News: Epicurean to Launch AG Azul at IPCPR
Steve Ysidron’s Epicurean Cigars is set to release its third line, AG Azul. The line follows Ysidron’s Armando Gutierrez and Gonzo releases in spring. For the new line, Ysidron returns to the Oliva family’s TABOLISA, a factory he partnered with while at Savinelli. AG Azulwill feature a sun grown habano wrapper with a Honduran binder over Jalapa and Estelí fillers from 2008.
AG Azul will debut in four sizes:
- Justus (6 x 60)
- Petit Corona (5 1/2 x 48)
- Toro (6 x 50)
- Trabajador (5 x 54)
Ysidron says the cigars will be limited to 700 boxes for each size, although he might increase that to a total of 1,000 per vitola depending on tobacco availability.
