Due to venue conflicts, The Herrera Estelí Miami Smoke Inn 25th Anniversary The Raji launch event will NOW take place at Smoke Inn’s headquarters in Boynton Beach Florida on Friday May 6 from 6 to 9 p.m. EST and will be open for all to attend! Attendees of the epic event will meet Jonathan, Willy, Abe, and the man of honor Raji Dababneh, while grooving to beats spun by Drew Estate’s very-own D.J. Eli. There will be special promotions on select Drew Estate products that evening including The Raji with opportunities to take home special event cigars such as the Herrera Caja China and the highly sought-after Savage Feast, as well as other surprises as the evening unfolds. Fans from all over the country will be able to take advantage of the special promotions and give-a-ways through Smoke Inn’s e-commerce site.
2021 marked the 25th Anniversary of the opening of the first Smoke Inn premium cigar store, and Drew Estate and Smoke Inn’s owner, Abe Dababneh, are celebrating the landmark achievement with the launch of a special cigar that not only commemorates Smoke Inn’s historic birthday but also honors Abe’s father and mentor, Raji Dababneh.
The Herrera Estelí Miami Smoke Inn 25th Anniversary The Raji (6 x 50, Toro) is a limited-edition cigar that’s lovingly produced at El Titan De Bronze, the Little Havana boutique cigar factory that’s owned by Drew Estate Master Blender Willy Herrera’s family and where all Herrera Estelí Miami cigars are made. Constructed using a Mexican San Andres wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic, the Herrera Estelí Miami Smoke Inn 25th Anniversary Raji is a spicy medium- to full-bodied cigar with hay and floral notes. Every Herrera Estelí Miami Smoke Inn 25th Anniversary The Raji cigar features a commemorative band around its foot, and the cigars are packaged in 10-count boxes that are adorned with the Smoke Inn logo. Ramping up the celebration and honoring Raji Dababneh even more, Raji’s signature is emblazoned on the bottom of every box.
“When I was growing up in Chicago, I watched my dad work tirelessly at the little grocery store he owned,” says Abe. “He always put in whatever it took to overcome any challenges and keep a roof over our heads and food on our table. He is a true inspiration for me as a businessman, husband and as a father. I learned, and continue to learn, so much from him. Dedicating our 25th anniversary cigar to him is the best way for me to give my heartfelt thanks to him for all that he has done for me.”
“Relationships are the cornerstones of cigar culture, and they are the starting point for everything we do at Drew Estate,” adds Jonathan Drew, Founder and President of Drew Estate. “Abe and I have been close friends from the very start, and he has always been a true ‘stand and deliver’ guy who deserves the tremendous success he has experienced so far. His father, Raji, clearly has been a great mentor and teacher, just as my own dad, Gary, has taught me along the way. It’s an honor to pay tribute to all our fathers and mentors, as well as celebrate Smoke Inn’s 25th with this majestic Herrera Estelí Miami expression.”
Sales for “The Raji” will begin on May 6th for all attendees of the event and will also be available on Smoke Inn’s website for consumers nationwide.
