The Liga de la Casa bundles from Kafie 1901 Cigars is getting a bit of a makeover as part of the company moving its production to the La Aurora Cigar Factory, most notably that the cigars now use long filler tobacco after previously using what was described as medium filler tobacco.

“We now have more refined tobaccos available to us, which allow us the luxury to improve our blends and offer a better, more consistent cigar to connoisseurs,” said Dr. Gaby Kafie, president of Kafie 1901 Cigars, via a press release.

The line features three blends, one using an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, one which uses a Honduran habano natural wrapper, and the other that uses a Honduran habano maduro blend. All three blends use an Indonesian binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic.

All three Liga de la Casa blends are offered in the same four vitolas:

  • Liga de la Casa Robusto (5 x 50) — $4 (Bundle of 20, $80)
  • Liga de la Casa Toro (6 x 50) — $4.50 (Bundle of 20, $90)
  • Liga de la Casa Churchill (7 x 50) — $4.75 (Bundle of 20, $95)
  • Liga de la Casa Gran Toro (6 x 58) — $5 (Bundle of 20, $100)

“I have always had a philosophy of creating quality smoking experiences combined with a tremendous value,” Kafie said. “My focus with Liga de la Casa this past year has been to create cigars that retail between $4.00 – $5.00 each. They can be enjoyed by most cigar connoisseurs and become a go-to cigar for many.”

Kafie 1901 Cigars expects the first shipment of the new Liga de la Casa bundles to arrive by the end of September. It has also announced that it will be launching an updated version of its Naked Cigars by Kafie 1901, another bundle offering.

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.
