Tabacalera El Artista is prepared to launch a new value-priced brand called Buffalo Ten. The new cigar will come in only one size: a 6 inch by 50 ring gauge Toro, and will retail for a mere $4.50.
Buffalo Ten uses six tobaccos in its blend: a dark, Mexican San Andrés wrapper, Dominican Negrito binder and a filler mix of leaf grown in the United States, Colombia and the Dominican Republic. The filler includes a tobacco that El Artista grew itself. The company, which is based in the Dominican Republic, is calling the leaf Domininican T-13 Hybrid.
The new brand will come in five-packs, which will retail for $22.50 per pack. The cigars are being rolled at Tabacalera El Artista’s factory in Tamboril, Dominican Republic.
