Oscar Valladares Adding Wild Hunter at IPCPR 2019


You might want to be careful where you leave your box of Oscar Valladares’ newest cigar line, not just because of the cigars inside, but because he’s camouflaging them. At the upcoming IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, the Honduran cigar maker will roll out a new line called Wild Hunter, a pair of Honduran puros that gets its inspiration from heading out into the woods on a hunt.

The first blend uses a natural wrapper from Honduras’ Copan region while the second blend uses a dark oscuro leaf, also from Copan. The binder and filler of both cigars come from Honduras, in particular from Valladares’ own farm, La Entrada a Copan and El Paraiso, to give consumers what the company calls the full experience of Honduran flavor.

Both cigars are regular production, offered in a 6 x 52 toro vitola that is priced at $9.50 per cigar and offered in 20-count boxes. The line will begin shipping during the first week of July.

About the author

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 MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
