IPCPR 2017: Island Lifestyle Importers (And Giveaway)

We dropped by the Island Lifestyle Importers booth again this year at IPCPR to talk to Ryan Frailing about cigars and the latest Tommy Bahama-themed accessories.

IPCPR 2017: Cigar Oasis

The Cigar Oasis booth looked (and sounded) a little different when we met up with Chaim Kohn at IPCPR. That no doubt has to do with this being Cigar Oasis’s 20th year in business.
