At the 2022 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show, Dapper Cigar Company showcased an offering under its Desvalido brand known as Desvalido Disla.
Desvalido Disla is named for Raul Disla, who is the production manager at the NACSA factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. Dapper owner Ian Reith works with Disla on the blending for the cigars Dapper produces at NACSA, but ultimately Reith selects the final blends he wants for his portfolio. It turns out that Disla had blended his own version of Desvalido that Reith was impressed with, and wanted to put in the portfolio. Reith felt this is a great way to showcase some of the great work Disla was doing and he put Disla’s name on the blend.
As for the blend, Reith says the only common denominator between Desvalido and Desvalido Disla is the Ecuadorian Habano Rosado wrapper. Reith says the fillers are ones more to Disla’s liking. The Desvalido Disla is produced in the same sizes (Lonsdale, Robusto, Toro, Double Corona), same box counts (20), and same pricing as the original Desvalido.
