Los Caidos is a specially crafted sampler of cigars, with a meaning that’s dear to the hearts of Steve Zengel, the creator, and all pure-blooded Americans. Honoring a friend and fallen officer, the sales of Los Caidos support the families of the police who responded during 9/11. The box contains 11 cigars: 10 toros, and 1 special figurado.
When you receive them, Zengel suggests burning the figurado first. This leaves two empty spaces with ten cigars, or 10-0-0, the code often used to refer to an “officer down”. The final, empty space is intentionally left empty for remembrance of the fallen. As for the blend, these are 100% Nicaraguan Puros, with blending and construction handled by AGANORSA. Full-flavored but still nicely mellow in body, these cigars will satisfy the beginner and connoisseur alike. In our humble opinions, with the proceeds from this one going to charity, these are the best cigars money can buy.
Note: This year's Los Caidos release comes with your choice of a Red or Blue box. Proceeds from the Red box go to the families of fallen Firefighters, and the blue goes to police. The blends of both are exactly the same.
