Brought to you by J.C. Newman Cigar Co. – This week Matt and Nicole are joined by Sam Ventura of Crux Cigars. They talk about their not so well first encounter at PCA 2021 and Matt compares the aftermath to the way Matt and William Cooper met and went on to work together.
Sam talks about the new Epicure Habano from Crux that was shown at PCA 2022 and will be coming out soon. He talks about the rebranding and packaging that was done a few years ago and how that has dramatically helped the presentation of the Crux brand on store shelves.
In the news brought to you by Micallef Cigars, we talk about the breakup between Crowned Heads and Luciano Cigars (formerly Ace Prime).
The Room101 Top Three shows us what three cocktails the former bartender Sam calls his all-time favorites.
