E Stunner by EP Carrillo

E Stunner by EP Carrillo

To put it plainly, things have been crazy busy for me over the past several months. With my daughter getting older, she has hit that age where she rarely naps and spends the vast majority of her day running and playing. This leaves little time for Daddy to slip in a cigar while Mommy works and goes to school.

Even with things being as busy as they have, there isn’t a day that goes by that I’m not working on …

Room 101 Cigars: Daruma Mutante

Room 101 Cigars: Daruma Mutante

Back in June, Mike and I attended the 2013 Famous Smoke Shop Cigarnival. We did a joint review while we were there of the Room 101 Cigars Daruma Mutante. The video slipped through the cracks and probably should come with the tag ‘lost tape’. I came across it while editing video of a review I did recently and thought posting this late was better than letting it disappear forever.

We smoked the Daruma Mutante in the morning, before heading …

Write-Up

Hello and welcome to a little bit of an event coverage video along with my first try of the Draig Cayuquero.

This is not a cigar review but just me talking (I talk a lot) about the …

CHATweetUp 2013: Nomad Cigars

Fred Rewey’s a guy I’ve been meaning to talk to for a while. The opportunity presented itself a few weeks ago at the Chattanooga Tweetup, in a walk-in humidor conveniently stocked with plenty of Nomad cigars. In this interview, we touch on the Fugitive II, the Esteli Lot 1386 and the upcoming box-pressed Sumatra S-307. We also learn that no humidor is safe from a videobomb.

In this video he talks a little about the new Revere Lancero, the Paradigm Corona, possible limited edition fall seasonal blend and his mission to turn every cigar shop in America into a lancero shop.
