White Owls are American-made, machine produced cigars.[1] White Owl cigars are inexpensive, costing .99 cents for a pack of two cigarillos. The logo consists of a Snowy owl perched on a cigar.

History[edit]

White Owl is a cigar first produced in 1887. White Owl cigars are machine made in Dothan, Alabama, U.S.A.[dubious ] with a sheet-type wrapper and binder that encases a mixed filler tobacco blend from five nations.

As of 2011, White Owl cigars imported into Australia are produced in the Dominican Republic, under the direction of an Owensboro, Kentucky, U.S.A. company.[2]

In popular culture[edit]

  • "White Owl" is a Russian folk-core group, created in Moscow, who play music of different nations adapted in various styles. Since the tastes of the musicians don't belong to the same genre their arrangements are mixtures of such traditions as alternative, indie, solid rock, folk tradition and even renaissance. This band is not to be confused with the Canadian group called White Owl, whose shoegazing, drone heavy psych-rock is believed to be "enhanced" by moderate intake of the above mentioned "blunts".
  • In the song "Git Up Git Out" by Outkast, the lyrics include, "Our white owls are burnin' kind of slow."
  • The Vicious Fishes, a band from Feasterville, PA., named one of their jams "Peach White Owl"[3]
  • "40 and a Blunt" by Das Efx, lyrics includes "We're only smoking Phillies, White Owls and Optimos". This song is a 90s hip hop track which refers to drinking 40oz malt liquor and smoking blunts.
  • In the song "M.E.T.H.O.D MAN" by Method Man the lyrics include "I got fat bags of skunk, I got white owl blunts, and I'm about to go get lifted"
