Ocala, Florida, UNITED STATES

OCALA, Fla., June 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RICH Cigars, Inc. (“RICH”), (OTCPink:RCGR), a manufacturer of high-quality premium cigar products, proudly announced today, that a popular first tier cigar magazine, Cigar Snob, has rated the Company’s Godfather cigar in the May/June 2017 The Bike Issue, giving it rave reviews and a solid rating.

“We have worked long and hard, focusing on the quality of the product above all else,” said Al Rushing, Vice President and COO of Rich Cigars, Inc.  “To receive both a solid rating and excellent reviews from one of the industry’s most recognized magazines, says more than all of the marketing and self-touting we could ever muster as a young company. 

“These are experienced smokers, who are respected critics within this arena, having well evolved pallets.  There is no question that if they put our brand in the same class as the market’s top cigars, then cigar smokers across the globe are going to take our brand seriously.”

Cigar Snob is a leading publication in the industry.  Competitively ranking amongst other popular publications such as Cigar Aficionado and Cigar Journal, Cigar Snob has a wide circulation; appealing to both the modern and traditional cigar enthusiast.  The magazine covers an eclectic mix of Cigars, Wine & Spirits and Fashion Models, and leverages multiple media outlets to reach its audience.  With a large consumer retail following, Cigar Snob offers a tremendous amount of support to both new and well-established brands.

In the May/June 2017 The Bike Issue, the Godfather ranked strongly against the Ashton Classic Maduro and held its own against the Gispert Intenso.  Strong rankings like these, from a magazine like Cigar Snob, “only adds a tremendous amount of support to the current momentum we already have in the market,” stated Richard Davis, CEO of Rich Cigars, Inc.

Mr. Davis concluded, “We anticipate that the exposure we receive from Cigar Snob will significantly increase the brand recognition of our Inspiration Blend – encompassing our first four lines; the Vendetta, Billionaire, Kingpin and the Godfather.  We’re also confident that from the increased brand recognition, our momentum will continue to pick up quickly, resulting in a stronger increase of sales.”
