The El Pulpo by Artesano Del Tobacco Belicoso Grande was rated the #10 Cigar of 2023 by Cigar Aficionado!
Artesano Del Tobacco and AJ Fernandez have teamed up to create a very special cigar, the El Pulpo. Translating to ‘The Octopus’ in English, this cigar began in 2016 and it took AJ Fernandez several years to perfect the blend. The result is a lovely full-bodied stick with a Mexican San Andres wrapper, a Nicaraguan binder, and Nicaraguan fillers. The tobaccos featured in the El Pulpo come from prized tobacco grown on the infamous AJ Fernandez family farm. They are available in 10-count boxes and in 3 box-pressed sizes: Belicoso Grande (5 ¾” x 58), Robusto Grande (5” x 56), and Toro Grande (6” x 56).
"We wanted a blend that fits people palate the way an octopus fits in different shapes, spaces and becomes that shape, we wanted a blend that becomes hard for any smoker to put down once they light up like an octopus that doesn’t let go of its pray, once again AJ Fernandez has done an amazing job creating EL Pulpo Cigars. We couldn’t be more satisfied with the finished product and cannot wait for everyone to try it. As they say, ‘good things come to those who wait’ and this statement continues to ring true with the EL Pulpo Cigars. “- Billy & Gus of Artesano Del Tobacco.
