Yeah yeah yeah, I know – I have taken a couple weeks off of the news but it is all for good reasons – - kinda. Either way, I hope you all are ready for another installment of The Nuts Newsworthy Notes!
Looks like the H. Upmann name is back in the legal processes – the company was ‘started’ December 17th, 1912 in America and has been under the ownership of Altidas since then and has recently renewed the legal rights to the H. Upmann name. But – it does not appear that they are going to be going to court or anything of the such, taken from Cigar Aficionado “… it appears that the U.S. rights to the Altadis U.S.A. Inc. brand portfolio will not be the source of future battles: the company, which makes and markets Montecristo, H. Upmann, Romeo y Julieta and Por Larrañaga cigars, is a unit of Altadis S.A., which owns half of Cuba’s Habanos S.A. and is the largest customer by far of Cuba’s cigar industry.” Must be nice to have friends in high places, right!?
