IPCPR 2013: Jose Blanco #DEipcpr

IPCPR 2013: Jose Blanco #DEipcpr

Someone told me a long time ago that if you have a problem with Jose Blanco, then the problem is with you. Jose Blanco has been a great supporter of Stogie Review, social media and bloggers in general since before his current role at Joya De Nicaragua. And his son Jasper is just one adorable little boy! Jose is simply, The Man! If you have a tobacco question, he has an answer for you 99% of the time (a man …

IPCPR 2013: Cigar Oasis

IPCPR 2013: Cigar Oasis

We first came across Cigar Oasis at last year’s IPCPR when we found a prototype of their new digital hygrometer that had the shape and feel of the old style analog hygrometers. Even more recently Brian Hewitt reviewed a production unit of the Caliber 4R. At this year’s show we spent some time with them to see what else they have been working on.

IPCPR 2013: Sam Leccia

IPCPR 2013: Sam Leccia

Every year we have a minor hiccup with IPCPR Coverage. Fortunately, we are past the days of those hiccups being hosting related. This time, unfortunately, they came in the form of Brian’s camera dying. The good news is that it happened right at the end of the interview so I’m told you aren’t missing much.

In this video Sam Leccia talks about his new Black and White lines. In addition, we get word that the old ‘Debut’ (which never made …

IPCPR 2013: La Flor Dominicana

IPCPR 2013: La Flor Dominicana

During Brian’s time in the La Flor Dominicana Booth, two videos were recorded. The first was a new product tour and the second was focused on the new La Flor Dominicana Chapter 1. Rather than post two separate La Flor Dominicana Videos, I decided it would be best to combine them into a single video (which runs about 9 minutes in all).

IPCPR 2013: JC Newman

IPCPR 2013: JC Newman

In this video, Brian is walked through the large JC Newman / Cigar Family booth and is introduced to new products. The most interesting thing that I took away from this interview was in regards to the Toast Across America Sampler. I had no idea that over 5 Million Dollars have been raised for the children in the Dominican Republic.

IPCPR 2013: Miami Cigar

IPCPR 2013: Miami Cigar

If you aren’t familiar with the story, Barry Stein was once a cigar blogger. Barry has always been a friend of Stogie Review and, not terribly long ago, he made the transition from Blogger to working for Miami Cigar. As someone from the outside looking in, I think Barry made a great move. He looks better, sounds better, and seems genuinely happy. I’m glad to see our friend Barry doing well and it was fun having him give us a …

IPCPR 2013: Felix Assouline Cigars

IPCPR 2013: Felix Assouline Cigars

Felix Assouline Cigars wasn’t on our radar coming into IPCPR. It wasn’t until we saw our friend Benny Gomez of Havana Sunrise fame and learned that Felix Assouline is representing his Havana Sunrise blend. Felix was kind enough to spend a few moments with us to tell us all about his other brands. Hewitt got the sample of the EGO Shot and I’m looking forward to hearing what he has to say about it.

IPCPR 2013: Guayacan Cigars

IPCPR 2013: Guayacan Cigars

In this video, Brian spends a little time with Noel Rojas of Guayacan Cigars. The video is short and sweet but does a good job of introducing a product that, up until this point, I was very unfamiliar with.
