Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 91

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 91

You’ve probably noticed that Stogie Review has been a little quiet since all the IPCPR 2015 interviews went live. Believe it or not, we’re not taking a break, nor are we throwing in the towel. Shortly after returning from the trade show we learned that our current video host, Blip, will be shutting down on August 20th. No problem, they have a function to publish videos to YouTube automatically, we’re set. Wrong. That functionality failed us, and the tech support …

The Sit Down With Matt Booth

The Sit Down With Matt Booth

An interview with Matt Booth at the IPCPR 2015 tradeshow didn’t work out, but Mr. Booth is resourceful. He contacted me this week asking if we could arrange to talk on a medium like Skype, and I was happy to oblige. Of course Skype fought with us the whole way, but we soldiered on, as gentlemen in the modern age do, and I think we did a pretty good job of telling the Room 101 story.

With the IPCPR 2015 trade show safely behind us, all our videos posted and our various floor-walking aches and pains beginning to fade, it’s time to take a look at our coverage as a whole.

We did miss a few booths (apologies, no slight intended), but what we did get is …

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 …
