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.

IPCPR 2013: Ezra Zion

In this video, Brian spends a few minutes in the Ezra Zion booth to get the scoop on what is new and exciting. I can’t say that I’ve ever smoked an Ezra Zion but after checking out the interview, I’ll be keeping an eye out.

IPCPR 2013: Illusione

IPCPR 2013: Illusione

Each year cigar manufacturers at the annual IPCPR Trade Show seem to get bigger and flashier with their booth designs. One of the few exceptions to that trend has been Illusione. Their booth is always modest in size and chill. It seems like a strange thing to point out, but I like that Illusione has remained relaxed at the show.

During this interview with Dion Giolito, we learn a little about the Illusione Rothschild and any potential confusion is cleared …

IPCPR 2013: Drew Estate #DEipcpr

IPCPR 2013: Drew Estate #DEipcpr

It is really humbling to visit a booth and have them call Stogie Review the “gold standard” of blogs. When Jonathan Drew of Drew Estate says it, it makes you feel very proud. After some early show issues with IPCPR that had me feeling down, hearing Jonathan speak so highly of us and what we do rejuvenated my spirits. Jonathan was not 100% but made it to the show and graciously spent 20 minutes with us to talk about all …

David Blanco joins us once again to keep us up to date on his latest offerings from Blanco Cigar Company. A little Stogie Review trivia for you. David Blanco is the only manufacturer we have interviewed at every IPCPR/RTDA that we have attended. He’s always been a great supporter since the beginning.
