Chinnock Cellars Cigars unveiled a new, smaller version of its Terroir cigar, a 5 x 43 vitola called the Terroir – Petit. The pewter metal band is the same, but this parejo gets a full bun head. The cigars go through a three month rest in new, medium toast French oak barrels to impart some additional flavors. Chinnock describes the cigars as being medium-bodied with a smooth, creamy flavor, a nutty finish and the subtle aromas of a fine wine cellar.

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.
