El Artista Cigars has announced the release of Buffalo TEN Natural, a cigar that features the company’s own Ecuadorian-grown Habano wrapper, an Indonesian Sumatra binder, and a proprietary blend of Nicaraguan, Dominican and USA filler tobaccos. The cigar will be offered in just one size–a 6 x 50 soft box-pressed Toro as a 5-pack for $22.50 or as a single cigar for just $5 per cigar.

“The outstanding sales performance and consumer response of the original Buffalo TEN Maduro meant we had to do a strong follow up. The process was complicated because we wanted a cigar that felt like a Buffalo TEN but was a new smoking experience and not just a clone in a different wrapper,” commented Sam Rodriguez, president of El Artista Cigars.

El Artista Cigars | Fugly ClaroAdditionally, El Artista is announcing the upcoming release of the Fugly Claro, a new blend that embraces El Artista’s Fugly concept of the freehand cowboy-style cigar and features the company’s own Dominican Corojo Claro wrapper, no binder, and a combination of strong long-leaf ligero tobaccos from the U.S. and the Dominican Republic.

“The break-out success of Fugly Cheroots caught everyone by surprise in 2019 when the brand exceeded sales forecasts and 2020 same-store sales were utterly impressive. We had no clue this strong and frankly ugly hand-rolled cheroot would take the US by storm, but here we are,” Says Kevin Newman. “For the follow-up Fugly we wanted to keep the cowboy-style theme but offer it in a whole new way.”

Fugly Claro will be priced at just $3 per cigar. Both Fugly Claro and Buffalo TEN Natural will be available in U.S. retailers beginning Sept. 23, 2020.
