Casdagli’s Daughters of the Wind line will be getting a new vitola in the form of a lancero, though it won’t be the same blend as the existing vitolas in the line.

The 7 1/2 x 39 cigar uses a Costa Rican wrapper instead of the Ecuadorian habano normally used and the new Daughters of the Wind filler blend.

“While fuma tasting different tobaccos in the boutique factory in Costa Rica for the  DoTW blend after IPCPR last July, I encountered two new tobaccos I was unfamiliar with: Peruvian Pinar and Dominican ‘caramelo,'” said Jeremy Casdagli, the company’s founder, in a statement.

In February, the company finalized the blend and has been aging the first batch of cigars ever since. Pricing has not been finalized and so it’s unclear whether the company will sell the Daughters of the Wind Lancero at this month’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.

The formal release is scheduled for September at the 2019 InterTabac trade show in Dortmund, Germany.
