Holy cow, that's pretty big news right there. I'm interested to see a press release from Matt as to what the reason is. I hope it has more to do with him focusing on his jewelry and not the FDA...though I think the FDA will be the excuse for much of what happens in the next couple years.

Also, with the change in power in DC it's kind of a weird time to blame the FDA and quit if that's the reason. Things are not set in stone and much of what the FDA has planned could be over ruled by the new regime (hopeful thinking on my part).

He was doing the jewelry thing before cigars and I know his line is doing quite well........... Probably a combination of both, Jewelry doing well and equivalency applications costing too much money.

It really looks like he's just wanting to focus on his jewelry. He mentions the FDA not directly but a little shot about over regulation. Contract was up, probably just felt it was time to move on...that's my opinion anyway, doesn't seem like he's blaming the FDA like Halfwheel is claiming.

Apparently his jewelry got picked up by Nordstroms, he's making bank.

Hey, no enabling the Chief Enabler!! I had forgotten about these, so I smoked one of these exact cigars on the herf last night to see if it was box worthy.

It was.

Just pulled the lever for that same deal.

Here's what Matt had to say on Cigar Coops site..........

 

 

Upon my entry into the premium cigar industry in 2009 I had no idea just how deeply I would fall in love with the business, the craft and culture that many of us consider to be our home. I have forged some of the strongest friendships of my life here within the ranks of our beloved industry. In addition, I have grown a great deal as both a man and a businessman. This has come as a direct result of my connection to our community and my involvement in the industry. As I stand at the threshold of 2017, I face a great deal of both opportunity and obstacle within my business. Over the last few years our core business, the Room101 jewelry brand, has grown at a rate that is both very pleasing and all consuming at once. We have never been more pleasantly daunted by growing pains – and they are pains that promise to continue at a pressing rate through 2017 and beyond.

With all that said, it is with a heavy heart that I have decided to step away from my involvement in the cigar industry. I have done so to allow myself the crucial time necessary to focus my energy on the components of our business that do not face being regulated out of existence by the FDA.

I would like to say that I am grateful for the years of partnership and support from Davidoff. We are in talks to potentially create some form of farewell event tour and I look forward to seeing you all out there on the road.

Most importantly I want to thank the fans, family and friends of the Room101 Brand as none of this would have been possible without your belief and support.

Love & Respect.
