Sindicato Cigars long-planned flagship maduro cigar will debut this July. The Sindicato Maduro, a project in the works for over a year, is made by Casa Fernández/Tabacalera Tropical at the company’s TABSA factory in Estelí, Nicaragua, the same place the regular Sindicato is produced at. A Mexican marrón wrapper takes over for the shade grown Nicaraguan wrapper found on the original Sindicato.
“We’ve had such an overwhelming response from consumers about our new flagship cigar,” said Jim Colucci, ceo of Sindicato Cigars, in a press release. “The Sindicato, that we had to back it up with a maduro. The flavors in this cigar are extremely amazing and we’re excited that Arsenio (Ramos) and Eduardo (Fernández) continue to outdo themselves.”
The cigar uses fillers from the Estelí and Jalapa regions of Nicaragua, as well as a double binder with Estelí tobaccos. It’s offered in four sizes: Robusto (5 x 54, $11.50), Toro (6 x 54, $11.95), Churchill (7 x 52) and Magnum (6 x 60, $13.95). Like the Sindicato cigar, it will be sold in 16-count boxes.
Sindicato Cigars launched in 2013, a company formed by a collection of retailers. This is the sixth line from the company joining the eponymous Sindicato, Affinity, Casa Bella, Casa Bella Maduro and Hex.
The Sindicato Maduro will debut at the 2014 IPCPR convention and trade show, which begins July 19 in Las Vegas, Nev.
