Felipe Power Launched

Dec 22, 2006 | By David Savona

Philip Wynne, creator of Felipe Gregorio cigars, has shipped his 15th anniversary smokes. Called Felipe Power, the cigars are powerful expressions of Wynne's decade and a half in the cigar business.

"It took me over three years from tasting the first wrapper to bring out the cigar," said Wynne. "I believe it to be one of my best."

The cigars are made from a mix of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos, with a binder from Nicaragua. They are finished with a Costa Rican wrapper called Pelo de Oro, and are made in the Dominican Republic.

For a vertical brand tasting of Felipe Power, see an upcoming issue of Cigar Insider.
