Your favorite Gran Habano cigars are about to get a bit more expensive, as today the company announced that it will be increasing the wholesale price of all of its cigars by five cents per stick. The increase is effective as of Feb. 19.

The company cited an increased in importation costs as the impetus for the increase, saying that the increased cost will allow them to continue producing cigars without affecting quality.

“At Gran Habano we strive for quality in every leaf and cigar in production,” the company wrote in a letter to retailers. “We would like to express our appreciation and apologize for the inconvenience. We are currently looking into finding a resolution to remedy the issue with the hope that we can go back to our regular prices in the near future.”

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.
