(TAMBORIL, DO) – El Artista Cigars announces the launch of a new line extension of the wildly popular Buffalo TEN series. “This flagship product line has performed so well,” says Radhames ‘Ram’ Rodriguez, President of El Artista Cigars, “we just had to bring out one more blend, this time in a Connecticut grown in our farms in Ecuador.”
With a suggested retail price of $5.00 per cigar, the new blend complements the original Maduro and last year’s release Natural, “Buffalo TEN truly demonstrates the strengths of El Artista,” says Kevin Newman, Director of Sales & Marketing, “the factory team worked with us to source some of the best tobaccos available and integrate a few factory-exclusives for a phenomenal blend at an incredible price”.
Buffalo TEN Connecticut is available in one size, a soft box pressed 6×50 Toro, and El Artista offers it in two retail packages, as an attractive 5-Pack ($22.50 MSRP) in a wooden retail shelf display that holds five 5-packs or as a single-stick purchase ($5.00 MSRP) from a 40-ct retail bundle tray. “Over the last two years Retailers have embraced Buffalo TEN in terms of packaging options and a great price point; Consumers the world over have told us to keep making more and we feel the Connecticut continues the theme of quality and value both consumers and the brick & mortar retailer have come to know and love,” states Ram.
Buffalo TEN Connecticut is a complex blend composed of five different tobaccos from across Central & South America and The Caribbean. Buffalo TEN Connecticut features a smooth and sweet Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper from El Artista’s own farms and a rich Cameroon binder. The filler blend is sourced from Nicaragua, and the company’s own farms in the Dominican Republic.
Buffalo TEN Connecticut first went on sale in Norway distributed by Nordic Cigars at the beginning of June and will be available for sale to retailers in North America at the 88th Annual PCA Trade Show in Las Vegas starting July 10, 2021 and will ship to retailers the first week of August.
