Chillin’ Moose and its beefy sidekick companion Bull Moose will be gaining a new Connecticut iteration called Shady Moose. This new line of cigars will feature an Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper, which will be a first for the Chillin’ Moose franchise.
Shady Moose is described as being a mellow-to-medium-bodied blend with slightly spicy white pepper notes balanced by hints of earth, wood and cream. Its blend is comprised of tobaccos from six countries and includes an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, a Mexican binder and a selection of long filler tobacco from the U.S., Colombia, Nicaragua, and the Dominican Republic.
Available beginning in March, Shady Moose will be a full-time line available in 20-count boxes and presented in three sizes: Robusto (5 1/2 x 50), Toro (6 x 52), and Gigante (6 x 60). These cigars are handcrafted in Honduras at the HATSA factory.
John Hakim, brand manager for Chillin’ Moose, issued the following statement about this new release:
“With Shady Moose, we built a great, anytime, anywhere blend that takes the smooth-smoking properties of a Connecticut Shade cigar and amps it up with the right amount of complexity and spice. And we didn’t stop there. We added in the cool Moose imagery and locked in an unbelievable price point. Now we’re waiting for Shady Moose to take a run at the internet, just like Bull Moose did last year. We’re ready for it. The question is…are you?”
Chillin’ Moose will have a suggested retail price ranging from $4.74 to $5.49 per cigar.
