Hmm… the news. On Wednesday, I broke some news regarding the second (and unreleased) batch of Nosotros, or Nosotros “seconds” as some like to refer to them. I also asked some questions going into next year, and told the world about Altadis’ inquiry into Drew Estate. And on Monday… I don’t really have anything to break.

CAO’s headquarters in Nasheville was closed on Friday, that means the last day for Tim Ozgener and Jon Huber. Neither have discussed any future plans in the cigar industry, the former did however say he’d like to focus on his bar. Viaje’s next limited release, the Samurai, lands in Minnesota’s Tobacco Grove later today. The 6 x 48 sticks are a special size of the Platino blend and limited to sixty boxes. Cuban Crafters opened up a store in Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. Speaking of other stores and just because there hasn’t been enough Davidoff news coverage in the past week, Davidoff has announced the location of its new flagship store.

I promise a return to normalcy, including a rare Oliva review later this week, haha. In the mean time, Happy Holidays from La Aurora and Miami Cigar & Co..
