May 1, 2014 (Boca Raton, Fla.) — Sindicato Cigars strives to bring the best together in its journey to create greatness. The company continually searches for perfect tobaccos from the finest farms blended by the best master blenders in the business. In doing so, Sindicato is pleased to announce its much anticipated and new flagship cigar, the Sindicato.


Sindicato is a square-pressed Nicaraguan Puro crafted with a limited, shade-grown Corojo wrapper from Eduardo Fernandez in Jalapa, Nicaragua. This beautiful wrapper is grown under shade to insure the leaf’s consistent appearance. Master blender Arsenio Ramos has combined this unique wrapper with a rich, bold Estelí double leaf binder, which encompasses a blend of strong, flavorful Jalapa and Estelí leaves and delivers a medium-full strength cigar with exquisite taste.

Jim Colucci, President and CEO of Sindicato, says, “We’re extremely excited about this beautiful cigar. We’re using special tobaccos from Eduardo Fernandez’s farms and Arsenio Ramos has crafted a fantastic blend. We truly believe that we are bringing the best together to create something great.”

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