The Micallef Migdalia S.E. has arrived in stores.
Micallef Cigars announced the cigar in March to coincide with International Women’s Day, which takes place on March 8. It is a 5 x 40 version of the Migdalia line, which uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over a Sumatran binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. The Migdalia S.E. is the fourth vitola in the Migdalia line.
MSRP is set at $12 per cigar and it is sold in boxes of 12 cigars.
The Migdalia line is named after Migdalia Sanchez, the matriarch of the Gomez-Sanchez family. She was born in Cuba and became a cigar rolled who traveled the world and received the Distinción Carlos Baliño, which recognizes 25 years of work in the Cuban tobacco industry. She left Cuba in 1998 and joined her family, who operate the factory that produces Micallef’s cigars.
“We benefit from Migdalia’s lifelong experience and incredible talent,” said Amanda Micallef, vp of marketing for Micallef, in a press release. “There’s no question she is a strong woman, but she’s the rule, not the exception. It doesn’t matter where you look; there are strong women everywhere, from home to our front-line workers, to executives in every industry; strong women walk among us. They may be your mother, sister, partner, or friend, they touch our lives every day, and we want to take a moment and celebrate them.”
