Inside the CLE booth, Edgar Hoill’s EH Cigars and OSOK brands were setup on display.

Edgar Hoill Cigars display IPCPR 2016

EH Cigars was launched when Hoill joined up with Christian Eiroa after having previously worked with Matt Booth on the Room101 OSOK. Since then, Hoill has brought back the OSOK moniker under the new company. While there wasn’t anything new from either EH Cigars or OSOK, Hoill was busy enough with retailers that I didn’t even get a chance to get a quick video – which can only be seen as a good sign.

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.
