Stogie Guys Friday Sampler No. 394

8 Aug 2014

As we have since July 2006, each Friday we’ll post a mixed bag of quick cigar news and other items of interest. Below is our latest Friday Sampler.

Gran Habano1) Gran Habano this week issued a press release claiming the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has taken issue with the company’s name. The government says “the brand name ‘Gran Habano’ is misleading the public to think we are selling cigars from Cuba. We all in the cigar industry know that this is not true… All retail locations know that Gran Habano products are not manufactured in Cuba and are grown in Honduras and Nicaragua, as all labels on Gran Habano cigars state.” Gran Habano is asking retailers and customers to send in their comments to help the company dispute this claim. If you would like to help, please email us, and we’ll provide you with the Word document form that declares you understand Gran Habano is not a Cuban cigar company.

2) There is no tomorrow to oppose to the FDA’s attempt to effectively regulate new handamde cigars out of existence. Leave your comment here. (Need help figuring out what to say? See our tip here.)
