The man in the white Brioni suit has passed away. Cigar icon and jazz musician Avo Uvezian died today at age 91 at his home in Orlando, Florida, just three days after his birthday.
The lawsuit filed jointly by IPCPR, CRA and CAA against the FDA will now be heard on August 30th, pushing the trial back from July 28th. The change was in response to the FDA’s original motion for a 60 day delay, in part to accommodate the transition from the Obama to Trump Administrations. The three trade associations agreed to the 30 day extension, however all three have made it clear to the federal government that any further delays would require extensions of pending compliance deadlines under the deeming rule.
“I was pleasantly surprised by this cigar. I am a big fan of this vitola and this particular cigar is a great example of why. Without being overly strong, this blend likely benefited from some intensified flavors caused by the smaller ring gauge. I was impressed by the sweetness and spicy balance of this smoke for sure. I would definitely keep a few of these on hand for a lunch smoke or a quick after-dinner nightcap. I would recommend pairing this with a good black tea, as the flavors are quite complimentary.” -Ryan (Youngryan216)
