Oscar​ ​Valladares​ ​Tobacco​ ​and​ ​The​ ​Cigar​ ​Shop​ ​Team​ ​Up​ ​for​ ​the ​​2012​ ​by​ ​Oscar​ ​Barber​ ​Pole



Carolina-based​ ​retailer​ ​The​ ​Cigar​ ​Shop​ ​is​ ​proud​ ​to​ ​announce​ ​it​ ​is​ ​teaming​ ​up​ ​with Oscar​ ​Valladares​ ​Tobacco​ ​&​ ​Co​ ​to​ ​produce​ ​its​ ​second​ ​exclusive​ ​offering.​ ​The​ ​offering will​ ​be​ ​an​ ​extension​ ​to​ ​the​ ​2012​ ​by​ ​Oscar​ ​line​ ​and​ ​features​ ​the​ ​rare​ ​combination​ ​of​ ​a candela​ ​wrapper​ ​being​ ​used​ ​in​ ​a​ ​barber-pole​ ​offering​ ​in​ ​a​ ​box-pressed​ ​format.​ ​​ ​The Cigar​ ​Shop​ ​has​ ​commissioned​ ​200​ ​boxes​ ​of​ ​the​ ​new​ ​2012​ ​by​ ​Oscar​ ​Barber​ ​Pole​ ​to​ ​be exclusively​ ​sold​ ​at​ ​its​ ​Monroe,​ ​North​ ​Carolina;​ ​Myrtle​ ​Beach,​ ​South​ ​Carolina,​ ​and​ ​online web​ ​store​​ ​​


Earlier​ ​this​ ​year,​ ​Oscar​ ​released​ ​his​ ​2012​ ​by​ ​Oscar​ ​line​ ​to​ ​commemorate​ ​five​ ​years​ ​in the​ ​cigar​ ​business.​ ​The​ ​all-box-pressed​ ​line​ ​consists​ ​of​ ​three​ ​blends;​ ​each​ ​highlighting​ ​a different​ ​wrapper:​ ​Connecticut​ ​Shade,​ ​Corojo,​ ​and​ ​Maduro.​ ​Now​ ​with​ ​the​ ​2012​ ​by​ ​Oscar Barber​ ​Pole,​ ​Oscar​ ​puts​ ​together​ ​a​ ​unique​ ​combination​ ​of​ ​wrappers​ ​-​ ​a​ ​San​ ​Andres Maduro​ ​and​ ​Candela​ ​wrapper.​ ​The​ ​two​ ​wrapper​ ​leaves​ ​are​ ​intertwined​ ​in​ ​a​ ​barber​ ​pole format​ ​over​ ​a​ ​Nicaraguan​ ​binder​ ​and​ ​a​ ​combination​ ​of​ ​Honduran​ ​and​ ​Nicaraguan​ ​filler.


The​ ​barber​ ​pole​ ​is​ ​also​ ​unique​ ​in​ ​that​ ​while​ ​most​ ​barber​ ​poles​ ​are​ ​twisted​ ​in​ ​a symmetrical​ ​manner​ ​providing​ ​equal​ ​spacing​ ​around​ ​the​ ​cigar,​ ​the​ ​2012​ ​by​ ​Oscar Barber​ ​Pole​ ​twists​ ​the​ ​wrappers​ ​in​ ​an​ ​asymmetrical​ ​manner​ ​providing​ ​a​ ​variance​ ​in spacing​ ​around​ ​the​ ​cigar.​ ​Consistent​ ​with​ ​the​ ​rest​ ​of​ ​the​ ​2012​ ​by​ ​Oscar​ ​line,​ ​the​ ​cigars are​ ​finished​ ​in​ ​box-pressed​ ​6​ ​x​ ​52​ ​Toro​ ​format.



“Keeping​ ​consistent​ ​with​ ​our​ ​philosophy​ ​for​ ​exclusive​ ​cigars,​ ​we​ ​want​ ​to​ ​offer​ ​a​ ​unique experience​ ​for​ ​our​ ​customers.​ ​When​ ​we​ ​approached​ ​Oscar​ ​about​ ​doing​ ​a​ ​project,​ ​we discussed​ ​how​ ​important​ ​this​ ​was.​ ​Oscar​ ​not​ ​only​ ​delivered​ ​on​ ​bringing​ ​something unique,​ ​but​ ​he​ ​took​ ​it​ ​to​ ​a​ ​whole​ ​new​ ​level.​ ​This​ ​is​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​most​ ​unique​ ​cigars​ ​to​ ​hit the​ ​market​ ​in​ ​some​ ​time,”​ ​said​ ​Todd​ ​Johnson,​ ​co-owner​ ​of​ ​The​ ​Cigar​ ​Shop.


“We​ ​were​ ​thrilled​ ​to​ ​be​ ​given​ ​the​ ​opportunity​ ​to​ ​work​ ​with​ ​Oscar​ ​on​ ​this​ ​2012​ ​line extension.​ ​Oscar​ ​and​ ​his​ ​team​ ​really​ ​focused​ ​on​ ​what​ ​we​ ​were​ ​looking​ ​for​ ​to​ ​offer​ ​to​ ​our customers.

The​ ​end​ ​result​ ​is​ ​absolutely​ ​stunning.​ ​We​ ​are​ ​confident​ ​you​ ​will​ ​enjoy​ ​it​ ​as much​ ​as​ ​we​ ​have!”​ ​​ ​added​ ​Mark​ ​Boley,​ ​co-owner​ ​of​ ​The​ ​Cigar​ ​Shop.


The​ ​2012​ ​by​ ​Oscar​ ​Barber​ ​Pole​ ​will​ ​be​ ​available​ ​in​ ​10-count​ ​boxes.​ ​Each​ ​cigar​ ​is​ ​priced at​ ​$8.97.​ ​An​ ​allocation​ ​of​ ​200​ ​boxes​ ​has​ ​been​ ​exclusively​ ​made​ ​available​ ​to​ ​The​ ​Cigar Shop.​ ​The​ ​cigars​ ​will​ ​go​ ​on​ ​sale​ ​at​ ​both​ ​the​ ​Myrtle​ ​Beach,​ ​SC​ ​and​ ​Monroe,​ ​NC locations​ ​of​ ​The​ ​Cigar​ ​Shop​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as​​ ​​ordered​ ​​online​​ ​in​ ​boxes​ ​or​ ​​individually​.
