IPCPR 2015 Recap!

small crowdI had the time to blog for day one, but time got away from me for the rest of the trip and so I’ll go over the highlights:  I picked up some new lines and that info will be announced as soon as the ink is dry on the contracts.

The crowd was down this year, but that was predicted.  New Orleans is hot and muggy and the week I was there was no exception.  That fact kept some away, but those that did brave the weather were a part of cigar history.

Was it the same ol, same ol…to a degree yes it was.  But you can’t beat the cigar community. We are a tight group and we stick together.

Here’s one of the new ones.
