Toraño Links With Sam Leccia as well as Graycliff
Posted: June 14, 2011
The Toraños have been active lately. Toraño Family Cigar Co., the owners of the Toraño cigar brands and a company with a long, storied legacy in the premium cigar business, has taken on distribution of a second boutique cigar brand. Only weeks after picking up distribution of Graycliff cigars, Toraño announced today that it would distribute the cigars from the new Sam Leccia Cigar Co.
Charlie Toraño, president of Toraño, called Leccia “one of the industry’s most creative minds.” Leccia was previously involved with Oliva Cigar Co. and was partially responsible for such smokes as NUb and Cain.
News of Leccia opening his own cigar company, with a new smoke called Debut, was announced on CigarAficionado.com on May 26.
Graycliff cigars are made in Nassau, the Bahamas.
Toraño was once distributed by C.A.O. International Inc., prior to C.A.O. being consolidated with General Cigar Co. Toraño took back distribution of its cigars and changed its name last year, and soon after launched Master by Carlos Toraño and Single Region Serie Jalapa.
