TrueTobacco.com to Offer New Flavors of Hav-A-Tampa Cigars

Internet cigar shop TrueTobacco.com announces that it will now be carrying more flavors of the popular Hav-A-Tampa cigar brand.

Miami, FL (PRWEB) February 24, 2013

TrueTobacco.com, the Internet's go-to website for tobacco and tobacco accessories, announced today that it will soon be offering a new variety of flavors from the popular Hav-A-Tampa cigar brand – the world's top-selling wood-tipped cigar.

Hav-A-Tampa Cigars date all the way back to 1902, when a box company owner named Roland Wilson registered the name and began making deals to develop a cigar brand. By the early 1930's, the company had begun dominating the small cigar market with their “Tampa Jewels” and “Tampa Sweets” lines. By the end of the century, the company was selling almost 900 million cigars a year and was ranked as the second-largest cigar company in the United States.

TrueTobacco.com previously did not carry a large selection of Hav-A-Tampas, but with this announcement the website will now be offering various package sizes of Hav-A-Tampa Jewels Sweets in Original and Vanilla, as well as cartons of various Hav-A-Tampa Little Cigars.

According to TrueTobacco.com General Manager Nick Gordon, Hav-A-Tampa cigars are almost as much of a pleasure to carry as they are to smoke. “Hav-A-Tampas have this great history down here in Florida,” Gordon says. “They're absolutely legendary. In a lot of ways, they helped put this state on the map as far as machine cigar production. Everything used to be all about Cuba and traditional hand rolling, no one ever thought machine-rolled cigars would catch on.”

Hav-A-Tampas are best-known for their birchwood tips, which provided a consistent draw as well as a bit of extra flavor. Whether the latter was intended or not, it became a major part of the Hav-A-Tampa smoking experience, and cigar lovers around the world began buying the little cigars in droves.

“They're a mild cigar with a pleasant aroma,” says Gordon. “Most people – from aficionados to casual smokers - thoroughly enjoy them.”

The home base Hav-A-Tampa factory was closed in 2011, not long after the company was bought by Altadis USA – the makers of Montecristos, VegaFinas and Playboy Cigars. This has left many wondering if Hav-A-Tampas will have their chance to make a comeback.

“For now,” says Gordon. “These cigars are rare commodities. Smoke them while you got them.”

Today the cigars are a rare commodity as the future of their production remains uncertain.
