Fast forward to March this year, and my good friend Akhil at Regius was traveling to California with Wilson. They made a point to stop in to Bakersfield and say hello, and Wilson gave me his new blend…Continue

Siejas had retried from Altadis in 2012, but opened a small batch factory with his brothers, and his…Continue

Lately I have been diving head first into the world of custom rolled Habanos through several avenues I have established over the years.
