Scandinavian Tobacco Group has launched the Buffalo Trace Special F, another collaboration with Kentucky whiskey maker Buffalo Trace. Named after the difficult-to-craft figurado which is a more pronounced version of the traditional torpedo, the Special F features a Brazilian Arapiraca binder aged in Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels.
The Buffalo Trace Special F has an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper and is made at General Cigar Dominicana in Santiago, Dominican Republic.
“With Buffalo Trace Special F, we set out to explore the effect that extended barrel aging would have on the binder leaf and are extremely pleased with the results,” Kevin Irvine, product coordinator of STG’s Online and Retail division said in a press release.
Buffalo Trace Special F comes in a 6 x 60 figurado ($11) and is being sold through Cigars International online, in Cigars International retail stores and is being distributed nationally by Meier & Dutch Wholesale Cigar Distributors.
The original Buffalo Trace cigar was introduced last year in three sizes.
