Patriarch is a cigar idea I’ve had for as long as I can remember. Its name was chosen to honor the men in my family that have led by example and paved the way for future generations. Men who are filled with an entrepreneurial spirit, strong work ethic, and a desire to enjoy what they do.

The project began in the summer of 2020 on a trip to visit Darren Cioffe at his home in Nashville for lunch and inevitably a few cigars. His porch took me back to my Great Uncle’s house in South Florida where he’d enjoy cigars and talk business. As a little kid I would watch and think how cool it would be to be like that when I was older. 

Things came full circle as I found myself doing just that. Talking with Darren, looking at his incredible collection of cigar art, smoking cigars, and learning about new tobaccos he was working with at KBF. It became clear in that moment that he was the one to help me make Patriarch a reality. 

We started blending, and very shortly after we landed on the timeless blend you will be lighting up shortly. This stick features a chocolatey Catui wrapper and is capped with one of the most stunning pigtails I’ve ever seen, which only adds to the uniqueness of this short Churchill. It’s rich, sweet, and balanced. The cigar is Cubanesque in many ways but also lets the Dominican tobaccos shine. There was a returning sticky sweetness every time I smoked this blend, and after a few more attempts, I finally realized what the tasting note reminded me of: MILK DUDS. 

The short Churchill is a size I watched the patriarchs in my life smoke often, so from the start this was the size with which everything would be blended. What a knockout.

Enjoy this one slowly with someone you look up to or someone who has led the way for you. 

To my Dad, Jidu, and Uncles — this one’s for you.
