Major Props to Us Cigar Smokers by Tommy Zman

“Ah, if only I had brought a cigar with me! This would have established my identity.” – Charles Dickens Dickens was right, you know. A real, true, dyed in the wool cigar smoker sees his (or her) cigars as an extension of his personality, a kind of a prop, if you will. We who cherish [...]

Te-Amo Revolution

Some local shops are starting to get new IPCPR releases from Altadis. Why travel all the way to IPCPR, when I can just wait awhile? That’s just what I did, nothing. Naturally, what caught my eye was the extreme oval shape, and the no frills band. The price was decent as well, so I had [...]

A product of Altadis, the Trinidad Paradox is yet another release from IPCPR 2012. I have very little knowledge of the Trinidad brand.
