ACE Prime is proud to receive the Cigar Journal’s NOMINATION for the Best Cigar of Nicaragua, for Luciano The Traveler.

We congratulate all winners in all categories, in special those from Nicaragua. I’m especially proud of my dear partner Luciano for the great achievement of being nominated among the top 5 best cigars of Nicaragua

It’s all the individual stories and lives that make this such an exceptional team. This nomination, for The Best Cigar of Nicaragua for Luciano The Traveler, belongs to our whole ACE Prime and Tabacalera Pichardo family. This is a very special cigar for us, and I’m thrilled that The Traveller has been recognized with this nomination. I wanted to acknowledge all the beautiful cigars produced in Nicaragua this year, and it was an honor just to be included among such a strong pedigree of nominees.

This nomination caps an incredible year for ACE Prime, from releasing successful cigars to launching the strategic partnership with Crowned Heads (announced early this year). The Traveler sold-out of distribution in the US, but Europe’s cigar fans can expect an exclusive limited-edition European release of Luciano The Traveler later this year.

In the US, cigar lovers can expect the next release of the Luciano cigar – “The Dreamer”, which will begin shipping next week.

Inspired by the book “The Artisan Soul” (Erwin McManus), The Dreamer is a Lancero that innovates in every possible way. The construction is designed to create the best draw experience, and the leaves contained in this blend are carefully selected to provoke more salivation, so a full flavor can be perceived.

I wanted to produce a cigar that would represent the human imagination,” says Luciano Meirelles. We are very proud of this blend. The Dreamer is something special for the true cigar lover.
