Jonathan Walsh – Territory: Metro NYC, NJ, Eastern PA
Paper Tiger is a term for those that “talk the talk, but don’t walk the walk”. Conversely, the “do what you say and say what you do” attitude was instilled upon Jonathan at a young age by his father. Jonathan’s goal is for enthusiasts to relax with Paper Tiger and block out all the noise. Paper Tiger features a Brazilian wrapper, Mexican binder, with fillers from Pennsylvania and Nicaragua.
Christopher Carey- Territory: SC, GA, AL, MS, Eastern AR, KY, TN
Always the dapper gentlemen, Christopher Carey makes a splash every time he enters the room. According to Christopher, the goal for Fashionably Late was to make well balanced cigar to pair with morning coffee or a great evening whiskey. Fashionably Late features a Brazilian wrapper, Mexican binder and all Nicaraguan fillers.
Steve Tucker- Territory: WI, MN, MI, Northern IL, Northern IN
Steve Tucker loves the road life and his passion for cigars is what fuels him. Inspired by a song of a similar name, Highway Child is the perfect cigar for long drives according to Steve. Highway Child features a Brazilian wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and all Nicaraguan fillers.
Ryan Ponist – Territory: Western PA, WV, OH, Southern IN
Corinthian Leather is a specific homage to Ryan Ponist’s evolution in the cigar industry. According to Ryan, the name is also fitting since it is a term synonymous with his territory’s auto industry history. Corinthian Leather features a Honduran wrapper, double binder Honduran/Nicaraguan and fillers from Honduras and Nicaragua.
