April 11, 2012 — We are pleased to announce that production and aging of our Emilio Cigars Draig K Limitado is complete, and the cigars are ready for packaging.

We are still awaiting bands from the printer, and the final version of the box art should be finished this week, so we are setting a tentative release date of June 1, 2012.

These cigars are limited in production, and will be allocated only to retailers who have joined the Emilio Cigars family as of April 30, 2012.

Once we have the cigars in hand our sales representatives will contact their accounts and advise as to how many will be available to each.

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 Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
