While the smaller LH Premium Cigars booth was kind of tucked between some other booths, Nicholas Syris’ charismatic and energetic personality made it an easy one to find and visit.

President of LH Premium Cigars, Syris is also a partner of the Lavida Habana Cigar Lounges located in various Middle Eastern countries. While the lounges offer custom blended Cuban cigars, Syris wanted to extend his business to the US premium cigar market, thus LH Premium Cigars was born.

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.
