Tampa, FL – November 2023 – The West Tampa Tobacco Company has proudly announced the launch of their new limited edition cigar, ‘Boliche Blvd.’, a masterful creation that echoes the deep-rooted history of cigar making in Tampa, Florida.
Tampa’s legacy as a hub for cigar manufacturing is vividly captured in this latest offering. Boliche Blvd. is not just a cigar; it’s a bold statement, embodying the spirit of Tampa’s storied past and its dynamic present.
Tampa’s diverse cultural palate, heavily influenced by Cuban, Spanish, and Italian heritages, has long been intertwined with the city’s cigar-making saga. This blend of cultures, particularly evident along Tampa’s Columbus Drive – fondly referred to as ‘Boliche Boulevard’ by locals – is a testament to the community that fueled the city’s early cigar factories.
Rick Rodriguez, master blender and co-owner of West Tampa Tobacco Company, shared his personal connection to this release: “This cigar is more than a product; it’s a narrative of Tampa’s history, a recognition of its vibrant culture, and a contribution to its promising future.” In crafting Boliche Blvd., Rodriguez collaborated with the renowned Oliva Tobacco Company, ensuring a creation steeped in tradition and excellence.
While the specific blend details remain a closely guarded secret, Rodriguez assures aficionados that the selection, sourced from Oliva’s extensive tobacco library, is extraordinary.
Commencing on November 27th, 2023, the first shipments of ‘Boliche Blvd.’ will be available to select retailers in the United States and a few international markets. This exclusive release is limited to only 500 boxes, each containing 50 Gigante (6X60) cigars, priced at $12.99 SRP (USD) per cigar.
Since its inception in 2022, West Tampa Tobacco Company has been committed to delivering premium cigars of unparalleled quality. Their products are now available at over 400 retailers across the U.S. and in 38 international countries.
