While there was nothing “officially” new from Boveda this year, there are a few things that consumers may be seeing when they pick up their next bunch of cigars.


Four gram and ten gram versions of the company’s humidification packets are being made available to manufacturers who package cigars in stay-fresh packaging for retailers without traditional humidors–think golf courses, hotels, and so on. The four gram version will humidify between one and four cigars, while the ten gram will be found more in cigar boxes, with a capability to humidify up to 25 cigars.


Boveda also showed off its recently released metal humidification pack holder which came out in late May. The new unit holds a single 60g pouch. It measures 5 1/2 x 3 3/4 x 1/2 inches. The $17 unit will mount to the lids of humidors either via velcro or magnets, both of which are included.

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.
