Indianhead Cigars’ Rough Rider Sweets line is getting a new size and a new maduro version.
The original Rough Rider Sweets, which debuted in May 2016 and uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Dominican olor binder and Dominican piloto cubano and criollo 98 fillers, is adding a new size called Little Guys, which measures 4 1/2 inches long and has a 38 ring gauge. It is priced at $2.80 per cigar and offered in 50-count boxes, which are priced at $140, both before taxes.
It is the sixth size in the line, joining the lonsdale, robusto, toro, Churchill and gordo vitolas from the line’s debut.
The Rough Rider Sweets line is also expanding into a maduro version that uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper and binder, while the fillers are still Dominican piloto cubano and criollo 98 leaves. It is being offered in four sizes:
- Rough Rider Sweets Maduro Robusto (5 x 50) — $4.40 (Box of 25, $110)
- Rough Rider Sweets Maduro Toro (6 x 50) — $4.62 (Box of 25, $115.44)
- Rough Rider Sweets Maduro Churchill (7 x 50) — $4.78 (Box of 25, $119.60)
- Rough Rider Sweets Maduro Torpedo (6 1/2 x 52) — $4.88 (Box of 25, $122)
Both lines feature a sweetened cap, though neither are infused or otherwise flavored, which the company says allows the natural tobacco flavors to shine through. The Rough Rider Sweets Little Guys and the Rough Rider Sweets Maduro are produced at Tabacalera Palma in the Dominican Republic and have just begun shipping to retailers.
