It's bonfire season!
One of our favorite things to do in the Fall is to sit outside on a cool evening and enjoy a cigar around the bonfire with friends and family.
It's even better in our custom bonfire ring.
There is something about the crisp, clean air with the bonfire roaring that enhances the cigar smoking experience.
November is always ...
The Marco V Black Sapphire uses the best tobacco in the world from a small, hidden farm in Jalapa, Nicaragua. The tobacco for the Black Sapphire is hand-selected in the curing barn by our master blender to ensure the absolute best quality smoke and flavor like no other. The Black Sapphire is a full-bodied, flat, rectangular pressed, torpedo.
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.
Summer is in full swing and we have had some really unique and exciting events since we last connected.
We made a stop out to the Chateau St. Croix Winery and did an event that featured our cigars and our wine. If you haven't heard about our award winning wine or port, definitely check it out here.
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.
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.
Now we head into Fall which is our favorite time of the year. We kick this fall off with an Oktoberfest Celebration at the Chateau St. Croix Winery during two weekends in October. At this event we will be showcasing all of our cigars and offering a free cigar for every bottle of Marco V Red or Marco V Port that is purchased.
