Sinistro is giving its newest line, KILO, a soft launch today before it plans on releasing it on a widespread basis in the next year or two.

The line uses a Dominican broadleaf wrapper, a Dominican piloto cubano binder, and a filler made up of Dominican piloto cubano ligero, Pennsylvania broadleaf, ad Dominican olor. It is being made by Tabacalera El Artista in the Dominican Republic.

The Sinistro KILO is being offered in two sizes:

  • Sinistro KILO Robusto (5 x 52) — $9.25 (Bundle of 10, $92.50)
  • Sinistro KILO Toro (6 x 50) — $9.50 (Bundle of 10, $95)

It is being offered in 10-count bundles for its debut, with 200 bundles of each size produced for a total of 2,000 cigars per size and 4,000 total cigars for its debut. It is being released through Omertà Cigar Co. in Oklahoma as well as PuroCigarHouse.com, Omertà’s online store.

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 MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
