Tarazona Cigars expands with new employees. A new Southwest Regional Manager and a Vice President of International Sales and Development. Justin Sandlin is the new regional manager for the Southwest of the United States, including Louisiana, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas.
Benigno “Ben” Rosario is joining Tarazona Cigars as VP of International Sales and Development. Currently, Tarazona and Caraballo cigars are available in the United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Vietnam, Venezuela, and the Middle East. But by appointing a dedicated VP of International Sales Tarazona hopes to open new markets soon.
It isn’t Rosario’s first experience in international cigar sales. He joins Tarazona after working with Karen Berger as Vice President of Global Sales and Vice President of the Don Kiki Superstore in Miami. A position he held since 2016.
Tarazona Cigars was born in 2002. The company is based in Miami, Florida. Currently, Tarazona employs seven people. The company is responsible for the Tarazona and Caraballo cigar brands. Tarazona Cigars does not have a factory but uses factories in Esteli, Nicaragua, and Tamboril, Dominican Republic.
Tarazona Cigars comes in two blends, Tarazona 305 and Guerrilla 305. 305 is the area code for Miami, where Tarazona Cigars is born and still located. There are four sizes available for each blend, but not the same vitolas for both blends. Caraballo cigars also come in two blends, 828 Claro and 828 Oscuro. Both Caraballo blends come in three sizes. Just as with the Tarazona blends, not all vitolas in Caraballo blends are the same.
