PCA 2024: J.C. Newman Cigar Company (Audio)

5/12/2024
The theme for J.C. Newman Cigar Company at the 2024 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show was sports. That is because J.C. Newman Cigar Company had two sports-themed releases. First up, J.C. Newman showcased a second installment of the LeRoy Neiman Collector’s Series that draws inspiration from the upcoming 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris. Second is a special release honoring the defunct minor league baseball team, the Tampa Smokers. Since J.C. Newman’s El Reloj factory is located in Ybor City, Tampa, the company’s history is entwined with the history of Tampa, so it is appropriate to honor this team. Both the LeRoy Neiman Collector’s Edition and Tampa Smokers cigars are rolled at the El Reloj factory. Additionally, J.C. Newman again brought its cardboard replica of the El Reloj factory to its space at the show. PCA 2024 Report: https://wp.me/p6h1n1-sLe

PCA 2024: Fratello Cigars (Audio)

5/11/2024
Fratello Cigars made history just a month before the 2024 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show. In February, the NOVA-C lander touched down on the moon, with the Fratello Cigars name proudly displayed on the unit. This made Fratello Cigars the first-ever cigar company to have its logo land on the moon. Notably, Fratello Cigars owner Omar de Frias has had close ties to the space program since his days working at NASA. He even launched a series of cigars called Fratello Lunar, inspired by the NOVA-C mission, last year. However, for this year's PCA Trade Show releases, Omar de Frias has focused on some other themes in his portfolios. In addition to this, Fratello Cigars has also introduced a new brand named Concealed Carry Cigars. It is exciting to see the expansion of Fratello Cigars' product range, and the company's commitment to innovation and creativity. PCA 2024 Report: https://wp.me/p6h1n1-sKL

PCA 2024: ADVentura Cigars (Audio)

5/10/2024
ADVentura entered the 2024 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show after undergoing significant changes over the previous six months from both a production and distribution end. It's well-known the company was significantly impacted by a fire that destroyed the factory it was using, Tabacalera William Ventura. Last year, ADVentura decided to handle production by building its own factory, Tabacalera Mina del Rey. Meanwhile, the company also changed distribution partners, moving from Sutliff Tobacco to City of Palms. The changes have opened the road for ADVentura to continue evolving its brand. The long-awaited third installment to the Royal Return series debuted this year. On top of it, there is a follow-up release to 2022's Barbarroja's Invasion. PCA 2024 Report: https://wp.me/p6h1n1-sKh

PCA 2024: United Cigars (Audio)

5/9/2024
United Cigars always has a lot of new activity at their booth, and the 2024 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show was no exception. This year, United Cigars reintroduced an old brand, expanded its eponymous United brand, and celebrated the 30th anniversary of the La Gianna Havana brand. However, there was a slight difference as Selected Tobacco, owned by Nelson Alfonso and distributed by United Cigars, did not have a separate booth due to visa problems for Alfonso. Instead, the current Selected Tobacco products were showcased at the United booth. PCA 2024 Report: https://wp.me/p6h1n1-sJd
