Gran Habano introduced the world’s largest cigar at Famous Smoke’s event over the weekend. Habana Cuba Oliveros makers of Oliveros have increased production close to 350%. Eddie Ortega previewed the new 601 labels, effectively killing the 601 Black. Habanos S.A. introduced the Montecristo Clubs. A new smoking ban in Springfield is threatening cigar shops in the area. If you’d like to actually do something about it, you could join Cigar Rights of America. If you need a shameless bribe, how about 10 premiums for $100.
