At the 2018 IPCPR Trade Show, PDR Cigars expanded its El Criollito line with four new sizes – each of the four 4 1/2 inch and under in length.

The new sizes include the Club (4 1/2 x 30), Perla (3 3/4 x 42), Purito (4 x 34), and Short Gordo (4 1/4 x 58). The new additions bring the total number of vitolas in the line to 8.

El Criollito is a line that was originally released for the European market. At the 2017 IPCPR, the line was officially launched for the U.S.. The blend for El Criollito features an Ecuadorian Criollo Rosado wrapper over a San Andres binder, and fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. Each of the sizes in the El Criollito line are presented in 24-count boxes and are produced at owner Abe Flores’ PDR Cigars’ factory in the Dominican Republic.
