HOLLYWOOD, FL — As part of their 20th anniversary celebration in 2015, Maya Selva Cigars has added a new cigar to their Flor de Selva collection: the Lancero. Due to its success, they decided to create an entire 20th Anniversary collection–including the most popular vitolas in Europe: the Egoísta, Robusto, Petit Corona, and Tempo. The official name is the “Colección Aniversario Nº20.” After an enormous response in Europe, they are now bringing the Colección stateside as their official 2017 release.
La Palina over the weekend announced that the limited-edition Bronze Label begins shipping to TAA retailers today. The cigar was blended through a collaborative effort with Rocky Patel and is only available to members of the Tobacconists’ Association of America, a retailer organization that represents American brick-and-mortar tobacconists.
In a “strategic alliance agreement,” Altadis U.S.A. will begin distributing the products from Boutique Blends Cigars, a company owned by Rafael Nodal, his wife, Alina, and partner Hank Bischoff—and Nodal has accepted a position with Altadis as well. Starting June 5, all orders for brands such as Aging Room, La Bohéme, Oliveros and other cigars by Boutique Blends will be taken and fulfilled through Altadis and its sales team.
XIKAR is expanding the popular XO line with the introduction of four new finishes. The next generation of this cutting machine is now shipping to select TAA members, with a full product launch at the 2017 IPCPR Tradeshow in July.
