What started last year with the inaugural Tweetup event at Burns Tobacconist (@burnstobacco99) and was put together by the hard work of David Jones (@dmjones1009) tikibaronline.com has grown into the massive event that is expected to converge on Chattanooga on August 24th and August 25th. To commemorate the united voice of cigar smokers on Twitter Emilio Cigars and Miami Cigar & Co. have joined forces to release a limited edition set.
The cedar box of 2 cigars will contain a cigars made just for this historic event. The Añoranza in a box-pressed Churchill, and the debut of La Musa Melete from Emilio cigars in the same format. These sizes will be limited to 300 boxes of 2.
Gary Griffith (@emiliocigar) states, “We are delighted to be releasing this joint project with Miami Cigar and Co., dear industry friends, on behalf of Burns Tobacconist, one of the finest retailers in the country. We chose this opportunity to release this special size of the new La Musa Melete blend, and as the first appearance of the blend on the market.”
In their second year supporting the Tweet-Up, Jason Wood (@miamicigar) VP of Miami Cigar adds, “Cigar smokers on twitter have become a driving voice in the industry. These aficionados are passionate about our craft, and we wanted to share with them something special.”

Bob and I just returned from an amazing cigar tourism trip to Nicaragua led by Colin Ganley of CigarTourism.com. Some things that stood out for me on the trip were being able to see in person what “hecho a mano” really meant: the unbelievably complicated and time consuming cigar making process that is totally accomplished by hand; the testing and quality control that goes into getting a good tobacco crop and blending a good smoke; the fact that some cigars were so complex that they could only be rolled by a single artisan in the factory; the passion and commitment each cigar maker had for creating a great cigar and their willingness to share their passion and knowledge with us; and, of course, the opportunity to try so many cigars that I had never smoked before.
