IPCPR 2013: J. Fuego Cigars

Null

The J. Fuego booth was fairly minimal, with four display cabinets containing the company’s trimmed, refreshed and rebranded offerings. Fuego recently trimmed some sizes and lines from his catalog to make way for his new showcase cigar.

The headlining product of the booth is the new J. Fuego Connoisseur, which uses an Ecuadoran Sumatra wrapper over a Mexican San Andrés binder and Corojo filler from Nicaragua and Honduras. It gets four sizes: the 5 x 60 Corpulent, 5 1/2 x 54 Grand Robusto and 6 x 50 Classique, all with an MSRP of $10, and the 5 x 44 Original, which is $4.00. The Connoisseur Original also comes in cello and wood boxes, the only Original to do so.

About the author

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.
