Null

Casa Fernandez is finalizing plans on a limited edition cigar that will debut at the upcoming IPCPR trade show and celebrate the 35th anniversary of the company.

Paul Palmer, president of Casa Fernandez/Tabacalera Tropical,  said that the cigar, which will be known as the Casa Fernandez 35th Anniversary, will be a 6 1/2 x 54 box pressed, double-ended Torpedo that will use “the best of the best Aganorsa tobacco.” Production will be capped at 2,000 boxes of ten for a total run of 20,000 cigars, and will be made at their Miami factory where all Casa Fernandez cigars are produced.

The cigars are slated to have a retail price of $14 per cigar, and Palmer and his cousin, Eduardo Fernández, will hand-sign each of the 2,000 boxes in this one-time project. Fernández purchased Tabacalera Tropical from Pedro Martin in 2002; Martin started that company in 1978.

Casa Fernandez is also planning a line extension of their Miami Reserva, as they will be introducing a box-pressed Maduro version. Many of the specific details are still being finalized, though Palmer said they will come in 15 or 20-count boxes and will also be made in Miami using a San Andrés wrapper. He also noted that they will be available in 54 and 60 ring gauge vitolas, though hadn’t finalized the lengths.

At the 2012 IPCPR trade show, Casa Fernandez introduced the Casa Fernandez-Miami Aganorsa Leaf Maduro Box Pressed as well as the Casa Fernandez-Miami Arsenio.

About the author

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.
