Patina was back at the 2023 PCA Convention & Trade Show as part of the Sutliff Tobacco booth, as Sutliff distributes Patina’s cigars along with a handful of other companies, including Casa Turrent, Matilde, Eighty5 Cigars and others.

That meant that the Patina booth was effectively a black bookcase that displayed the company’s portfolio of cigars, which includes the Patina Connecticut, Patina Habano, Patina Habano and Patina Sumatra.

While there was nothing new at the show this year, Patina has a number of things in the pipeline, including a new line that is slated for release in 2024, as well as projects that Mo Maali described as being in their infancy, including potential line extensions, retailer-specific project and others.

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 previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
