Casdagli’s latest release has arrived on the shelves of a half dozen retailers.

The Villa Casdagli is the newest release from the company, a four-size line that is named after the Cairo home of Emmanuel Casdagli, a Greek businessman who began the family’s cotton business in the late 19th century.

Casdagli announced the cigar at the TPE 2021 trade show in May and plans on doing a formal unveiling at next week’s 2021 PCA Convention & Trade Show, but six stores in the U.S. already have the cigars.

Villa Casdagli is a modified version of the Daughters of the Wind Robusto. It uses an Ecuadorian wrapper and binder over a mixture of fillers from the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Nicaragua and Peru. 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.
