IPCPR 2018: Prometheus

Null

One company I look forward to every year is easy to spot from afar: Prometheus, whose booth is always full of amazing looking products, including humidors, cutters, lighters, cases and yes, even cigars.

The reason it is so easy to spot might have something to do with the large full-color banner depicting a mythical God the company is named after—in fact, the deity that supposedly introduced fire to mankind—that is at the far end. While the exterior and bones of the booth was essentially the same as previous years, there were some new lighted display cabinets in the middle that included some of the new products that the company released this year.

2018 Fuente Fuente OpusX Serie “Heaven and Earth” Travel Humidors

There was a time when the only place you could get a BBMF—which stands for Big Bad Mother F***er—a Tauros The Bull or a cigar like the 888 Especiale was to have it handed to you by Carlito himself. That has changed over the years and now there are three new limited edition travel humidors, each packed with 10 cigars. In addition, every box is serial-numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

About the author

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
