IPCPR 2017: Warped

IPCPR 2017: Warped

Up next on our interview marathon through IPCPR 2017 was Kyle Gellis of Warped Cigars. I was quick to note that while his beard was still very full bodied, the man-bun of last year had been replaced with a more medium to medium-full haircut. From there we talk a little bit about how long Kyle has been producing cigars. The answer might surprise you. (If you already knew, consider this parenthetical aside a virtual fist bump.)

After reminiscing about the …

IPCPR 2017: Padilla and Cuervo y Sobrinos

This year we got started with our long time friend Ernesto Padilla. In recent years, Ernesto has had a fairly modest booth at the IPCPR trade show, with his latest cigars the main focus of the booth.

Coming Soon: IPCPR 2017

Let me ask you a personal question: Do you like free cigars? Odds are you do. My scientific, peer-eschewed research indicates 9.5 out of 10 people prefer their cigars to cost nothing. The other guy? He got so excited he scribbled all over the survey, broke his pencil and then fell out of his chair. I’m counting that as half a “yes”. Heck, I’m a little excited just writing this paragraph, and I’m the one giving away cigars.
