Normally, I find Alec Bradley cigars to underwhelm me. I have smoked the majority of their stuff and none of their cigars jumped up and said, “this is a great cigar”. That fact might have now changed.
Welcome the Alec Bradley Nica Puro. Below is a little about this cigars from my friend Cigar Coop.
The Alec Bradley Nica Puro is a new core line…Continue

As we were working our way through the House of Emilio booth at the IPCPR show we were introduced to Noel Rojas, the man behind Guayacan Cigars. Noel has an amazing story, which he shares in the video below. His cigars are top notch, I smoked a torpedo this week that I've had in the humidor since last December and it was fantastic. I found it to be complex, medium bodied, and had a really nice hint of citrus that…Continue

I have a weakness for the 1502 Black Gold, a beautiful Nicaraguan puro with a maduro wrapper. When I have these in my humidors it’s all I can do to not smoke them up right away. Something just hits me right about that cigar, and my only option is to smoke them. Both vitolas, box pressed Toro and Torpedo, have a partially closed foot, which gives a blast of tasty wrapper flavor right…Continue
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Eddie Ortega and his cigars, going back as far as the REO. While I haven’t gotten around to sampling any of his Wild Bunch series, I have enjoyed the heck out of the Serie D line. At the show Ortega Cigars re-released the Cubao line, and I smoked No. 5 Friday evening, at least I think that’s what it was. I should have measured it because there’s still some confusing information…Continue

Last year we met the guys from Ezra Zion at the show (here's the post) and have gotten to know Kyle, Chris and Alan since. I can't say I agree with their politics or spiritual views all the time, but I can say that they make fine cigars and are passionate about tobacco. Whereas last year they had a booth along side their …Continue

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,…Continue
