May 23. 2013 (Wesley Chapel, Fla.) — Rolando Reyes Jr. has responded to the public’s demand for Cameroon blends with the introduction of his latest flavorful creation, the White Mutineer. This is the first foray into producing a Cameroon line for the cigar smoking by public by Reyes or his father, the late Rolando Reyes Senior. A medium to full body smoke, the White Mutineer will be available in four sizes (a 6.5 x 60 Corona Gorda, a 6 x 60 Grande, a 5 x 50 Robusto, and a 6 x 54 Toro) in 20 count boxes. The blend consists of Dominican, Brazilian, and Nicaraguan tobaccos wrapped with Cameroon. The cigars are manufactured in Esteli, Nicaragua. The initial public debut will be at the IPCPR Convention in Las Vegas this summer. Come by Booths #2534-2535 to try the newest in the Mutineer line.

Father and Son Cigars will be the exclusive U.S. and worldwide distributor of the entire Mutineer line. Reyes Jr. will be marketing the entire Mutineer line (Red, Black, and White), the Rolando Reyes Limited Edition line, the Father and Son bundled cigar (produced in Honduras), and the Candy Stripe bundles (produced by Reyes Jr. in Nicaragua). All Father and Son lines will be marketed exclusively through brick and mortar tobacconists nationwide.

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.
