In 2002, Jonathan Drew invited Two Guys Smoke Shop to be part of a limited group of retailers with their own unique sizes and blends of ACID cigars, known as Subcultures. The Garofalo brothers were excited and, through some research, found that the first Cuban cigar to be sold in Boston, where Two Guys Smoke Shop began their business back in 1985, was a brand called Amigos.
“Dos Hombres is technically the direct translation of Two Guys,” David Garofalo, president of Two Guys Smoke Shop says. “Since cigar enthusiasts are such friendly people, our logic was when you are walking down the street and you got two cigars, if you share one with someone you instantly have a friend; Dos Amigos. We were honored to be one of the first retailers in the country to join the Subculture program, and are proud to continue with our Diplomat Membership.”
ACID Amigos features a Connecticut Shade wrapper, complemented by a blend of premium Nicaraguan fillers with a smooth, sweet, and aromatic infusion. ACID Amigos are 5 x 38 cigars finished with a Pigtail head, and wrapped by two under the same band. Amigos are presented in 40-count boxes; 20 Amigos of two cigars. Introductory price per box is $159.99 and $9.99 for two sticks.
“David and the crew at Two Guys are not just amigos of the Subculture Movement, they are friends,” Jonathan Drew, president and founder of Drew Estate, says. “This is the store that I personally conducted my third cigar event ever, back in 1996. Two Guys Smoke Shop has a decorated history and is an intrinsic part of New England cigar culture. ACID Amigos is a bad ass little subculture.”
Look for the Acid Amigos to hit Two Guys Smoke Shop’s shelves, and their online shop today, June 11th. There will be a limit of two boxes per person and will be sold exclusively at Two Guys Smoke Shop three locations in Salem, Seabrook, and Nashua, New Hampshire, and online at 2GuysCigars.com.
