At the 2023 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show, Freud Cigar Company showcased the Carlos & Maria Amorío. Carlos & Maria is a new brand that is separate from the Freud Cigar Company brand. Amorío is the first release.
It’s safe to say that Carlos & Maria is a “sister brand” to Freud Cigar Company. While it’s sold by Freud Cigar Company, it’s similar to the Agape release from last year – so there is Sigmund Freud theming around it. Carlos & Maria appears to be a very classic style. Amorio translates to “love affair” and the theme of the brand seems to be focused on romance.
Carlos & Maria Amorío is produced at Tabacalera William Ventura and blended by Wiber Ventura (who blended the Freud Superego). It’s a blend that consists of an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Indonesian Sumatra binder, and a combination of Dominican, Nicaraguan, and Ecuadorian fillers. The cigars come in four sizes: Robusto (50 x 5), Corona Gorda (46 x 5 1/2), Toro (54 x 6), and Churchill (48 x 7). Each is presented in ten-count boxes. Pricing ranges from $17.00 SRP to $23.00 SRP per cigar.
The cigar is expected to ship sometime this summer.
