T13 – A whole new world
Over six decades ago, the Rodriguez family got their start in the cigar industry in the Cibao region of the Dominican Republic. Led today by Radhames “Ram” Rodriguez, this family business has grown into a powerhouse in a manner of years – with over 1,800 acres and an annual production of over 12 million cigars a year, it’s safe to say El Artista has arrived. Today, we celebrate their newest milestone in tobacco achievement: the release of Cimarron.
Cimarron isn’t just any line of cigars. Instead, they’re the first blends to feature T13, a hybrid leaf developed by Ram Rodriguez himself that most closely resembles San VincenteFor the Connecticut version, Ram pairs an Ecuador Connecticut leaf overtop Dominican Negrito binder and a tri-country long-filler blend of Dominican, Colombian, and US tobaccos. Notching in at a mellow to medium body, Cimarron Connecticut is a unique spicy-sweet mixture with a naturally creamy core, and cedar-driven finish.
