The name Stallone is Italian for stallion and it reflects on the theme of the company. The company was founded by Tony Barrios, who is a cutting horse competitor. For the Cowboy Series, the cigars draw an analogy between the color of the wrapper and the color of the horse.
The Nicaraguan wrapper of the Stallone Negro Maduro Box pressed has a rich chocolate color to it. The surface of the wrapper had a very thin sheen of oil on it. This was a smoother wrapper with thin visible veins and thin visible seams.
