Mombacho Cigars S.A. announced today the shipment of their upcomming cigar, Casa Favilli, named after the factory in which all Mombacho Cigars are made. The Mombacho Casa Favilli is the first cigar to use a Broadleaf wrapper grown in Nicaragua. The first shipment is being called a limited pre-release and will consist of 150 boxes of each vitola. Regular production will take place in 2019. Each comes in 12 count boxes and the vitolas are as follows: Robusto – 5 x 50 – MSRP $10.95, Toro – 6 x 52 – MSRP $11.95, Torpedo – 5 ½ x 52 – MSRP $12.95.
“Casa Favilli is very special to me,” said Claudio Sgroi, President and Master Blender of Mombacho Cigars. “This cigar is the first ever Nicaraguan Broadleaf in the industry. I am proud to say we have done something truly unique.”
Casa Favilli is the third regular production line from Mombacho Cigars and like the all cigars coming from Mombacho are Nicaraguan puros. The blend uses a Nicaraguan Broadleaf wrapper with binder and filler tobaccos from Jalapa and Condega.
“This is a unique cigar,” said Robert Rasmussen, Brand Manager of Mombacho Cigars. “Casa Favilli features a wrapper that has never been used before. It is on the full side of the strength spectrum and, in true Mombacho fashion, is packed with flavor.”
