Established in 2014, Stallone Cigars were created and are blended by Tony Barrios. Barrios’ love for horses, imparted from his grandfather, inspired the name Stallone Cigars, stallion in Italian. After having gifted a young Barrios a stubborn, wild stallion, his grandfather assured him that, although some horses possess a will to not be tamed, he would ride many stallones in his life. The prediction came true, illustrated in the drive and passion Barrios has taken with him through life—whether stalones or cigars, his approach has been respecting strength, and finding beauty in the boldness.
Stallone Cigars are driven by a mission to offer each cigar smoker who enjoys one of their smokes a unique experience through superior ingredients and craftsmanship. The brand is based out of Estelí, Nicaragua, where they take full advantage of the unique qualities that the volcanic soil and climate have on the leaf grown in the region, slow fermenting and aging the tobacco to make for a refined filler. Wrapper leaves from around the globe are carefully selected to bring about a dynamic, flavorful blend.
