PCA 2021: Bocock Brothers Premium Cigars

Null

While this might come as a surprise, Bocock Brothers Premium Cigars is owned and operated by two brothers, Bryant and Douglas Bocock. While modest in size, as many first-year attendees’ booths go, it was well laid out with plenty of branding to let you know who they were and a well-lit display case showing off their cigars and Bocock Brothers branded golf apparel.

The company got its start after Bryant co-owned and managed a nightclub in Honduras where he had added a walk-in humidor. The humidor proved to be a hit, and with it, he was introduced to the world of cigars and the experiences they offered his customers. After the club closed, Bryant moved back to the U.S. where he shared the idea of a cigar brand with his brother, and thus Bocock Brothers Premium Cigars was born.

San Andrés vs Corojo

An upcoming project from the company which was not on display at the show is the San Andrés vs Corojo blends. It will feature two blends, one from each of the brothers, and should be arriving in early 2022. Not many other details were available yet as it was still a work in progress, but they are expecting to debut it at the 2022 Tobacco Plus Expo.

About the author

I have been smoking cigars since 2005 and reviewing them as a hobby since 2010. Initially, I started out small with a 50-count humidor and only smoking one or two cigars a month. Not knowing anybody else that smoked cigars, it was only an occasional hobby that I took part in. In March of 2010, I joined Nublive and Cigar Asylum, connecting me with many people who also shared an interest in cigars. Reading what they had to say about brands I had never heard of, I quickly immersed myself in the boutique brands of the industry and it was then that cigars transformed from a hobby into a passion.
