Weekly news week 47 2019. On Sunday, we wrote about the four different cigar lounges of the Dutch capital of Amsterdam. The largest city in the country of The Netherlands has four, including two that sell cigars from one single country, Cigaragua and La Casa del Habano. And we reviewed the Steenbok Robusto plus the Dondurma Toro. A cigar from Honduras and one from Nicaragua.

The news

The latest cigar knife from Les Fines Lames, the small Le Petit, will be available at German tobacco stores. The Habanos distributor 5th Avenue and Les Fines Lames signed a distribution agreement. Cigare 77 found a distributor in Sweden for their Skull 77 cigars. The Cigar Club is hosting a big event in Malaysia. Henk is coming to Malaysia as well for an event at The Cabinet. And there’s a J.C. Newman tasting in Bratislava, Slovakia.

Cuba saw the release of a brand new regional edition. The San Cristobal de la Habana La Cabaña. This robusto extra-sized cigar is the first San Cristobal de la Habana release in the Regional Edition program in 14 years. And New Zealand is getting a lot of new cigars as well.

The Henk Cigarbone is officially released, in limited production and limited colors for now. But the best news this week came from Steve Saka. The silicone breasts he wore at the drag cigar event raised over $6500 for charity.

A unique ashtray

German engineering and cigars, that sounds like a mismatch but it’s not. The German company Rauchvergnügen has been on the market for a few years in their home country. The cigars are made in the Dominican Republic. But they are getting ready for new markets. And they released a unique ashtray, 3d printed with the latest technology. The inspiration for the design was found in tobacco leaves. And leave it to the Germans and their engineering to come up with something very special.
