IPCPR 2016: Evil Genius Cigars


Evil Genius’ booth didn’t change much since last year, which is to say it kept a towering logo and some pretty cool artwork as its backdrop.

Alex Hirsch had a few things in the works, but the only one at the show–and the only one he was willing to release details about–is the new line by John Giese.

Evil Genius Goose Bone IPCPR 2016

Goose Bone

Giese partnered with Hirsch to resurrect this old brand from the early 1900s, and wanted to hit a low price point with it. His goal was to get you a good cigar at a cheap price so you had something reasonable to smoke while doing yard work such as mowing the lawn – hence the artwork on the front of the bundle. They are produced at J.C. Newman’s Puros De Esteli Nicaragua S.A. factory located in Esteli, Nicaragua.

About the author

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. Besides my cigar hobby and job in the IT industry, my wife and I love traveling, trying new restaurants and relaxing at home with our two dogs.
