It has been more than seven years since a new line from Cabal Cigars was mentioned on this site, but now the company is shipping a new release that it is calling Initiative.
Chris Arolfo, owner of Cabal Cigars, has not disclosed much about the cigar, though photos of the bundles reveal that the blend features a corojo wrapper, Nicaraguan binder, and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. It is a 4 1/2 x 50 petit robusto, and it is made at TABACALERA LA iSLA, the Dominican factory owned by Hostos Fernández Quesada.
According to a comment posted by the Cabal Cigars Instagram account, pricing is set at $100 per pack of 10 cigars. It is a regular production line, per Arolfo.
Update (Dec. 16, 2022) — Chris Arolfo noted that the cigars have a closed foot, and that a secondary band and a small change to the classic band will be added to the next batch of Initiative. He also noted that the next batch will be packed in foil, and that it will be an ongoing production.
