Rodrigo Cigars are the brainchild of George Rodriguez, who set out on a quest to the Dominican Republic to learn more about his hobby of cigar smoking. On his journey he met William Ventura, a long-time master blender for Davidoff. Mr. Ventura taught George all he wanted to know about making cigars, and The Rodrigo was born. The brand began with the Habano Classico line, a medium-full bodied blend that delivers a complex flavor profile and a silky-smooth finish. A prime example of the quality offered by a boutique cigar, this line is designed as an elite smoking experience for the true aficionado. Next up to bat was the Boutique Blend, a full-bodied smoke that offers big flavor and big ring gauges. Most recently introduced is the powerhouse Fortaleza. This is a rich, strong cigar designed to offer experienced smokers a full-strength cigar that's chock full of titillating flavor. Already a favorite with the P&C staff, if you're looking for a strong cigar with impeccable construction and a delicious a tobacco blend, then Rodrigo is right for you.
