IPCPR 2018: Gran Habano

George Rico catches us up on the latest Gran Habano news, including the new medium-bodied Blue in Green, the seriously aged Gran Reserva #5 2012, and the La Coleccion De Elegancia Corojo No. 5 Maduro, which is presented in a way reminiscent of the old Cuban sampler boxes from the 1980’s and 90’s.…

IPCPR 2018: Mombacho

IPCPR 2018: Mombacho

In the Mombaco booth this year, Claudio tells us about the second release of Cosecha, Cosecha 2013. It’s a proper vintage, a Nicaraguan puro that’s made exclusively with one year’s harvest of tobacco. All the tobacco from these cigars was harvested in 2013, as the name indicates. Because the cigars age so long, he tells us that Cosecha 2014 and Cosecha 2015 have already been made and are aging.

Claudio also tells us about an upcoming project, Casa Favilli, which …

IPCPR 2018: Gurkha

IPCPR 2018: Gurkha

We dropped by the Gurkha booth again this year, and Carlos Llaca Torano took us on a tour of the latest cigars. We started with the Ghost Gold extension to the popular Ghost line. It sports and Ecuadorian Habano Rosado wrapper and has a pigtail and closed foot. Next we look at the Marquesa, which is an older property of Gurkha that has a more traditional Cuban vibe. Of course it isn’t completely traditional, the 20-count box is half round, …

IPCPR 2018: Room 101

After a quick stop to enjoy some refreshing chicken in the Room 101 booth, we talked to Matt Booth about arcade games for enjoyment purposes, cigar time travel, and products for people to observe, consume, and purchase (in any order). Those products included The T., Farce, the Connecticut extension of Farce, the full-bodied Hit and Run Part 2, and some bundled cigars that are not being actively promoted. But the packaging is far more interesting than your typical bundles. These …

IPCPR 2018: Drew Estate – Tins, Isla Del Sol, and More

Drew Estate added a lot of new products to their catalog this year, and the highest concentration of new things were smaller cigars in tinned presentations. The Undercrown Sun Grown, Sweet Baby Jane, and Joya de Nicaragua Antaño 1970 are coming to tins. Dirty Fabien gives us the run down on the change from actual tins to cardboard packaging. This drops the retail price of many of their short smoke offerings from $18 to $13. The new cardboard packaging also …

You can’t not talk to Pedro Gomez when you visit the Drew Estate booth at IPCPR. This year Pedro was our tour guide through the world of Drew Estate’s Kentucky Fire Cured products. After a quick review of the fire curing process and previous releases, Pedro introduces us to the latest expansion, the Kentucky Fire Cured Sweets. The cigars feature a Mexican San Andres wrapper leaf, a sweetened cap, and a little of the fire cured leaf in the filler. …

Also new this year is the Joya Silver in the Joya Family Series, a box-pressed cigar with a Ecuadorian …
