Nub Connecticut 464T

Nub Connecticut 464T

A few years back I was approached by Sam Leccia (The Face behind Nub Cigars at the time) about making a Rolling Table for him to take from event to event. I was happy to help out and got together with my Dad to make a couple tables.

Part of the arrangement for making the Rolling Tables was that my father and I be provided with a few boxes of Nub Cigars. My father and I each had Sam sign …

Herfin’ Heads: L’Atelier Extension de la Racine ER13

In this very special episode of Herfin’ Heads Ben does not confront a high school bully, while Brian also does not learn a thing or two from a hard-nosed Driver’s Ed teacher. Instead Ben and Brian journey once again into the realm of cigar reviews to discuss the L’Atelier Extension de la Racine ER13.
