West Tampa Red Gigante(6 x 60)



An industry veteran and alumnus of General Cigar, Rick Rodriguez left General to strike out on his own and start the West Tampa Tobacco Co. in 2022. Since then, he and his partner, Gus Martinez, have been busy building the brand and getting the cigars into the hands of smokers. The name is a reference to the cigar-making city Rodriguez’s grandparents emigrated to, but his cigars aren’t made in Tampa. They’re made in Nicaragua at the Garmendia Cigar Co. factory. West Tampa Red is the company’s third and strongest release. A bold core of chocolate is apparent from first puff to last, also showing layers of hickory, nutmeg, leather and a mocha finish.

Like its predecessors, White & Black, Red delivers a flavor bomb with enhanced body that is a perfect addition to the West Tampa line-up. “West Tampa Red gave me the opportunity to sit down with the factory and really focus on creating a blend that I enjoy,” said brand owner Rick Rodriguez. He would add, “Normally when I blend cigars, I don’t blend for what I like, I blend cigars for what my fans enjoy. Red will be a reflection of what I believe is the next piece to lay in the West Tampa puzzle, a full-bodied cigar that delivers the full flavor consumers have come to enjoy from West Tampa.”
