Chogüi released the Dos77 in July 2015. As the story goes, during the drive between the undisclosed factory in Tamboril where the Primera Edición, their first cigar, was made and the destination of Santo Domingo, one box of cigars was lost: box number 277. That lost box became the inspiration for the company’s sophomore release, Dos77, or 277.
Dos77 is a 5 x 52 vitola dubbed Rogusto, with a Havana-seed Dominican wrapper, criollo 98 binder and a filler blend that contains “habano 2020” and corojo. While this will be an ongoing release, 300 boxes of 16—known as the Birdhouse Edition–were produced for the launch, with another 25,000 cigars produced for the second wave, though they will be released in boxes of 20.
We were part of the initial launch of these cigars!
