It’s once time again for another issue of Brian’s The Week In Smoke. In case this is your first Week in Smoke, be advised that it covers many (though not necessarily all) of the cigars I’ve smoked in the past week (or the past month, or however long it has been since the last issue), […]
What do you get when two manufacturers work together on a cigar? If you said “a collaboration”, you’d be right, but with this joint effort from Agio Cigars and the musically-inclined Ernesto Perez-Carrillo, the term we’re looking for is “Dueto”.

A lot has happened since the last time I did The Week In Smoke. There was a tradeshow or two (less than five, certainly), the weather started to cool off again (sorta), people started putting pumpkin spice in inappropriate places (mouths, mostly), and we started doing numerical ratings here on Stogie Review (terrifying, but this […]
And now, our coverage of IPCPR 2018 is complete. We hope you have enjoyed the videos. As is tradition, here is our complete list of interviews for your convenience. Enjoy! Now it’s time to get back to our regular cigar review programming.

The cigars are the daily smoker cigars for the workers in the factory and is named after the area where they are […]
At long last, the marathon of IPCPR 2017 coverage is complete. It took a little longer than expected to get them all posted, but then, we filmed a few more interviews than we did last year. About a dozen more, in fact. That included a big expansion of videos covering products (and topics) related to, […]
The setup for Royal Agio was a little different at IPCPR 2017. When we met up with Boris Wintermans to talk, we did so in their own, dedicated booth. It marks a big change for Agio, this is their first year with their own organization in the U.S., and the beginning of a direct strategy […]
And our IPCPR 2016 coverage is complete. It took us a little longer to get everything posted, due in large part to our decision to switch our gear and software out all at once. But it all worked out in the end. We didn’t talk to everyone we wanted to interview, but we never do. […]
