Cigar news you can use: Press release from General Cigar and Shady Moose


March is going to charge in like a Moose. 

Chillin’ Moose and its beefy sidekick Bull Moose will soon welcome a Connecticut “cousin” called Shady Moose, a new line of cigars made with an Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper, a first for the Chillin’ Moose franchise. 

Shipping to retailers on March 1, Shady Moose will launch as a full-time line with three new sizes, including the first Toro for the growing Chillin’ Moose trio.

Handcrafted in Honduras at the HATSA factory, Shady Moose is a six-country blend wrapped in Ecuadorian Connecticut, with a Mexican binder and a selection of long filler tobacco from the US, Colombia, the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.

The mellow-to-medium-bodied blend is stout-hearted, with slightly spicy white pepper notes balanced by hints of earth,wood and cream.

“With Shady Moose, we built a great, anytime, anywhere blend that takes the smooth-smoking properties of a Connecticut Shade cigar and amps it up with the right amount of complexity and spice. And we didn’t stop there. We added in the cool Moose imagery and locked in an unbelievable price point. Now we’re waiting for Shady Moose to take a run at the internet, just like Bull Moose did last year. We’re ready for it. The question is…are you?” said John Hakim, brand manager of Chillin’ Moose.


Shady Moose cigars will be distributed by Forged Cigar Company. 

The cigars will be packed in boxes containing 20 cigars.

Shady Moose Robusto (5.5” x 50); SRP per cigar $4.79

Shady Moose Toro (6” x 52); SRP per cigar $4.99

Shady Moose Gigante (6” x 60); SRP per cigar $5.49
