Casdagli, the company formerly known as Bespoke Cigars, has begun shipping a new size for its Daughters of the Wind line.
The Daughters of the Wind Robusto is a 5 x 50 robusto using tobaccos aged for 2-5 years, though it’s a different blend than the other four sizes. The new size uses an Ecuadorian HVA wrapper, an Ecuadorian criollo 98 binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic, Ecuador and Nicaragua. The other four sizes—three of which are salomones and belicosos—use an Ecuadorian HVA wrapper, but a Costa Rican binder fillers from the Dominican Republic and Peru.
It’s priced at $9.25 and is being sold in boxes of 15, making it the smallest and least expensive size for the line.
“We have been collaborating on special projects with Don Olman for over 6 years now and are confident the Robusto is in safe hands,” said Jeremy Casdagli, the company’s founder, in a press release. “The boxes will be the first to exhibit the new ‘Casdagli’ brand name but will continue to show the Colossus of Rhodes within the gold diamond – as diamonds truly are forever.”
In addition to the new bands, the company is changing the containers the cigars come in. Currently, the other four vitolas are being sold in tubes, that will shift to boxes of 12 cigars in Q1 of 2019.
Correction (March 17, 2019) — The original version of this article reported that the other sizes of the line are all salomones and belicosos; in fact three of them are, the other is a 7 x 56 parejo. We regret the error.
