The Vintage Rock-a-Feller booth was located towards the back of the show, and while the layout remained the same as in recent years with a pair of display cases, the company had a new cigar line to show off.

Since acquiring the company in January 2017, Kevin Schweitzer has been reworking the portfolio to better suit the market, and this year he is introducing a new line that he feels will be a welcomed addition to the brand’s offerings, especially once people learn who he worked with to create the new line.

Vintage Rock-A-Feller Dominican Blue

The new regular production addition to the company’s portfolio is a collaboration between Kevin Schweitzer, owner of Vintage Rock-A-Feller Cigars Group, and Victor De La Cruz of Tabacalera L&V S.R.L., the factory where the cigar is being produced. Of note, De La Cruz was one of the founding supervisors of Tabacos Dominicanos, or TABADOM, the factory that became the home of Davidoff.

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.
