The Grand Architect coming from Hiram & Solomon. It’s a new blend which comes in three sizes. The cigars are being produced by Plaseicna Cigars in Esteli, Nicaragua.

The cigar comes in a 5×50 Robusto, 6×52 Toro, and a 6×60 Gordo. It is a regular production cigar and will be offered to the international Hiram & Solomon distributors as well. The filler is from Nicaragua and Paraguay. The binder and wrapper are both Nicaraguan.

It is not the first time that Hiram & Solomon used tobacco from Paraguay. The Hiram & Solomon Entered Apprentice and the Hiram & Solomon Veiled Prophet also utilize tobacco from the country. It is also not the first time that the brand uses Plasencia Cigars as their manufacturer.


Hiram & Solomon cigars lean heavy on their freemason background. Both the logo and the names of their blends are referrals to the Freemasons. The Grand Architect does the same. It is a reference to the Divine Being being known as humanity’s Master Builder or Great Architect. And that’s one of the founding principles of the Freemasons.

The cigars have been released in the United States. When the cigars will be available for the international distribution partners of Hiram & Solomon has not yet been confirmed. Most likely, the international distribution will start after the Intertabac Trade Show in Dortmund. The Intertabac Trade Show takes place on the third weekend of September.
