Matt Booth and Justin Andrews have collaborated on Los Statos Deluxe Maduro, the second iteration of the Los Statos Deluxe brand which underwent an extreme makeover in 2022. Crafted at STG’s HATSA factory in Danlí, Honduras, Los Statos Deluxe Maduro isa new, full-time collection featuring four sizes.

Matt Wilson, senior brand manager for Los Statos Deluxe said, “Los Statos Deluxe Maduro takes what we started with last year’s re-releaseof the brand and brings it to the next level. Calling on modern imagery and a blend that is equally provocative, we are continuing to evolve Los Statos to appeal to modern smokers and traditionalists alike. When you factor in the combined blending expertise of Matt Booth and Justin Andrews with the support of our Honduran team, we’re sure this cigar will be a big seller when it hits retail in August.” Matt Booth said,”Los Statos Deluxe is commanding the respect it has long since earned and with our new Maduro expression, we expect to introduce a new wave of enthusiasts to this great brand. I’m very proud of the blend and the packaging and the work Justin and I did to make this project everything it should be. We have grafted this brand franchise into the product landscape of our industry and we look forward to its evergreen presence.”

Los Statos Deluxe Maduro features a Nicaraguan binder, with Dominican Piloto Cubano, Honduran Jamastran and Honduran La Entrada filler tobacco and is crowned with a lustrous Connecticut-grown Broadleaf wrapper. The medium-plus-strength smoke transitions throughout the experience, offering notes of chocolate and coffee against the backdrop of a traditional Honduran profile. The line is being offered in four sizes to appeal to a range of smoking preferences. The cigars are presented in boxes containing 20 cigars.

  • Los Statos Deluxe Robusto (5″ x 50); SRP per cigar $8.79

  • Los Statos Deluxe Toro (6″ x 52); SRP per cigar $9.49

  • Los Statos Deluxe Churchill (7″ x 49); SRP per cigar $9.99

  • Los Statos Deluxe Gigante (6″ x 60); SRP per cigar $9.99

Los Statos Deluxe will ship to retailers on August 1.
