Weekly news week 33 2020. In our series on cigar charities, we wrote about Oliva Cigars this week. Oliva Cigars adopted a school near the factory. The Esculo Oliva is financially supported by the cigar manufacturer. The school children get a daily lunch paid for by Oliva and J. Cortes as well.

Ministry of Cigar - Weekly news week 33


We reviewed two cigars as usual. La Sagrada Familia is a Dutch brand, yet made in Esteli, Nicaragua. The La Sagrada Habano Toro opened the week, and a great opener it was. The second review is the Diamond Crown Julius Caeser Toro. A cigar made by Tabacalera A. Fuente y Cia for the J.C. Newman family. 

A new Habanos Terrace opened. In the Algarve, in Portugal. It’s Portugal’s first Habanos Terrace. The Partagas Linea Retro is finally released. Announced several years ago, but the Mareva in retro-style tins are now available in Switzerland. When the cigars are available in other countries is still a mystery. Padilla Cigars is moving the production of the Winston Churchill inspired the Finest Hour to Nicaragua. The cigars were made at an undisclosed factory in Honduras. Tabacalera A.J. Fernandez is the new production facility.

Ministry of Cigars - Second Linea Retro from Habanos finally launched.
