As a new brand launched in 2021, the Magic took us to a different level in the industry, opening a number of doors. It's been a thrill to see people discover and enjoy the Magic, and this new vitola will provide a more refined and flavorful experience of the line.

In addition to the Magic, Ace Prime – Tabacalera Pichardo is also now producing an updated blend of the Black, re-released in May 2022. Originally developed in partnership with Jesus Martinez, the Black was placed into limited production during the company's inaugural year and will now benefit from Tabacalera Pichardo's recent production expansion.

We always loved the blend of the Black, so when we brought it to and Pichardo, we wanted to keep the core flavor of ASP tobacco as well as the mix of “fuerte” and “suave” which is more unique in our Maduro. retained the essence of what makes the Black so special, but he also gave it greater depth and nuance. So for our customers, this will be the Black they love, only a little better.

The revamped Black uses the same San Andres wrapper, but with a new binder from the Masaya region, and fillers from Esteli (ASP), Jalapa and Pueblo Nuevo.

Black line will now be offered in its original size, Torpedo 6×52 but also in a new Gran Toro 6.5×56 – retailing for $11.49 and $12.49 respectively.

Cigar Co is also re-naming Libertad to Fye, effective June 30, 2022. The Jalapa -based blend stays the same, and is still made at Aganorsa Leaf. The name comes because of a trademark issue with ‘La Libertad' of Villiger S.A..

“When an Atlantan thinks something is phenomenal, we say it's ‘Fye.' And we think that represents this Aganorsa-produced cigar appropriately. In addition, though, two children of our company's founding families separately suggested the name; we loved that we could make our kids a part of the company in this way.
