Crowds of people at General Cigar

It was almost impossible to get through at the General Cigar booth – of course, the company has numerous brands and therefore many new products.
Nevertheless, every single brand ambassador took time for a brief chat about the new launches.

And legend Sandy Cobas was the sunshine of the entire booth.
The Boutique cigar maker of El Titán de Bronze has tapped General Cigar to distribute their new Redemption blend. The new blend of Redemption will be distributed exclusively by General Cigar’s sales team and sold to select retail shops by invitation only. The line is not a limited edition and will be available full time following its release in July 2024. The Redemption blend was developed by Sandy Cobas and her daughter Giselle Herrera and is made at the famed El Titán de Bronze Cigar factory.
