Total Flame was finalizing a new cigar that didn’t make it to the show, but a rerelease and a new product were there to be shown off.

Tucked away in the back, there was a lull when I showed up towards the end of the day, but that wasn’t the case when I stopped by earlier to try to get the info on the new stuff.

Yes, this isn’t a cigar – but when things like FDA regulations hit, sometimes you have to pivot as a company. These are little tubes made of kraft paper that allow you to easily “roll your own” cigarettes, without actually having to have the skill of rolling anything. They come in boxes of 100 and will retail for $5 a box.

Back to cigars, the M-72 makes a return, with 2,500 more boxes coming to the US. These weren’t additional boxes that were rolled, but instead were reallocated from another country due to demand in the US.

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.
