What is Patina?
The definition of Patina is, "An oxidation process that over time produces a green film over bronze or copper." Patina Cigars hit the market in 2015 after Mo, the owner of Patina Cigars was working as a manager at a Chicago area cigar lounge learning the ins and outs of the cigar business. Mo had told us when he was producing the cigars he was still working at the lounge. It was not until 2017 that Patina Cigars hit the national market. Patina Cigars are currently made in Esteli, Nicaragua American SA , a two hour vacation according to Mo, a cost effective psychiatric session as he explains on their website. Mo wants you to experience a cigar when something good is happening, a celebration of life, goals or achievements. We met Mo many years ago and became friends right away, we have always supported the Patina Cigars brand even before Frontline Cigars was established. Mo first started at the Mombacho factory and then moving on a few years back to American SA in Esteli, Nicaragua. There is speculation as to why Patina Cigars changed factories but out of respect we did not feel it was necessary to search for those answers.
Anyone that has a passion for cigars, including those that have their own it was his goal to make his cigar better than before. Knowing Mo for such a long time you can tell he is very passionate and committed to giving the consumer a top notch smoking experience. Since then, Patina Cigars have taken off across the United States growing online, with a presence here at Frontlinecigars.com until we are no longer in operation. As friends of Mo, we always told him Patina Cigars will always have a spot at frontlinecigars.com no matter what. It's not about what you think about a cigar, how many cigars you have in your inventory, as a business its about helping friends succeed and making the most of your time here on this Earth.
