In an unlikely team-up, boutique brand owner Robert Caldwell has collaborated with tobacco giant Scandinavian Tobacco Group for a limited-edition cigar that started shipping to retailers yesterday. Called Bolivar Cofradia Lost & Found, the name is a fusion of Caldwell’s Lost & Found and STG’s Bolivar Cofradia brand, a line of cigars found mostly in catalogs and online.

“Lost & Found started when a Central American factory gave me a rare blend to sell in the U.S.” Caldwell says. “And today with the release of this capsule collection from Bolivar Cofradia, it feels like Lost & Found has come full circle.”

Caldwell and Justin Andrews, STG’s new business development manager, worked together and created two blends—EMS and an Oscuro. The EMS brand is wrapped in an Ecuadoran Sumatra-seed cover leaf. Underneath is a Connecticut broadleaf binder and Dominican, Nicaraguan and Honduran filler. It’s meant to be mild-to-medium bodied, while the stronger Oscuro line was blended to lean earthy and peppery with its Connecticut broadleaf wrapper, Ecuador Sumatra binder and filler of Dominican, Nicaraguan and Honduran tobacco.

Both brands come in a Robusto size, measuring 5 inches long by 54 ring gauge, and a 6-by-54 Toro. They have suggested retail prices of $6.99 and $7.99, respectively and are presented in handy five packs printed with the whimsical type of graphics Caldwell brands are known for.

The cigars are made in Honduras at STG’s HATSA factory and distributed  by STG subsidiary Forged Cigar Co.
