Editor’s Note: It was a bit quiet during the latter half of the week, that was my fault. I was in Dortmund, Germany for the Inter-tabac trade show and largely without internet. There wasn’t a whole lot of new products, although there was a few, but more on that later in the week.
- Oliva Viejo Mundo — New for the European market. These are Dutch dry cigars.
- Paul Garmirian Comments on New School Makers — Comments are here.
- Cohiba Pirámides Extra Ships — This happened before last week, but here’s the official notice of shipment via a Habanos S.A. press release.
- Montecristo 520 Edición Limitada 2012 — Also nearing release. Press release here.
- AVO 25th Anniversary Ships — Press release here. Review here.
- Big Star Cigar Lounge Opens — The new shop of Scott Partridge. Press release here.
- Ben Lee Joins Stogie Review — Not sure I’d call it an empire, but Ben Lee has finally left Nice Tight Ash, settling on Stogie Review.
