Between AVO, Camacho, Davidoff, Griffin’s, Room101, Winston Churchill, Zino and the lesser talked about Oettinger Davidoff Group brands—every year will be a busy year for Davidoff. Oddly the biggest splash in Orlando took place outside of the booth in the form of the inaugural Golden Band Awards—a ceremony honoring Davidoff’s top White Label retail merchants.

The Booth
It’s largely the same structure as last year’s award-winning booth from Las Vegas. The biggest change was the White Label room, which was glass with a roof.

I have been smoking cigars since 2005 and reviewing them as a hobby since 2010. Initially, I started out small with a 50-count humidor and only smoking one or two cigars a month. Not knowing anybody else that smoked cigars, it was only an occasional hobby that I took part in. In March of 2010, I joined Nublive and Cigar Asylum, connecting me with many people who also shared an interest in cigars. Reading what they had to say about brands I had never heard of, I quickly immersed myself in the boutique brands of the industry and it was then that cigars transformed from a hobby into a passion.
