2013 is represented in the Chinese calendar by the sign of the snake. To mark the occasion,Davidoff has created the new “Year of the Snake” edition of cigars with three fine limited edition accessories.
Basel, November 2012. At the start of the Chinese Year of the Snake (February 10, 2013), Davidoff is launching the new 2013 “Year of the Snake” Edition cigars with exclusive limited-edition accessories. In the Chinese calendar, the sixth of the twelve Chinese signs of the zodiac is characterized as wise and graceful. The Snake is the quintessential symbol for intelligence and profundity. Particularly delicate and fine when depicted in a figure of eight, it has become one of the most popular decorations in all of Asia, not only for its unique symmetry but also because it carries the promise of infinity, material prosperity and luck. It is said that Snake-people like to possess the finer things in life.
Premium cigar brand Davidoff is also synonymous with luxury and the total “crop to shop” concept. “Year of the Snake” is, therefore, not only the unusual name given to the new limited edition, but also the connection of quintessential wisdom and stylish quality
awareness with Davidoff.
Integrating these characteristics into an aroma represents a challenge for the Davidoff Master Blender: namely, to combine particularly old tobaccos to successfully create three layers of flavor – from floral nuances reminiscent of honey, to caramel, and finally to peppery notes of wood or nut, whilst also providing a captivating quality…. highly aromatic, with light-medium strength and Cuban thickness, the cigar develops a charming creaminess due to the Ecuadorian binder. The impressive Churchill format makes for a long smoking experience punctuated with the delicacy and refinement of a cigar with charisma. The octagonal, red lacquered wooden box containing eight cigars will provide pleasure in the coming year.
The cultural background of this 2013 “Year of the Snake” Edition is every bit as fascinating as its aesthetic appearance: The “White Snake Story”, the Chinese love story still extremely popular today, can trace its origins back to a legend from the Ming dynasty (1368 AD) and, amongst other things, has inspired Davidoff’s new cigar — a cigar that preserves its cultural heritage whilst using passion and attention to detail to unlock the spirit of a dynamic, global environment. Those who fall in love with this cigar have no sense of superficiality. The fine, profound 2013 “Year of the Snake” Edition is for aficionados who smoke intelligently. The uniqueness of this luxurious edition with a double ring speaks for itself. It is limited to 4,500 pieces and is available at Appointed Merchants beginning in December 2012.

Ocean State Cigars’ new Lancero Limitado shape (7-1/2″ x 41) is now available for shipment to retailers, following a three-month delay. Tobacconists can receive shipments of J. Grotto Reserve Lancero Limitados in time for holiday shopping. The boutique premium cigar was planned to debut and ship to retailers at IPCPR time, but suffered delays at Fabrica de Tabacos Raices Cubanas, the Honduran manufacturer. According to Paul Joyal, Ocean State Cigars’ founder, “The factory is suffocating under success, having been swamped with orders, due to the reputation they’ve earned for quality and performance. It’s understandable, based on the ratings for their core client, Alec Bradley Cigars, as well as our and other private-label brands . The good news is that they’re catching up with demand. Our present cigars are now flowing, with a new J. Grotto cigar set to be announced soon.”
The Lancero Limitado parejo joins the four existing shapes in the J. Grotto Reserve line, and shares the same blend, which has garnered top ratings since their introduction last year. The filler is Honduran-grown ligero and Nicaraguan-grown Jalapa, while the binder and wrapper are Honduran-grown Criollo 98 and 99, respectively. The cigars are entubado-bunched, and the heads have a traditional Cuban pigtail. Joyal reports the new shape promises to be the company’s signature cigar. “Sampling this initial shipment,” he says, “has shown them to be incredibly rich and complex, more so than any of our other cigars. Their power underpins their equally full flavor profile, and doesn’t intrude or overwhelm the palate. For the connoisseur, the predominant flavors are toast, earthiness and chocolate, with an abundance of more subtle notes.”
With a very limited production of only 1,000 cigars, the Lancero Limitado is exclusively for events hosted by J. Grotto retailers. Only four boxes of ten cigars are available per event. Their manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $7.95.
Zander-Greg has just debuted their new Nat Cicco HHB superpremium cigar. It comes in three sizes: 7-1/4″ x 52, 6-1/4″ x 56 and 5-1/4″ x 54. They share a pigtail-capped head and a foot that is enclosed within the wrapper. Both features are also common to Zander-Greg’s just-introduced Aniversario 1965, which celebrates the year the Nat Cicco (SEEK-oh) “Rejects” were born … the original value-priced cigar based on the oft-copied “Rejects” theme.
HHB has an Ecuadorian-grown Connecticut Shade leaf wrapper, with a Nicaraguan binder and filler. The cigar is well-balanced and full-bodied. The result is a smoke that the company describes as “robust, but creamy- smooth, very flavorful and elegantly aromatic.” The cigar’s performance and opulent presentation have prompted Zander-Greg to confidently compare it to Cuba’s vaunted Cohiba Behike, which retails for over $50 a cigar. HHB’s presentation befits its $14.00 manufacturer’s suggested retail price … a black “piano-finish,” furniture-grade Spanish cedar humidor-style box, holding ten nude cigars.
In only five years since buying and reintroducing the dormant Nat Cicco Reject brand, Zander-Greg has systematically climbed the ladder to market recognition and acceptance. Rejects are machine-made with homogenized binder, but still trump their short-filler competitors .. Rejects’ extra-select, medium-length Cameroon, Connecticut, Honduran and Dominican remnants come from some of America’s most prestigious and sought-after premiums.
Cuban Legends, their first 100%-prime-leaf, handmade premium, retailing at under $2.50, has been their next success, fueled by the sagging economy. In early 2012, the company unveiled the Nat Cicco Aniversario 1965 vintage cigar, with a competitive retail price of $6.00. It is also gaining ground rapidly, according to a company spokesman.
Zander-Greg’s ambitious 2013 advertising campaign will introduce HHB to smokers and retailers alike, to help build a network of participating shops. The company is also actively promoting their cigars with in-store events nationwide.
Nat Cicco HHB is making a beachhead on the superpremium and Havana market, with smokers being asked to “Just compare it … especially to Cuba’s Cohiba Behike.”

IPCPR 2012 brought us a lot of new and interesting cigars. It has been 4 years since I have attended the show but from what I have heard a lot of good things are on the horizon. One of these is the new offering from General cigar, the Foundry. This cigar was created on the premise of the “steam punk” craze. The weird bronze ring that comes on it is interesting to say the least. It actually fit my ring finger… but anyway. The cigar itself is really made well and the wrapper is of high quality.
The flavor coming off of this cigar is unique; it’s a toasted, leathery, and earthy kinda flavor. Definitely not like anything i have had before. This certainly was a great smoke from start to finish, I am not the biggest general cigar fan unless its a La Gloria Cubana but this is the best smoke they have come out with for awhile. I suggest getting your hands on a few when they hit the stores.
Tampa, FL – September 14, 2012 – This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the AVO cigar
brand created by cigar icon Avo Uvezian, who began composing cigars in 1987.

It is this passion for music and cigars that has presented Avo with such happiness throughout the last quarter century. Today, in celebration of 25 years, Avo presents his passions to you…
A stunning black lacquered, wooden ‘piano’ box, containing a short-term humidification system and a small compartment for accessory storage, brilliantly displays the “AVO 25th Anniversary Edition” cigars. Presented in a splendid 6” x 52 Toro format, the full-bodied, remarkably aromatic cigar, possesses sweet and spicy notes with a truly captivating aftertaste. The extraordinarily balanced filler tobaccos are refined with a Piloto binder and crowned with a silky Criollo, Sun-Grown (D.R.) wrapper, creating an exceptional smoking experience. Consisting entirely of Dominican tobaccos – a true Dominican “Puro” is brought to life in celebration of this special anniversary.
“The packaging for this marvelous occasion is a masterpiece of its kind. The “grand piano” box, crafted specifically for the 25th Anniversary of the AVO brand, is monumental and beyond comparison.” explains Scott Kolesaire, AVO Brand Manager. “The 25th Anniversary Edition cigar is a magnificent blend that perfectly captures the passion, quality and expertise that has gone into every AVO cigar over the past 25 years.”
The “AVO 25th Anniversary Edition” is produced in extremely limited quantities, only 2,000 individually numbered boxes containing 25 cigars each will be available in the United States.

When i received these samples I had never heard of this brand. I was intrigued though at how well made they seemed and how beautiful the wrappers were. This is a cigar from yesteryear as it is an old brand from a long time ago. From the 7-20-4 website:
Kurt A. Kendall always had a fascination for old cigar memorabilia and collected anything he could get his hands on. After years in the industry, he had the idea to bring back the 7-20-4. After acquiring the defunct trademark, Kurt got to work reproducing this fine cigar and making it from one of the finest blends available.
Long filler tobaccos from Nicaragua, Honduras, Mexico and Columbia and a Costa Rican binder make K.A. Kendall’s 7-20-4 a smooth and flavorful cigar. A Brazilian Mata Fina wrapper ensures an even burn on this medium-bodied smoke.
Upon lighting up this cigar there great smells of hay and faint chocolate. Smoking into the second third the burn was flawless and i picked up some caramel notes. The cigar provided plenty of smoke and was enjoyable all the way through. With the few changes it had a fair amount of complexity I would recommend this cigar to fellow aficionados.
Table 36, an emerging boutique cigar maker, unveiled its first premium cigar line in May. Fellowship, a medium- to medium-full-bodied cigar, is made at the Alec Bradley-owned Fabrica de Tabacos Raices Cubanas (“Cuban Roots Cigar Factory”) in Danli, Honduras. The company currently produces a string of 90+ rated boutique cigars, under their own label and for several private label customers.
Table 36 founder and president, Bob Atchisson, describes Fellowship’s birth: “A full year, working with Raices Cubanas’ master blender, has refined it into our ‘best-foot-forward’ market entry. The boutique cigar market is targeted at epicures, restlessly scouting for the next new smoking experience. Their interest is sparked by the Table 36 company name.
Over two dozen top smokeshops in the Midwest and elsewhere are now introducing the first Fellowship cigars to smokers. To make a beachhead, this cigar must have unique character … memorable in its own particular way of satisfying. Alec Bradley and Raices Cubanas didn’t disappoint … Its flavor and aroma are out of the park.”
Fellowship comes in four shapes … Corona Gorda (5.5″ x 46), Robusto (5″ x 50), Toro (6″ x 50) and their proprietary “V58″ (6.5″ x 58). The 100% long-leaf filler blend combines leaf from Nicaragua’s Jalapa Valley with rare Honduran tobacco, grown on the Raices Cubanas’ tobacco farm in Trojes, Honduras. The binder is Honduran-grown Criollo 98 tobacco, and the wrapper is a Honduran-grown Habano Colorado Subido (“High Red”) leaf. The tobaccos are aged a full 3-4 years, and the cigars another 6 months, yielding a rich, mellow flavor profile. Atchisson reports, “Fellowship is described by reviewers as ‘earthy and spicy, with a touch of sweetness,’ with ‘strong leather notes and floral hints.’
“We bunch the cigars using the traditional but seldom-used entubado (tubed) method, in which the filler leaves are rolled into individual tubes, surrounding a similarly-tubed ligero core. This technique eliminates the two most common complaints by smokers … uneven burn, and hard or plugged draw. The process is more painstaking than conventional bunching, but the results in smokers’ satisfaction are well worth it, especially to uncompromising connoisseurs. All shapes have distinctively classic Cuban pigtail heads.”
The cigars are individually protected in cellophane tubes, and presented in substantial, high-quality 20-count cedar boxes, with the distinctive Table 36 logo. When queried about the company name, Atchisson explains, “For years, our group of cigar-loving friends and
colleagues has met regularly at a nearby restaurant. This tradition has continued for so long, we have earned a table reserved for our exclusive use. Our spirit of fellowship is what created the idea of launching our own cigar brand.
It still amazes me how a bunch of rolled-up leaves can create lasting friendships.” The full Fellowship line is now appearing on the shelves of tobacconists, at manufacturer’s suggested retail prices that fall between $7 and $8.50.

Miami, FL – In 1997, Fernando Leon of La Aurora Cigars traveled to New York City with Nestor Miranda from Miami Cigar & Company. This was the first time the head of La Aurora traveled to the United States for a cigar event. The location was Cigar Inn and they were hosted by the Fakir Brothers.
Fifteen years later, La Aurora Cigars is set to release the Fernando Leon and what better then to have the official launch at Cigar Inn. This time joining Gus, Billy & Bas will be the son of Don Fernando, Guillermo Leon who heads La Aurora in the Dominican Republic.
This two-day marathon event starts on Tuesday, October 23rd with a sold-out sit down dinner for Cigar Inn members. The dinner which will feature the Fernando Leon will be catered by Rothmann’s Steak house.

The son of Eduardo León Jimenes was a Master Blender before taking on the role of President when his father passed. The cigar named after him was the only cigar he smoked on a daily basis. He was 89 years old when he passed. Today, his son Guillermo Leon heads La Aurora making him the third generation of the Leon family business to run the company.

General Cigar is proud to present Macanudo Vintage 2006, a phenomenal cigar showcasing only the most refined Connecticut Shade wrapper leaves from the 2006 crop.
More than 30 years ago, General Cigar created its first Macanudo Vintage cigar to spotlight an exceptional wrapper developed in part by Mother Nature herself. Today, guided by meticulous aging and precise maturation techniques which have been handed down throughout the years, the Vintage tradition continues with the release of Macanudo Vintage 2006.
“The Vintage 2006 Connecticut Shade wrapper was cultivated under perfect weather conditions. Ideal sun, rainfall and temperatures yielded an extraordinary crop of shade tobacco that is beautiful to see, and even better to smoke,” said Bill Chilian, director of marketing for Macanudo.
A strikingly lustrous golden wrapper takes center stage in Macanudo Vintage 2006. Imparting a wonderfully balanced and complex flavor which is punctuated by the traditional Vintage blend, Macanudo Vintage 2006 will debut with just two frontmarks, as dictated by the leaves themselves.
Macanudo Vintage 2006 Robusto (5 ½” x 50) will make its retail debut in November, and will be available for a suggested retail price of $8.39 per cigar, or $100.68 for a box of 12. It will be complemented by Macanudo Vintage 2006 Toro (6” x 54) which will carry an SRP of $8.99 per cigar, or a box price of $107.88.
These exceptional cigars will be protected in handsome mahogany boxes. When the lid is lifted, the fragrant cedar aroma and eye-catching golden metal cigar bands take over the senses, beckoning the true cigar lover to savor the indulgence that can only be had with a time-honored classic.
Enhancing its tradition of artistry and innovation, Team La Gloria Cubana presents a new take on their trunk show series with two boutique, small batch releases called Liga YG-23 and Liga LR-1.
In true La Gloria fashion, these limited collections consist solely of proprietary tobaccos and feature innovations never before seen in the premium cigar category.
“Yuri Guillen and I are constantly experimenting with blends, often calling upon the tobacco in General Cigar’s extensive library. Many of these tobaccos are extremely rare, which prohibits us from developing new collections with them. Instead, we are pleased to make the distinctive tastes of our Liga YG-23 and Liga LR-1 blends available in small batches, to share with true cigar connoisseurs,” commented Michael Giannini, La Gloria Cubana’s director of marketing.
Liga YG-23 is a limited release of a mere 500 boxes, made entirely of proprietary tobacco and featuring the premium cigar category’s first smokeable band. Created by Team La Gloria’s Yuri Guillen, Liga YG-23 is dressed in an Ecuadoran Sumatra Especiale wrapper, balanced by its Dominican and Nicaraguan blend. Consisting of taste notes derived from a harmonious collection of seco, viso and ligero leaves, Liga YG-23 features a patent-pending band stamped with vegetable dye which allows the premium cigar smoker to experience the distinguished taste from foot to tuck. Liga YG-23 cigars measure 7” x 60 and are presented in rustic wooden boxes, allowing the small batch cigars to take center stage. Liga YG-23 will be available at retail in early November, for a suggested retail price of $9.45 per cigar, or $245.70 for a 26-count box.
Liga LR-1 showcases rare tobaccos, each aged between 8 and 10 years. Featuring a silky Habano Connecticut Fino wrapper offset by an exclusive Nicaraguan blend, Liga LR-1 is handcrafted with a proprietary double binder. Each element works in complete harmony to impart the unique flavor notes that can only be brought to life through meticulous attention to aging and maturation. Team La Gloria’s artistry extends to the patent-pending, die-cut smokeable band, an innovation never before seen in the premium cigar category. Measuring 7” x 52, Liga LR-1 cigars will be available in early November, for a suggested retail price of $8.95 per cigar, or $232.70 for a handsome, lacquered box containing 26 cigars. Only 500 boxes will be available for this one-time issuance.
Macanudo 1968 Court Tin
Macanudo 1968 answered the call of tenured smokers looking for the next new taste experience from America’s favorite premium brand. The tradition continues with Macanudo 1968 Court, a new frontmark made specifically for smoking occasions that are short on time but demand the flavor and complexity of a full-sized smoke. Packed in a sturdy tin, Macanudo 1968 Court (4 3/16” x 36) is a highly portable, accessible complement to any tenured smoker’s favorite occasion. The SRP is $13.99 for a five cigar tin.

Partagas Black Label Colossal
Big and bold are the two best ways to sum up Partagas Black Label Colossal (5” x 60), a burly new smoke from the venerable Dominican brand. Not for the faint of heart, this large-ring frontmark rounds out the highly-rated collection and is ideal for the initiated smoker. Partagas Black Label Colossal will debut in late August, with a suggested retail price per cigar of $ 7.39 or $147.80 for a box containing 20 cigars.
CAO OSA Sol New Sizes
The provocative taste of CAO OSA Sol has won the cigar a place in the humidors of even the most hard-to -please cigar enthusiasts. Thanks to its devoted fan base zealots who are quick to spread the gospel of this cult favorite, CAO is proud to welcome two new frontmarks called Lot T (4 ½” x 50) and Lot 46 (5 ¼” x 46) to the OSA Sol lineup. Sneak previews at special CAO events held throughout the year have sparked demand for this duo of new offerings which are sure to be a quick sellout following their late August retail debut. Both Lot T and Lot 46 will be available for an SRP per cigar of $5.50, or $137.50 for a 25-count box.
General Cigar is proud to introduce FOUNDRY, a new boutique collection created to amplify the artistry and romanticism of premium cigars.
FOUNDRY is a stark juxtaposition between the old and the new. This visually-arresting collection was inspired by the art form of “steampunk,” which is both a retrospective and futuristic interpretation of innovation.
FOUNDRY is the brainchild of Michael Giannini who led the team that created the breakthrough brand. “Innovation comes from many sources,” he notes. “It is a pleasure and an honor to be able to call upon our greatest resources: the collective talent of cigar masters, our expertise in tobacco cultivation, processing and blending and the creativity of our artisan cigar rollers and box makers to bring FOUNDRY to fruition.”
Through a groundbreaking approach previously unseen in the premium cigar category, FOUNDRY entices the premium cigar connoisseur to take a bold step back in time and a quantum leap into the future to envision the artistry of handmade cigars through the lens of unbridled innovation.
Visual considerations aside, FOUNDRY’s avant-garde approach extends to its masterfully balanced synthesis of flavors. Featuring an indulgent collection of five proprietary tobaccos from four different countries, each aged between three and six years, Foundry’s foundation is amplified through an eight year old wrapper developed by General Cigar. Called H-47 Pleno Sol, the lustrous wrapper imparts a deeply complex, layered smoking experience like no other.
The four-cigar collection is accessibly-priced, and will make its mark on tobacco retail starting in late-October. Foundry features these new cigars: Wells (6”x 50, SRP per cigar is $7.95); Lovelace (6 ¼ ” x 54, SRP per cigar is $8.45); Talbot (5” x 60, SRP per cigar is $8.95) and Cayley (6 ½” x 60 x 56 x 43, SRP per cigar is $9.45). Each frontmark is presented with a unique box design and features both a traditional paper band and a steampunk-inspired metal gear band.
Introducing Don Sixto by Plasencia, a new collection developed by the Plasencia Group. Don Sixto will be marketed and distributed exclusively by General Cigar, marking the first collaboration between the two companies which entered into a joint venture in March, 2010.
According to Nestor Plasencia, president of The Plasencia Group, “We’re excited to release our first cigar in partnership General Cigar. We are looking forward to tapping into their marketing expertise and the strength of their dedicated sales team to bring Don Sixto to cigar lovers across the U.S.”
Don Sixto is named in tribute to Sixto Plasencia, the patriarch who established the family’s tobacco empire in Cuba and was among the first to cultivate tobacco in Honduras and Nicaragua. This four-cigar collection is made of hand-selected tobaccos solely cultivated on the very plantations where Don Sixto himself toiled for decades.
Handcrafted in Honduras, Don Sixto cigars embody the Plasencia’s unwavering commitment to tobacco. As such, they are handcrafted with a Connecticut Honduras wrapper and proprietary Nicaraguan and Honduran blend, with a Habano Esteli binder, all cultivated and processed by the Plasencia Group. Just as the Plasencia family stands alone in tobacco, the distinctive flavor and fine, aged tobaccos are peerless.
The four-cigar collection will make its retail debut in early October, featuring these frontmarks: Robusto
(4 ½” x 50, SRP per cigar is $5.75); Corona Gorda (5 ½” x 52, SRP per cigar is $6.25); Toro Grande
(6” x 56, SRP per cigar is $6.75) and Grande (6” x 60, SRP per cigar is $7.25).
With visual representations of the family’s original Cuban tobacco farm called El Corojal, Don Sixto by Plasencia is sure to speak to those who are drawn to cigars born of the legacy and expertise of a true tobacco dynasty.
