Founders Cigar Co to Release New Candela at PCA


Founders Cigar Co. Scheduled to Release New Cigar at PCA 2022: Hamilton Candela

North Oaks, Minnesota (June 21, 2022) Founders has always made decisions as a company based on our primary goal of encouraging and building community. Our first four blends were selected to be medium-bodied and approachable to welcome even the newest of people into the cigar community. One of the ways we have navigated through our blends is by talking to the factory about what the workers are excited about and what they are drawn to. This introduced us to the cigar that would become our Hamilton Candela. Anything that makes its way into the consistent rotation of those handling cigars every day is something we want to pay attention to. After looking into the history of Candela cigars and seeing that they used to be one of the most popular blends in America, we knew we wanted to add it to our lineup. Alexander Hamilton has been one of our most requested historical figures to name a cigar after. The interesting thing about Hamilton is that he was the chief architect of the American financial and banking system. Naming our green cigar after the man greatly influential for our “greenback” system seemed only fitting! We loved the smooth and approachable experience of this cigar. Getting floral and fruit notes to start and working its way into some peppermint in the second two-thirds made this a well-received blend to our initial testers.
