It will be a good year for fans of La Tradicion Cubana, as company owner Luis M. Sanchez told halfwheel that he is reducing prices at least 10% for all of his lines.

Sanchez said that the decrease comes as an attempt to help the stores that have supported him by making his products more affordable.

He also mentioned that he will be adding a new line and relaunching one of his former lines in the coming months.

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 the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
