All four of the new sizes will be offered in boxes of 10 cigars.

The Casa Turrent 1880 line is made up of four blends:

  • Claro, which uses a Mexican habano criollo San Andrés claro wrapper, Mexican Negro San Andrés binder, with Mexican and Dominican tobacco in the filler.
  • Colorado, which uses a Mexican negro San Andrés colorado wrapper, Mexican habano criollo San Andrés binder, and Mexican fillers.
  • Oscuro, which uses Mexican habano criollo San Andrés tobacco for the wrapper and filler, with Mexican negro San Andrés used for the binder.
  • Maduro, which has a Mexican negro San Andrés maduro wrapper, Mexican habano criollo San Andrés binder, and fillers from Mexico and Nicaragua.

All of the Mexican tobacco used in the 1880 lines is grown by the Turrent family.

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.
