Victor Vitale, who represents and owns a multitude of brands, outlined his plans for the IPCPR show across his array of labels, which include Hammer + Sickle, Ortsac and Tortuga. The Russian influence Hammer + Sickle is set for another year with an IPCPR release. Hammer + Sickle will debut Hermeritage, a new box-pressed line set in three sizes: 5 x 52, 6 x 54 and 7 x 56.

I am an editor and co-founder of Media, LLC. I previously co-founded and published TheCigarFeed, one of the two predecessors of halfwheel. I have written about the cigar industry for more than a decade, covering everything from product launches to regulation to M&A. In addition, I handle a lot of the behind-the-scenes stuff here at halfwheel. I enjoy playing tennis, watching boxing, falling asleep to the Le Mans 24, wearing sweatshirts year-round and eating gyros. echte liebe.
