NEW STICK ALERT:
West Tampa Tobacco Company Boliche is a Cuban pot roast—a hearty dish of eye round beef stuffed with ham and often served with a side of rice. It isn’t fancy, but it’s common to Cuba’s culinary tradition. Rick Rodriguez, owner of West Tampa Tobacco, sees boliche as emblematic of Tampa’s Cuban culture, which is why he chose to name a cigar after the dish. He isn’t disclosing any of the blend details other than confirming that the tobacco was purchased from the Tampa-based Oliva Tobacco Co., prolific growers of premium leaf.
