IPCPR 2013: Drew Estate #DEipcpr

IPCPR 2013: Drew Estate #DEipcpr

It is really humbling to visit a booth and have them call Stogie Review the “gold standard” of blogs. When Jonathan Drew of Drew Estate says it, it makes you feel very proud. After some early show issues with IPCPR that had me feeling down, hearing Jonathan speak so highly of us and what we do rejuvenated my spirits. Jonathan was not 100% but made it to the show and graciously spent 20 minutes with us to talk about all …

IPCPR 2013: Punch

IPCPR 2013: Punch

Just about the only Stogie Review record we haven’t broken recently is the record for shortest IPCPR video. The current record holder is Nick Perdomo back in 2011. We got Kendall Roundtree of Punch Cigars to give everything he had but Kendall went a few seconds over. Sorry Kendall. Close but no cigar as the old saying goes.

Skip also shares with us a little known industry quotient known as the Label:Tobacco ratio. Who knew a band had that much impact? LOL. All kidding aside it is always a great time to catch up with Skip.

IPCPR 2013: Viaje Cigars

I remember the days when the masses walked past the Viaje booth. Boy how things have changed! Now Andre Farkas has one of the most popular booths on the show floor. I’m thankful we were able to setup a time to get in and not fight the masses for his attention. Andre is gracious enough to spend a bit of his time with us and give us the info on what he has to offer this year, a surprise release …
