This cigar features a Habano wrapper and candela atop a Nicaraguan binding, and long aged Nicaraguan fillers.

Tomastio said, “Candela is the legacy of my ancestors, mixed with theme music and lovingly dedicated to all those who carry within us 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 the time was right to put the same passion into cigars that he had in music. Tomasito chose to collaborate with Tabacalera CM located in Estelí, Nicaragua. The name Candela (translates to fire) was chosen for her first release and is the namesake of her debut album. His future cigar releases will bear the names and colors of his subsequent albums.
