The 2023 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show was the second one for West Tampa Cigar Company. This venture started a little over a year ago and is a company owned by General Cigar Company alumni Rick Rodriguez and Gus Martinez. The eve of the Trade Show saw West Tampa announce another General Cigar alumni, Rami Dakko, would be its new Director of Sales. This was a move that continues to strengthen West Tampa’s presence in the market. On the product front, West Tampa Tobacco would go into this year’s Trade Show having just shipped its third regular production line, the West Tampa Tobacco Red.

The West Tampa Tobacco Company Red features a San Andres Mexican wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and fillers. The Mexican wrapper used on the Red is the same one used on the first release of West Tampa Tobacco Company’s limited edition Attic Series. Red will come in three sizes (Robusto, Toro, and Gigante). Each will be presented in 20-count boxes with pricing set from $8.99 to $10.99.
