Odyssey made a splash when the brand burst onto the scene at IPCPR 2016. Since then, this line of budget-friendly cigars has won favor with cigar lovers who are drawn to the element of discovery.
New for this year is a Maduro version called Odyssey Maduro, which features a deeper, darker Nicaraguan Habano wrapper, over Odyssey’s signature Honduran binder and Nicaraguan filler.
Odyssey Maduro is entirely handmade with premium tobaccos. The blends deliver a medium-bodied smoking experience with subtle spiciness, earthiness and a clean finish.
Jen Moody, brand manager for Odyssey said, “Given its accessible price point, Odyssey Maduro is a no-brainer for the tenured cigar smoker who’s looking to change up his or her smoking repertoire with something new. Odyssey is one of the best cigar values on the market today and we’re sure that the new Maduro version will be a fast selling addition to the line.”
Odyssey Maduro is handmade in Nicaragua at Plasencia Cigars SA.
