STG announces multiple holiday items from multiple brands. CAO, Diesel, El Rey del Mundo and Punch all set to launch individual Holiday items to celebrate the Winter Season 2022.
If you’re in the market to buy someone close a gift for the holiday season, take a look at the 4 options below. They might just be the stocking stuffer you need!
Diesel is launching its “Sideshow” release in time for early holiday shopping. The limited-edition sampler features freakish looking frontmarks that will smoke as flawlessly as their classic counterparts.
Diesel Sideshow takes the full-bodied Diesel Unlimited blend through a veritable funhouse and gives the cigar lover a glimpse of what happens when the expert rollers of Tabacelera AJ Fernandez have free reign to sculpt tobacco into smokeable artforms.
The seven-smoke sampler includes one each of the following cigars which will only be available as part of this year’s Diesel Sideshow release: Diesel Frog Boy (4.5” x 60); Diesel Pin Head (5” x 54); Diesel Two-Headed Nightingale (6” x 60); Diesel Bearded Lady (6” x 46); Diesel Elephant Man (6” x 52); Diesel Bohemian Twins (7” x 38) and Diesel Strong Man (7” x 58).
Only 1,000 boxes have been made. The Diesel Sideshow ships on October 18 and will sell for $99.99.
Diesel Sideshow is released annually as a special, limited production holiday offering.
Diesel Unlimited is made with an Ecuadoran Habano wrapper, a Mexican San Andrés wrapper and a blend of Nicaraguan Condega and Estelí tobaccos.
CAO is kicking off the season with an advent calendar-inspired box that’s filled with a treasure trove of the brand’s highly-rated blends.
New for 2022, the CAO “12 Days” box follows the modern advent calendar format where a unique gift is hidden behind a door to be opened consecutively for a series of days leading up to the holidays.
CAO fans who purchase the 12-cigar box will receive a dozen Toro-sized smokes, each representing the brand’s top selling collections.
For a suggested retail price of $108.08, the twelve pack contains one each of the following CAO smokes: MX2 Toro (6” x 54); Italia Gondola (6.25” x 54); Brazilia Samba (6.25“ x 54); American Monument (6.25” x 54); Steel Horse Bullneck (6.5” x 52); Flathead Camshaft (5.5” x 54); Colombia Magdalena (6.25 “ x 52); Pilon Toro (6.25” x 54); Session Garage (5.25” x 54); Bones Blind Hughie (6” x 54); Zocalo Toro (6.25” x 54); BX3 Toro (6” x 54).
The CAO 12 Days box will ship to retailers this week and will be in select stores starting on or about October 17.
