Weekly news week 7 2020. For the last few months, Ministry of Cigars did an irregular Facebook Live with a couple of friends. And we decided to post the video’s on our website too. Last Sunday we posted the third episode, which was shot a few months ago. If you have an hour and a half to spare to listen about a few guys talking cigars and spitting jokes, go watch. And we published our second article about cigar charities. This time the Habanos festival auction was the subject.
Reviews and news
The reviews this week came from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. We reviewed the San Pedro de Macoris Nicaragua Corona. This is a budget-friendly cigar from Royal Agio. The second cigar we reviewed was the La Madrina by Dapper Cigar Company. A Nicaraguan cigar made at NACSA under the watchful eye of Raul Disla.
Adventura is adding The Netherlands and Sweden to their list of countries where the brand is distributed. Kelch Trading is their partner for The Netherlands while Kind Cigars will release the cigars in Sweden. PDR updated the packaging for the El Trovador, A. Flores 1975 Half Corona Tins, and the Jose Rey lines. Kelch Trading is also the distributor for Blanco Cigars. And David Blanco will visit The Netherlands for an event in Eindhoven. Room 101 is expending the Big Payback Maduro.
