Justin Andrews of Scandinavian Tobacco Group and Robert Caldwell of Lost & Found teamed up to create the new Bolivar Cofradia.  This cigar was released in both EMS and Oscuro wrappers in mazos of five cigars.  Justin and Robert were given full access to all the tobacco library available at the HATSA factory in Danlí, Honduras.  A description of the process was given in the press release, (you can find more information here):

Justin Andrews said, “Bolivar Cofradia made waves when we re-launched the brand in 2020. It’s fitting that we’re now partnering with Robert Caldwell, given that he’s made a lot of noise in the premium cigar category with his Lost & Found line. This collaboration gave us the opportunity to work with the hidden gems waiting to be discovered in our tobacco library, and we’ve definitely done them justice.”

Robert Caldwell noted, “Lost & Found started when a Central American factory gave me a rare blend to sell in the US, and today with the release of this capsule collection from Bolivar Cofradia, it feels like Lost & Found has come full circle. I would have never imagined standing among a sea of bales at HATSA, knowing that any tobacco we wanted to blend with was available to Justin and me. This collection represents the power of a strong collaboration.”
