The Hex will be one of three cigar blends launched at the 2013 IPCPR Trade Show being launched by the Sindicato Cigar Group. The Hex offers an Nicaraguan-made cigar into their line of cigars.
Sindicato describes the blend as “A unique and special cigar made from aged rare tobaccos carefully selected and blended in Condega, Nicaragua. The wrapper is a rich, dark Ecuadorian Habano wrapper crafted by the finest torcedors to create an unforgettable smoking experience.“
Sindicato Cigar Group was officially launched in March, 2013. The company is being started by a group of 45 strong cigar retailers who are joining together to entire the manufacturing side of the business. Industry veteran Jim Colucci serves as their President and CEO. In their press release, the company said they are going to rely on the retailers’ strong connection to the consumer: In their initial press release they said: “Consumers can trust that the collaboration of the country’s top cigar minds, who have listened to your words day in and day out, will create top quality brands based on the knowledge that those same consumers have provided.”
The cigars are made by Alex Ortez, the brother of Omar Ortez in Condega, Nicaragua.
