And now, our coverage of IPCPR 2019 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. Have a fine weekend and a fine cigar!
Once again, the season of lists is upon us. And in keeping with tradition, we err on the side of caution when it comes to creating our list of the top 10 cigars for the year. The goal is to publish after we’re certain the old year is completely dead, but just before people get […]
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, […]
We caught up with a slightly tired Jon Huber in the cozy Crowned Heads booth nearing the end of day two at IPCPR this year. He shows us the popular new Four Kicks Maduro, which is the same blend as the original Four Kicks, except with a Connecticut Habano wrapper. Jon mentions another extension to […]
Thanks to some poor lifestyle decisions made by a younger Brian and the present day dental consequences, I haven’t been able to enjoy that many cigars over the past week. So how can you post a new Week in Smoke? Asks the reasonable reader. Easy, is my response, these are all smoking visualization exercises, what […]

Jon Huber of Crowned Heads graciously stepped aside for a few minutes on the busy first day of the trade show to talk to us about they brought to IPCPR this year. In this video we cover La Imperiosa, Jericho Hill Jack Brown, the next Mason Dixon Project.
Now that we’re all safe from 2014, but not completely comfortable writing (or typing) 2015, it’s time for my annual top ten list. As I’ve said numerous times over the past year, it isn’t good enough for a cigar to just be good anymore, it has be to excellent to really make a go of […]
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), […]
Crowned Heads introduced the Tennessee Waltz this year to only their retailers in the state of Tennessee. This cigar, made by My Father Cigars, is based off the song, Tennessee Waltz which was playing in the dance hall where Jon Huber’s maternal grandparents met. The cigar features a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper along with binder and […]
