This past January, Vintage Rock-A-Feller Group was sold to Kevin Schweitzer, making this his first trade show at the helm of the company. Schweitzer kept much of the portfolio intact, though admits that some lines aren’t doing quite as well as others and may eventually go away.

However, there was one line he felt wasn’t getting the attention he thought it deserved, the Nicaraguan-made Vintage Red, the maduro in the collection. While he had the entire portfolio on the table at the trade show, this one was definitely the focus as he looks to grow the brand’s presence both domestically and internationally.

Rock-A-Feller Vintage Red

While not quite a new cigar, Schweitzer thought this cigar was quite drastically under promoted prior to this year’s trade show, so he decided to do something about it. It’s being made at American Caribbean Tobacco in Nicaragua.

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, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
