Valeroso to Launch Primavera at IPCPR Debut


Among the cigars debuting at this week’s IPCPR Convention and Trade Show is the Valeroso Primavera, a cigar being made at Manuel Quesada’s MATASA factory in the Dominican Republic.

The new line has already been made available to a handful of retailers, but the entire industry will get a look at the eight vitola line at this year’s trade show. The Valeroso Primavera is being offered in a Toro, Churchill, Lancero, Lonsdale, Corona, Robusto, Robusto Extra and Torpedo, with prices ranging from $8 – $10 per cigar. There are plans to add two more sizes at the end of the year to the regular production line.

About the author

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.
