Paul Garmirian and his son Kevork have been busy with two things since last year’s show, inspecting the cigars they have been aging since 1996, and FDA. Because of that, the company decided not to release any new products at this year’s show, instead laying the groundwork to release another small batch of aged cigars.
Paul Garmirian and his son Kevork manned the booth during IPCPR, with the latter around when I stopped by.
One thing that I like about the Paul Garmirian Cigars booth is the layout of cigars on the back table. Seemingly every cigar in the company’s portfolio is laid out side by side, grouped into lines and blends. I can’t say I see that in any other booth, and it is certainly an interesting way to walk a customer through your offerings.
