A Teenager Called Condega

Condega ships its XV Aniversario edition: new blend in a golden band that will arrive to international markets in the following months.

Now Condega is fifteen, the Nicaraguan cigar brand can be compared with a teenager that comes out with its best gala attire: Condega XV Aniversario, new cigar line, with a new blend dressed with a double and shiny golden band, instead of its traditional red one. 

Gesinta, the company owner of the brand, has started to release a first small batch of the new Condega  XV Aniversario to the Spanish market, the country for which the brand was created fifteen years ago, but the intention in the following months is to incorporate the anniversary cigar to its regular portfolio and ship it to international markets.

Condega XV Aniversario uses a México San Andrés maduro wrapper, with a binder from Indonesia and a filler hundred per cent Nicaraguan. It comes in three formats: short robusto (4 ¼ x 50 – 108 mm x 50), doble robusto (5 x 54 – 127 mm x 54) and epicure (6 x 56 – 152 mm x 56). Its a medium to full body cigar.

Regarding prices, the new Condega will continue with the same value policy that distinguishes the brand. In fact, although it will vary later depending on the idiosyncrasy of each market, in Spain prices range from 4.90 euros for the short robusto format to 6.70 for the epicure. Big ones are sold in 20-count boxes, while the smallest one comes in 18-count boxes.

Javier Blanco Urgoiti is a Spanish journalist who is crazy about the processes surrounding tobacco that take place before its manufacturing in the cigar factory – in particular the secrets of tobacco cultivation. This is an area in which he tirelessly tries to educate himself. Javier started smoking and writing about cigars in 1998, initially for the Spanish magazines La boutique del fumador and La cava de cigarros, and later, as chief press officer at La Aurora, the oldest tobacco factory in the Dominican Republic. Now he writes for Cigar Journal as a correspondent in Spain.
