Casdagli Cigars launches the Villa Casdagli Line at TPE
After a year long planning process Casdagli Cigars adds to its lineup the Villa Casdagli Line consisting of four vitolas. It will be launched partnering with Tobaccos de Costa Rica SA. The new cigar line will be presented by its US Distributor, The Bespoke Company, at this years TPE show held 12-14 June in Las Vegas, USA. The Villa Casdagli Line will be available as a general production cigar to Casdagli Cigars’ distributors worldwide from June 2021.
The Villa Casdagli Line consists of 4 vitolas: Toro, Pigasus (a figurado), Corona Gorda and Robusto. While the rest of the lineup’s vitolas are a classic choice, the one with an endearing nickname of the Pigasus holds a special place in Casdagli Cigars’ history. The Pigasus pays homage to its original “flying pig” — one of the first cigars to be bespoke created for Bespoke Cigars (Casdagli Cigars’ predecessor) in Cuba during the 1990s.
The blends of the new lineup are based on the Daughters of the Wind robusto that was solely produced for the USA market and achieved a popular following. The blends consist of Peruvian, Dominican, Nicaraguan and Ecuadorian tobacco most of which have been enhanced and enriched by the factory’s special “mejorado” or “improvement”process. On receiving tobaccos at his factory in Puriscal master blender Don Olman Guzman selects some of the tobaccos to go through a second 2-4 month fermentation.
Before the final decision on chosen blends and choice of vitolas, the prototype products were distributed among a test group of 20+ clients. The feedback was exclusively positive, which gave the final encouragement to start the general production.
Casdagli Cigars’ cooperation with the Tabacos de Costa Rica SA, then known as Vegas Santiago, started in 2012. Also, in search for a producer outside of Cuba, a “flying pig” mold was created for Jeremy Casdagli at this factory. Famed for its access to some of Jeremy Casdagli’s favorite Peruvian tobacco and having the ability to produce the “flying pig” vitola, it was a natural choice of a factory to produce the Casdagli Cigars’ new line.
The design of the Villa Casdagli cigar ring and cigar box seek inspiration from Villa Casdagli, the home of Casdagli family patriarch Emmanuel Casdagli in the early 1900s in Cairo, Egypt. The Villa Casdagli cigar ring and boxes are adorned by the facade of the villa, its grand stained glass window and the peacocks that used to stroll around the gardens. The cotton buds reflect the Eygptian business that the Casdagli empire was once built upon.
Along side The Villa Casdagli Line at this years Tobacco Plus Expo (TPE ) The Bespoke Company will also be presenting some of the new range of luxury accessories that will accompany the new cigar line.
