As we close out our series on Puro Sabor 2018, let's take a look at the events that made the week special. In all honesty, even the everyday lunches were special events. It seemed like every time we gathered for a meal, the organizers pulled out all the stops and made it a grand occasion instead of just another meal. One of my favorite things about all of these events was the reality of being able to sit down with people from all over the world, all walks of life, and all manner of experience in the cigar industry. We were all the same at these events. It was just an enormous group of friends gathering for a meal, some drinks, and great conversation.
his year, we decided to give you a tour of the show through the pictures we took while we were there. Some are of new items, and some are just things we thought were interesting. These manufacturers were not sharing booth space, we just combined them into a single slideshow due to the number of pictures we had from each.

As a business, premium cigars are subject to the same kinds of headaches that can befall any other kind of product in the marketplace. In some cases, trademark and patent disputes can arise. For Mombacho Cigars, they just received a ruling from the United States Patent and Trademark office (USPTO).
The annual festivity was dedicated to Mombacho Cigars’ global network; cigar tastings, sightseeing tours, private dinners, and parties among international retailers, brokers, distributors, customers, tobacco industry personalities, cigar connoisseurs, media, family and great friends in honor of their continuous support of Mombacho Cigars.
