If 2019 is anything like 2018, there will be many surprise cigar releases from Rocky Patel, Arturo Fuente, and AJ Fernandez, along with many other premium cigar manufacturers. It’s an exciting time in the world of fine cigars.
Last year, the 2018 International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association (IPCPR) brought exhibits from just about everyone in the biz, including Drew Estate, Ashton, Rocky Patel, Perdomo, My Father, AJ Fernandez, and Alec Bradley. In 2018, more so than any other year, it seemed like companies were introducing line extensions, oftentimes in the form of a single, new limited-edition size.
2018 brought the new releases of Alec Bradley Fine and Rare JRS 10= (86) 2018, Esteban Carreras Mr. Brownstone Habano, Asylum 13 Medulla Oblongata Maduro, E.P. Carrillo INCH Ring Master No. 5, Macanudo Inspirado Red Gigante and Hoyo La Amistad Black Toro by AJ Fernandez. The IPCPR is the place to be for retailers seeking the latest and greatest in premium smokes.
