We had a good idea of what Kristoff had in store, so it was really a matter of seeing if Glen Case had any tricks up his sleeve this year.


The Galerones project was announced in mid-June, and the 685 Woodlawn was initially released at the TAA meeting in early April. It hasn’t shipped, however, so delivery dates for the ones sold at IPCPR have been pushed back a bit.


And the Galerones line, with much more info about them here.

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 previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
