The strongest offering from Oscar Valladares is set to be unveiled at the upcoming IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, but instead of giving it some aggressive name, he’s keeping it fly. Super Fly, to be exact.

The new Oscar Valladares Super Fly uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over a Honduran binder from the Copan region and fillers from Honduras, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. Of note, this is the first time that Dominican tobacco has been used in any of Valladares’ blends. It’s being produced at Valladares’ factory in Danlí, Honduras, and will be offered in three sizes:

  • Oscar Valladares Super Fly Super Corona (5 1/4 x 45) — $9 (Boxes of 20, $180)
  • Oscar Valladares Super Fly Super Toro (6 x 54) — $10.50 (Boxes of 20, $210)
  • Oscar Valladares Super Fly Super Gordo (6 1/2 x 60) — $11.50 (Boxes of 20, $230)

It’s a regular production addition to the company’s portfolio that will begin shipping to retailers in July.

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 previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
