From the picture of the WLP St. Patrick’s, production appears to be 175 bundles of 25 cigars, for a total run of 4,375 cigars and the largest production of the WLP St. Patrick’s in its three year history. 2011 saw 100 bundles of 25 produced while 2012 yielded 150 bundles of 25.

It also appears to be a 5 x 52 vitola, the same as last year’s and bigger than the original 5 x 50 size.

Little was disclosed about the return of the Honey & Hand Grenades, other than the 6 1/4 x 50 vitola named ‘The Shiv’ is returning. Two other vitolas were part of the line’s initial release, a 5 1/4 x 52 called ‘The Shank’ and a 6 1/2 x 44 called ‘The Rapier,’ which was reviewed on halfwheel.

Andre Farkas also posted pictures of the Honey & Hand Grenades box to his personal Facebook page with a note that the “bees fly Monday” and that he was “digging the packaging.” Numerous retailers complained about the packaging of the original release of the Honey & Hand Grenades line, saying that they had to pry the lids off, having been nailed shut with roofing nails, often ruining the boxes in the process.

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, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
