If you liked the purple-hued, 70s-themed Super Fly from Oscar Valladares, he’s got another release coming up you should find equally as groovy.

At this week’s Tobacco Plus Expo (TPE) trade show, Valladares will be releasing the Super Fly Connecticut, which uses a Honduran Connecticut wrapper over a Honduran binder and fillers from Honduras, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. It is initially being offered in a single size, a 5 1/4 x 45 corona priced at $9. It will come packed in pink-hued boxes of 10 cigars priced at $90, and like the rest of Valladares’ cigars, is made at his factory in Danlí, Honduras.

The cigar is scheduled to begin shipping to retailers in the second or third week of February.

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.
