Luciano Cigars announces a new cigar line, Foreign Affair, launching at the 2023 Total Product Expo in Las Vegas. The new cigar was carefully blended as an ode to the globalization of the cigar industry and its smokers, to the capacity we have of connecting with one another by experiencing a great cigar together.
This reverence found between premium tobacco, passion, and the relationships built from them was also reflected in the friendship between Luciano Meirelles, Frank Cossio (Co-founder of Astorian Cigar Co.), and Mike Dounoulis (Luciano Cigars’ Regional Sales Manager & Co-founder of Astorian Cigar Co.). The trio worked on the cigar for over a year, led by Cossio’s attentive palate, Dounoulis’ creativity, and Meirelles’ blending complexity. At the end of this journey, Foreign Affair is a cigar designed to appeal to the differing perceptions of all smokers.
“The idea was to convey the unique and transcendent connection we experience in the shared space of smoke, cigars, and people. This cigar to me is emblematic of the relationships and bonds we’re able to build in our industry.” Mike Dounoulis, Luciano Cigars Florida Sales Manager & Co-founder of Astorian Cigar Co.
