The NEW Blackbird Glitch Cigars are coming to Flying Cigar Co. and will be available for pre-order soon! Blackbird Cigars makes some amazing eye-catching blends that people love. We are very excited to offer this new blend with a crazy story behind its creation!
According to the tale, Papo El Caballo, the nickname of Blackbird’s blender, was surprised by the contents of a blend he had checked upon his return from a trip last year. A meeting was called at the factory to investigate why the blend was not up to par. It was discovered that a new employee had written incorrect codes on two different types of tobacco, resulting in one tobacco being mistakenly used for the other during the blending process. This mistake led to the creation of a cigar that was not what El Caballo, whose nickname means “the horse” in Spanish, had intended.
The owners of Blackbird Cigar Co. convened another meeting to decide what to do about the error. After smoking the cigars, one of the owners asked El Caballo if he had tried one. He replied that he had but had not thought about whether he enjoyed it, as he was preoccupied with determining what had gone wrong. The outcome of this mishap is now called GLITCH, which is the upcoming release from Blackbird Cigar Co. GLITCH comprises three distinct blends, each using American and Dominican tobaccos in the filler, but with different wrappers.
- GLITCH Claro — Ecuador (Connecticut)
- GLITCH Habano — Ecuador (Habano)
- GLITCH Oscuro — Mexico (San Andrés)
Blackbird has aimed to offer this line at an affordable price point, with a Robusto size of 5 x 50 available for $6.10 and a Toro size of 6 x 52 priced at $6.60. All three blends will be available in Toros at Flying Cigar Co. with each box containing 20 cigars or individual 5 packs.
