Earlier this month, we launched our latest vitola and offering from the EGM Cigars line, the EGM Tiburones, exclusive to Saudi Arabia. Given our wonderful relationship and clientele, we chose one of our favourite places in Riyadh, Il Baretto, to host the intimate evening where guests were able to try our cigar for the first time.
The EGM Tiburones are a tribute to the indigenous Taíno community. Early inhabitants of Cuba, the Taíno were the first to recognise the magic of smoked tobacco, often using it as part of their sacred rituals. 'Tiburon' is the Taíno word for shark. These beautiful Dominican Puros are crafted entirely by hand, using long filler leaves, in accordance with a centuries-old Cuban tradition.
The EGM Tiburones are exclusively available to the KSA market now, but will become available internationally from June.
