Lure Cigars Co. LLC has officially announced its national launch. Lure CigarsTM was created by Lou Cross III to honor the memory of his late father Lou Cross Jr.

Cross Jr was a lifelong outdoorsman, avid fisherman, and cigar enthusiast. Shortly after celebrating his 90th birthday, Lou Jr. passed away in June of 2023, surrounded by family and friends. One of the last and fondest memories shared with him was enjoying a cigar and telling stories. The idea of Lure Cigars is to bring cigar enthusiasts together through ‘Tackle & Tobacco” and encourages cigar enthusiasts to “Smoke Great Cigars & Tell Tall Tales.TM”

Lure Cigars had a soft launch back in September of 2023. The blend features a Corojo Oscuro wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and fillers from Estelí, Ometepe, and Jalapa. The blend is currently available in five sizes. Each size is packaged in a ten-count bundle with Boveda humification.

  • The Lil’ Tony: 5×50 Robusto (MSRP $11.00)
  • The Big Lou:  6×52 Toro (MSRP $12.00)
  • The BLT: (Big Lou Torpedo) 6×54 Torpedo (MSRP $13.00)
