The Cohiba Royale was released this week nationwide as Cohiba’s fullest bodied cigar to date. Another milestone that the Royale sets for Cohiba is that this is the first cigar line to be made in Honduras for Cohiba. The Royale uses tobaccos from Nicaragua, Honduras, and the Dominican Republic. All the tobaccos used in the […]

It’s always great to catch up with Sean Williams. We kicked off our annual tour of the General Cigar booth in the Cohiba section, where Sean gave us the scoop in the 2019 release of the Cohiba Spectre, a follow-up to last year’s inaugural release of the very limited, super-premium cigar. It may share the […]
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), […]

They are a little hard to find and no shops near me, at the time, carried United Cigar. The cigars from United Cigar are blended […]
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, […]

Cohiba is a popular brand, and Sean’s a popular guy, and he was busy every time I passed. Clearly General made a good call making him the Cohiba Brand Ambassador. […]
This week I lit up the latest addition to the Cohiba brand, the more accessibly priced Cohiba Blue. When Ben and I were down in the Dominican Republic touring the General Cigar facilities we got to see the boxes being painted in the factory.
