Political unrest is forcing the organizers of the Nicaraguan Cigar Festival to postpone their 8th annual Puro Sabor program. They released the following statement:
Dear Cigar Enthusiasts, Partners and Friends:
Since 2008, we’ve come together at the Nicaraguan Cigar Festival ‘Puro Sabor’ to celebrate the success of our tobacco and cigars, and to pay tribute to our workers and the land that has given us so many blessings: Nicaragua. In the past seven editions of ‘Puro Sabor’, many of you have enjoyed the richness of our culture and heritage, and have deeply connected with our people. Our intention has always been to make sure that you keep coming back for more!
With a heavy heart, we announce that the 8th Edition of ‘Puro Sabor’, originally set for January 2019, is postponed for reasons beyond our control. New dates for the festival will be announced in due time. In turn, we will continue to celebrate our industry in a special event to be held on January 26th 2019, in Miami, Florida, with all our members and partners. The specific details surrounding this event will be published soon.
In the meantime, our companies continue to honor the strong commitment of producing the best quality cigars in the world, and delivering a unique smoking experience, while contributing to the wellbeing of Nicaragua and its people.
The Members of the Nicaraguan Chamber of Tobacco
