If you visited the Patoro Cigars booth at the 2015 IPCPR Trade Show, you saw a cigar called Patoro Brasil – a Brazilian wrapped cigar. At the time that particular cigar was a European offering and not available in the U.S. market. At the 2016 Trade Show, the Patoro Brasil made a return, but this time it was being offered to U.S. retailers.
As the name indicates, Patoro Brasil features a Brazilian Cubra wrapper over Dominican binder and filler. The cigar is offered in three sizes and is packaged in 20 count boxes.
Patoro Cigars was founded by Patrick Martin. Last year, Dr. Pablo Schneider, the grandson of Dr. Ernst Schenider (best known for his involvement with Oettinger’s acquisition of Davidoff) joined the company to help with the U.S. venture. The company produces its cigars in the Dominican Republic at the De Los Reyes factory and the brand is distributed in the U.S. by CLE Cigar Company.
