At the 2021 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show, Oscar Valladares Tobacco & Co unveiled a new cigar with a 1980s -inspired cigar called McFly.
Two years ago, Oscar Valladares unveiled the Super Fly line, with a 1970s theme cigar drawing inspiration from the 1972 film Super Fly which had a soundtrack album by Curtis Mayfield. McFly fast-forwards to the 1980s, and in particular it draws its inspiration from the trilogy of “Back to the Future” films. In particular, the name McFly refers to the lead character, Marty McFly played by Michael J. Fox. Much like Super Fly’s packaging captured the 1970s vibe, McFly’s packaging is meant to capture the 1980s vibe.
McFly features a Mexican San Andres wrapper, a Honduran binder, and a combination of Honduran, Nicaraguan, and Dominican fillers. The cigars are available in three sizes and each is presented in 20-count boxes.
Earlier this week, a soft launch of the McFly was held at Tailored Smoke Concord in Concord, North Carolina and home of the Oscar Valladares VIP lounge. The Oscar Valladares team told Cigar Coop the packaging was in a prototype stage and to expect a more embellished and holographic look to the final packaging.
