At the 2023 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Show, Howard G Cigars introduced a two-blend set called “The Perfect Round.” It’s also the company’s first foray into using Dominican tobaccos.

Sports has been a theme with several lines in the Howard G portfolio – most notably football. Founder Howard Gumbs Jr has partnered with former NFL All-Pro players Leon Seary and Ike Taylor, who each have their own brands. The trio of Gumbs, Searcy, and Taylor also enjoy golfing and have participated in several tournaments.

The Perfect Round has two blends: The Front 9 is designed to be a lighter cigar when you tee off in the morning. The Back 9 is intended to be an afternoon smoke that is bolder – maybe after having a nice lunch. The Front 9 consists of a Connecticut Shade wrapper over a Dominican binder and filler. The blend comprises a Sun Grown Habano over Dominican binder and filler. Both cigar comes in one size – a 7 x 52 format. Both cigar blends are included in an 18-count box – nine of the Front 9 blend and nine of the Back 9 blend. Both blends are arranged in an alternating fashion in the box. Pricing is set at $16.00 per cigar.

The cigars are scheduled to ship this month.
