.
