IPCPR 2018: Gurkha

We dropped by the Gurkha booth again this year, and Carlos Llaca Torano took us on a tour of the latest cigars. We started with the Ghost Gold extension to the popular Ghost line. It sports and Ecuadorian Habano Rosado wrapper and has a pigtail and closed foot. Next we look at the Marquesa, which […]

IPCPR 2017: Complete Digest

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, […]

Gurkha Vintage Selection Shaggy Toro

When I was writing up last week’s Week In Smoke, I was a little surprised to discover we have never reviewed the Gurkha Vintage Selection Shaggy.

What a busy time of the year. Shopping for presents, travelling to deliver the presents, listening a friend or relative’s favorite yarn for the 12th time presented in stunning intox-a-vision, watching the new Star Wars, it’s hard to find time to sneak in a smoke. But somehow I always do. It’s either a gift or […]

East India Company Classic Cigar Havana Blend Robusto

It doesn’t matter how often it happens, getting cigars in the mail is always a source of happiness, especially when it’s unexpected. Back in December, the people at Gurkha sent me just such a surprise- the East India Company Classic Cigar Havana Blend Robusto. The name’s quite a mouthful, and the band is equally large, […]

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 50

It’s once time again for another issue of Brian’s The Week In Smoke. This one’s a little out of the ordinary, as it includes a birthday, which is traditionally my High MSRP Cigar Day. I didn’t succeed in spending a day doing nothing but burning high-end cigars, even though I made several attempts, but I […]
