British retailer Mitchell Orchant is set to introduce Inca – Secret Blend to the U.S. but here’s the interesting part, the cigar is 100% Peruvian tobacco.
I’ve been working on creating a new and unique cigar for the last 3 years and have finally been able to release the first batch of 500 boxes in two sizes. It’s unique because it’s the only 100% Peruvian cigar on the market. 100% Hand made with premium long filler aged tobacco. I launched a similar Peruvian cigar to the UK market 3 years ago and it is now our best-selling New World brand in the UK.
The cigar is named after the Inca Empire from the 13th century. According to the website, it uses 3-year aged Peruvian tobacco and possesses “a unique taste profile that is special to Peru. The pleasant sweet and creamy flavor profile provides a smooth and clean finish on the palate”. The cigar is set for a Summer release and will presumably make an appearance at the IPCPR trade show.
The cigars are rolled at Tabacalera del Oriente in Peru and will initially come in two sizes:
- Tambo (6 × 50) — $9.50 (Cabinet of 20, $190) — 500 boxes
- Imperio (6 × 60) — $10.25 (Cabinet of 20, $205) — 500 boxes
