IPCPR 2019: Barrington House Cigars


Barrington House Cigars might not be a name you’re familiar with, but it’s a Jamaican brand that is steeped in cigar history with plenty of names you would be well familiar with.

After a sharp decline in not only Jamaican tobacco production, but Jamaican produced cigars throughout the 1990s due to various reasons, Barrington House Cigars was eventually the only cigar factory left in Jamaica. Having had a successful business selling cigars just in Jamaica, there wasn’t much of any focus on the U.S. cigar market and thus the company hasn’t been at the IPCPR Convention and Trade Show since 2011. This year marks the return, and while there wasn’t anything new at the show, it was a reintroduction of sorts. The company offers a wide variety of products, from cigars featuring Jamaican and Cuban tobacco—which obviously aren’t for sale in the United States—to flavored cigars, there is certainly a wide portfolio of cigars the company offers.

About the author

I have been smoking cigars since 2005 and reviewing them as a hobby since 2010. Initially, I started out small with a 50-count humidor and only smoking one or two cigars a month. Not knowing anybody else that smoked cigars, it was only an occasional hobby that I took part in. In March of 2010, I joined Nublive and Cigar Asylum, connecting me with many people who also shared an interest in cigars. Reading what they had to say about brands I had never heard of, I quickly immersed myself in the boutique brands of the industry and it was then that cigars transformed from a hobby into a passion.
