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…

My Week (In Smoking) In Review - 07/30/13

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,…

Review: Arcángel

I was able to pick up this this cigar while at IPCPR this year, and I stashed it to be smoked on a clean palette. I have been slammed with work and life issues since returning, and have had a hard time getting to a review. I actually smoked this on Wednesday, but I was not able to get to the review until today (Friday). So, here goes, all be-it a shorter than usual review.
