While Hiram & Solomon used the 2019 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show to show off its Grand Architect line, the company is concentrating on its retail partners and its existing releases during this year’s PCA Convention & Trade Show.

There was plenty of action in the Hiram & Solomon booth, which featured a new layout and the addition of a large television showing a rotating series of short promos about its products. The company was also featuring Live2Serve, a collaboration with Operation: Cigars for Warriors that was released in May.

NullDrew Estate is the official sponsor of halfwheel's coverage of the 2021 PCA Convention & Trade Show.

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
