America's oldest premium cigar maker is an incomparable American tale of industry and the immigrant experience
The J.C. Newman Cigar Company is America's oldest family-owned premium cigar maker and the last operating cigar factory in Tampa. At its peak, Tampa's cigar industry made more than half a billion cigars annually, more than were made in Cuba. "This used to be the NapaValley of the cigar industry," says Bobby Newman, co-owner of the company with his brother, Eric. In decades past, if a cigar bore a Tampa-made stamp, cigar smokers deemed it quality. Preferences change; today's cigar smokers expect a premium cigar to be made outside the US altogether.

After another busy Saturday doing things like covering the pool, moving furniture and chasing the dog all over creation, I decided to finish the day with the Brick House Mighty Mighty Maduro from the IPCPR trade show. I had managed to get an appointment with Shanda Lee, J.C. Newman‘s Vice President of Marketing, and she gave me the tour of their booth.She didn’t really want to be on video, so I shot the products she was talking about. They have some beautiful humidors and accessories that are features in the first part of the video, and some tasty smokes in the second half. It’s a little longer than I generally like, but Shanda was very thorough and generous with her time and information. I appreciate the fact that she took the time to talk to me.To continue reading and see Craig's video tour please visit the Cigar Craig website by clicking here.
