H. Upmann turns 175 this year, and to commemorate that milestone Altadis has released, you guessed it, the H. Upmann 175th Anniversary. It’s a limited edition Nicaraguan puro with a medio tiempo wrapper. After telling us about the cigars, Candela Diaz shows us the accompanying humidors equipped with the new Boveda Butler smart sensors. After that we take a look at the H.

IPCPR 2019: Tommy Bahama / Island Lifestyle Importers

IPCPR 2019: Aganorsa Leaf

Shade grown what? Terence Reilly tells us about an innovative new wrapper from Aganorsa Leaf that is maduro in color, but grown in the shade. You can experience this tobacco paradox with the new Guardian of the Farm Nightwatch, Aganorsa Leaf Signature Maduro, and JFR Lunatic Loco. We also take a look at a special, limited edition box-pressed perfecto vitola of the Miami Aniversario available exclusively to retailers attending the show.

IPCPR 2019: Macanudo

You can’t drop by the General Cigar booth without stopping by the Macanudo section. This year we talked to Laurel Tilley the new and very limited, brick and mortar-only Macanudo Inspirado Palladium which features more of the tercio-aged tobacco like the kind that goes into the Cohiba Spectre. Next we check out the M Bourbon and extension to the line that started with the M Coffee last year. And finally another limited edition, the Macanudo Heritage Nuevo. …

IPCPR 2019: Curivari

IPCPR 2019: Curivari

As a big fan of Curivari (the Buenaventura in particular) I always look forward to stopping by the Curivari booth and talking to Andreas Throuvalas about what’s happening. This year isn’t about new product for Curivari, it’s about maintaining consistency and building up tobacco inventory. But also reintroducing people to the popular Achilles line with a slightly tweaked blends that promise more depth, and stronger, clearer packaging. …

CAO has a couple of new cigars for 2019. Rick Rodriguez and Doug Baldwin tell us about the idea behind the new CAO Session and consumers can expect when they light it up. We also take a look at the limited edition V19 extension to Flathead, with a tweaked fermentation process intended to give the cigar more body without sacrificing flavor. And we end with the Amazon Trilogy “prequel” cigar, the CAO Orellana, which was named for the cartographer that …

IPCPR 2019: Partagas

IPCPR 2019: Partagas

This year the Partagas Decadas is getting a re-release after- you guessed it- a decade. And Andres Maturen was there to tell us all about it. Though the details of previous release’s blend weren’t made public beyond the 10 year old Cameroon wrapper, I think it’s safe to say the rest of the blend will be a little different. …
