Let me ask you this â€“ what is the main reason that you like smoking cigars? I cannot answer for you but if you were to ask me this question, I would probably say the flavor and the overall experience. I doubt that anyone would say that they smoke cigars because they want the nicotine.
Anyway, this question came to mind as I was reading a press release from Ruyan America, Inc. Here is an excerpt of the press release:
Ruyan America, Inc. announced today that it will introduce the new Ruyan Vegas(R) Freestyle E-cigar at the 76th annual International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association tradeshow to be held in Las Vegas July 14 to July 17.
Like the Company’s Ruyan Vegas(R) Classic, the Ruyan Vegas(R) Freestyle looks and feels like a premium cigar, nearly six inches in length, but the Freestyle, unlike the Classic, contains no nicotine.
William P. Bartkowski, President of Ruyan America, stated, “The Ruyan Vegas(R) Freestyle provides the casual cigar user a product free of smoke, free of nicotine, but capable of producing a thick, flavorful and enjoyable vapor, while making a statement about the user’s leisure and life style. We envision a broad and exciting market for this unique offering.”
I doubt that cigar aficionados would go for these E-cigars just yet but I do think that they can have a potentially huge market. What do you think?
