IPCPR 2014: Cabal Cigars

Henke Kelner’s of Davidoff fame has a son with his own factory in the Dominican Republic that is beginning to make some waves. One of the cigars riding that wave is Cabal who I have had the honor of smoking a cigar with at Sabor Havana in Miami, Florida. This year was their first ever IPCPR and we stopped by for a brief visit.

According to their website:

Cabal {kuh • bäl} n.  a group of like-minded individuals who gather for a common purpose or ideal.

Nothing good comes quickly or easily…  Over a grueling two year period, the quest for a perfect blend and a worthy manufacturer for his Cabal line of cigars, Chris Arolfo and Hendrik Kelner, Jr. joined forces to create the flagship brand for the newly formed Kelner Boutique Factory (KBF).

Based in the Dominican Republic, KBF relies upon Hendrik’s vast experience and exclusive tobaccos to produce cigars with unrivaled tastes and consistency.  Over the course of a year, Chris and Hendrik developed flavor profiles and sizes that Chris envisioned when he set out to launch Cabal Cigars.
