There are three types of ROXOR:

Pure Nicaraguan – filler, binder, wrapper

The Roxor Story:

The goal in establishing Perseo Cigar Co. was to create a unique blend of tobacco, combine that unique blend with high quality construction to create a new brand of cigars which are complex and have a delightful taste which is consistent and priced so that everyone can afford to indulge in smoking ROXOR daily.

We decided to go to Estelli, Nicaragua to find a manufacturer and blend. After months of experimentation with blends, soliciting opinions on variations in blends, tasting and testing and more tasting we reached our goal.

Naming the cigar: We assembled a legal team for trademark, copyright, and legal protection for the brand. We searched and searched for a name. We read history books, researched at the library, talked to anyone who would listen and brainstormed. We envisioned a Spanish or Cuban nobleman. Every name we came up with was unavailable. The mega tobacco companies had reserved and protected every name imaginable. We decided to abandon the traditional approach to our brand name and traditional packaging and develop a New, Unique Name, Label, and Packaging. This was a calculated risk but worth it.

ROXOR was born. ROXOR is a polynome which means it is pronounced and spelled the same forward and backward.
