Scandinavian Tobacco Group has announced it is bringing back the Evelio brand.
Evelio is described as a mild cigar that contains a sweet cap. It’s produced at the Quesada’s MATASA factory in the Dominican Republic. The cigar features an Ecuadorian wrapper over Dominican binder and fillers. It comes in four sizes (Corona, Robusto, Toro, and Churchill) – each presented in 20-count boxes.
In a press release, Kevin Irvine, product coordinator of Scandinavian Tobacco Group’s (STG) Online and Retail division said, “Evelio is the ultimate, anytime cigar. The smooth-smoking blend goes just as well with a morning cup of coffee or afternoon stroll as it does with unwinding at the end of a day. Evelio sits right in the sweet spot, too, no pun intended, of the price range for handmade, sweet-tipped smokes, delivering a lot of value for the money.”
Evelio is currently making its way to retailers. Distribution is being handled by Meier & Dutch.
