Despite the announcement earlier this year that parent company, Imperial Brands, is looking to sell off its premium cigar assets—including Altadis USA—the booth appeared to be operating without a hiccup at this year’s show.

Updates to the company’s large portfolio primarily consisted of five brands: Montecristo, Trinidad, H. Upmann, Henry Clay, and Aging Room.

Trinidad Espiritu marks the first significant returned emphasis on the Trinidad brand in some time, featuring a vintage Caribbean theme and a hearty profile brought on through the use of a Nicaraguan puro recipe—prodiced at A.J. Fernández’s factory in Estelí.

Henry Clay

Henry Clay had the War Hawk on display—a cigar that began shipping before the show, yet has proven to be a hit for the brand.

Aging Room Bin No. 2

Aging Room Bin No. 2 is a Nicaraguan-focused blend that is being produced at the famed Plasencia Cigars factory in Estelí. Brand-runner, Rafael Nodal, partnered with the Plasencia family, selecting tobaccos primarily from their farms on Nicaragua’s Ometepe island. The cigars incorporate entirely Nicaraguan leaves, with three available sizes priced in the $13 range.
