Micallef Cigars has announced that as of Jan. 2, 2020, it will be increasing the prices of its cigars by five percent across all of its lines.

“Regulatory and economic changes continue to increase operating costs in our domestic and Nicaraguan operations, which we can no longer continue to absorb,” the company wrote in a press release. The company said that the increase will allow them to continue producing cigars that they are proud to bear the Micallef name.

The company went on to express its gratitude for the support of its customers. “We are committed to growing a heritage business with our retail partners, in these exciting and ever-changing times. Our commitment remains, to build cigars our customers and ambassadors love.”

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 MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
