To all my Loyal Dante customers,
It’s with a heavy heart that I inform you that as of 8:30pm today EST I am no longer partnered with Mohammad Fakhro and M Tobacos INC. Any questions about Dante Cigars, accounts, orders, and special appearances please call Mr. Fakhro.
Thank you all for the great ride with Dante, but no worries I’ll be back to the industry soon with crazier creations!
In a conversation with Huff, he informed Cigar Coop that he was looking to take things in a different direction than the current path that company was taking, thus he made the decision to leave the company. Huff also informed Cigar Coop he intends to pursue other opportunities within the cigar industry.
Based in Northern Virginia, Huff and Fakro launched Dante Cigars back in 2013. They worked with Casa Fernandez to produce the Dante (Maduro) and Dante Vita Nova lines. Earlier this year, the company had announced plans for the Dante Purple Mofo, the company’s first limited edition.
