If you’ve been following some of the booth posts lately on halfwheel, you might have heard the name Sutliff Tobacco, and it’s for good reason. The company that has largely been known for its pipe tobacco has become a distributor of premium cigars lately and is hosting nearly a dozen companies in its booth at the 2021 PCA Convention & Trade Show this year.
One of those was Patina Cigars, who had some new sizes of its Maduro line on offer. I say on offer because they weren’t on display, as the cigars that were supposed to be on display at the show were still held up in customs, so Mo Maali showed off his existing lines instead.
When Mo Maali introduced the Patina Maduro in March 2020, it was in just two sizes but with a promise that more were on the way. Now, three new sizes are being added to the line: the Precipitation, a short robusto; the Copper, a corona gorda; and the Bronze, a toro. Maali still isn’t disclosing anything about the blend’s makeup, but the line is still made at NACSA in Estelí, Nicaragua.
