9th SOTL Global Roundtable



The SOTL Global Movement, in partnership with Chicago Cigar Week, concluded an extraordinary week of cigar aficionado festivities from July 26th to 30th, 2023. The crowning jewel of this exceptional week was the 9th SOTL GLOBAL ROUND TABLE, an event that not only met but surpassed all expectations, leaving attendees captivated and eager for more.

On Friday, July 28th between 12.00 pm-3.00 pm at the Blue Label Cigar Lounge (423 N State St, Lockport, IL) We discovered & and delighted our aesthetic taste and we discussed “ How the place of origin develops our palate”. This event was a resounding success, thanks in large part to the panelists who graced the stage with their expertise and unbridled passion.

The event's seamless flow and engaging discussions were expertly guided by our moderators, Dr. Anastasia Psomiadi and Monique Henderson, who skillfully ensured that every moment was meaningful and memorable.

The audience was treated to enlightening discussions and insights from some of the industry's finest:
Leonor Abzaradel, Sara Rodriguez, Patricia Khalaf, Pascion White, Christine Russell Morgan, Belkys Sanchez, Melissa Whitfield.

The atmosphere was electrified by these experts, and their contribution was invaluable.

What truly set this event apart was its interactive nature and the fascination it stirred within the 100 attendees. SOTLs and BOTLs, united by their shared love for cigars, wine, and whiskey, actively participated in the discussions, sharing their own experiences and perspectives.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our event sponsors, Nova Cigars, BAMF Cigars, Hiram and Solomon Cigars, Luciano Cigars, West Tampa Tobacco Company, and Drunk Chicken Cigars. Your unwavering support exemplifies the spirit of camaraderie within the cigar community, making this event possible.
The SOTL Global Movement and Chicago Cigar Week are excited to continue breaking stereotypes and celebrating the passion within the cigar world. The success of this event is a testament to the unity and fervor that define the SOTL and BOTL community.
