The La Gloria Cubana Colección Reserva was released at the 2017 IPCPR trade show in Las Vegas, NV.  The cigar is a collaboration with Ernesto Perez Carrillo who took over the La Gloria Cubana line in Miami in 1980 where it had been in operation since 1972.  La Gloria Cubana was one of the hottest cigar lines during the cigar boom of the 1990s and was one of the original cigars considered full bodied during a time where there were …

Dan O’Brien Plays the Cigar Box Guitar at Sir Stogies

Last year, when I walked into Sir Stogies, and Tim excited told me about what he had planned for one of …
