At the upcoming IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, Sindicato Cigars is planning on releasing its newest line, Cubico.
The new line is a regular production addition to the company’s offerings and uses an Ecuadorian Cubano wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. Jim Colucci, ceo of Sindicato, told halfwheel that the cigar is being offered in four sizes:
- Cubico Corona (5 1/2 x 46) — $7.95 (Boxes of 20, $159)
- Cubico Robusto (5 x 54) — $8.25 (Boxes of 20, $165)
- Cubico Toro (6 x 54) — $8.75 (Boxes of 20, $175)
- Cubico Gran Toro (6 x 60) — $8.95 (Boxes of 20, $179)
It is made at the Nicaragua American Cigars S.A. (NACSA) factory in Estelí, Nicaragua and expected to begin shipping to retailers in late November 2019, though Colucci noted it could be pushed back into January 2019.
Sindicato Cigars was founded in 2013 by a group of cigar and tobacco retailers, with former Altadis USA Executive vp of sales & marketing Jim Colucci serving as president/ceo of the company. The company produces the eponymous Sindicato line, as well as the Particulares, Hex, Casa Bella, Maniac and Affinity lines, and several limited edition projects.
