In case you missed it, The Big Papi himself made an appearance in our booth at the largest cigar trade show in the U.S., IPCPR. He signed hundreds of autographs on limited edition posters for retailers and fans alike. The turnout at IPCPR was impressive, but certainly not surprising; people love David. However, the love we received on how well the Big Papi cigar performs at retail was impressive. We know the cigar is great, it’s nice to hear people agree.
Enthusiasm has steadily grown for the cigar since its launch last year. IPCPR 2017 was just a sample of the love we’ve experienced at retail shops and events. Social media is where we see the most love. El Artista fans, reviewers and writers all over the web say so many nice things, we are now convinced this isn’t just a special blend: it’s a movement.
Baseball fans fall in love with the Big Papi cigar the moment they see it. From the red and white box, to the little red sock on the foot it’s eye catching for sure. Yet, it’s the light and draw that separates a pretty cigar from a pretty great cigar. Once it’s lit, the next hour becomes all about the cigar.
Folks ask us many questions, but the one recurring question people ask is simply: “Where can I buy this cigar?”
We always want to direct them to a local shop. If it’s not available locally, we tell fans to ask the shop owner call us directly. Shop owners are more likely to carry a product when they know there are already fans for it. And there are millions of Big Papi fans!
Our fans are so talented and they demonstrate their love for Big Papi every day: Here’s a sampling of some social media posts we’ve seen:
Wow! People really are talented.
If you want to create your own Big Papi posts, but it’s not in your local shop maybe you can help. Here’s the number to give your favorite shop owner so he can inquire about a purchase:
Remember, we don’t sell to the public so only a licensed tobacconist should call.
