West Tampa Announces “Red” Line

February 27, 2023 By Matthew Tabacco



Like its predecessors, White and Black, Red delivers a flavor bomb with enhanced body that is a perfect addition to the West Tampa line-up. From mild to full bodied, creamy to spicy, West Tampa now offers something for everyone.

Rick Rodriguez, master blender and co-owner, is especially excited about this release. “West Tampa Red gave me the opportunity to sit down with the factory and really focus on creating a blend that I enjoy.”

“Normally when I blend cigars, I don’t blend for what I like, I blend cigars for what my fans enjoy. Red will be a reflection of what I believe is the next piece to lay in the West Tampa puzzle, a full-bodied cigar that delivers the full flavor consumers have come to enjoy from West Tampa.”

Rick chose to work once again with the Mexican San Andreas wrapper that he used for his inaugural Attic Series release. The wrapper is where the similarities end. Changes he has made in the all-Nicaraguan binder and filler will deliver an unforgettable smoke. First shipments of West Tampa Tobacco Company Red will begin in May and will be available both in the US and international markets.

West Tampa Tobacco Company Red will be available in three sizes, twenty cigars per box and will be line priced with Black and White:

  • Robusto (5 x 50)- $8.99

  • Toro (6 x 52)- $9.99

  • Gigante (6 x 60)- $10.99

Founded in 2022, West Tampa Tobacco Company is dedicated to the business of producing, marketing and distributing the finest premium-branded cigars around the world. West Tampa Tobacco Company cigars can now be found in over 300 retailers across the US and 25 International countries and growing. For more information about West Tampa Tobacco Company please visit
