Reyes 2009 Event

We had a packed house for our Reyes Family event on the 27th! Now whether or not it had to do with the fact that Reyes super salesman Jose Ortega was in the house or the fact that we rolled-out a number of new Reyes lines, we were jammin!

I've seen Jose in action in years past and he knows how to work a crowd like no other! This guy could write his own ticket and work where ever and for who ever he wished. It speaks volumes about the respect and relationship that he and the Reyes family have for each other that he remains where he's at. That's not to be taken for granted!

Jose did confide to me that this was one of the easiest events that he's ever worked. We simply sampled out cigars to everyone who stopped by and the product sold itself!

The biggest hit of the night by far was the Miami-made Cuba Aliados Miami Edition followed closely behind by both the Miami-made Reyes Vintage and the Nicaraguan-made Reyes Premier.

I really encourage our customers to attend our monthly events for a number of good reasons. First off, it's always a great time to try a cigar that you might have been curious about but never got around to smoking and the incentives that the manufacturers offer can't be beat! Second, it's an opportunity to make some new friends or re-aquant yourself with some old ones. We are blessed to have a great bunch of customers - both men and women - who support our monthly events. Everyone is friendly and quick to offer a hello or assistance.

Next month on the 24th we will be helping launch the new JC Newman cigar, Brick House. Please plan on joining us for what is sure to be another awesome gathering!

Here's a few photos that Maria and I snapped while attending the 2009 IPCPR trade show in New Orleans.

It was great to see so many of our old friends!

NUB Event

Sorry to take so long publishing the photos from our July 30th NUB event.

It was a great time as always and interesting to watch the expressions on the faces of our customers who had never seen or experienced NUB cigars. The format is certainly different to be sure! But once they lit up and experienced the big flavor, it was a slam dunk.

Specials thanks to Cory Bappert of Olivia Cigars for co-hosting our event.

If you're a fan of the NUB, we'll be featuring Sam Leccia's latest creation -CAIN- on our December 3rd event!

CAIN will be available in traditional sizes in Habano and Maduro wrappers. CAIN is a blend of straight ligero tobaccos from various parts of Nicaragua. The ligero is triple fermented to give the cigar a balance and smoothness not often found in ligero blends.
