Editor’s Note: This week, the 2013 list of new releases will be updated, it’s a task and one that we’ve been a bit relaxed on launching, but by Friday a pretty good synopsis of what we know about will be out. It’s been a quiet January in terms of shipped releases, more so than the past two years, but it’s only a matter of time.

I have written about the cigar industry for more than a decade, covering everything from product launches to regulation to M&A. In addition, I handle a lot of the behind-the-scenes stuff here at halfwheel. I enjoy playing tennis, watching boxing, falling asleep to the Le Mans 24, wearing sweatshirts year-round and eating gyros. echte liebe.
