IPCPR 2015: Padilla

IPCPR 2015: Padilla

No trade show is complete without a visit to our friend Ernesto Padilla, and I finished talking to him mere moments before the lights dimmed over IPCPR 2015. After discussing my little (and admittedly silly looking) video recording device, we move onto other topics, such as changes in distribution, the challenges of creating a great $6 to $7 cigar without skimping on tobacco quality or construction, the Padilla Criollo-98, Padilla Corojo-99, Padilla San Andres and Padilla La Pilar. With all …

IPCPR 2015: J. Fuego

IPCPR 2015: J. Fuego

And now for the IPCPR 2015 interview everyone knew was coming. I’ve been a big fan of J. Fuego cigars for years, so it was just a matter of time before I stopped in to talk to Jesus Fuego. This year his booth was right on main corridor running down the middle of the trade show floor, which I affectionately named “The Trade Show Mile”. The Trader vic’s vibe was strong in J. Fuego booth, I wanted to order a …

IPCPR 2015: E.P. Carrillo

IPCPR 2015: E.P. Carrillo

I caught up with industry legend and long time friend of Stogie Review Ernesto Perez-Carrillo on the last day of IPCPR 2015. Time was short so we kept the video quick. In it, he shows us the Seleccion Oscuro, Edicion Limitada 2015 and Ernesto’s Humidor No. 1 which features three of his favorite blends (Broadleaf, Inaugural Connecticut and Colorado Sumatra).…

IPCPR 2015: CLE

IPCPR 2015: CLE

We finished off our tour of the CLE booth at IPCPR 2015 by talking to Gaby Eiroa about Eiroa, CLE and Patoro products. In this video she shows a teaser for the 20th Anniversary cigar named “First 20 Years” which is currently slated for March, the new CLE Signature and CLE Plus 2015. We also had a look at the cigars blended by Christian’s father- the Aladino, Tatascan and Rancho Luna bundle cigar. At the end we take a look …

IPCPR 2015: Asylum

IPCPR 2015: Asylum

We also had a chance to catch up with the impressively-bearded Tom Lazuka about Asylum Cigars about what he brought to the trade show. He told us about the new Asylum 33, the first installment of the 33 Project which he bills as a documentary in tobacco. After that he introduced us to the Ogre Lancero and the Insidious Maduro and Habano. With all the new releases under the CLE umbrella, Lazuka tells me the plan for the next year …

IPCPR 2015: Edgar Hoill

IPCPR 2015: Edgar Hoill

One of the first people I spoke to in the CLE booth at IPCPR 2015 was Edgar Hoill. For some reason in all the years he’s been coming to the show, this is the first time we’ve gotten any camera time with him. I’m happy to correct that oversight this year. In this quick video we talk about the Everyday Hustle and the OG OSOK. I think my brain was a little fried at this point in the show and …

IPCPR 2015: Perdomo

IPCPR 2015: Perdomo

We dropped by the Perdomo booth at IPCPR 2015 to speak with Nick Perdomo, and found him looking surprisingly youthful. Actually, we spoke to his son, Nick Perdomo III, and gave us the scoop on the latest Perdomo developments. In this video we cover some shiny packaging updates and blend tweaks to the Perdomo Habano as well as the craft beer-inspired Perdomo Craft Series.…

IPCPR 2015: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust

IPCPR 2015: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust

Though samples of his cigars were not ready for IPCPR 2015 and his booth was poorly located, Steve Saka “Catador de Puros” of Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust was busy shaking hands and filling orders. It took a few visits, but Ben and I managed to secure a good chunk of time with him at trade show to catch up. In this 16 minute video we discuss a variety of things, including in-depth details of the inaugural Sobremesa blend, sourcing the …

IPCPR 2015: Viaje

IPCPR 2015: Viaje

I passed the Viaje booth at IPCPR 2015 several times thinking Andre Farkas wasn’t there. It turns out he was there the whole time, I just didn’t recognize him without his trademark glasses. It’s a little like what happens when Superman puts on glasses, only in reverse. (I think he should also consider the Superman hair curl when the glasses come off.) With the Cosmo portion of the interview complete, Andre talked about the Collaboration 2015 with Abe Flores of …

IPCPR 2015: La Aurora

IPCPR 2015: La Aurora

We paid a visit to the Miami/La Aurora booth at IPCPR 2015, and the La Aurora folks decided to shake it up a bit. Instead of talking to Guillermo Leon, they had us speak to Manuel Inoa, La Aurora’s master blender. Speaking of shaking things up, Manuel kicked off the video by showing us the Untamed Extreme, the amped-up follow up to last year’s Untamed. From there he talked about the Puro Vintage 2006 and it’s unconventional packaging based on …
