General Tobacco Launches New Product Line Extension Vaquero Filtered Cigars
Vidal Suriel, Founder and President of North Carolina-based General Tobacco (GT), announced today the launch of the new Vaquero Filtered Cigars 100's Box. The Vaquero Filtered Cigars are the latest addition to GT's product line catalog and will be available in a variety of flavors, such as Natural, Lights, Vanilla, Menthol, Peach, Cherry and Wildberry.
"We are very pleased to present our new Vaquero Filtered Cigars," said J. Ronald Denman, Executive Vice President and General Counsel for General Tobacco. "For years, Vaquero has been a favorite among 'little' cigar smokers, and to reward our loyal customers and show our appreciation, we have launched this new filtered product in the 100's Box. Due to the increased weight and re-design of our packaging, the Vaquero Filtered Cigars comply with legal requirements for cigars, and therefore avoid the higher taxes associated with cigarettes."
Vaquero Filtered Cigars 100's Box joins the other successful brands of General Tobacco including GT One, Bronco, Silver, 32 Degrees and Champion. For more information regarding General Tobacco and their entire catalog of tobacco products.
