At the 2023 Total Product Expo (TPE) in February, Casa 1910 is scheduled to debut its newest cigar line, the Soldadera Edition.

The line is made up of three cigars, all named in homage of women who contributed to the Mexican Revolution.

La Coronela is a beefy 5 1/2 x 58 vitola that honors Amelia Robles, who fought in disguise as a man in Emiliano Zapata’s army. It features an Ecuadorian habano wrapper, a Brazilian Arapiraca binder, and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Mexico. It has an MSRP of $20 per cigar

Next is Sampetrina, a 5 x 50 robusto named in honor of Petra Herrera, who also fought in the disguise of a man, though for the forces led by Pancho Villa. She went on to lead her own brigade of soldaderas, a group made up exclusively of women, after she felt she did not receive proper recognition for her contributions to the Revolution.

The only confirmed detail about the Sampetrina blend is that it uses a shade-grown wrapper. It is priced at $16 per cigar.

Rounding out the Soldadera Edition is the Teniente Angela, a 6 x 52 toro named for a soldier from Oaxaca who fought with both Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata. No blend details have been disclosed yet, but the company has confirmed that it is priced at $18 per cigar.

All three cigars are offered in 10-count boxes and 25-count bundles, and are being produced at Tabacalera La iSLA, the Dominican facility owned by Hostos Fernández Quesada. This release will mark the first release from Casa 1910 to come from the Dominican Republic, as it has previously worked with factories in Mexico and Nicaragua.

Casa 1910 began taking orders for the new Soldadera Edition during an event it hosted in Mexico City from Nov. 18-20. The company has not yet announced a shipping date and has said that a formal announcement about the cigars will be released next week.

TPE 2023 takes place Feb. 22-24 in Las Vegas.

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 MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
