When you work on a blend do you try to pair it with your wines, or do you use another method?

Comment by Docwill on January 9, 2014 at 9:31am

Do you see a trend towards milder or mild to medium cigars?

Are your cigars blended to a specific niche in the marketplace  or towards personal preference?

Will you release your current blends in smaller sizes, and if so, would it affect the overall profile and taste of that blend?

Do you have any inside information on how each blend ages, smoke them now, or age them for 3,6,9 months etc,?

New releases for 2014?

What do you feel makes a boutique brand and the cigars they produce better than the stereotypical established brands being produced by the big boys like Altadis, GeneralCigar and Rocky Patel?

Do you often pair cigars with wine and if so what are some basic pairings that you recommend?

How did you come up with the bad@$$ design of the bands on the Terrior line? 

What is the process for coming out with a new line.  Do you create the cigar first or the name and profile you are looking for?

When the FDA starts requiring cigar manufacturers to have their blends approved, how do you see that affecting you and the other small producers. Can imagine an additional year + for them to approve blends, if their track record is any indication.

How come you haven't started a twitter account yet?

Who and what inspires you in regards to your brand (Cigars and/or Wine)?

Comment by Samuel Friedrich on January 9, 2014 at 1:14pm

Does the fermentation process involved in making wine help you understand better how to cure tobacco?

Have you ever heard of Second Growth Cigars? They were a cigar made by Henke Kelner and his son. What was unique, they were shipped in boxes made from wine barrels. They really enhanced the flavors of the cigars with a wine flavor because of the boxes. Having a wine business as well, do you plan on doing something like that?

Besides wine, what would you suggest I pair your cigars with?

As someone who loves cigars, but doesn't drink much wine, how would you suggest I get into wine as a hobby? Any starting point?
