El Criollito was originally positioned as a European-market brand. It was launched in Spain and other European countries, but is now available here in the U.S.
"This blend was created for the Spanish market," brand owner Abe Flores told Cigar Aficionado. "Jaime de Juana (my distributor in Spain), myself and eight of the best retailers in Spain worked over a year on this blend. We would meet at the factory during ProCigar and work on this blend and then we worked on the packaging."
El Criollito is enrobed in an Ecuadoran Criollo Rosado wrapper and contains a Mexican San Andrés binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.
