Ozgener Family Cigars to Introduce ‘Aramas’ Brand at TAA Trade Show

March 25, 2023 By Matthew Tabacco



Ozgener Family Cigars (OFC) has announced that it will debut it’s sophomore release, “Aramas’ at the upcoming Tobacconists Association of America (TAA) Trade Show, to be held March 26-30 at Casa de Campo, Dominican Republic.

The Aramas name was inspired by Mt. Ararat in Armenia, where it is also referred to as “Masis”. The brand name is a hybrid of the two names. OFC Aramas follows up the widely acclaimed “Bosphorus’ brand, which has garnered not only a strong following, but high ratings and accolades.

“Aramas is an homage to my father, Cano Ozgener, his penchant for hard work, and his value for the relationships he cultivated in his lifetime.” said OFC founder Tim Ozgener. “We worked with Ernesto (Perez-Carrillo) on Aramas to develop a dense, complex, and rich blend, that also retained impeccable balance.” I’m extremely excited with the final product and looking forward to debuting Aramas at the TAA show next week.”

OFC Aramas is comprised of filler tobaccos from Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, and Connecticut Broadleaf, an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder, and is finished with a Mexican San Andreas wrapper. The Aramas line consists of four sizes: (5 x 52), (5 1/2 x 55), (6 x 60), and (6 1/4 x 54 torpedo) and carries an MSRP of $12.75 – $15.75. Aramas is manufactured at Tabacalera La Alianza S.A. and will begin shipping in April.
