The 1878 collection from PDR Cigars is one of the company's oldest and most recognized brands, being a go-to favorite for many cigar hobbyists due to an impressive combination of quality and low-cost value. This collection includes four popular varieties: Capa Natural, Capa Oscura, Capa Madura, and Capa Sun Grown.
With the PDR 1878 Capa Sun Grown cigar (aka PDR 1878 Recordando a Santiago Capa Sun Grown), the blend pays homage to Dominican cigarmaking heritage, where the PDR Cigars factory is based. The blend begins with a select Ecuadorian sun-grown claro wrapper, which is draped over a Dominican Criollo '98 binder and fillers of Dominican Corojo seco and ligero tobacco primings. This fan-favorite has undergone a recipe update and packaging overhaul for the modern era, offering the bang-for-your-buck value that cigar fanatics crave, now in a bright and vibrant presence for the humidor.
