Hecho A Mano Newsletter – April 2023

April’s Featured Cigar of the Month:

Allegiance by E.P. Carrillo

For the month of April, Hecho a Mano Cigar Lounge is excited to feature a collaboration between Oliva Cigars and E.P. Carrillo Cigars – the Allegiance distributed by EPC Cigars.

Influenced by its Ecuadorian wrapper, this medium-full Nicaraguan binder and filler blend features a notably sweet and spicy character accented by notes of nutmeg and cinnamon, all driven by a persistent undercurrent of wood. Some gingerbread intonations also emerge before the peppery finish.

We carry three sizes of the Allegiance – The “Sidekick” (5 X 50), “Confidant” (6 X 52) and the “Wingman” (6.875 X 54). The toro-sized Confidant has been rated 94 by Cigar Aficionado.

MLB at Hecho a Mano Cigar Lounge!

Hecho a Mano Cigar Lounge has purchased the MLB Extra Innings Package from DirecTV, which carries every major league game. The MLB Extra Innings Package from DirecTV allows sports fans to enjoy almost 90 out-of-market games a week, most of which are available in crystal-clear HD.

So in the coming months our patrons can beat the heat, relax in our lounge, and enjoy the MLB season while indulging in our fine cigars — and maybe a glass of wine or two.

Next Event: E. P. Carrillo on Saturday April 29th 2pm to 6pm

Please skip lunch and join us on the last Saturday of the month for the much-anticipated E.P. Carillo (EPC) event. We will have both Stick and Box deals with free food and beverages during the event and it all closes with a drawing to be held as we give away a set of E.P. Carrillo “His and Her” Golf Bags. That’s right – two golf bags!!! The golf bags are currently on display in the lounge.

**Twin Golf Bag Raffle**

We are raffling off two golf bags! During April through the conclusion of the EPC Event on the 29th, buy any 5 EPC cigars and get one raffle ticket entered into our drawing.

This includes all EPC blends: New Wave, Dark, The Inch, La Historia, Pledge, Encore and Allegiance.

We’ve added more Daou Winery to our menu!

At our Women’s Cigar Social last month, we sampled and selected several new wines to add to our selection from Daou Winery in Paso Robles. The winners and new additions are: Pessimist, Daou Rose, and Daou Cabernet Sauvignon. The estate selection – Soul of a Lion – continues to exceed the expectations of our clientele and was the crown jewel of the Womens’ Cigar Social — and while we’re on the subject,

March Womens’ Cigar Social

We wish to thank all the women who RSVP’d and showed up to make the last month’s cigar social an even better experience than we imagined. Special thanks to our guests Karen, Bruce, and Hugh of Karen Berger Cigars, and Bobby Haase, Portfolio Specialist of Daou Wines.

Stay tuned for more Womens’ socials to come. Due to increased demand, a waiting list has been established for future Women’s Socials. Add your name to our list by calling Hecho a Mano Cigar Lounge at 480 590-0434.
