2021 was the 25th Anniversary of the first Smoke Inn premium cigar store. To celebrate, Drew Estate and Smoke Inn’s owner, Abe Dababneh, have created a special commemorative Herrera Estelí cigar honoring Abe’s father and mentor, Raji Dababneh. The Herrera Estelí Miami Smoke Inn 25th Anniversary Raji comes in one size, a 6 x 50 Toro. It is a limited-edition cigar rolled at El Titan De Bronze, the Little Havana boutique cigar factory that’s owned by Drew Estate Master Blender Willy Herrera’s family and where Herrera Estelí Miami cigars are made.
The blend for Herrera Estelí Miami Smoke Inn 25th Anniversary Raji uses a Mexican San Andres wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. Each cigar features a commemorative foot band and are packaged in boxes of 10 that are adorned with the Smoke Inn logo. Raji’s signature on the bottom of every box.
When I was growing up in Chicago, I watched my dad work tirelessly at the little grocery store he owned. He always put in whatever it took to overcome any challenges and keep a roof over our heads and food on our table. He is a true inspiration for me as a businessman, husband and as a father. I learned, and continue to learn, so much from him. Dedicating our 25th anniversary cigar to him is the best way for me to give my heartfelt thanks to him for all that he has done for me.
Abe and I have been close friends from very early on, and he has always been a true ‘stand and deliver’ guy who deserves tremendous success. His father, Raji, clearly has been a great mentor and teacher. It’s an honor to pay tribute to Raji, as well as celebrate Smoke Inn’s 25th anniversary with this majestic Herrera Estelí Miami expression.
The Herrera Estelí Miami Smoke Inn 25th Anniversary Raji will debut at Smoke Inn’s 25th Anniversary party on May 6 from 6 to 9 p.m. atop the Tru By Hilton Pompano Beach hotel. Guests of the event will meet Jonathan, Willy, Abe, and the man of honor himself, Raji Dababneh, while enjoying food and spirits and grooving to beats spun by Drew Estate’s very-own D.J. Eli. All guests will receive a party packet containing a commemorative “The Raji” ashtray and 29 assorted cigars, including the Herrera Estelí Miami Smoke Inn 25th Anniversary Raji.
Tickets will go on sale beginning on April 6th and are limited to only 250 people. Tickets price is $250 and can be purchased exclusively through the company’s website, smokeinn.com. After the event, Herrera Estelí Miami Smoke Inn 25th Anniversary Raji cigars will be available exclusively at Smoke Inn while supplies last.
