Garrison Brothers Distillery is partnering with PAYNE-MASON Cigars to create a series of smokes that includes a bourbon infused cigar and three cigars that are blended to pair with some of Garrison’s spirits.
The Torpedo Garrison is infused with Garrison Brothers’ Small Batch Bourbon, wrapped in 6-year aged Dominican Corojo with Dominican, Honduran and Nicaraguan tobaccos as binder and filler. It completes its aging process in a used white oak Garrison Brothers barrel at the PAYNE-MASON headquarters in California.
The new line is rounded out with three 6 x 52 Toros, the Golden, the Barber and the Maduro, which are individually paired with specific Garrison Brothers bourbons.
The Golden has a 5-year aged Connecticut Shade Grown wrapper and is developed to pair with the Garrison Brothers’ HoneyDew bourbon. The Toro Barber features a combined 5-year aged Connecticut Shade Natural wrapper and 6-year aged Dominican Corojo wrapper and is meant to be paired with Garrison Brothers’ Single Barrel. The Toro Maduro has a dark 8-year aged Maduro wrapper to smoke with the Garrison Brothers twice barreled bourbon whiskey, Balmorhea.
Each cigar comes in a sealed glass tube. The Toros retail for $16.50 and The Torpedo Garrison for $19.95.
The cigars will be sold online and at the Garrison Brothers Distillery in Hye, Texas.
