"I wanted to celebrate Felipe Gregorio's fifteenth anniversary with a premium cigar like nothing the market has seen," reports Philip Wynne, company founder and president.

"Our new Felipe Power achieves this, with its exclusive Costa Rican wrapper tobacco, derived from 'ancestral' pre-Embargo Cuban seed. The variety is Pelo de Oro (Golden Hair), and tobacco from these seeds has not been available anywhere ... not even in Cuba ... since before Castro seized power. It turns the clock back 50 years to Cuba's Golden Age of cigars."

Wynne has also selected extraordinary tobacco for Felipe Power's filler. The Nicaraguan and Piloto Cubano tobaccos are triple-fermented and aged a full 12 years. They, plus an aged Nicaraguan Habana 92 binder, give the cigar full body, yet with a velvet-smooth finish.

The cigars are hand crafted in the Dominican Republic and aged in cedar for 3 months. Felipe Power is offered in Double Corona (7-1/2 x 50), "Full Power" (6 x 60), "Triple R" (5-1/2 x 55), No. II (6 x 54 Torpedo), "Special R" (5 x 52), and Petite Torpedo (4-1/2 x 50). Suggested retail pricing ranges from $7 to $12.

The cigars are presented in cedar boxes of 26 that include a tray. They will appear on better tobacconists' shelves this Summer. "Felipe Gregorio built its reputation on full-bodied Cuban-style cigars," states Wynne. "I believe Felipe Power's opulent taste and aroma will set new standards, as other cigar makers discover this exciting new strain of true Havana tobacco."
