The Kuwait Diplomat Cigar for Beyond Cigar Made by Kafie 1901(For Kuwaiti Diplomats)
As I look at this cigar band I’m laughing to myself thinking “wow, we really get the coolest cigars”. I mean, who would have thought it? Here is a $24 cigar that was made specifically for Kuwait’s premier cigar shop specifically for the Kuwaiti diplomats. This is one of the richest countries in the world and this cigar is made for their top people, and somehow…we have it in our box! I’m patting myself on the back for this one, folks. Dr. Gaby Kafie is a Honduran tobacco expert. He owns a factory there, ferments his own tobacco and makes his own coffee. Based in Miami when Stateside, the good doctor has a long history of tobacco fermenting and blending. We will be seeing more of Dr. Kafie in the club so I’ll save some of his details for those encounters. Back to Kuwait. Basem & Hassan Al Ghadban own one of the highest end luxury cigar shops in Kuwait called Beyond Cigar. They had this cigar made for their VIP clients and the diplomats of Kuwait. They chose the highest level of tobacco for these cigars. The MSRP at their shop is $24 per stick. It took weeks of calling and emailing to get the approval to put them in our club. I agreed that under no circumstance would I sell this cigar in our shop on the Privada Cigar Club website so please understand that there will not be any more available for sale. The cigar is made using a rare Mexican Broadleaf wrapper and the binder is Honduran. The fillers are a mix of Nicaraguan, Dominican and Honduran. There is rumor that some of the filler is Cuban. And while I do get some notes of the Cuban twang on the cold draw, I’ve been assured it is not Cuban tobacco as it would be illegal for anyone to sell Cuban tobacco in the United States. Let’s thank @beyondicgars and @kafie1901brands on Instagram for being kind enough to share these amazing cigars with us!
