Ventura Cigar Company announced the arrival of the limited-edition Case Study CS/13, a cigar first introduced at IPCPR 2018. The full-bodied cigar features a special blend from Drew Estate, made at their factory in Nicaragua. Only 200 boxes containing 20 cigars each were made, making it a true collector’s cigar.
“Some things are truly worth waiting for,” says Michael Giannini, General Manager of Ventura Cigar Company. “And Case Study CS/13 is one of those things. The blend is perfect, and the smoking experience is solid. Case Study is a concept born of master blenders and their exceptional craft. For those who love the leaf, I encourage you to seek out this stick before it sells out.”
The Case Study cigar project pays homage to the modernist design triumphs of mid-century architects and designers as commissioned by Arts & Architecture magazine from 1945 to 1966. The 26 homes built for this initiative were created by masters like Charles and Ray Eames, Pierre Koenig, and Eero Saarinen, and have become icons of architecture, renowned for their craftsmanship and alluring aesthetic. In similar fashion, the blends of each of the 26 Case Study cigars are created by master blenders, whose names can’t be divulged, but whose iconic signatures are all over their craft.
The Case Study project also features a handful of limited-edition blends created with rare and vintage tobaccos that are no longer available.
