First, there was Chillin’ Moose, then there was Bull Moose. On March 1st, Forged Cigar Company will release a third installment of the Chillin’ Moose franchise with the Shady Moose. Shady Moose will introduce an Ecuadorian Connecticut-wrapped offering in the Chillin’ Moose series.

Shady Moose is a six-country blend highlighted by an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Mexican binder, and fillers from the United States, Colombia, Nicaragua, and the Dominican Republic. Production comes from Scandinavian Tobacco Group (STG)’s HATSA factory in Danlí, Honduras. Shady Moose is being released in three sizes: Robusto, Toro, and Gigante – each presented in ten-count boxes. The Toro size is a first for the Chillin’ Moose franchise.

“With Shady Moose, we built a great, anytime, anywhere blend that takes the smooth-smoking properties of a Connecticut Shade cigar and amps it up with the right amount of complexity and spice. And we didn’t stop there. We added in the cool Moose imagery and locked in an unbelievable price point. Now we’re waiting for Shady Moose to take a run at the internet, just like Bull Moose did last year. We’re ready for it. The question is…are you?” said John Hakim, brand manager of Chillin’ Moose in a press release.

Shady Moose cigars will be distributed by Forged Cigar Company.
