My neighbors just around the corner back home, it took us both traveling to Las Vegas for IPCPR to finally meet.

Pospiech Cigars booth IPCPR 2016

Pospiech Cigars is a cigar shop, distributor and brand owner. The shop is Cigar Hustler, located in Deltona, Fla. while the brand is Powstanie. If that wasn’t enough, they distribute Guaimaro, Chogüí, and Fable. With the exception of Chogüí, all the rest of those brands are produced at RoMa Craft Tobac’s Fabrica de Tabacos NicaSueño S.A., so it was logical that they were located in the RoMa Craft booth. Even early in the morning, as it was the first booth I visited that day, they were getting plenty of traffic, which can only be a good thing.

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.
