Sinistro Cigars is giving its newest release, The Barbarian, a limited release this month ahead of a full production release in 2022.

The cigar uses a Dominican maduro wrapper, African Cameroon binder, and a ligero-forward blend, using that priming from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Pennsylvania, as well as Nicaraguan seco. It is being offered in two sizes:

  • The Last Barbarian Robusto (5 x 52) — $10 (Bundles of 10, $100)
  • The Last Barbarian Toro (6 x 50) — $12 (Bundles of 10, $120)

The cigars are being made at Tabacalera El Artista in the Dominican Republic, which Sinistro had previously worked with for part of its La Fabrica Series. The first batch is limited to 4,000 cigars for each size and will be available to all Sinistro retailers, with shipping to begin near the end of June.

A full release is planned for 2022, tentatively towards the middle part of the year. When that happens, the cigars will shift out of bundles and into a more traditional box format.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
