I hadn’t heard of Potter Cigars before, but brand owner David Potter was there to greet me and tell me about the new things they had available.

The bright yellows of the booth matched the yellow lacquer of some of the boxes, tying the booth and product together nicely.

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.
