The Candela cigar features an Ecuadorian Candela and Ecuadorian Habano wrapper which houses Nicaraguan/Jalapa filler, and Jalapa Habano binder. Candela comes in one vitola, a 6X52 Toro and comes in ten count boxes. MSRP is $14.

 This cigar features a Habano wrapper and candela atop a Nicaraguan binder, and aged long fillers from Nicaragua.

Tomastio stated: “Candela is the legacy of my ancestors, mixed with a musical theme and dedicated with love to all who carry within our Latin essence.”

Born in Pinar del Rio, Tomastio’s earliest memories are of his grandmother rolling cigars. An avid cigar smoker Tomasito Cruz felt it was the right time to pour the same passion into cigars that he did into music. Tomasito chose to collaborate with Tabacalera CM located in Estelí, Nicaragua. The name Candela (translates to fire) was chosen for his first release and is the namesake of his first album. His future cigar releases will carry the names and colors of his subsequent albums.
