Tatuaje Cigars



 Cigars, Wine, Fashion and Music 




My name is Kevin Shahan, and a lot of you may know me as the owner of Irish beard balm.

Like most important tools in life, the Cigar Prop was born from  necessity. I was fooling around in my workshop while enjoying a nice  Camacho cigar, as I’m wont to do.

I faced a major problem: continually having to lay my delicious cigar  down on a filthy work surface. You might be thinking, “Well, why don’t  you clean up your workspace?” The problem is that I’m constantly finding  myself in places where I’m either having to use a dirty ashtray or  worse.

So I took some scrap aluminum and made a little cigar rest. When I took it to my local cigar bar, The Tobacco Locker in Port Charlotte, Florida, a few guys loved them and wanted one. So I made a few.
Then more guys wanted them. And then more, and more and more. So, here  we are today. I want to ensure you never have to lay down your cigar on a  dirty surface again.

I hope you enjoy your cigar prop as much as I enjoy making them for you.

And remember to make sure you give your cigars the props they deserve.

 halfwheel.com launched Jan. 1, 2012. Its content includes the archives  of TheCigarFeed.com and SmokingStogie.com, sites perviously published by  co-founders Charlie Minato and Brooks Whittington. It combined the  obsessive industry news coverage of TheCigarFeed and the in-depth  reviews of SmokingStogie into a singular place for those passionate  about cigars. 


From the first day, we made it clear  halfwheel was going to be a different kind of cigar blog. This is not a  fly-by-night operation (we have an office), this is not a hobby (some  of us do this full-time), this is not our first time (we have worked for  newspapers, radio stations, magazines and more) and this is not just  another cigar blog.

Cigar blogs have gotten a bad rap, largely because there’s never been  a full-time, professional and committed effort. Combined, we visit  dozens of factories every year in Cuba, the Dominican Republic,  Nicaragua and more. We cover more than just IPCPR—we have attended  Inter-tabac, NATO, Tobacco Plus and large cigar festivals.





Contact (Cigar Coop): coop@cigar-coop.com

Cigar Coop was founded in 2010 by Will Cooper. It was originally  designed to be short-term chronicling of the 2010 IPCPR Trade Show. A  decision was made to make it a on-going periodical where cigar reviews  and later cigar news became the focus.

In August 2013, we formed a partnership with Stogie Geeks,  a podcast for cigar enthusiasts. During this time we shared a common  infrastructure for our web-sites and common business operations. We also  featured integrated content.

In January 2017, we ended our partnership with Stogie Geeks  and returned to an independent operation – now with our own IT  infrastructure and business operations. Subsequently we launched two new  podcasts, the Prime Time Show and Prime Time Special Edition.

In an industry built on name recognition  and reputation, Rocky Patel’s passion has brought his luxury brand to  heights unseen by most boutique cigar manufacturers. His hard work and  long hours have been paying off in big ways. A survivor of the cigar  boom, Patel has outlasted his competition with unrivaled persistence on  his quest for perfection. With a grueling travel schedule, office  responsibilities and production, Rocky still maintains the enthusiasm  that he has had since day one. As he travels the world, putting his  cigars in the mouths of his consumers, his passion extends beyond the  retailer, allowing his customers the experience of meeting the man  behind their favorite smokes. Rocky Patel has created a company that  outshines even those created by multimillion dollar corporations, and  he’s doing it one customer at a time.







Our story traces its roots to San  Jose de las Lajas, Cuba, an agricultural and industrial municipality  located 27 kilometers southeast of Havana, where Silvio Perdomo was  raised. He apprenticed first at Cuesta y Cia. in the early 1930’s before  leaving to practice his art at the H. Upmann factory from 1937 to 1945;  and at the famed Partagas factory until 1959.


It is also where his son, Nick  Perdomo, Sr. was born and began his apprenticeship in 1948 at the Marin  & Trujillo factory before earning accolades for his craftsmanship  and making his own way to join his father at Partagas. “Things were  going so well then, my father and I were just beginning to establish  ourselves and obtain recognition for our work,” said Nick, Sr., an  imposing wrecking ball of a man with a soft voice and a heart as big as  his frame. “But then Castro destroyed everything – our country, our  lives and our freedom.”


A quiet and peaceful man  steadfastly opposed to Castro and the communist revolution, Silvio  Perdomo was soon arrested in his own home and quickly tried and  incarcerated in the notorious Isle of Pines prison where he endured his  harshest treatment. Three years later he was transferred to La Cabana, a  murky 18th century fortress overlooking Havana Bay. For the next 12  excruciating years, Silvio suffered through squalid conditions, torture  and near-starvation at La Cabana and four other Cuban prisons.



 We welcome you to our world. At C.L.E. Cigar Company, we’re proud to  present the experience of over 100 years and 3 generations of working  with tobacco through the wonderful selection of our cigars.  Each and  every cigar that we produce is made with precision, care, and  excellence.  

                                                                           Only the finest tobacco is cured to present these  selections to you; and we take the utmost pride in every aspect of  creating each masterpiece from seed to smoke.

The International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association





Home > About IPCPR                 

What is the International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers (IPCPR)?

Founded in 1933, the International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers  Association is a not-for-profit trade association representing premium  retail tobacconists and their suppliers. IPCPR represents over 2,000  retail stores across the United States that sell tobacco products and  accessories, as well as more than 350 manufacturers, distributors, and  service providers of high quality merchandise. All members are fully  committed to preserving the rights of adults to enjoy legal tobacco  products.

What is a premium cigar?

Premium cigars are a handcrafted artisanal product, made with 100%  tobacco. These cigars continue to be made by hand as they have been for  several hundred years.  Much like wine, premium cigar profiles range  from mild to robust with numerous varieties in between. From a seedling,  each premium cigar typically takes 3 – 4 years to produce, allowing  flavor profiles to develop and mature.

Who does IPCPR represent?

IPCPR member stores have a tremendous presence across the nation,  with a presence in every state and Congressional district. Many of IPCPR  members’ businesses are family-owned, spanning several generations.   Each store, on average, employs 5.5 full- and part-time employees.  Nearly two-thirds of these stores have a full-time manager with an  average salary in excess of $36,000. The quintessential IPCPR member’s  store is a small business focusing almost exclusively on cigars,  humidors, cutters, lighters, pipes, and pipe tobaccos, and other related  accessories. IPCPR members’ businesses are adult establishments.

What issues are facing the premium cigar industry?

In 2009, “The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act” was  signed into law, with the intent of curbing youth access to tobacco  products and preventing addiction to tobacco. Premium cigars fit neither  area yet are facing undue regulation from the Food and Drug  Administration (FDA). Legislation in the House (H.R. 662) and Senate (S.  441) will define and exempt premium cigars, helping to preserve tens of  thousands of domestic jobs and hundreds of thousands international  jobs. Our members must have the freedom to sell a legal product without  government interference. At the state and local levels, retailer  tobacconists continue to face tax increases and smoking bans.
