A number of cigar brands shared the island-themed booth of Jim Robinson and Oscar Valladares, brought together by their distribution agreement with Valladares. It was a busy booth, but one that was quite relaxing and reflective of the island lifestyle.
There are no new cigars or sizes for any of “Island” Jim Robinson’s portfolio, which includes the Leaf by Oscar, the Island Jim, The Woody, and Big Johnny. But, Robinson did have something new: pork sticks.
That’s right, Island Jim BBQ Pineapple Pork Sticks. He’s offering them to cigar shops to put at the register as somewhat of an impulse buy, as they’ll be priced around $2 per stick. Robinson developed the recipe, and will pack the sticks in the same boxes that are used by the Island Jim No.2.
By day 3, Robinson said he went through upwards of 1,500 sticks, and I can tell you they were quite tasty.
