Fox Cigar Bar – Foxtoberfest Updates / Exclusive Cigar Blends
As we are closing in on the weekend, Jeremy and I are getting more and more anxious. Our friends at Fox Cigar Bar throw a huge annual beer and cigar bash. This year, they piled on the manufacturers who will attend as well as added a second day to the itinerary which will consist of a day of golfing with them. You can read more about the activities going down and the manufacturers involved here.
Today I wanted to concentrate on a few of the other perks that will be available to attendees, particularly the blends that will be released for the event exclusively. We start with the release from Ortega Cigar Company. This will be a 6.5 x 38 lancero that will only be available at Fox Cigar Bar’s Foxtoberfest. While I don’t have specific blend information, Halfwheel.com reports that it is not simply a line extension but a blend all of it’s own. Gotta love that size too. The blend will be called “The Fox” and it carries the same band design as the Wild Bunch Eddie has been working with this year. No price points on these guys yet, but I do know that at least one is included with you VIP ticket. Here are a few pictures Cliff and Eddie have posted of the packaging and the cigar itself:
Next on the list is a special event cigar blended exclusively for Foxtoberfest from La Flor Dominicana. Anthony Cantelmo shot over blend specifics, price points, batch size, and pictures of the cigar. It will be a 6.5 x 54 toro-ish vitola with a slight box press to it. The wrapper consists of a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper around a Comeroon Binder and Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. The cigars will run $8 a stick and will come 10 count boxes. Only 150 boxes will be produced and available at Foxtoberfest. One of these should be included in the VIP package as well.
And finally, while it’s not an event-sepecific release, as per Fox Cigar Bar, Foxtoberfest will be one of the first places in the nation where you will be able to purchase Ashton’s newest creation the San Cristobal Revelation. This new release features an Ecuadorian Sumatran wrapper, the same wrapper used on Ashton’s Virgin Sun Grown of ‘VSG’ Cigar only using a lower “viso” priming wrapped around Nicaraguan binder and fillers. The cigar will come in 5 sizes, 3 of which are box-pressed and will carry a price point between $6.95 and $9.50 a cigar. This should be a regular production cigar and will come packaged in boxes of 24. One of these should be included in the VIP package as well.
With all that being said, Foxtoberfest is going to be an action-packed event and can quite honestly become the Southwest’s premier event. If you plan on attending let us know. We would love to meet ya and share a smoke with you.
