Tim Wong, owner of Pier 28 Premium Cigars, continued the company’s calculated approach of introducing a singular new cigar blend on an annual basis—introducing the Pier 28 Connecticut at IPCPR 2019. The cigars feature the color scheme of the San Jose Sharks, as all Pier 28 brands showcase the colors of Wong’s California-based professional sports teams. Pier 28 Connecticut was said to be mild to medium in body and full in flavor, being rolled at Erik Espinosa’s La Zona factory in Estelí. Consumers can expect the cigars to arrive in the August to September timeframe, with prices in the $7.99 to $8.99 range.
