They sound like monsters, and even though they’re not vicious, they pack a pretty good bite. The Ogre, Wasabi, Dirty Hooligan, and Swamp Thang are popular cigars that not only share spooky monikers, they also share the same green skin – that is, a candela capa – the lime-green wrapper that was popular with American cigar smokers from the late 1950s to the early 1970s.
The blend uses a candela wrapper in combination with Kentucky Fire Cured tobaccos. The new sizes include the 6 x 52 Kentucky Fire Cured Swamp Thang Toro, Swamp Thang Robusto, and a 6 x 46 Kentucky Fire Cured Swamp Rat.
Released annually on St. Patrick’s Day since it was first introduced in 2013, the cigars will feature a barber pole wrapper this year. Suggested retail is $8.50 per cigar. The cigars will ship to retailers on February 10.
