At the 2023 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show, Wildfire Cigar Company introduced a new regular production line of cigars called Artaios.
Wildfire Cigar Company is the company launched by Jeremy MacDonald, best known for his tenure at Caldwell Cigar Company. Artaios translates to “The Bear God” and is produced at Joya de Nicaragua. It consists of a Nicaraguan Habano Oscuro wrapper over Indonesian binder and all-Nicaraguan fillers. The cigars are being launched in three sizes: Corona Gorda (46 x 5 5/8, SRP $12.50), Robusto (50 x 5 1/4, SRP $13.00), and Toro (52 x 6 1/4, SRP $13.60).
Artaios had a soft-launch in Idaho at The Vault prior to PCA 2023.
