KEYSVILLE, Va., April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- S&M Brands, Inc., part of the American tobacco farming industry for over 100 years, and one of Virginia's largest privately held growers, manufacturers and distributors of premium quality tobacco products, announces expanding product lines within its LEX12® brand of premium tobacco products. It has introduced LEX12® Blend #7 Cigars, a proprietary blend composed of the finest dark air-cured tobaccos perfectly balanced with U.S. grown, toasted, light air-cured and flu-cured tobacco manufactured through its partner factory in the Dominican Republic. The contrasting tobacco varieties combine for a sweet, smooth taste and these cigarillos are available in LEX12® Classic, Sparkling Moon, Blue Magic and Napa Night. LEX12® Blend #7 Cigars are sold in sleek and stylish resealable "LEX LOCK" foil pouches, always fresh for today's on-the-go adult smokers. Each resealable foil pouch contains three cigars and 15 pouches per carton.
S&M Brands, Inc. launched its first entry into the little cigar market in 2012 at several cigar shows in Las Vegas with its signature brand, LEX12® Classic, a slender 100mm, sweet tipped, filtered little cigar. The demand from distributors and retailers resulted in the addition of LEX12® Menthol Chrome and LEX12® Sweet Chaos. LEX12® is a handcrafted blend of fine American-grown tobaccos that combine for a deliciously sweet taste that is pleasantly aromatic. Its graphite-colored wrap is richly textured with a stylish platinum band and sports a distinctive jet black filter. Twelve little cigars are packaged in a premium embossed tin that is the size and shape of popular smart phones which distinguishes LEX12® in the marketplace. In 2013, S&M Brands released convenient Grab 'N Go 4-Packs, in all four style profiles, designed for convenience store retail consumers.
"Consumers are driving the smoking marketplace and S&M Brands is innovating and reinventing its product offerings to meet distributor, retailer and ultimately, consumer demand. We are providing a premium product, pleasantly aromatic, delicious beyond compare through modern and innovative smoking products packaged in distinctive premium embossed tins that are popularly priced," states Steven Bailey, President of S&M Brands, Inc.
