Royal Agio was inside the Drew Estate booth, as they are distributed by DE in the United States.

Of course, with the Drew Estate booth space comes lots of traffic. And while there were plenty of other brands being distributed by DE inside the booth–as well as all of Drew Estate’s new products–Royal Agio had pretty good placement, right inside the opening of the front of the booth.

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.
