Frontline Cigars released its Blue Line Cigar in 2019 out of a small factory in the Domnican Republic. The Blue Line Cigar gained a lot of attraction by the law enforcement community and supporters of Frontline Cigars. It wasn't until late in 2020 when our friend and owner of Don Rafa Cigars Rafael Jaca bought a factory in Esteli, Nicaragua called Tabacalera La Familia at which time we switched our focus to that factory. First we decided to keep the Blue Line Cigar with the Dominican factory until we were ready to change the origin to Nicaragua. We came out with the Defender Cigar in early 2021 produced in Esteli, Nicaragua at Tabacalera La Familia. The inital response of the Defender Cigar from customers was outstanding. We received a 91 rating from Stogie Press and started to sell more and more of the Defender Cigar which is still offered in four vitolas (sizes), corona, robusto, toro and lonsdale. We also recently recieved an 88 rating of the Defender Cigar from Cigar Coop which was outstanding. Thank you to Jimmie and Coop for taking the time to review our cigars.

We were so happy with the outcome of the Defender Cigar that it was time to work on the remake of Blue Line Cigar. We wanted the cigar to have similar tasting notes but offering a more premium cigar look and experience. The release of the new Blue Line Cigar came in the summer of 2021 and was an immediate success. We produced two vitolas like the Dominican Blue Line Cigar in robusto and toro. The Blue Line Cigar was a surprise to all because of the new look, blend and overall smoking experience. Although the Blue Line Cigar has not been reviewed since moving to the new factory we do anticipate putting it in the right hands to make that possible. The new look of the Blue Line and Defender Cigar bands are because of Jack Bridson of Frontline Cigars. He wanted to make the front of the band resemble our logo with the different colors of each line represented around the shield in front and on the back with the name of the cigar with Frontline Cigars present as well.
