Casadagli Cigars’ new Villa Casdagli will be shown off today ahead of its debut next month.

The Villa Casdagli line will be shown off at the Tobacco Plus Expo (TPE 2021) trade show that begins today in Las Vegas. It’s named after the Cairo home of Emmanuel Casdagli, a Greek businessman who began the family’s cotton business in the late 19th century. The house has served as the inspiration for various parts of the company’s lines over the years, notably, a wallpaper pattern from the house is used on many of the company’s products.

Blend-wise, the new line is a modified version of the Daughters of the Wind Robusto, an American market exclusive. It uses an Ecuadorian wrapper and binder over a mixture of fillers from the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Nicaragua and Peru. That being said, the fillers ratios change from size to size.

  • Villa Casdagli Robusto (5 x 52) — $12.50 (Box of 12, $150)
  • Villa Casdagli Corona Gorda (5 1/2 x 46) — $13.50 (Box of 12, $162)
  • Villa Casdagli Toro (6 x 54) — $15 (Box of 12, $180)
  • Villa Casdagli Pigasus (5 x 54/58) — $16 (Box of 12, $192)

For example, the Robusto and Pigasus sizes have two Peruvian fillers, while the other two sizes only have one.

The line is made at Tabacos de Costa Rica S.A. and is expected to begin shipping to stores next month.
