Blind Man’s Bluff was released at this year’s IPCPR Convention and Trade Show in three sizes, a robusto (5 x 50, $7.50), toro (6 x 52, $8.50) and magnum (6 x 60, $9.50). The cigar uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper, Honduran criollo binder along with filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Honduras. The line is produced at Agroindustrias Laepe S.A. in Danli, Honduras.

An earlier version of this story said the cigar wouldn’t be shipping until Dec. 14; this has been updated after an update from Caldwell Cigar Co.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
