Kaplowitz Media Cigar News Weekly Report: AJ Fernandez & Jochy Blanco, Drew Estate Acid, & Emilio Cigars Grimalkin Halloween Ed.

"All the news that's fit to poach."


AJ FERNANDEZ + JOCHY BLANCO

= SAN LOTANO DOMINICANO. AJF -- Abdel Fernandez -- he is everywhere & then-some these days. From collabs w/ the famed to house blends to the sticks w/ AJF bands, if you smoke cigars... you smoke his. Now, a new collab has been announced: one w/ Jochy Blanco.

Blanco has teamed up w/ AJ to birth a new San Lotano named The Dominicano. Jochy is reowned via La Galera and Tabacalera Palma & the San Lotano brand was Fernandez’s opening foray for his new (2010) company. The Dominicano will join the Requiem & Oval at the line's core. Apart from all that lil bit, details are nada as of this report, mi amigo/a.

DREW ESTATE ACID CARTEL SUBCULTURE

DE's ACID Cartel Subculture. intro'd in 2007 and de-marketed since will now return as an exclusivo of Michigan's JML Wholesale. (JML owns Wild Bill's Tobacco and their ~80 stores. [Yee-haw!!!])

The stick will be available in a single Robusto vitola, and as prior will feature a CT Shade top-leaf, super-secret binder/filler. A 24ct. box will set ya back a cool ~240 bucks and while the manufacturer has supplied notes -- I will provide my own thoughts re: aroma, thank-you...

EMILIO GRIMALKIN HALLOWEEN EDITION

Emilio Cigars shone their spotlight on their new Maduro iteration of their Grimalkin line at IPCPR 2018. Now the Emilio Grimalkin Halloween Edition is (be)headed to market (HOW GHOULISH). Select retailers will soon humi-shelve the Robusto formatted thing in 25ct. boxes carrying a per uno stick-o 9.75USD MSRP. It's a Nica puro addition to the line which first dropped in 2011. Then some other stuff happened which I'm far to engaged in #leastmode to relay.

2018 (limited) production is happening over at James Brown's Fabrica Oveja Negra. Brown's own Black Label Trading Company and Black Works Studio brands are distributed by Boutiques Unified, as are Emilio Cigars.
