Daily Wire host Michael Knowles is launching a cigar line called Mayflower Cigars, unveiling the new venture on his daily podcast.
The cigars are produced in Esteli, Nicaragua, and are created by Knowles and designers at Oliva Cigar Co. Daily Wire’s launch of Mayflower Cigars follows the creation of other Daily Wire brands like Jeremy’s Razors and Jeremy’s Chocolate. Knowles said in the podcast that cigars had played a major role in his life, from helping to get him into college to landing a show with The Daily Wire.
“Cigars are among the few things I’ve loved longer than my wife, whom I first started dating in high school,” Knowles said. “An essay on my love of cigars helped get me into college. A cigar review convinced The Daily Wire to give me a show. From the moment a family friend gave me my first cigar — a machine-made Cuban — I fell in love with the whole affair: the flavor, of course, but also the ritual and, most of all, the culture.”
