Rick Rodriguez’s absence from the cigar industry won’t be a long one, if really one at all, as he has announced the launch of West Tampa Tobacco Co., which will reportedly have its first cigars on store shelves in the coming weeks.

Making the announcement via Cigar Aficionado, Rodriguez said that the company will launch with two cigars called Black and White, which are expected out by the end of May or early June. The White uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper with a Nicaraguan binder and filler, while the Black also uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper but from a higher priming to give it a darker color and stronger flavor. Underneath that is a Nicaraguan binder from the volcanic island of Ometepe, while the fillers come from Nicaragua’s Condega and Estelí regions.

Both cigars are made at the Garmendia Cigar Co. factory in Estelí and will be offered in three sizes:

West Tampa Tobacco Co. Black/White Robusto (5 x 50) — $8.99 (Box of 20, $179.80)

West Tampa Tobacco Co. Black/White Toro (6 x 52) — $9.99 (Box of 20, $199.80) REVIEWED TODAY

West Tampa Tobacco Co. Black/White Gigante (6 x 60) — $10.99 (Box of 20, $219.80)

Rodriguez is best known for his time with General Cigar Co., where he was best known for his roles of blender and ambassador for the CAO brand. He left the company at the end of April, and has partnered with a fellow former employee of General Cigar Co., Gus Martinez, who will serve as the new company’s president.
