PCA 2024: A Bronx Tale with Chaos Palminteri and Paul DiSilvio (Audio)

4/22/2024
Chazz Palminteri was at the 2024 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show with his A Bronx Tale brand. 2023 saw Palminteri team up with Epic Cigars’ Dean Parsons and La Casa Grande’s Paul DiSilvio for the first A Bronx Tale release. The original Bronx Tale release was a limited edition. This year, Palminteri and company are launching a new line at PCA 2024 – A Bronx Tale Calogero. While it’s still being done in conjunction with Parsons and DiSilvo, the big difference is Calogero is a full-time regular production line. PCA 2024 Report: https://wp.me/p6h1n1-svV

PCA 2024: Gran Habano (Audio)

4/20/2024
At the 2024 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show, Gran Habano Cigars had one of the most unique themes at this year's Trade Show - leather. Gran Habano showcased three unique offerings this year - each presented in a beautiful leather case. One of the offerings was the long-awaited Corojo No. 7. At the same time, there are also some new twists on some Gran Habano favorites, which are also packaged in leather. 2023 was undoubtedly a banner year for Gran Habano, capped off by winning the El Oso Fumar #1 Cigar of the Year with the 20th Aniversario El Sueno. Based on what we saw for 2024, the sky is certainly the limit for Gran Habano. PCA 2024 Report: https://wp.me/p6h1n1-svc

PCA 2024: Altadis U.S.A. (Audio)

4/19/2024
Altadis U.S.A. was a busy booth at the 2024 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show. Plenty of new or newly released products were showcased. Leading the way was the ultra-premium Montecristo 1935 Anniversary Edición Noble Diamonte and a special release celebrating the 180th anniversary of H. Upmann. At the same time, there are projects among many of the other brands under Altadis U.S.A. It should be no surprise that Altadis U.S.A. got off to a fast start, given its banner year in 2023. Consequently, this resulted in a 2023 Large Company of the Year award for Altadis and its parent company, Tabacalera USA, and a 2023 Person of the Year award for Vice President of Product Capability Rafael Nodal.

PCA 2024: De Los Reyes Cigars (Audio)

4/18/2024
De Los Reyes is always a fun stop at the Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show, but this year things were even more exciting. For over a decade Cigar Coop has covered De Los Reyes, but for the most part the focus has been on its Saga brand. While there is a new blend for the long-time Saga No 7 line, it’s De Los Reyes’ other brand Don Julio that is taking center stage at PCA 2024. The Don Julio line pays homage to Don Julio Samuel Reyes Fermin, a third-generation member of the Reyes family who was known as one of the legendary growers in the industry. Don Julio has two new releases that are the first major releases under Don Julio in over a decade. PCA 2024 Report: https://wp.me/p6h1n1-stN

PCA 2024: My Father Cigars (Audio)

4/17/2024
Coming into the 2024 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show, My Father Cigars had already had an exciting year. Not only did the company win the Cigar Coop 2023 Cigar of the Year with the Le Bijou 1922 100 Años, but for the second year in a row, My Father Cigars was our Large Factory of the Year. This year, the momentum continued, highlighted by the launch of the Fonseca MX Edition. In addition, there was the national launch of the Don Pepin Vintage Edition and a new size for El Centurion H-2K-CT. Perhaps the most exciting news would be plans for the Le Bijou 1922 100 Años to make a return. PCA 2024 Report: https://wp.me/p6h1n1-stf

PCA 2024: Drew Estate (Audio)

4/17/2024
The 2024 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show marked the return of Drew Estate to the Trade Show. Drew Estate certainly didn't miss a beat when it came to the Trade Show. The booth was chock full of excitement, traffic, and loud music. However, this was still a very different trade show for Drew Estate. In the past, Drew Estate was known for launching a slew of new product offerings at the PCA Show. This year, Drew Estate only came into PCA 2024 with one new product, the Blackened S84 Shade to Black. Despite it being only one product, this year still had all the energy of the days when Drew Estate would launch many new products. In fact, for a large company launching only one new product, I cannot remember any company doing it in a grander way. PCA 2024 Report: https://wp.me/p6h1n1-st4
