Today Drew Estate announces the Acid Petra Subculture is exclusively returning to Tobacco Plus in Matteson, IL. The ACID Petra is a 5 x 54 Robusto Pigtail vitola featuring a Sumatra wrapper, and was originally released in the early 2000’s.
Las Calaveras EL 2018 is manufactured at My Father Cigars, S.A., in Esteli, Nicaragua, and total production will be limited to 1,700 (24-count) boxes of each of the three vitolas, along with 3,000 samplers. Shipping will begin June 2018.
Celebrating the bond of fatherhood and friendship, Ventura Cigar Company is partnering with key Tobacconists and Smoke Shops across the nation for Fathers, Friends, and Fire, a series of events aimed at sharing stories, experiences, and the love of premium cigars and pipe tobacco.
Aging Room Pura Cepa comes in three handmade varieties: Rondo, Mezzo and Grande, with an MSRP of $12.50 - $13.50 per cigar. Each vitola will be available for purchase nationally, in 20-count boxes with distribution to all trade channels expected to begin in May 2018.
The first third of this cigar was dynamite with the combination of wood, chocolate, cinnamon and cream. Each third thereafter became a little less complex as some of the flavor notes began to drop out. If you haven't tried this line yet, this is a great size to go for as it will show you what the line can provide at a good price point.
Continuing to fill its marketing team with industry specialists, the Ventura Cigar Company (VCC) is pleased to announce Brian Massey’s arrival to the group. Brian will be working under Michael Giannini, who was recently appointed to General Manager of VCC.
There isn't any wow factor here, but the cigar does provide an average flavor profile through the first two thirds with a drop in the final third. Based on other cigars I've reviewed here, this score should fall in line with a fair number of cigars that are priced at twice or three times what this is. With that being said, you can have those same experiences at a discount.
The blend consists of an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers from Esteli / Jalapa. Initial release will be at Cubariqueno’s 3 Year Anniversary event on May 12th at the Holiday Inn located in Clinton, New Jersey through Berkeley Humidor and pre-sales will also be available through BerkeleyHumidor.com initially.
IGNITE project release #2 will be an exciting new size for the award winning Rose of Sharon. The medium bodied blend that was represented on my top cigar lists of 2017 will now be offered in a special round format.
