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.

Patina Maduro – New Sizes

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.

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.
