May 21, 2012 (Springfield, MO) — Christian and Jessica Hutson of Twisted Cigars are excited to announce the pending release of Torcido cigars. Torcido is a unique, medium to full bodied cigar created in the Dominican Republic at the MATASA factory.
The process started with just an idea years ago when Christian fell in love with the culture of cigars and the people who create them. “Torcido” is a testament to the history and abilities of the Torcidors that have been rolling cigars for generations. The Quesada family was instrumental in taking that dream and a description of a cigar that didn’t exist and making it a reality.
“I could tell you what I think this cigar tastes like,” Christian says. “However, I would prefer you smoke it yourself and tell me what you find in it. We worked hard to create a well balanced blend that stood up to the strong foods and drinks we prefer.”
‘”We wrote a flavor profile first and then tested and tweaked different blends for months,” states Jessica. “After discovering the unique wrapper tobacco, the remainder of the blend was created to work around this amazing wrapper.”
