The West Tampa Tobacco Company is adding to its core line-up, which launched last year with the White and Black lines, with the Red, available in a 5 x 50 Robusto ($8.99), a 6 x 52 Toro ($9.99) and a 6 x 60 Gigante ($10.99).
The West Tampa Tobacco Company Red comes in 20-count boxes and features a Mexican San Andreas wrapper with Nicaraguan binder and filler. Shipping begins in May for U.S. and international markets.
“West Tampa Red gave me the opportunity to sit down with the factory and really focus on creating a blend that I enjoy,” Rick Rodriguez, master blender and co-owner of West Tampa, said in a press release. “Normally when I blend cigars, I don’t blend for what I like, I blend cigars for what my fans enjoy. Red will be a reflection of what I believe is the next piece to lay in the West Tampa puzzle, a full-bodied cigar that delivers the full flavor consumers have come to enjoy from West Tampa.”
