Cigar Reveal #219
When Ozgener Family Cigars launched at the 2022 PCA Convention & Trade Show, it marked Tim Ozgener's comeback to the cigar scene after 13 years. Before that, he was the president of CAO, a company his dad founded in 1977. In 2007, they sold CAO to a different Scandinavian Tobacco Group, and Tim led CAO until 2010 when General Cigar Co. took it over.
Aramas is Ozgener Family Cigars' first line crafted at Perez-Carrillo Jr.’s Tabacalera La Alianza S.A. factory. This isn't surprising, given Tim Ozgener's co-ownership of Crowned Heads, a company with a strong history of working with Perez-Carrillo.
"Aramas is an homage to my father, Cano Ozgener, his penchant for hard work, and his value for the relationships he cultivated in his lifetime,” said Ozgener. "We worked with Ernesto (Perez-Carrillo) on Aramas to develop a dense, complex, and rich blend, that also retained impeccable balance.”
