La Flor Dominicana is extending its Air Bender line to include a maduro offering. The company has announced that the Air Bender Maduro will be launched at the 2015 IPCPR Trade Show. While this isn’t the first time an Air Bender Maduro has been released, it now will have an on-going spot in the LFD portfolio.
The Air Bender Maduro will feature an Ecuadorian Habano (Maduro) wrapper over Dominican binder and filler. According to La Flor Dominicana Vice President of Sales Jonathan Carney, this is same wrapper as was featured on the Air Bender Maduro that was released as a part of La Flor Dominicana’s OYA sampler.
It should not be confused with the Air Bender Maduro released as a part of the Casa de Tabaco humidor or the Air Bender Maduro that was the company’s 2012 TAA release. Those two offerings featured a different blend which included a Brazilian wrapper.
At a glance, here is a look at the La Flor Dominicana Air Bender Maduro:
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano (Maduro)
Country of Origin: Dominican Republic (Tabacalera La Flor)
The Air Bender Maduro is being released in three sizes – each in 20 count boxes. These three sizes have counterparts in the Air Bender Habano blend.
