La Flor Dominicana’s TCFKA “M” Collector’s 2014 is slated to be on retail shelves in early December, and will feature a new blend as well as a new name.

The 7 x 55 perfecto uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper with Connecticut Broadleaf accents to create the cigar’s distinctive design. Underneath that sits a Dominican binder and filler blend from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. The cigar comes in five-count boxes with a price of $96.40, which translates into a single stick MSRP of $19.30., a slight increase over last year’s edition, which was the first in the Collector’s offshoot.

The cigar also comes with a new acronym for a name that stands for The Cigar Formerly Known as Mysterio. In early November, La Flor Dominicana announced the name change after a lawsuit filed by Connecticut Valley Tobacconist challenged who had rightful ownership of the Mysterio and Mysterioso names. CVT is the parent company of Old Battleground Cigars and has been producing a cigar with the Mysterioso name since January 2003, with the name being registered for a trademark in August 2006 and granted in July 2007. It was around that time that La Flor Dominicana began using the Mysterio name. The Mysterioso line was added to the LFD catalog in 2013.

LFD won’t be changing the blend for this year’s regular release of the TCFKA “M,” with it once again being released in both natural and maduro versions, and with a single stick MSRP of $16.70 per cigar.

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, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
