Davidoff has announced the release of The Raconteur, an extension for its Winston Churchill line. “Raconteur” is a French word used to refer to skillful storytellers, and this Raconteur cigar pays homage to Winston Churchill’s abilities as a wordsmith by including various quotations of his on the cigar’s second band.

“With all of my great grandfather’s achievements, it was his ability to be a great Raconteur, while meeting and dining with people, that he was able to persuade others to realise his objectives,” said Randolph Churchill, Sir Winston’s great-grandson, in a press release issued by Davidoff.

Here’s how Davidoff’s release describes the cigar’s profile: “Nutty flavours give way to an instant creaminess that imbues the cigar until the very end. The intense, complex aroma, the roasted notes and hints of pepper, oakwood and leather echo the other Winston Churchill cigars, but this cigar has more intensity of flavour.”

The blend comprises tobaccos from Ecuador, Mexico, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic, including a 15-year-old San Vicente ligero from the Dominican Republic in the filler blend. The Raconteur is a 6 x 56 Gran Toro, and production has been limited to 6,000 boxes of 10, with prices set at $27.90 per cigar ($279 for a box) and release.

The Danno is set to kick off with an exclusive event series hosted by Nestor Miranda

(Miami, Florida) June 1, 2015— Miami Cigar & Company proudly announces the unveiling of the much awaited “Nestor Miranda Collection Danno” cigar. The Danno is a limited edition off-shoot, of the Nestor Miranda Collection which pays homage, to Nestor Miranda’s late son, Daniel Luis Miranda, who passed away in 2008.

The 2015 NMC Danno, which will be unveiled through a sneak peak “event series,” will fall in-line with the newly rebranded Nestor Miranda Collection. The new visual identity has been well embraced, along with its accompanying tagline #OneLife. The message of the brand has inspired many supporters, to enjoy life and of course, a great smoke.

Only 3,000 boxes of the Danno will be produced, divided into three wrappers. The components of the blends have stayed consistent with this year’s NMC brands, but the percentages of each have changed, to help perfectly balance the blend in this vitola.

Nestor Miranda said, “As you all can imagine, the Danno cigar holds a very special place in my heart, and I am very excited to be releasing it under the new NMC brand. This cigar has always been the epitome of my brand, and I am so proud to present you with our newest version.”

The NMC Danno comes in at a hefty 7 x 56, and 1000 boxes per wrapper below:

Connecticut: Ecuadorian CT wrapper 
Habano: Nicaraguan Habano wrapper
Maduro: Broadleaf Maduro wrapper 

Nestor Miranda will host a six event tour beginning on June 12th which will allow the public a sneak peak at the 2015 NMC Danno.

Viva Republica announces limited-edition Jailbreak cigar


Jason Holly, president of Viva Republica, has announced the launch of a new, limited edition cigar named Jailbreak.

The cigar, measuring 6 x 58, has two wrappers (Dominican Corojo and Ecuadorian Habano), an undisclosed double-binder, and a filler that features 10 different tobaccos. What separates this cigar from the others, according to a press release issued by Viva Republica, is that there’s a fully rolled and aged lancero in the center of each cigar (although, at 6 inches in length, that core cigar is really more of a petit lancero).

“Jailbreak is a new concept in where a lancero is buried inside of a 6 x 58 cigar trying to escape,” said Holly in the press release. “I decided to create this unique cigar in dedication to my stepfather who recently retired as a superintendent of the Dallas State Correctional Institution.”

Viva Republica is releasing a total of 300 20-count boxes of Jailbreak, which is set to retail at $12.50 per cigar. Jailbreak will be shipping later this week.

Jailbreak will be made available through Miami Cigar & Co., the American distributor of Viva Republica.
