Cigar News: Fuerte y Libre Cigars Inc Announces The Avalanche

Fuerte y Libre Cigars Inc. has announced the upcoming availability of the new Avalanche. Available in two vitolas, a Toro (6X50) and a Robusto (5X52) the Avalanche was a work in progress for 18 months to create a unique Mild cigar loaded with subtle Dominican flavor.

Greg Free, President of Fuerte y Libre Cigars Inc. noted:

“Our strategy from the start of Fuerte y Libre was to introduce new lines, not based on a calendar or clock but instead to allow a blend to tell us that it’s ready for release. When you look out over the factory floor and see everyone nodding affirmatively, in quiet contemplation, as they smoke the Avalanche final blend, you know it’s time.”

The new Avalanche blend is described as:

  • Wrapper – Ecuadorean Connecticut
  • Binder – Dominican
  • Filler – Dominican

The mild-body/strength of the cigar blend, fills out the line on the mild end of the spectrum while still providing solid flavor notes representative of the Cibao Valley. The compamy expects the blend to allow them touch on the solid market for mild cigars. It provides an entry point for new smokers and is also a great first cigar of the day for seasoned aficionados.

Pricing has been set at an MSRP of $10.50-$11.50 and each vitola will come packaged in 21-count boxes.

Manufactured in Tamboril, Dominican Republic at Tabacalera El Hoyito with tobaccos from Ecuador and The Dominican Republic

Available to all retail partners after September 29th, 2022
