Brian Desind, owner of Privada Cigar Club, describes the cigar being released via LCA Plus for July as “one of the most special cigars we have ever been a part of.” The cigar is called Delectados and is named after the fictitious brand of cigars that appears in the James Bond film, No Time to Die. Each cigar comes in its own coffin, and both the coffin and band artwork take inspiration from the actual cigar band appearing in the film.
The cigar itself is significant for being the first release from the Tabacalera Diaz Cabrera factory. Desind notes that the owner of this new factory is “one of the most famous and recognizable master blenders in the Dominican Republic” despite the fact that “legal considerations” disallow using the owner’s actual name. “This is a cornerstone in cigar history,” says Desind. “The last few years leading up to the opening of the Diaz Cabrera factory have been met with a lot of speculation and excitement within the industry, and having the opportunity to release the first-ever cigar from this already legendary factory is a tremendous privilege.”
The cigar itself is a 6×50 toro featuring an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper over Dominican Hybrid binder and Dominican Piloto Viso, San Vicente, and Seco fillers. Desind indicates that this particular blend will “never be produced again.” Delectados has an MSRP of $15.00.
