Due in part to the unique design of its booth, Wildfire Cigar Co. made a splash during its debut at last year’s PCA Convention & Trade Show. That design simulated a campsite in the woods, complete with a faux campfire, real pans, faux tree stumps made of florists’ foam, real sticks, and a bear suit.

This year, the company changed things up a bit with its booth design, albeit keeping with the camping theme. The campsite in the woods was replaced by an actual camper, lawn chairs and a picnic table sitting on faux grass. However, the bear from last year was back, albeit inside the camper instead of outside.

The company’s new regular production line is being made by Fábrica de Tabacos Joya de Nicaragua S.A., the same factory that made the company’s first two releases.


This release from Wildfire shares its name with Celtic words that could reference a bear-god or the Roman god Mercury.

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.
