FDG Cigars Booth IPCPR 2016

Last year, FDG Cigars celebrated its 20th anniversary with a pair of cigars, one wrapped in a Connecticut natural leaf and the other in a Connecticut broadleaf. For its 21st year, the company is giving a new spin to one of its most well known lines, 90 Miles, and releasing it in three versions, including a barber pole for the first time in its history. It’s a limited production for now, but Yadi Gonzalez-Vargas says she is hopeful it will generate enough interest to make it a regular production offering.

FDG Cigars 90 Millas Unidos IPCPR 2016

90 Millas Unidos

By far the most eye-catching of the three 90 Millas offerings, the Unidos is inspired by the changes taking place both in Cuba as well as in the relationship between Cuba and the United States. It features both the Connecticut and Nicaraguan habano wrappers intertwined in a barber pole design with a medium bodied profile that offers complexity from the dual wrapper and dual binder. If you’ve ever wanted to smoke a cigar with a true story and meaning behind it, this is one to consider.

  • Filler: Nicaragua

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.
