Y Panda Domino starts shipping today


Using an improved blend from the original Y Panda blend, the 6 x 52 Toro Y Panda Domino arrives in cigar stores today.

Domino uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper and two binders (one Arapiraca from Brazil and one San Andres from Mexico) with all fillers sourced from Nicaragua. The regular production Y Panda line uses an Ecuadorian Corojo 98 wrapper, a double binder of Brazilian Arapiraca and Ecuadorian Sumatra, and all Nicaraguan fillers including Viso from Jalapa and Seco from Esteli.

Y Panda Domino has a suggested retail price of $16.10 per cigar and is sold in boxes of 18. Initial production was limited to 300 boxes and was only available to retailers who attended the 2024 PCA Convention & Trade Show in late March and ordered the cigars there, but the company left open the possibility that these retailers could place orders again, which would result in an increase in the number of cigars produced. The cigars are manufactured at the Luciano Tabacos SA factory in Esteli, Nicaragua.

Y Panda is the creation of Linxu “Panda” Yan, who worked as an intern at Luciano Cigars for over a year before collaborating with Luciano Meirelles to create the cigar line. Yan currently serves as the brand ambassador for the line.

I strive to capture the essence of cigars and the people behind them in my work. The cigar you light is the culmination of the efforts of countless people and often represents generations of hard work and stories. To me, it's more than the cigar; it's the story behind it, the experience of enjoying an artisan's work, and the way a good cigar brings people together. In addition to my work with Halfwheel, I am the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training. I also serve as an announcer for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the Phoenix Mercury of the WNBA, and formerly the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also serve in several roles for Major League Baseball and do voiceover work. Prior to joining Halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, Cigar Snub magazine.
