The Black Warrior pays homage to the city of Tuscaloosa. Chief Tuskaloosa was a paramount chief of a Mississippian chiefdom in what is now the U.S. state of Alabama. His people were possibly ancestors to the several southern Native American confederacies (the Choctaw and Creek peoples) who later emerged in the region. The modern city of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, is named for him. They said that Chief Tuskaloosa stood a foot taller than all the Spaniards. Chief Tuskaloosa’s name means Black Warrior. Black Warrior Cigars were released in October 2013 on Reagan’s birthday. The Black Warrior comes in two sizes, Robusto (5.5×50) and a Box Press Torpedo (6.5×52). The Torpedo is box pressed and called the Reagan, since it is his favorite cigar. It would eventually go on to be rated a 91 on Cigar Coop, and has become a local favorite.
