Ahhh...we are less than 2 months from the 2015 IPCPR that will be hosted in New Orleans, LA! A time to release new product, speak with your family of retailers about their shops, customers, and about the future...good times! But we keep getting asked what will we have to release at this years show? So I thought I would give a little insight into this questions that I keep getting asked from retailers, customers, and bloggers.
At this years IPCPR we will be releasing (3) new marcas, and while (2) of those marcas are already known, (1) is still a mystery.
Don Reynaldo - We released Don Reynaldo originally in Dec 2014 as a marca to honor my dad for all he has taught me about cigars and the support he has given to me and the brand over the years. The release was 100 total boxes in a 5.5 x 42 made at El Titan de Bronze in Little Havana, FL and was a big hit amongst our retailers and customers around the US. After speaking in length to my dad about how the blend was received he said that everyone should be able to enjoy it more frequently and so it was decided to re-release the blend at the IPCPR this year. We will only be releasing (1) size of this blend and the size will be released opening day at the IPCPR, we will not let it out before then. Available in 10ct boxes and once again made at El Titan de Bronze in Little Havana, Miami!
Futuro - Or "Future" is a collaboration between Warped x Casa Fernandez, but more specifically Kyle Gellis of Warped and Max Fernandez of Casa Fernandez, son of Eduardo Fernandez, owner of AGANORSA and Casa Fernandez. We originally began speaking about this project at the 2014 IPCPR and it took that much time to develop this concept and blend. We set out to create a profile that is unlike anything Warped or Casa Fernandez has done previously, utilziing 100% AGANORSA material from their "vault" a selection of tobacco under lock and key and specifically for the Fernandez family. (2) vitolas will be offered, a 5 5/8 x 46 corona gorda and a 6 x 52 109 and will be available in boxes of 20. Made at the TABSA factory in Esteli, Nicaragua.
TBA - The last release will be announced at a later date...just hold tight!
