Next week, a limited number of Mombacho Cigars S.A.’s third line will begin heading to stores in the U.S. and Switzerland.
Casa Favilli—named after the company’s factory in Granada, Nicaragua—is the company’s newest line. As with the rest of the portfolio, it’s a Nicaraguan puro. Filler tobaccos come from Condega and Jalapa, while the wrapper is a broadleaf varietal grown in Nicaragua.
“Casa Favilli is very special to me,” said Claudio Sgroi, president of Mombacho Cigars, in a press release. “This cigar is the first ever Nicaraguan Broadleaf in the industry. I am proud to say we have done something truly unique.”
It’s offered in three sizes.
- Casa Favilli Robusto (5 x 50) — $10.95 (Boxes of 12, $131.40)
- Casa Favilli Toro (6 x 52) — $11.95 (Boxes of 12, $143.40)
- Casa Favilli Belicoso (5 1/2 x 52) — $12.95 (Boxes of 12, $155.40)
Mombacho Cigars S.A. says it will ship approximately 150 boxes of each of the three sizes as part of a soft launch. It expects the line to ship as a regular production offering next year.
Update (Nov. 28, 2018) — The Robusto size was initially listed as 5 x 52, Mombacho Cigars S.A. has corrected its original announcement to indicate it measures 5 x 50.
