Esteban Carreras has announced that a portion of its portfolio will be getting a bit more expensive in 2021.

Craig Cunningham, the company’s president, told halfwheel that the Chupacabra line will be going up by 10 cents per cigar. Additionally, some of the company’s short filler cigars—those that had retailed for under $8 per cigar—will also be going up by 10 cents per cigar. He did not specify for a reason for the increase.

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 MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
