East Park Cigars Debuts With Three Lines

January 28, 2022 By Matthew Tabacco

 

 

In 2020, Emmanuel Peña, an audacious beverage industry titan and Claudio Sanchez, a thriving viral marketing and e-commerce mogul joined forces to create East Park Cigars. Inspired by their common roots and passions, they travelled off beaten paths in search of the right blend to pair with their favorite spirits. Little did they know that the journey would take them back to their ancestral home, Santiago, Dominican Republic. It was there they would discover Cibao valley’s rich soil, which infused by the waters of the Yaque river and blessed with almost perfect microclimate conditions, yields some of the best tobacco in the world.

Today, East Park Cigars debuts three inaugural blends: El Borbón, El Escocés, and El Cognac. Blended by Henderson Ventura and produced at Tabacalera William Ventura in Tamboril, Dominican Republic, these blends represent a dynamic yet thoughtful approach that yields cigars perfectly conditioned for pairing with bourbon, scotch, and cognac.

“To develop these three inaugural concepts,” Sanchez, CEO and Co-Founder explains, “the team developed each blend by experimenting with the phenolic compounds in the tobacco leaves. Each component of the cigar is meticulously architected to enhance the smoking experience while pairing with your favourite spirit. We can’t wait to bring these new experiences to this dynamic industry.”

Each blend is available in a single 5 ½ ” x 52 robusto size, packaged in 10 count boxes with an MSRP of $15 per cigar. 

 Emmanuel Peña, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer said of the project, “with the masterful skills of Henderson Ventura, the proven commitment to quality of Tabacalera William Ventura, and the combined experience of our team and guidance of Adrian Acosta of The Cigar Culture, we’re confident that we will deliver fresh and disruptive concepts that enhance the cigar smoking experience for the new generation of smokers.”
