If you watched our interview with Robert Caldwell on Episode 138 of Stogie Geeks, you heard him mention plans of a cigar he was making that would come out of Central America. This past week, details of that release, Blind Man’s Bluff were announced to Cigar Aficionado. The cigar is being made at the Agroindustrias Laepe S.A. in Danli, Honduras – the factory owned by Davidoff and the place where Camacho Cigars are made. Plans for Blind Man’s Bluff to make its debut at the 2015 IPCPR Trade Show.
Currently Caldwell has produced his other lines at Tabacalera William Ventura in Tamboril, Dominican Republic. He has also announced plans to move production of those Dominican lines to the Caldwell Cigar Factory. The Ventura family will still play a role in the production process in his new factory.
As for Agroindustrias Laepe S.A., back in February Davidoff announced plans to build a new facility to replace the current one.
