The Aristoff Black line of cigars was designed with special packaging for individual cigar sales. Each Aristoff cigar is housed in an innovative "Cedarclear" clear square tube with a strip of cedar lining. Each cigar tube is finished with a stamp that will be individually numbered with the batch production of that cigar. An additional stamp profiles the blend and taste characteristics for the customer at the point of sale.
Aristoff is offering a limited box pressed version of the Aristoff Black in boxes of 24. The box pressed cigar will be available in two sizes: Robusto and Churchill and two wrappers: Cameroon and Brazilian Maduro.
Aristoff is offering a Monogram Cigar program, which is a special service that allows customers to imprint their initials in gold on a custom band to be placed on an Aristoff Black Standard Series cigar. They can monogram a cigar for themselves, give them to someone as a gift, or to commemorate an important occasion.
