Ozgener Family Cigars is a story about the American Dream. Cano Aret Ozgener was an Armenian born in Turkey. Esen Ozgener is Turkish, born and raised in Istanbul. Both overcame obstacles and, through hard work, came to America with scholarships to top universities in New York City. There they met, and with shared values of industriousness, education, and reputation, they married and moved to the foothills of Tennessee to start a family and a new life.

Ozgener Family Cigars represents a real-life example of how people from
conflicting cultures & backgrounds overcame them through love, shared values, and humanity.

We hope you celebrate, enjoy, and share this cigar with civility and good humor!

ARAMAS

‘Aramas’ is a name that represents the famous Mt. Ararat in Armenia. People in the world call it “Mt. Ararat” while the people in Armenia call it “Masis.” “Aramas” is a melding of the two words. Aramas represents Cano Ozgener’s background as a hard-working, relationship-minded and kindhearted Armenian raised in Istanbul.

This medium to full-bodied cigar is a complex blend with an intermingling of roasted nuts, dark chocolate, hints of black pepper, and powdered sugar.

BOSPHORUS

Ozgener Family Cigars’ Bosphorus blend is named after the Bosphorus Strait that separates Europe from Asia in Turkey.

The cigar is rich, box-pressed, and complex: featuring a Havana 2000 seed Ecuador wrapper, a double-binder — Connecticut seed, Ecuador, and Nicaraguan Jalapa — and a trio of sweet & savory Nicaraguan fillers from Esteli, Jalapa, and the volcanic island Omotepe. The result is a dense cigar with an explosion of flavors. The cigar begins as spicy and bold, with notes of black pepper. Then it settles in with a dessert-like quality, layering the palate with notes of cocoa powder and coffee, balanced by secondary annotations of nutmeg, leather, and wood, culminating in a finish that smacks of toffee.

The cigar recently got two 93s, a 92, and a 90 from Cigar Aficionado, making it the Ozgener family’s highest vertical rating in their over 40 years in the tobacco business. This award-winning blend is made at Tabacalera La Alianza in Santiago, Dominican Republic, under the watchful eye of Cigar Aficionado Hall-of-Famer Ernesto Perez-Carrillo.

FIRSAT

“Firsat” is a Turkish word when translated to English means “opportunity.” The story of Oz Family Cigars is inspired by the real life journey of Esen and Cano Ozgener.

“Firsat” represents their dream to come to America. A country representing freedom and opportunity. Symbolized by the Statue of Liberty.
Through hard work and diligence, Cano & Esen earned scholarships for graduate degrees in the US — Cano at Columbia University for a Masters in Mechanical Engineering, and Esen as the Fulbright scholar at Bank Street College of Education.

They met at the International House in New York City and fell in love — with shared interests in arts, culture, and industriousness.
Oz Family Cigars’ “Firsat” blend features the highest quality, Connecticut seed Ecuador wrapper from a higher priming. It yields a bronze, golden-tan, oily leaf. The fillers are from the finest combination of flavorful, mild Nicaraguan tobacco from the most fertile fields. The result is a cigar that’s easily accessible in its mild to medium body profile, yet with luscious, rich flavors. Oz Family Cigars represents a real-life example of how people from conflicting cultures & backgrounds overcame them through love, shared values, and humanity.
