Nearly two years ago, Habanos S.A. announced a limited edition humidor release created in celebration of the 25th anniversary of La Casa del Habano stores. This week, the cigars have begun arriving in Switzerland, as Intertabak AG, the country’s distributor of Habanos S.A. products, confirmed to halfwheel that the humidors have been delivered to the LCDHs in its region.


Inside each humidor are two special edition sizes of the La Gloria Cubana blend, a Pirámides (6 1/10 x 52) and Robustos Extra (6 7/10 x 48). There are 15 of each cigar included in the humidor, with a total of 3,500 humidors produced and available exclusively through La Casa del Habano locations, which is reflected by way of the secondary band that the cigars wear.

Each humidor was carved in fine woods by Cuban artisans in the shape of a colonial styled house, with colors that complement those of La Casa del Habano stores.


In Switzerland, the humidor sells for 1,500 Swiss Francs, or roughly $1,500.

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.
