And now for the IPCPR 2015 interview everyone knew was coming. I’ve been a big fan of J. Fuego cigars for years, so it was just a matter of time before I stopped in to talk to Jesus Fuego. This year his booth was right on main corridor running down the middle of the trade show floor, which I affectionately named “The Trade Show Mile”. The Trader vic’s vibe was strong in J. Fuego booth, I wanted to order a Mai Tai, decided to take care of the interview first. In this video Jesus talks about the company’s focus on solidifying the core lines, and introduced us to Joey Bravo the National Sales Director. Joey takes over and shows us the repackaged fan-favorite Originals and discusses what a success they have been for the company. Off camera Jesus hinted that we may see a return of an old favorite, the Gran Reserva Corojo No. 1 in sizes other than the Originals.
