We all know that IPCPR has wrapped up for 2012 and although most of the ‘new items’ are already on shelves or en route – there are still some fun and interesting bits of information out there. I hope that everyone has taken their month off after the show, and that the gears are turning for next year’s convention and the months leading up to it. But – instead of talking about the past, lets talk about the future!
First up today, is a cigar called ‘Vista De Cuba’ by a company named Habana Cuba Cigar Company. No – this is a not a company from Cuba, nor does it appear to have anything to do with Cuba aside from using ‘Cuban Seed’ tobacco – but in our world of Cigars right now, doesn’t it seem like everyone is using Cuban seed tobacco? Well – the company started in 2005 and although there has been little to no change, looks like they made a change! New box – so how about some cigar porn.
Yeah yeah yeah – I kinda fell off the page this month. One of the great things about having this as my hobby – I can take time off without catching too much shit, except for a hand full of you all haha! So you may be asking – what has taken you away from the reviews and the more frequent news updates? Short sweet and to the point – IPCPR came along and since I was not there, kinda hard to compete with the big dogs who did go.
