A Week at Puro Sabor 2017

 

Maybe I'm kind of basic, but I don't think I've ever gotten off a plane, and had someone waiting with a sign with my name on it, which was kind of nice.  More importantly, rather than wait in line for customs like usual, we were escorted…

Review: Chogui Dos77

Chogüí Cigars launched in 2014, but it didn’t hit the US market until 2015. The Dos77 Rogusto was released that year.
