Casdagli Cigars has announced a line extension of sorts for its Villa Casdagli line launched last year. We just reviewed the Villa Casdagli here. Peruvita and Nicarita will be the first in the Villa Casdagli Petit Exquisitos line. Each of these cigars represents the single tobaccos found in Villa Casdagli Toro vitola.
Villa Casdagli Petit Exquisitos are a sandwich filler type of cigars containing a mixture of long and short leaf of just one type of tobacco. The original idea of Villa Casdagli Petit Exquisitos was born during a tasting in the UAE to introduce the Villa Casdagli Line when 6 petit exquisitos were created to represent each of the tobaccos found in the Villa Casdagli Toro. Led by the participants’ very positive impression of the varying characteristics of the different tobaccos, the decision was finally made to create this unique line after Luke Dobbs, the creator of Casdagli’s cigar lounge in Tallinn, urged us to try out these smokes in the lounge. Immediately these became a big success.
I wanted to create these petit exquisitos to allow our botl and sotl to truly experience and understand the individual tobaccos that form the blend of our Villa Casdagli Line cigars. We truly want our clients to comprehend our cigar blends,”
Jeremy Casdagli, the Owner of Casdagli Cigars.
As the name suggests Peruvita represents a Peruvian filler of just one tobacco – Peruvian Habano Seco that has been enhanced and enriched by the factory’s special “mejorado” or “improvement”process. Nicarita represents Nicaraguan Esteli Ligero as filler.
The petit exquisitos share the same Ecuadorian binder and wrapper leaf with Villa Casdagli Toro, to ensure the sufficient combustibility of the vitolas.
Both cigars measure 4 x 35 and use the same Ecuadorian wrapper, and Ecuadorian binder. Both cigars come in 25 and 5 count cello bundles. The MSRP will be $5 in the US. These new cigars will be launched at the TPE trade show near the end of January and will ship in March.
The petit exquisitos were officially launched for international markets this month, January 2022. There was a limited release in Norway, Belgium and Estonia in December 2021.
The cigars are rolled in Costa Rica by the Tabacos de Costa Rica under the supervision of Master Blender Don Olman Guzman.
