El Artista Cigars, best known for their Puro Ambar and Big Papi cigars, has announced a new brand for 2018, titled Cimarron.

The cigars are named after the Cimarron regions of the U.S., where Radhames “Ram” Rodriguez, President of El Artista USA, became familiar in his youth—

I went to college in upstate New York. During my first summer I took a trip to the world famous Rockies. I was impressed by the majesty of the area. What especially struck me was the Cimarron valley, mountains, and river. This is a transition zone between the mountains and the plains. It has remarkable beauty. I hiked around the area and took photos and I never forgot; that vision stuck with me for a decade. I told myself then I would build a cigar brand for Cimarron.Radhames Rodriguez, President of El Artista USA

Cimarron consists of three cigars: two intended for the U.S., and a third to be distributed in the European market. The U.S. blends consist of a Connecticut-style blend and a Mexican maduro. Each cigar uses a multi-country blend, including a “T-13 Hybrid” developed by Radhames Rodriguez. The cigars are then bound in a Dominican Negrito leaf that has been grown on El Artista’s own farms near Tabmboril.

Cimarron has been rolled in three sizes for each blend, with prices beginning at $7.20 SRP. The medium-plus-bodied blends will make their debut at next week’s IPCPR 2018 trade show in Las Vegas.
