Ace Prime is expanding the company’s House of Values with the release of The Sergeant, a single vitola cigar dedicated to the heroes that fight in anonymity, and the ones that self sacrifice out of deep-rooted honor, regardless of recognition.
“I was inspired by the life of my dear friend and U.S. Marine Corp Sgt. Brian Acevedo, one of the most altruist and self-given persons I know,” shares Luciano Meirelles, master blender, president and co-owner of Ace Prime. “Brian is the living example of what is to put the lives of others before your own, he has encountered peril many times and stood his ground. This cigar honors every man and woman who bravely committed to unconditional altruism.”
The Sergeant is a medium to full-bodied blend with deep flavor notes. Due to its balanced acidity, all of the complexity is slowly revealed by its potent long-aged ligeros grown in Esteli and Visos from Jalapa and Pueblo Nuevo. The Sergeant features a double Connecticut binder and a natural rosado Corojo 99 wrapper from Ecuador. The Sergeant will be presented as a 5 x 58 cigar sold for $10.50.
Eradio Pichardo, master blender and co-owner of Ace Prime, commented: “Luciano and I blended this cigar mindful that this product represents the most noble values of humanity and that’s why the hands and hearts involved into the craft of this cigar, everyone, understood the honor of being part of this project.”
Ace Prime also announced the upcoming release of Fiat Lux, a cigar in the company’s Luciano line. Fiat Lux’s blend features an Ecuadorian Sumatra High Prime, Nicaraguan binder, and Nicaraguan fillers.
“In my 30 plus years blending and smoking cigars I’ve never experienced a cigar that actually cleans your palate while delivering so much flavor. Every draw is a journey. I’ve been smoking Fiat Lux lately to increase my awareness and appreciation for other blends. It truly elevates your knowledge and certainly translates the essence of my business partner Luciano. After the Traveler and Dreamer I wasn’t sure what he would blend, but Fiat Lux exceeded all expectations and set a new standard,” Pichardo explains.
Fiat Lux will be available in four sizes: Acumen (6 x 56), Geniuses (5 1/2 x 52), Intuions (5 x 50), and Insights (5 5/8 x 46). Fiat Lux will cost between $8.75 and $10.75 per cigar.
