As many of you know, we’ve had a variety of server issues of late. While the website has largely remained up, some features haven’t been working, including on the back-end. One of them is The Newsletter, which also happens to be our most deserving server actions. We’ve reinstalled the software, made some tweaks and the August version of The Newsletter will go out today.

The July newsletter featured a giveaway of a box of Cabaiguan WCD 120 REDUXs from the 2013 batch. The winner is: gruntman@****.com.

I am an editor and co-founder of halfwheel.com/Rueda Media, LLC. I previously co-founded and published TheCigarFeed, one of the two predecessors of halfwheel. 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.
