Miami Cigar & Company has announced that it will be distributing Barrel Aged by Karl Malone, a cigar that was introduced at the 2018 International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers (IPCPR) trade show and convention. This cigar is a collaboration between retired NBA player Marl Malone and La Aurora Cigars.
“I’ve loved cigars and enjoying them with friends for most of my life,” stated Malone in a press release. “Guillermo and the wonderful people at La Aurora have been so kind to me and working with them has been an amazing process. I’m really looking forward to enjoying this special blend, aged in rum barrels, with as many people as I can in the coming months. Between La Aurora’s commitment to excellence and my commitment to the same, I know this will be special.”
“After spending time with Karl, we knew he’d be an excellent addition to the Miami Cigar distribution family” Jason Wood, Miami Cigar & Company Vice President added. “From day one he’s been a pleasure to work with and fits right in to our family business atmosphere.”
Barrel Aged by Karl Malone features an Ecuadorian wrapper, Brazilian binder and filler tobaccos from Peru, Nicaragua, Brazil and the Dominican Republic. This cigar will be available as a Churchill, Robusto, Belicso and Sumo Toro. It will begin shipping to retailers in March 2019. MSRP ranges from $9-$12.
