IPCPR 2015: Leccia

IPCPR 2015: Leccia

It’s always nice to see Sam Leccia. The professional wrestler (Flex Armstrong) Sam had with him at trade show told me if I didn’t say that, he’d show me what “Chin Music” & “Frog Splash” mean. Now that it’s safe to talk, let’s go over what Sam brought to IPCPR 2015. In this video we cover the four sizes of the new Luchador El Gringo, including the 4 1/2 x 70 “mat press” Frog Splash he reluctantly created to satisfy …

IPCPR 2015: CAO

I made a point to stop by Rick Rodriguez and Ed McKenna’s corner of the General Cigar booth to see what CAO brought to IPCPR 2015.

Ed brings good news to all you Parrotheads out there, CAO has entered into a partnership with Jimmy Buffett and have created two Buffett-themed cigars, the CAO Margaritaville and the CAO Havana Daydreamin’.

IPCPR 2015: Cigar Oasis

One of the things I love about Chaim Kohn of Cigar Oasis is every time I talk to him he’s telling me about an improvement he’s made to one of his products. And I don’t just mean at the trade show. But IPCPR 2015 is the place where we got to see those improvements in person. In this video Chaim briefly takes us through the current line of humidification units and hygrometers before getting in to the relauch of their …

IPCPR 2015: Vivalo

Patrick Vivalo has been a friend of ours for a number of years. I still remember enjoying one of his first batches of Vivalo cigars a few trade shows ago, when he was still working for Rocky Patel. It was nice to see him setting out on his own at IPCPR 2015. In this video we take a look at his inaugural brand, the Vivalo Serie Exclusivo, which is a brick and mortar-only offering, details about the blend and recommended …

IPCPR 2015: Altadis

You could have spent an hour checking out all the different lines of cigars in the Altadis USA booth at IPCPR 2015. Fortunately we had Janelle Rosenfeld, VP of Marketing for Altadis to give us a streamlined guide us through all their new releases. The resulting video is a little longer than most of our interviews at just under 12 1/2 minutes, but it’s a fast-moving 12 1/2 minutes. In it we cover the “Year of Montecristo”, which features the …

IPCPR 2015: Dissident

IPCPR 2015: Dissident

Who doesn’t love a giant robot? That’s what I thought as I approached the Dissident booth at IPCPR 2015. I didn’t even know whose booth it was, I was going to investigate. After I checked out the robot, Red Ryan and Gweedo C told me about the new Soap Box Shift and the new Home. The robot’s message is to “deny your programming”, which, as a programmer myself, is what I do whenever something breaks. …
