After teasing a picture of it on their Facebook page, Kuuts, LLC has confirmed plans to release a Miró Maduro at the 2014 IPCPR Convention and Trade Show.

According to Gabriel Alvarez, the company’s operations manager, the blend is still yet to be finalized and the name may change to something more distinctive than simply “Miró Maduro,” but the plan is to have it ready for next year’s annual industry gathering. He said the company is aiming to have it ready to ship immediately following the event.

Alvarez also mentioned that the company is looking at expanding the Miró line in the coming years to include several offshoots, as well as working on other new releases for 2014, including what should be the first cigar to bear the Kuuts name.

Update (June 25, 2014) — According to Alvarez, the Miró Maduro project has been put on hold and will not appear at the 2014 IPCPR 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.
