There is nothing new in terms of products from Los Caidos this year, but the company is gearing up for what should be a 2022 that will have a number of new products. This year, though, the focus is on the company’s new distribution agreement with Sutliff Tobacco, which meant it has one of the dozen or so booth spaces inside that booth.

Steve Zengel told halfwheel that the company is continuing to build its foundation with its existing line, while exploring and laying the groundwork for a number of projects that are slated for the 2022 PCA Convention & Trade Show. While he didn’t want to get into too many specifics, he hinted it would not only mean new cigars, but some new events that will be well beyond your typical cigar event.

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.
