2022 marks the tenth anniversary of Oscar Valladares Tobacco & Co. Over the years, Oscar has grown into a powerhouse. Today Oscar has a factory, farms, and a distribution company. The central theme for Oscar Valladares Tobacco & Compay is a special 10th anniversary cigar – which will be the company’s most ultra-premium offering to date. At the same time, Oscar Valladares Tobacco & Company also has a value cigar called the Raw Dog. One thing that has been a common theme with Oscar Valladares is he isn’t afraid to go against the grain and try something different. With the Raw Dog, it’s a cigar that is only rolled with binder and filler tobaccos.

The Oscar Valladares 10th Anniversary features a Mexican San Andres wrapper over a Honduran binder and Nicaraguan filler. The blend utilizes tobaccos that have been aging for five years. The cigar will be offered in three sizes: Toro, 6 x 60, and Salomon. Pricing ranges from $18.00 to $23.00. Each of the sizes will be presented in ten-count boxes. According to Oscar Valladares, this will be an annual limited production release.

As for the Raw Dog, it’s a $6.00 offering featuring all Honduran tobaccos and packaged in a 50-count cabinet box. It comes in one size – a 5 x 60 parejo.
