Roundtable 15: Micallef Blue

The Smoking Syndicate Roundtable tackles the Micallef Blue Robusto

Micallef Blue made its official nationwide debut at PCA 2024. It’s the second cigar in the unofficial “color” series following 2023’s Micallef Black. With both Blue and Black, Micallef is targeting the market with a high quality premium cigar in the $7.00 to $8.00 range. The Micallef Blue was also a cigar favorite by the Cigar Coop Coalition among the 2024 PCA releases.

“Black quickly became a humidor staple for consumers and brick-and-mortar partners for its unparalleled quality at a compelling price point. Continuing this legacy, Blue offers a unique blend designed to captivate and satisfy the palate without compromising quality or affordability,” said Micallef Cigars in a press release.

The Micallef Blue is described as a medium-bodied cigar with an Old World feel. The blend features a San Andrés Sumatra wrapper over an Ecuadorian Habano binder. The fillers are from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. Packaged in 25-count boxes, Blue is offered in two sizes: Robusto and Toro. The company is keeping pricing in the $7.00 to $8.00 range.

“Following the success of Micallef Black, our job is to exceed expectations,” said Dan Thompson, President of Micallef Cigars. “The Micallef Blue is a slightly sweet San Andrés Sumatra, praised by those who enjoyed it early—another premium experience at an unbeatable pocket-friendly price.”

The Micallef Blue Robusto Roundtable will be live-streamed off The Smoking Syndicate’s Facebook page. A condensed version will be packaged after the show on YouTube and our podcast network. Broadcast time is Sunday June 9th 10:30pm Eastern time, 9:30pm Central time.
