Review: Casa Miranda Chapter Two

Barry Stein is no stranger to Cigar Federation, was recently on CigarChat talking about all the new releases from Miami Cigar Company. Here is a bit of what he shared:

“I can’t say there is one cigar we are releasing that I am hesitant to smoke. I am not just drinking the Kool Aid. The cigars that MCC is coming out with this year versus…

Kafie 1901 Don Fernando Maduro

Kafie 1901 Don Fernando Maduro V Sixty (5 x 60)    Hello, BOTL! We're back again for another review. This time, a cigar soon to be released from my new friend, Gaby Kafie of Kafie 1901 Cigars. The debut for this cigar is set for two weeks from now, so I get the worm (stick in this case) a little early. Here is a little information about the blend from their site (…

Pre-Release Review – AKA Nth Degree

When I saw AKA Cigars owner Jay Lundy at IPCPR 2013, I was eager to talk with him about the new AKA Nth Degree.  I knew this was going to be their first maduro offering, but I didn’t know it was going to be a San Andreas Broadleaf!  We’ve had Jay on CigarChat a few times, but I met him in…

MPC: Punch Bareknuckle

I couldn't have been happier. Last week, back at the Detention Bar, friends brought me a Punch Bareknuckle Elites. This was a stick that had long been on my wishlist. I love the size: 5.2" with a 45/64 ring gauge corona. IMO, this is probably the perfect size. Big enough to hold on to. Small enough to smoke in an hour or less. And it had plenty of flavor and body. This is one of my previous cigars from the weekend...…

IPCPR: Opening Gala

The Opening Gala occurred Saturday night after all of the seminars for the day had finished. As you can see in the picture it was packed. I attribute this to the open bar.

Overall, it wasn't the mix of people that I expected to see. I would have assumed that more manufactures would have been in attendance, but that wasn't the case. Most of the big brand weren't there, but I did notice that several boutique companies like Reinado,…
