Two New Lost&Found Releases Arrive in Sweden and U.S.

If you’re looking for the two newest releases in the Lost&Found portfolio, your best bet is to look in Sweden.

The project, which is headed by Robert Caldwell and Tony Bellatto, is releasing the Lost&Found Black and Lost&Found Swedish Delight as exclusives to the Scandinavian country by way of a partnership with Karl Martin Nelson, owner of Kind Cigars.

However, that doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to find them stateside, as a small amount have been allocated for some U.S. retailers.

The Lost&Found Black is a 5 3/4 x 46 corona with a dark Connecticut Arapiraca wrapper, habano binder of undisclosed origin, with Dominican, Honduran, and Nicaraguan filler. There are about 2,700 cigars available, of which about 750 were sent to the U.S. They come in 10-count boxes and are priced at $10 per cigar.

Swedish Delight is a 6 x 46 corona that uses a light Ecuadorian habano wrapper, with the binder and filler undisclosed. Approximately 4,200 cigars were produced but with just 500 or so destined for the U.S. They are also priced at $10 per stick and come in 10-count boxes.

Both cigars are made in the Dominican Republic according to Caldwell, though as is the norm with the Lost&Found series, the factory that made them is not being disclosed.

The Lost&Found series is a collaborative project launched in 2014 by Tony Bellatto, Robert Caldwell, and Jaclyn Sears where “lost” cigars, oftentimes made for other people and projects, get released under the Lost&Found banner. None of the three take credit for blending the cigars, only for discovering them and bringing them to consumers.

Patrick Lagreid: I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the Spring Training public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies, PA announcer for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, and PA announcer for the Phoenix Mercury of the WNBA. I'm also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice talent and writer, among other things. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
