Today is International Women’s Day and Micallef Cigars is acknowledging the occasion with an annual release of a limited-edition cigar made in honor of a special woman on the Micallef team. Retailers can also expect the cigar to start arriving today as well.  

The Micallef Migdalia Special Edition was first released in 2021 and is dedicated to Migdalia Sanchez, who created the blend. Sanchez is the matriarch of the Gomez Sanchez family—her sons Edel and Joel are the blenders behind Micallef’s Legacy line. 

Migdalia has had a long history in the cigar world: she began working at the Partagás factory in Cuba back in 1964 and left Cuba in 1998 to join her family in Mexico. She later joined Micallef Cigars.

The special edition is a petit corona measuring 5 inches by 40 ring gauge. It consists of a Mexican Habano wrapper and a mix of Dominican and Nicaraguan filler. While the company calls the binder “Sumatra” without disclosing the country of origin, last year’s Migdalia was made with a Sumatra-seed binder from Ecuador. The cigar has a suggested retail price of $10 each and comes in boxes of 12.

“The Migdalia S.E.’s release is an important reminder to celebrate the women in all our lives and those in the cigar industry,” Amanda Micallef, vice president of Marketing, said in a press release. “Migdalia brings her unique brand of magic to the Micallef Cigars factory in Estelí [Nicaragua]. We all know women like this, the women who make our world turn. Let’s take a moment to spotlight their contributions.”
