At the 2021 Premium Cigar Association Trade Show, Ian Reith’s Dapper Cigar Company introduced its third blend under the La Madrina line, the La Madrina Shade.

La Madrina Shade consists of an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper over a Mexican San Andres binder, and Dominican, Nicaraguan, and U.S. fillers. Production is handled out of the Nicaraguan American Cigars S.A. factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. The cigars will be available in four sizes, each in 20-count boxes.

La Madrina has been made available in a Natural (Habano) and Maduro offering. The theme of La Madrina is the Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations. La Madrina translates to “godmother” and it was a name given to a woman named Yolanda Garfias Woo. Based in San Francisco, Garfias Woo is credited with educating many people in California about the Day of the Dead celebrations.
