Two new petite corona versions of the Villa Casdagli line are shipping to stores.

Both cigars are 4 x 35 petite coronas that are Cuban sandwich style cigars, a term that refers to a style of mixed filler cigar. In addition, both use an Ecuadorian wrapper and binder, the same as the Villa Casdagli Toro.

There are differences in the filler. The Nicarita is actually a filler tobacco, ligero from Estelí, Nicaragua. The Peruvita is also a filler tobacco, this time from Peru.

Each has an MSRP of $5 and is offered in packs of five and 25.

In an unrelated announcement, Casdagli Cigars has announced a new distribution deal with Luxury Tobacco World to bring its cigars to Bahrain. The company says that its cigars are already on sale at the Luxury Tobacco World store in Manama.

“I am particularly delighted to launch in Bahrain as I spent some very happy days in Bahrain in my youth when my family was based there in the early 1970s,” said Jeremy Casdagli, the owner of Casdagli Cigars, in a press release. “I will never forget the idyllic holidays on the shores of Bahrain away from my English prep school. The Tree of Life will always be an emotive image for me. Thank you Ali for bringing the Casdagli name back to this wonderful country.”
