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.

Every year we have a minor hiccup with IPCPR Coverage. Fortunately, we are past the days of those hiccups being hosting related.

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.
