Cigar News: Micallef Cigars Releases the Micallef A Gordo, the Second Vitola in the Popular Blend

Micallef Cigars has announced the release of the new Micallef A Gordo. Micallef credits their Ambassador group with making the A its most popular blend. The Micallef A Gordo is the blend’s second vitola; and marks the first anniversary of the original, a Churchill, coming to market. The Micallef A is a collaboration and celebration of the Micallef Cigars Ambassadors, who chose the name. When Micallef Cigars initially announced the blend, it was referred to as the “TBN” or “To Be Named.” Micallef invited Ambassadors to smoke the un-named limited release cigar and chose the cigar’s name.

The (6 x 60) Micallef A has a blend described as:

  • Wrapper: Nicaraguan Maduro
  • Binder: Sumatra
  • Filler: Nicaraguan and Dominican

Al Micallef, founder of Micallef Cigars noted:

“Community is at the center of everything we do at Micallef Cigars, and The Micallef “A” named by our Ambassadors is a testament to them. We’re delighted to be selling it through our Brick-and-Mortar partners exclusively. ”

Dan Thompson, president, shared

“Our Ambassadors and Brick-and-Mortar partners over the last two years have been very vocal they wanted more Gordo options from Micallef Cigars. And we’re excited to release the Micallef A as a Gordo based on their feedback. It’s been awesome to see the incredible demand on the Micallef A blend and how our factory in Estelí has risen to the occasion.”

The Micallef A Gordo has an MSRP set at $9.50 and will begin shipping to retailers on August 23.
