IPCPR 2017: Cigar Oasis

IPCPR 2017: Cigar Oasis

The Cigar Oasis booth looked (and sounded) a little different when we met up with Chaim Kohn at IPCPR. That no doubt has to do with this being Cigar Oasis’s 20th year in business. Chaim takes us on a quick product tour, starting with the Cigar Oasis Excel, the product that started it all. Then through the models that followed it (Plus, Ultra, Magna), and their line of hygrometers. Finally, the recently updated Smart Humidor technology allows you to view …

IPCPR 2017: 13 Minutes with Pete Johnson

IPCPR 2017: 13 Minutes with Pete Johnson

One of the interviews I look forward to every year at IPCPR is our annual chat with Pete Johnson of Tatuaje. And it felt like almost no time had passed since our last installment of the Minutes With Pete Johnson series. There he was behind the bar at the back center of the booth, leaning over a lineup of Tatuaje Monsters, just like last year. Fortunately Pete’s considerably heavier beard this year snapped me out of my Deja Vu.

The blend is the same, an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and filler. The new size retails for $8.25, plus applicable taxes.

IPCPR 2017: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust

IPCPR 2017: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust

This year we didn’t sit down with with Steve Saka of Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust until the 3rd day of IPCPR. He was self-deprecating as always, but you don’t have to brag when your booth is constantly full of people. Initially he was a little annoyed by the trade show venue change up, but after a couple of days in the Las Vegas Convention Center, he decided he liked it there. Because it was less convenient to get sucked into …

IPCPR 2017: Nomad

IPCPR 2017: Nomad

It’s always fun stopping by to talk to Fred Rewey, owner of Nomad cigars and several entertaining social media accounts. If you can believe it, Fred’s been at it, doing cigars his way for five years now. To celebrate that significant accomplishment, he’s releasing five-year old Anniversary edition of the Classic Dominican Line in the Navigator (6 x 52) and Vagabond (4 5/8 x 54) sizes.

Fred tells us that Fin De Los Mundos (“End of the worlds”) is coming …
