After making its initial debut at the International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association (IPCPR) 2016 trade show, a new cigar is being introduced to expand General Cigar’s Odyssey cigar line.
Odyssey Maduro features a deeper, darker Nicaraguan Habano wrapper and signature Honduran tobaccos for the binder and Nicaraguan filler. While the price point is budget friendly, General Cigar spared to expense in making sure the cigar was packed with premium tobaccos and handmade like much of its portfolio of premium cigar brands. Odyssey Maduro’s blends are medium-bodied and have a subtle spiciness, earthiness and clean finish. Odyssey Maduro will come in 20-count boxes and will be available in five vitolas: Corona (5 1/2 x 43), Robusto (5 x 50), Toro (6 x 50), Churchill (7 x 48), Gigante (6 x 60). The SRP per cigar ranges between $1.69 and $2.59.
“Given its accessible price point, Odyssey Maduro is a no-brainer for the tenured cigar smoker who’s looking to change up his or her smoking repertoire with something new. Odyssey is one of the best cigar values on the market today and we’re sure that the new Maduro version will be a fast selling addition to the line,” commented Jen Moody, brand manager for Odyssey.
