At this week’s TPE 2023 trade show in Las Vegas, Wildfire Cigar Co. will show off two new releases.
The Intro is described as the first of a three-part series that has been modeled off the parts of a rock song: intro, hook and breakdown. As for the cigar, Wildfire’s The Intro is a 6 x 46 corona gorda that uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over a corojo binder and fillers from Pennsylvania and the Estelí and Jalapa regions of Nicaragua. It is made at Fábrica Centroamericana de Tabaco S.A. in Danlí, Honduras, best known as Cavalier Genève’s factory. This is the first time that Wildfire is working with this factory.
Each cigar has an MSRP of $12 and it is limited to 700 boxes of 10 cigars. Wildfire says The Intro is ready to start shipping.
Also coming from Fábrica Centroamericana de Tabaco S.A. is a new regular production line called Wanderer.
It’s a three-size line that uses an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper over a Nicaraguan habano binder and four fillers: piloto from the Dominican Republic, broadleaf from Pennsylvania and tobaccos from Jalapa and Paraguay.
- Wanderer Corona (5 5/8 x 46) — $9.99 (Box of 20, $199.80)
- Wanderer Robusto (5 1/4 x 50) — $10.99 (Box of 20, $219.80)
- Wanderer Toro (6 x 52) — $11.99 (Box of 20, $239.80)
“Sometimes not having direction leads you down a path of discovery. The Wanderer is that discovery,” said Jeremy McDonald, Wildfire’s founder, in a press release. “It’s a new addition to my portfolio coming out of FTC Honduras. I wanted to create something that was rich, had strength, and highlighted some tobaccos that are not as widely used, while offering something familiar. Smoke it and let it take you on whatever journey you choose.”
Wanderer is scheduled to begin shipping in March.
