IPCPR 2018: Altadis

This year Travis Pappenheim took us on a whirlwind tour of the new product in the Altadis booth at IPCPR 2018. And we cover a lot of ground. We get started with the new Romeo y Julieta 1875 Nicaragua, which is a step up in body from the original 1875 and features Nicaraguan Habano leaf. Next we look at the Aging Room Pura Cepa, a Nicaraguan puro with blend designed to give off the same aroma as the cigars Rafael …

IPCPR 2018: S.T. Dupont

You can’t pass up an opportunity to take a look at all the new S.T. Dupont product when you visit the Davidoff booth at IPCPR. This year Megha Malagatti is our guide to the swanky new accessories, including the high-end products from their Disney partnership, including the very first luxury levitating pen, which is designed to look like a lightsaber. We also take a look at the new Le Grand S.T. Dupont lighter that’s capable of alternating between a torch …

IPCPR 2018:  Serino Cigars

We meet up with Carson Serino at Serino Cigars to discuss the Wayfarer. We also get a sneak peak at a new cigar coming out later this year or 2019 called the Taino. Carson gave each of us a pre-release sample of the Taino to smoke which we all thought was very good. Keep an eye out.

IPCPR 2018: Arturo Fuente

In the always flashy and enticing Arturo Fuente booth, Liana Fuente and the perpetually dapper Manny Iriarte show us the new Carlos Fuente Commemorative Humidor, that features a clever “secret stash” compartment that opens from the back, decorated with Carlos Fuente’s fingerprint in gold. It’s a limited edition piece, only 858 were produced. We also take a look at the Don Carlos The Man cigar, the Rosado Sun Grown Magnum R Super 60, and the 40 ring gauge Fuente Fuente …

IPCPR 2018: Foundation Cigars

IPCPR 2018: Foundation Cigars

As per usual, the Foundation booth was constantly full of people, and full of a mixture of art and cigars. We grabbed a few minutes of Nick Melillo’s time to talk about the very limited Wise Man Maduro Lancero and the Tabernacle Havana Seed CT which features Cuban Seed Havana #142 tobacco. That tobacco is high yield, very oily, resistant to disease, but also difficult to properly ferment. It’s a much different tobacco than your typical Connecticut Broadleaf.

We also …

IPCPR 2018: Fratello Cigars

IPCPR 2018: Fratello Cigars

We catch up with the humungous Omar de Frias of Fratello Cigars at his booth at IPCPR and he gives us the lowdown on what’s new with Fratello. One change is the Classico, Bianco and The Boxer packaging has been updated. He also tells us about his new cigar line, Navetta Inverso, which retails from $9.00-$12.00. Navetta is Italian for “shuttle” which is a nod to Omar’s days at NASA.

IPCPR 2018: Curivari


This year at IPCPR Andreas Throuvalas shows us the latest Curivari releases. It isn’t a single cigar, instead it’s two different collections of their popular microblends. In the past, it has been difficult to track down all the different blends the company has released. These collections will allow fans an easy way to try them all. Keep an eye out them in the coming months. They will be a regular release, but the amounts shipped will be small at any …

IPCPR 2018: Micallef

We catch up on the latest Micallef cigar news with Steve Henrickson in this video. Steve tells us about the new cigar factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. And that’s good news for fans of their cigars. The increases in economies of scale mean that they’ve been able to reduce the price of the majority of their products. He also tells us customers have been asking for additional, fuller bodied cigars, and they’ve responded with the new Grande Bold lines. There are …

IPCPR 2018: Illusione

IPCPR 2018: Illusione

In the Illusione booth this year, Dion Giolito talks to us about the new OneOff and the history of the brand. Dion sought to create a cigar in keep with the spirit of the legendary original, but with his interpretation. It’s not meant to be a recreation of the original, tobacco and processes have changed a lot since it was originally created. We also talk about the situation in Nicaragua and what effect its having on Illusione. At the moment …
