Phil Zanghi’s Debonaire Cigars has added two vitolas to its Debonaire line of cigars. These extensions will include a panatela offering called Sagita as well as a Toro-sized offering. These line extensions were showcased at the 2013 IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas.
Debonaire Cigars was launched in 2012. The cigars are made at Augusto Reyes’ Augusto Reyes’s Corporacion Cigar Export factory. The cigar was launched also with a premium Rum made by the company. Debonaire Cigars is positioned as an “ultra-premium” cigar.
Zanghi is best known for being a founder of Indian Tabac, the company which became Rocky Patel Premium Cigars. After splitting with Patel, Zanghi focused on pipes and machine made cigars before deciding to get back into the premium cigar business.
