The swansong of late master blender Estélo Padrón. Overseeing production of Punch and Hoyo de Monterrey cigars in the U.S. market, he held the prestigious position of production manager in Villazon’s renowned HATSA factory in Honduras. And if you’re wondering, about that name, it’s exactly what you’re thinking.
Estélo, like many of the industry’s best blenders, was a Cuban native. He moved to Spain briefly in 1969 before working with his brother, Jose Orlando Padrón at the Padron factory in Nicaragua. He stayed there until 1971 before branching out on his own.
Cofradia’s name drew inspiration from Simon Bolivar and his often daring war strategies. The word means “brotherhood” and as such is perfect for sharing with friends. Flavors run bold, dark, and full-bodied with notes of earth, sweet wood, peppers, and spice – all thanks to a medley of Honduran and Nicaraguan tobaccos beaneath an Ecuador Sumatra wrapper.
Teaming up with Robert Caldwell (Caldwell Cigar Co.) and Justin Andrews (STG), Bolivar’s Cofradia gets a flavor tweak. Now with Domincan, Honudran, and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos, the blend comes in your choice of a natural Ecuador Sumatra or Connecticut Broadleaf that gets even zippier than the original!
