KOTL Cigar Club April 2024

KOTL Cigar Club April 2024

Ah, April has arrived, bringing with it the classic pranks, the hunt for colorful eggs hidden by a mischievous rabbit, and the unavoidable task of tax preparations. Yet, amidst these challenges, there's a bright side: spring is officially in the air, and for cigar enthusiasts, it's a time to indulge in our beloved hobby.

The King of the Leaf Premium Cigar Club continues to grow rapidly, and we're deeply appreciative of our members' unwavering support and enthusiasm. Fresh from our experience at the Premium Cigar Association Trade Show in Las Vegas, we're brimming with excitement about the exceptional offerings the King of the Leaf has in store for the months ahead.

Let's delve into this month's selection, shall we? April's lineup is truly exceptional. First up, we're thrilled to present a highly sought-after, limited cigar blended exclusively for a Los Angeles lounge by AJ Fernandez. Known as The Goat, this cigar is not available anywhere else as of this post. We're delighted to announce that every member of the KOTL Cigar Club will receive one in their pack. Let's lead the way and show others how it's done! The Goat boasts a retail value of $16, and we're proud to include it in the April pack.

Next on the list is the inaugural release from Cigar Daggers, Royal Blood. While we included the Robusto version in our pack back in September 2023, this time, we're featuring the Toro size, which we believe perfectly complements the blend.

Our third to fifth cigars are equally impressive. They include the collaboration between Espinosa and Guy Fieri, Knuckle Sandwich, Foundation Cigar Company's El Güegüense, and the 2020 edition of Punch's Chop Suey Limited Edition. What a lineup!
