Lost & Found Cigars has announced the release of a third vitola in its Pepper Cream Soda blend. This one introduces a 5 3/4 x 46 Corona Gorda size being called “Butter”. The cigar will feature packaging similar to bars of butter. The cigar is a small batch limited production available in 4 and 8 count packaging options.
Pepper Cream Soda was one of the first releases by Lost & Found when it was released back in 2014 in a Robusto size. Earlier this year, a Toro size was added.
Lost & Found is a project between Robert Caldwell, Tony Bellatto, and Jaclyn Sears. The project is a continuing series of extremely limited production blends of some of the most rare, exotic and hard to acquire tobacco varietals that the boutique cigar industry has yet seen”. The concept involves searching for some of these unique blends that have been locked up in aging rooms for sometime and then make them available to the market. The company says the concept came as a result of Caldwell’s travels and his desire to explore some of these unusual blends that have been made available.
The blend to the Pepper Cream Soda Butter has a similar profile to the other sizes:
Wrapper: Ecuadoran Brazilian-seed Arapiraca
Binder: Dominicana Piloto
Filler: Dominican Piloto, Dominican Cuban Seed HVA (Habana Vuelta Abajo), Dominican Habano
Country of Origin: Dominican Republic
At this time, only the Butter size is being released. The other two sizes are previous small batch releases.
Butter: 5 3/4 x 46
Robusto: 5 x 50
Toro: 6 x 50
I’m smoking it now and it’s outstanding!
