IPCPR: Signed Boxes and Their Stories

Here are all the cigar boxes I got signed during IPCPR 2013. Most of them I had pruchased and wanted to have them signed, so I brought them with me. There were a few like the Moya Ruiz Habano, Rodrigo Fortaleza, and the Nomad Esteli Lot 1386 that were given to me at the end of the show. I will be doing a write up on each of the gift boxes in the next week.…

IPCPR Notes, madness, and thoughts….

 

             Where do I start…  Uhhhhh, I don’t remember.  I guess that’s a good start really, it was all such a blur.  Wynn was haunting my subconscious, with Ferrari’s and Asian girls tempting my Vegas demise.  A man known simply as “G” became a reality, and pushed the team to their limits….  Ass Juice…wait..., what?!?!?  Let’s grab a cab, but they won’t stop here, and that club across the street?  Kayfee has entered the building.

             I must admit, I live…

Ezra Zion IPCPR Recap from HALFWHEEL

We discussed this with Fred Rewey, but there are many different approaches taken by the Ezra Zion-distributed brands. Rewey travels to events with the boys from Ezra Zion, who seem to be everywhere. The work paid off as the brand made an appearance on the 2012 Consensus list and seemed packed during our time at the house of Emilio booth.

The Booth

As with the Guayacan booth, we noticed a large number of retailers coming through to visit the Ezra Zion part of the Emilio Cigars booth… Continue

IPCPR: My Thoughts on the Experience

Honestly, I don't know where to start. It was the best six days I think I could have had in Vegas.

This is my second IPCPR show, but my first show in Vegas. I have to admit Vegas kicked my ass a little bit. We went to bed after 2AM and was up early every day.

I think at last count from Friday to Wednesday I smoked about 70 cigars. Needless to say, each morning, I woke up with rat turds in my…

IPCPR 2013 – Kings Cigars

A day or two before leaving for the show I received a curious package in the mail.  In it were a couple of cigars, a t-shirt and a cutter with the name “Kings Cigars” all over them.  I had never heard of theses guy, why are they sending me stuff?  So one of my first missions at the IPCPR show was to seek them out and see what they were all about. It turns…

Review: Tatuaje Avion FF 13 Limited

This is a guest review from Redditor 1lluminat1.  

 

Got this when I saw that bundles of 10 were being sold as a limited edition.  The regular production Avion 13 will have Connecticut Broadleaf wrappers so this was a pre-release limited edition with the original wrapper type.  As I like to…

IPCPR 2013 – Villiger Cigars with Roy MacLaren

On Monday I had the great pleasure of sitting down with Roy MacLaren, the president of Villiger Cigars North America, their premium cigar division. I’ve had a great relationship with the folks at Villiger and they have really been making some terrific premium cigars over the last few years. I smoked the 125th Anniversary robusto while I was at the show and it was quite a delicious smoke.  I had run over to…

The My Father line was introduced back in 2008 by Jaime Garcia as a tribute to his father, master blender Don Pepin Garcia. In 2009 I purchased a My Father sampler pack and the cigar up for review today, the No. 3 Cremas, is the last stick standing from that treasured group.

Cigar Stats: The No. 3 sports an Ecuadorian Habano-Rosado wrapper and…
