This month we are featuring our Marco V La Canela Lancero. This cigar is my go to cigar in the morning with a cup of coffee but also a fantastic cigar if you want to taste the sweetness of our our shade grown wrapper. You can read more about the La Canela below and look for our Monthly Newsletter with a coupon code.
Marco V is the entrepreneur, the engineer, the visionary, the late night notebook idea, the side hustler who has that extra drive and motivation to make a difference in the world. Marco V is not the rich guy who has made it but the grinder trying to get there.
We received a question on how we create the unique "Marco V" flavor that is common within our blends. The answer is in the blending of the unique tobaccos. We take a lot pride in how we create our unique blends. It all starts by using the best grade A tobacco from the best tobacco growing regions in the world.
Its hard to believe it is already March! Time absolutely flies. That is a great reminder to take time to enjoy a cigar. Every March we head down to Marco Island, Florida to escape the winter. Marco Island is a special place to us as that is where the inspiration for Marco V was born. You can read about that special spot here:
As we reflect on the year and look forward to the last 3 months of 2021, I am proud of the way Marco V has established its presence as a staple in cigar enthusiast's humidors. The cross section of quality and value for Marco V Cigars is unrivaled in the cigar industry. We are able to do this through vertical integration which essentially means that we control the supply chain from seed to smoke. This is important to us as we can monitor the quality at every step and make sure everything is done right.
Last month was a big milestone for Marco V Cigars. We not only qualified for a rating with Cigar Aficionado (which requires 200 brick and mortar retailers nationally carrying your cigar) but received two 90 ratings! The 90 rating falls within the Cigar Aficionado scale of "Outstanding".
From the seeds to the nine-foot-tall tobacco plants, every step is monitored by our Marco V's agricultural experts. Each tobacco leaf section produces a slightly different flavor, so leaves are harvested in small groups to precisely select the flavor of each part of the cigar.
It has been a blessing to get back to doing events again. That personal connection and being able to talk about cigars face to face is second to none. This past month we were in Boston, Chicago, Wisconsin, Las Vegas and of course our home state of Minnesota.
It's hard to believe May is already here. Golf courses have opened and people are itiching to get out and enjoy the weather. Because of this we have established mulitple types of places where you can find Marco V's in addition to your local Tobacconist.
After 11 years of business, March 2021 was our biggest month on record. This is a big feat based on the fact that March is a Winter month. Our reach across the country and Internationally continues to grow as people continue to find value in our 3 portfolios.
This month we are excited to fully launch our Privato collection online. The highest quality Marco V tobacco is classified as Privato. These limited cigars come from our factory in Jalapa, Nicaragua which is home to the best tobacco in the world and has soil almost identical to Cuba. Check out our collection here: Marco V Privato Collection
With 2020 in the rear view mirror, 2021 has gotten off to a great start. More and more of you are finding value in our products and more humidors around the country are finding space on their shelves for Marco Vs.
