"Felix Assouline EGO White The lone line that the company announced prior to the show, the EGO White builds on the company’s existing EGO and EGO Connecticut lines with a new blend that uses a wrapper grown on Assouline’s Omega Tobaccos farm in Nicaragua’s Jalapa region. The company announced four vitolas in early July—Divine, Magic, HEX and Taboo—with plans for a total of nine sizes, all of which were included on the order forms at the show. While it’s a regular production offering, the company is staggering production to an every other year basis, meaning that once the 2018 production is depleted, it won’t go back into production until 2020." www.Halfwheel.com (2018)
