Last month we wrote about the Iron Shirt small batch. That’s a Nicaraguan cigar, limited edition, made for Schuster Zigarren from Germany, and that’s all we knew. Now we know a little more.

The cigars, of which only 800 boxes are made due to the limited availability of the rare tobacco, are a tribute to heroes. Heroes are brave, wise, fearless and always act with good intention. They fight for freedom and stand by their rights and beliefs unconditionally. With eloquence, courage and understanding, they overcome their own and foreign boundaries and reinvent their world again and again. They do not always wear a red cape, a green skin color or have very great super powers. No, they often just carry a heavy bag for somebody else or bring a lost teddy back home. Heroes are everywhere and sometimes it’s enough to take a single step to be a role model to others. Become a role model too, overcome your limits and stand up for what happens. Because enjoyment knows no boundaries. And for all those heroes, there is iron shirt.

Iron Shirt is made in a small, undisclosed, factory in Nicaragua. The filler comes from Nicaragua and Brazil, and especially the Brazilian filler is of a rare kind. The wrapper is a high quality Mata Fine from Brazil as well. The cigars, which only come in one size, come in a beautiful metal box. Once sold out, they are sold out. The cigars will be available in New Zealand, Germany, Denmark, Austria and Switzerland for sure, if they will be released in other markets we will report back.
