Kafie 1901 Cigars is marking the end of its fifth year of operations with a new factory sampler featuring a 6 x 52 toro vitola in each of the seven blends produced at Tabacalera G. Kafie y Cia. in Danlí, Honduras.
The toro vitola is new for each of the lines and was made just for the sampler. As far as the cigars inside, there is one cigar each of the Don Fernando Maduro Collection, Kafie 1901 Connecticut, Kafie 1901 Sumatra and Kafie 1901 San Andres, as well as the Tabacos San Jeronimo line in the Connecticut, Habano Natural and Habano Maduro blends.
Kafie Trading Co. began distributing the Tabacos San Jeronimo line in May 2016, after Dr. Gaby Kafie came across the brand during travels to the country and learned that the brand has been distributed throughout the Central American premium cigar market for decades. The brand is owned by Oscar Orlando Ferrera, who has overseen the company’s operations for over 20 years, with its roots dating back to the middle of the 20th century.
The sampler has an MSRP of $59.99 and is slated to go on sale as of Jan. 10, 2019. The company is producing a total of 2,000 samplers, which production limited to 500 samplers per quarter throughout 2019.
