Luis Falto didn’t roll out any new cigars at IPCPR Convention & Trade Show this year, but he’s got a number of projects in the work for next year, as the company will be celebrating its 25th anniversary.

He didn’t get into too many specifics, though he said he has the blends done, and I heard the word lancero used. The company’s formal anniversary is in March, so we’ll be keeping out for more news from Falto around the first of the year as specifics on the celebratory cigars comes into more focus.

Davidoff is the official sponsor of halfwheel's coverage of the 2019 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.

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.
