After an extended delay, the Sindicato Artista is starting to ship to retailers.
The line, which was shown off at last summer’s PCA Convention & Trade Show, uses an Ecuadorian corojo wrapper, Ecuadorian Sumatra binder, and a filler that contains Dominican olor and criollo leaves along with broadleaf of undisclosed origins.
“After working closely with Ram (Rodriguez) on a few projects, we’ve come to understand that this young man has not only a great palate, but also access to a wide array of tobaccos from their farms in Ecuador and Dominican Republic as well as their partners all over the world,” said Jim Colucci, ceo and president of Sindicato Cigars, via a press release. “We’re proud to introduce this outstanding cigar and can’t wait to hear the reactions of our valuable consumers.”
It is being offered in two sizes:
- Sindicato Artista Robusto (5 x 52) — $8.25 (Box of 20, $165)
- Sindicato Artista Toro (6 x 54) — $8.75 (Box of 20, $175)
The Sindicato Artista had originally been announced as a Fall 2021 release, though pandemic-related issues delayed the line’s production and release. Sindicato Cigars is distributed by Gurkha Cigar Co.
