Padilla and Oliva expected to make new cigar

  • Announced Oliva Cigar Company’s Studio Tobac is going to collabrate with Padilla Cigars to make a limited-edition, single-size cigar releasing in August. This cigar will have 1,000 boxes of 10, be made from Nicaraguan puro, and will be figurado. Good Fellas will report more on this in the future when we hear more.

 

Cigar Tax Cap Rejected

  • This week in New York lawmakers passed a $132.5 billion budget and fortunately threw out a tax proposal that was going to add a $1 tax cap on a single cigar.  This part of the bill failed to gain support due to the lobbying of the International Premium Cigars & Pipe Retailers, Cigar Rights of America, Cigar Association of America, and state-level retailer association.We here at Good Fellas highly support these groups and thank them for all their efforts in making sure our love of cigars never disappears.
