Casa Favilli, Mombacho Cigars’ third regular production line has begun to ship to retailers in a limited fashion. The company says it will begin shipments to retailers in the U.S. and Switzerland the first week in December.
Casa Favilli is a cigar that pays homage to the company’s factory located in Grenada, Nicaragua. The cigar is a Nicaraguan puro, but is highlighted by a Nicaraguan Broadleaf wrapper. The remainder of the blend uses binder and filler tobaccos from Jalapa and Condega.
“Casa Favilli is very special to me,” said Claudio Sgroi, President and Master Blender of Mombacho Cigars in a press release. “This cigar is the first ever Nicaraguan Broadleaf in the industry. I am proud to say we have done something truly unique.”
“This is a unique cigar,” said Robert Rasmussen, Brand Manager of Mombacho Cigars. “Casa Favilli features a wrapper that has never been used before. It is on the full side of the strength spectrum and, in true Mombacho fashion, is packed with flavor.”
Casa Favilli is available in three sizes (Robusto, Toro, and, Torpedo). Each is presented in 12-count boxes. A total of 150 boxes of each size is being shipping in the limited first run.
