Hiram & Solomon Cigars – our PCA kick-off

The first day of the trade show couldn’t start any better: Romy and Fouad Kashouty greet us at the Hiram & Solomon Cigars stand. “We are here at the PCA with two new blends,” Romy presents the two new products.

First there is the “Heart & Soul” cigar. This latest creation is a limited edition offering, meticulously crafted for M.W. Leonard Vander Horn, Grand Master of Masons for the state of New Jersey.
The cigar is available only online in boxes of ten cigars, USD 140,00 – it’s a 6×52 Toro with an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, an Ecuadorian binder and filler tobaccos from the Domenican Republic.

The second new release is called “Cornerstone” – a PCA 2024 Special Limited Release. The Cornerstone is priced at an MSRP of $16 per cigar, offered in boxes of 10. Nationwide shipping to retailers will commence following the PCA event.

“There will be further launches in the next five months – and we now also have our accessiore line,” says Romy. The company has announced a tour for Germany in June 2024, the exact dates and further information will follow.
