Falto Cigars Adding LJF Reserva del Fundador


A 23rd anniversary isn’t generally cause for a huge celebration, but for Tabacalera Falto, it is cause for a new cigar.

Luis J. Falto has announced the release of a new cigar, the Falto LJF Reserva del Fundador, a name that translates as founder’s reserve. It’s a 5 1/2 x 52 box pressed robusto that uses a Dominican-grown Habana 92 wrapper, Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.


The Falto LJF Reserva del Fundador is priced at $7 per cigar, or $140 for a box of 20 cigars. It is being produced at the La Aurora Cigar Factory in the Dominican Republic, and while it’s a regular production cigar, Falto is limiting each production run to just 100 boxes.

Falto told halfwheel that the cigar is already in the market at two retailers, and will get its widespread release at the IPCPR Convention and Trade Show in July.

About the author

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.
