Our boutique brand of fine cigars, T.L. Johnson Cigars, debuted at Edwards Pipe & Cigar Shop in Ft. Collins CO on April, 30 2011. With tremendous support from Armondo Monge, tobacconist, and the membership of his Lounge, the event was an enormous success.
Clay Carlton, Master Cigar Roller, was on hand to demonstrate the art of rolling our fine cigars, and was a big hit as more than 40 people were on hand to see him work his magic. Many of the people at the event were mesmerized with the craftsmanship and the care taken when rolling a cigar, and found Clay’s fresh rolled cigars to be an interesting experience when compared to the standard production cigar. Clay demonstrated his talent by rolling both the T.L. Johnson and Palma brand of fine cigars.
Drawings and Gifts were given away to those who attended and included bottles of wine, hats, several “Five Packs” of T.L. Johnson Cigars, and even a full box of cigars for good measure.
The event was a great opportunity for us to announce some of the additions that we’ve made to the T.L. Johnson Team. Alex Johnson has become a leading force in our sales department, and Randy Shorman will now be heading up the marketing and product development of our boutique brands and managing our distribution center. These gentlemen will play an important part in building T.L. Johnson Cigars as a luxury brand.
We would like to thank everyone who believed in us and participated in the event at Edwards in support of our boutique brand of T.L. Johnson Cigars, and for their commitment to what makes “Life So Good!”
I want to personally thank Armando Monge of Edwards Pipe & Cigars for his wonderful support of our new company. It has been a pleasure to work with him and we look forward to a long standing relationship with his great shop in the future.
We also want to thank Chris Lester’s BST Bar-B-Que. As always, Chris put together a wonderful spread that everyone always raves about, and this event was no exception. Chris really knows his smoke!
Thanks also need to be mentioned to Blake Seas, Nathan Strauch and the staff at ColorPro for all the support that they have given us with our new venture. Thanks Guys!
Again, a great turnout and wonderful times were had at the debut event at the Edwards Pipe & Cigar Shop. It was an awesome start to our new boutique line of cigars, and we know we will have a long enjoyable future in the cigar business with such tremendous support.
