At the 2011 IPCPR, Altadis unveiled a new value-priced line.   This one is called “Diamondback” and it is blended by Omar Ortez.

Now when I think of the term “Diamondback”, the first word that comes to mind is the Major League Baseball team based in Phoenix, Arizona.  In this case, the name Diamondback comes from a card game that goes by that name. The offering is going to be a milder offering and the cigars will have an SRP ranging from $4.25 to $5.00.  

Let’s take a closer look at some of the particulars of the Diamondback cigar.
