Although Warfighter Tobacco Co. debuted at the 2017 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show by launching six cigars—all of which were blended by David Blanco of Blanco Cigar Co., who is also a veteran, and all of which are named after specific caliber bullets—the company did not have anything new at this year’s show.
In fact, Warfighter told me that it is concentrating heavily on picking up more new retailers and supporting its original lines, although there are plans for new cigars at next year’s show.

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.
