Caldwell Cigar Co. not only debuted a completely new brand at this year’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, it also unveiled three reblended lines.
Blind Man’s Bluff
The new brand is Blind Man’s Bluff, which will debut in three different vitolas, all of which will be sold in boxes of 20: Robusto (5 x 50, $7.50), Toro (6 x 52, $8.50) and Magnum (6 x 60, $9.50.) The blend incorporates a Ecuadorian habano wrapper covering a Honduran criollo binder and filler tobaccos from Honduras and the Dominican Republic and are being rolled at Agroindustrias Laepe S.A. in Danli, Honduras.
In addition to the new line, Calwell has reblended the value brands of Selvillana, Gibraltar and Muricas lines and renamed them Sevillana Reserva, Gibraltar Extra and Muricas Especial respectively. These three cigars are known as the Iberian Express and will be sent to retailers after the show.
The Sevillana Reserva is made up of an Ecuadoran Connecticut wrapper covering a binder from the Dominican Republic and fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.
The Gibraltar Extra blend is composed of an Ecuadoran wrapper covering a binder from the Dominican Republic as well as fillers from Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic and the United States.
