The team of Tony Bellatto, Robert Caldwell and Jaclyn Sears have announced the newest additions to their Bellatto/Caldwell/Sears line, the collection formerly known as Impromptu.

In a press release sent out Monday, the trio revealed that one cigar from the initial batch will be returning in 2015, the Supreme Cream, also known as the Pepper Cream Soda and Cream Machine. It will be joined by the Buck 15 and Silent Scream, all of which are slated to start hitting retail shelves in the coming weeks.

Like the first edition, this version of the Supreme Cream comes from 2006 but comes in a 6 x 50 toro vitola and is limited to just 1,800 cigars. The cigar uses a Ecuadorian Brazilian-seed Arapiraca wrapper, Dominican Piloto binder and filler of Dominican Piloto, Dominican Cuban Seed HVA and Dominican Habano. The factory responsible for the cigars remains undisclosed.

Buck 15 is a Dominican puro and come in a 5 x 50 vitola. The cigars date back to 2010, with only 400 being made available to retailers. Sears describes the profiles as creamy with notes of caramel on the finish.

The other new release is Silent Shout, a 2008 vintage in a 4 x 42 vitola limited to just 3,000 cigars. The cigars come from the Dominican Republic with a profile described by Bellatto as creamy, smooth and earthy with a rich crisp finish, with a blend of Habano, Piloto Cubano and Connecticut tobaccos, though specifics are not being disclosed at this time.

Pricing for all three releases is still being finalized, while other details are being withheld.

The collection of cigars has dropped the Impromptu name because “Impromptu proved itself to be a much more complicated name than the latter,” the group said via a press release. While the name has changed, the project’s purpose remains the same, a point that they describe as “simply complicated; it is basically to rummage around the aging rooms of legendary manufacturers and find those amazing blends that have been hibernating for just too long and to then re-release them to the market.” The original names of the cigars are never released, with just hints released as to tasting notes, blends and countries of origin.

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 public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
