GBP Selects M. Misti Cigar Company to Distribute Don Duarte Cigar Lines


M. Misti Cigar Company dba Crown Jewel International, a manufacturer and distributor of premium cigars, recently announced that it was selected by GBP to be the exclusive United States distributor of its successful Don Duarte cigar lines. The move is quite advantageous for both sides, as it combines GBP’s highly rated cigar lines with M. Misti Cigar Company’s expertise in the realm of distribution.

Mark Mistie Jr., M. Misti’s corporate director, commented on the deal in the official press release. He said: Talk about legendary icons. Mr. Evelio Oviedo is a maestro level Cuban roller and creator of famous award winning blends such as the Monte Cristo #1 & #4, and H. Upmann Cuban Series; along with Mr. Nestor Plasencia (one of the largest and most respected Nicaraguan cigar growers and manufacturers in the world) and Dr. Roger Duarte and his family, who were the original founders of Esteli which have helped shape the Nicaraguan tobacco industry, what an exciting team. We are both humbled and thrilled with this opportunity.”

GBP CEO Roger Duarte added: “We are proud to be in business with an organization that advocates “old fashion common sense” approaches to its company’s mission and process. Their company’s growth and cigar brand achievements as demonstrated by the growth of their Crown Jewel line are staggering; far surpassing industry averages and standards. This company is result driven, not only in selling cigars, but as well in it’s branding and enhancement of the cigar lifestyle.”

Mistie Jr., said the company expects to sell approximately 500,000 units of Don Duarte cigars to customers at around $8 to $9 each to achieve retail sales in the neighborhood of $4,500,000 for this fiscal year. He noted that such success should be sustainable with proper marketing and the avoidance of the so-called “Fad” factor.

Kale Beyer is the former co-owner of Myriada Fusion Enterprises which was the initial marketing company for Temptation cigars. Kale was relieved of duties at Myriada due to unethical and dishonest transactions which caused Myriada to close because of this behavior. He then went on, after betraying his business partners, to approach JD Cigars to market his own company...Bongo Bay which is a one man operation. It will be a short time before people begin to see the shrewd and back-stabbing nature of Kale and others will suffer at his hands.
