The 2016 IPCPR Trade Show saw the debut of Cattle Baron Cigars, a line launched by Montana-rancher Bryan Mussard earlier this year. While it was a small booth at the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show, there was no doubt the big heart that represents of the State of Montana was very much present.

Front and center was the company’s self-title first release called Cattle Baron. It’s a cigar that Mussard teamed up with Phil Zanghi to create, and its produced at the De Los Reyes factory in the Dominican Republic.


Cattle Baron features a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper, a Dominican binder, and a combination of Dominican Seco and Nicaraguan Viso for the filler. The blend will be available in twenty count boxes in four sizes: Cowboy’s: 4 1/2 x 44; Stockyard’s: 5 x 52; Bull’s: 4 1/2 x 58; and Trail Boss’s: 6 x 54. From looking at the booth to the bands to the packaging, it’s very clear that there is a piece of Montana in each and every cigar.


The packaging of Cattle Baron Cigars reflects the big spirit of Montana combined with the craftsmanship of the cigars made in the Dominican Republic

Mustard also seemed quite a home at his first IPCPR Trade Show bringing a genuine enthusiasm to each visitor at the booth.

We caught up with Mussard just before the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show with an in-depth interview on Episode 187 of Stogie Geeks.
