An interview with Pedro Gomez at the Drew Estate booth, yields some interesting new information about the Nica Rustica and a small tidbit of Nicaraguan history.

This Nestor Miranda One Life Edition Danno 2015 Habano - whew, thats a long one - is a large cigar, but it’s not nearly as heavy as one would think.

Better carve out a couple hours as this a long cigar, though luckily not a jaw breaker.

Bayou Morning was a bit of a twist for me from the jar note to the smoke flavors. The name makes me feel as though I should be smoking this on the pier, looking out over a swamp, which really wouldn't be a bad way to start a morning to me.…Continue
