The Patina Cigars portfolio now has a maduro option.

Brand owner Mo Maali announced the release of the Patina Maduro on Monday, and while he isn’t discussing the blend, he did say that the line is being made at the Nicaragua American Cigars S.A. (NACSA) factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. The Patina Maduro is debuting in two sizes:

  • Patina Maduro Rustic (5 x 52) — $10.95 (Box of 16, $175.20)
  • Patina Maduro Oxidation (6 x 56) — $13.95 (Box of 16, $223.20)

Maali said more vitolas are in the works for a future release, though with factory closures and other disruptions to the cigar making process, he wasn’t able to specify when those other sizes will be released.

“With the addition of the Maduro to the Patina portfolio, we now have three dynamic offerings that cover all consumer profiles,” Maali said in a press release. “Similar to how we challenged existing perceptions with our Connecticut and Habano offerings respectively, the Patina Maduro challenges conventional expectations of a maduro cigar with a beautiful mix of balance, flavor, and strength.”

The two sizes are found in the company’s two existing core lines, the Patina Connecticut and Patina Habano. Both of those lines are offered in five vitolas, though the sizes are not the exact same between the two lines.

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 previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
