Later this month, will be receiving yet another exclusive from Casdagli, the first box-pressed cigar from the brand formerly known as Bespoke.

The Daughters of the Wind Pony Express is a 6 x 48 box-pressed parejo that is a modified version of the Daughters of the Wind blend. It uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper over dual binders: Costa Rican Puriscal and tobacco from Estelí, Nicaragua. The filler blend is also changed, namely a different proportion of Dominican oscuro ligero and Peruvian tobaccos.

“We were approached last year by the Small Batch Cigar team to make something special based around the Daughters of the Wind blend,” said Jeremy Casdagli in a press release. “The final blend was finally agreed upon during this years IPCPR in Las Vegas. The main ingredient that had to be concluded upon was the amount of the Dominican Oscuro Ligero filler that would be used to further enrich the existing Daughters of the Wind blend for Small Batch’s clientele.”

It is priced at $16.99 per cigar and limited to 333 boxes of 15 cigars.

The Pony Express is a reference to the fast shipping times from, the online storefront of Maxamar Ultimate Cigars. It will actually launch at Maxamar on Nov. 13 during an event with Casdagli and Vlada Stojanov.
