KOTL Cigar Club July 2024

Ahhh, July – the time for unbearable heat, BBQ weekends, and surf and turf. With the scorching days ahead, you might find yourself opting for shorter smoking sessions. Remember to stay cool, hydrated, and smoky!

Last month, we sent out our exclusive 4th of July cigar, Independence Day. We hope you enjoyed it! The feedback has been phenomenal, and we sold out of the remaining stock within a week.

Check out Pick Jimmy's YouTube channel for the top 5 Fourth of July smokes – our very own King of the Leaf Independence Day made the list! Thank you, DJ from Pick Jimmy!

Upholding our motto—Boutique, Limited, Legacy—means tirelessly seeking out the best and/or rarest cigars from top brands. Despite the challenge, we remain committed to providing our esteemed members with these exceptional selections.

Our first highlight of this month's pack is the LOS STATOS Deluxe Limited Edition 2024, expertly blended by Matt Booth. Since joining the Forged Cigar Company, Booth has been working his magic on General's older brands, introducing new blends and fresh artwork. His efforts are revitalizing these classic favorites, bringing them back to life for a new generation of cigar enthusiasts. This single cigar has an MSRP of $16.99, and we are proud to once again bring exceptional value to your packs.

Partagas Valle Verde presents a smooth, complex blend from four countries, marking a new exploration of flavor. It’s the first Partagas to feature a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, traditionally known for its strength, now mellow and elegant with notes of earth, sweetness, and cocoa. Beneath the surface, a blend of Cameroon, Nicaraguan, and Mexican tobaccos adds a subtle spice, creating a smoke that caters to every palate.

The Breakfast Tacos Maduro from Rojas Cigars is a delectable Petit Salomon crafted in the boutique Tabacalera Flor de San Luis factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. This medium to full-bodied smoke features a rich Mexican San Andrés wrapper, complemented by a Nicaraguan binder and fillers. If you're wanting a quick yet flavor-packed smoke on a hot day, the Breakfast Tacos Maduro is the one to go with!

Next up is the ultra-boutique Connecticut blend from Fermin Perez. The FP cigar line is rapidly gaining acclaim in the industry, and this Connecticut Toro is the perfect introduction to the brand. Once you light it up, you'll quickly realize it's something special.

Last but not least, we are proud to include Geri by Family by Loyalty.

Los Statos Deluxe 2024 King of the Leaf Cigar Club

Los Statos Deluxe 2024 Limited Edition

The new limited edition cigar from Matt Booth, Justin Andrews, and William Ventura for the Los Statos Deluxe brand is a 5 1/2 x 50 figurado features a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder, and a filler blend comprising Connecticut and Pennsylvania broadleaf and Nicaraguan corojo 98. The cigar offers rich floral notes balanced by white pepper and cocoa, delivering a solid retrohale and clean finish.

“This blend is sophisticated in nature,” said Booth, creative director for Scandinavian Tobacco Group, in a press release. “It is medium to medium-plus in body, yet full in flavor transition throughout the entire smoke. With so much complexity, there’s only one downside to the cigar and it’s that it literally goes by too fast, leaving you to wish the experience lasted longer.”

Produced at El Maestro in the Dominican Republic, the cigars are limited to 3,000 boxes of 10 cigars each. Priced at $16.99 per cigar, this blend will be retired following this release.

The Los Statos Deluxe brand is distributed by STG’s Forged Cigar Co.
