At the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show, PDR Cigars launched a second offering under its AFR-75 brand called the AFR-75 Claro. As the name indicates this cigar incorporates a Claro wrapper from San Andres Mexico.
The AFR-75 derives its name from the initials its PDR Cigars’ Owner and Master Blender, Abraham Flores Rosario as well as his year of birth (1975). The brand made its debut in 2013 utilizing a San Andres Maduro.
In addition to the San Andres Claro wrapper, the AFR-75 Claro features similar tobacco components as the AFR-75 Maduro – a Nicaraguan Criollo 98 binder, and a filler consisting of Dominican Habano, Connecticut Broadleaf, and Nicaraguan Criollo 98. The cigar is being launched in the same four sizes as the AFR-75 Maduro, including the new Catador size that was introduced this year for that line.
The cigars are packaged in 24 count boxes.
