Weekly news week 3 2021. China is producing everything. From the garlic that most of us eat to the cellphones that most of us use.

As always Ministry of Cigars published two reviews. The first review is coming from Nicaragua. It is the El Viejo Continente Maduro Lancero. A classic, elegant size. A size that we love, but it is a hard find these days. Nowadays bigger ring gauges are more popular. The second cigar comes from La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate. It is the medium filler Nasty Fritas from the Liga Privada series.
This week was all quiet from the western front. The only news from America is that Tarazona Cigars expands its operations with a new regional sales manager and a Vice President of International Sales and Development. Line of Duty Cigars and Blanco Cigars settle their differences. The rest of the news is all from Asia and Europe. The Asian news comes from South East Asia, where Pacific Cigar Company is releasing the Bolivar Belicosos Finos Reserva Cosecha 2016. And from Western Asia, as a third La Casa del Habano opens in Israel.
The European news comes from Perdomo. Perdomo is entering the French market and the Belgian market. ACE Prime is also heading to France. Hiram & Solomon is coming to the United Kingdom after signing a distribution agreement with Bright Leaf Distributors Ltd. And the cigars are most likely available at the brand new C.Gars Ltd Flagship store in the epicenter of the London cigar scene at St. James Street. A beautiful tradition continues for J. Cortes. It is not uncommon in the cigar industry that several generations work for the same company, and Cortes just continues that tradition. And Germany re-evaluated the tobacco act. As a result, cigars can’t be sold in jars and humidors anymore. This is the Weekly news week 3 2021
