There will be another leaf-wrapped cigar coming to your nearest humidor, as The Oscar Maduro is slated to be released at the upcoming IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.

This new line extension replaces the original’s Ecuadorian habano wrapper with a Mexican maduro leaf from the San Andrés region, while keeping the Honduran binder and Honduran and Nicaraguan filler.

It comes in the same three sizes as the original, and again packed in 11-count boxes that resemble cigar molds:

  • The Oscar Maduro Robusto (5 x 50) — $11 (Box of 11, $121)
  • The Oscar Maduro Toro (6 x 52) — $12 (Box of 11, $132)
  • The Oscar Maduro 6 x 60 (6 x 60) — $13 (Box of 11, $143)

All of the cigars are made at Valladares’ factory in Danlí, Honduras and distributed by Oscar Valladares & Co.

The 2017 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show runs from July 11 – 14 in Las Vegas, Nev.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
