Lost & Found: Pepper Cream Soda Boxed Special Edition Robusto Cigars
Product Number: 007-864-0042
To say that Lost & Found is a special project is to put it somewhat mildly. Lost & Found is a clandestine endeavor created by Robert Caldwell of Caldwell Cigar Company and Tony Bellatto of La Barba Cigars. The brand itself doesn't fashion or create any of their own cigars, per se. Instead, Caldwell and Bellatto have utilized the potential of "lost" cigars forgotten in the vast warehouses of other manufacturers. It goes something like this: Whenever a cigar brand rolls and boxes cigars for a particular line or release, they're inevitably left with, well, leftovers — either only so many boxes were made or the series was capped at a certain number, the surplus left on the factories' shelves. Caldwell and Bellatto, then, "find" these "lost" cigars, rebrand them, and offer them to consumers. While the blends' original components and company of manufacture remain anonymous, connoisseurs can count on them being from some of the most reputable names in the industry and having several years worth of age to them. Lost & Found offers some of the best kept secrets in the cigar industry and has developed a loyal following.
Offered here is the 2021 release of the Pepper Cream Soda: the Pepper Cream Soda Habano, expanding upon Lost & Found's numerous other Pepper Cream blends. It's a cigar of 2015 vintage, comprising fillers of Criollo Thrice tobacco and a Criollo binder, both from the Dominican Republic, all in a wrapper of Dominican HVA leaf — a Habano-seed varietal from Cuba's prestigious Vuelta Abajo growing region. Normally, Lost & Found cigars are only available in wrapped, multiple-count packages, but this limited-edition version is offered in a box, with single cigars available, and is actually of 2014 vintage — all in 5.25" x 52 Robusto size.
