Cigar Dagger Ventures into Cigar Production with Royal Blood and Birthright Lines
The accessory company Cigar Dagger, specialized in cigar nub tools and picks, is teaming up with Artista Cigars in the Dominican Republic to enter the cigar business with their own lines, Royal Blood and Birthright.
Royal Blood is made with a Connecticut-grown broadleaf wrapper, a binder from the San Andrés region of Mexico, and fillers that includes ligero from Pennsylvania and Nicaragua, along with piloto cubano and corojo of undisclosed origin. The Royal Blood is available as a 6×54 Toro and a 5×52 Robusto. Both sizes come in boxes of 20 sticks.
Birthright has an undisclosed filler under an Indonesian binder and an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. There will be a 6×44 limited edition corona next to the 6×50 regular production toro. The toro comes in boxes of 10 with a 4-in-1 drawer tool. The limited edition comes in packs of five.
“After the success of Cigar Dagger, having our own cigar line seemed like the logical next step in the evolution of our brand,” said Harout Kalandjian, president of Cigar Dagger, in a press release. “We have worked towards the release of Royal Blood and Birthright for the last two years and we couldn’t be more thrilled with every aspect of these cigars from their complex flavour profiles to their robust construction and captivating aesthetics. They’re an absolute pleasure to smoke.”
Kalandjian says that both blends are full-flavored and medium-to-full in strength. He revealed that Cigar Dagger is planning to have a third line released by the end of the year, with another line being worked on for next spring.
