Lit Newsletter 8/20/12 New In Our Humidor



New in our Humidor

This is the time of year when cigar makers are releasing all of their new products into the marketplace. We've received some great new stuff for you to try out on your next visit:
San Cristobal Elegancia - This is actually a line that's been around for a year or so, but is new to Lit. Made by the Garcia family in Nicaragua, the Elegancia is a mild to medium bodied cigar that features a silky Ecuadorian grown Connecticut Shade wrapper. Lots of creamy flavor and complexity without all the strength. Here's a thorough blog review.
Torano Exodus 50 Years Salomon - The Exodus 50 Years blend has been a big hit for us and has already made the Cigar Aficionado Top 25 list. This is a new size, one that we rarely see due to the difficulty in rolling it. These were produced in very limited quantities and won't last long.
Tatuaje Cojonu 2012 - This is a box pressed version of the popular Cojonu line that comes in either a Sumatra or Habano wrapper. Full bodied and spicy, it has plenty of the pepper and kick we've come to expect from Pete Johnson's cigars.
Tatuaje Old Man and the C gift set - The 2012 version of the Old Man and the C features a Culebra and a Lancero in the Tatuaje Black blend. The 2011 version sold out in just a few weeks, so if you'd like to try this unique cigar out, pick them up soon. Here is a link with everything you'd ever want to know about this cigar, courtesy of the good folks at halfwheel.
Jaime Garcia Limited Edition 2012 - A very unique smoke, featuring a full bodied blend surrounded by a Connecticut Shade grown wrapper. This cigar also features a binder made of the mythical Pelo de Oro leaf. We have two boxes in stock and won't be getting any more in as the limited supply is already sold out. Here is a great video of Jaime and Pepin Garcia talking about Pelo de Oro tobacco.
We also have new sizes in all 3 La Aroma de Cuba lines, the original line El Jefe, the Edicion Especial #55, and the Mi Amor El Duque.

Washington Cigar & Spirits Festival

We're only seven weeks away from the Washington Cigar & Spirits Festival, the biggest cigar event in the Northwest! We urge you to get your tickets early, as last year's event sold out and we expect the same this year.
We're doing this year's event bigger and better than last year, with some great special guests and the best prize giveaways we've ever done, including a custom cigar themed oil painting valued at $2500!
For more information on this event, click here to visit the WCSF page on the casino website with all of our vendors and details.
Happy Smoking!
