Urbano Cigars’ Third Salvo: Handmade Mixed-Filler Bundled Cigars … Priced Under $1.50
This February, Matt Urbano, founder and president of Urbano Cigars, Inc., introduced his top-tier, value-priced handmade bundled cigars, in 5 wrappers and 5 shapes. These 100% long-filler, handmade cigars use only Dominican tobaccos from his top-rated boutique premium boxed cigar production.
Urbano now announces his third line … mixed-filler, value-priced handmade bundled cigars, this time in two wrappers and 4 classic shapes. The filler is picadura (trimmed remnants) from his boutique cigar lines. Also, like the long-filler Economy Bundles, each bunch is blended to match its corresponding wrapper, insuring a more harmonious smoking profile.
To enhance smoking satisfaction even more, the line’s filler tobaccos are triple-fermented and aged a full 2 years. The more painstaking triple fermentation “sweats” the tobacco for 3 successive durations, each at a lower temperature. This gentler, slower process purges the leaves of more ammonia-producing impurities than commonly-used two-stage fermentation. All the company’s cigars … Urbano boxed boutiques, and long- and mixed-filler Economy Bundles alike ... maintain their flavor to a nub, without the bitterness found even in the top-shelf premiums.
The mixed-filler bunch combines a supporting “backbone” of full-length leaf(ves), surrounded by medium-length (1” to 3”) picadura. The worker then wraps the bunched filler in 2 binder leaves, laid lengthwise instead of spirally, one outside the other. The combined long-leaf spine and extra binder make a solid enough cigar to consistently grow 2" ashes ... contrasting with the prematurely-falling ashes of lower-quality picadura cigars. Finally, a double-capped head prevents the annoyance of the cap unraveling in the mouth.
These mixed-fill cigars are now offered in Maduro and Connecticut Shade wrapper blends, which are enjoying the greatest sales and receiving several 90+ media ratings ... especially the Connecticut Shade, for its surprisingly full flavor and hearty medium body.
The cigar comes in Robusto, Toro, Churchill, and Torpedo. The 6" x 60 in Urbano’s other cigar lines may appear at IPCPR 2012 … Urbano observes, “This new, oversized shape is breaking loose all over the cigar landscape. Smokers are exploring huge-girth cigars, and 6” x 60 is the most asked-for size.”
These cigars save money by being unbanded and cellophane-bundled. More important than bands, each cigar is protected in its individual cellophane sleeve. All these mixed-filler cigars retail below $1.50. (Urbano has noted some retailers breaking bundles and selling single sticks for up to $3.00.) The cigars are presented 25 to a bundle ... Urbano reminds readers, “Be sure to check the cigar count, when comparison shopping. Some competitors are now reducing bundle count to 20, and we’ve even seen 16-cigar bundles.
“Urbano mixed-filler Economy Bundles are available now, as are all Urbano cigars. Both of our Economy Bundle lines and our boutique premium cigars are also offered direct to smokers, on our Web site, www.UrbanoCigars.com, if they have no Urbano retailer in their zip code.”
