IPCPR 2017: Zander-Greg

Null

It took me a couple of passes to realize the Zander-Greg booth was who they were, as the Nat Cicco brand was more prominently displayed than the Z logo, and I was too tired to put two and two together.

It was towards the end of the day, so everybody was mostly clearing out. However, there were still a few retailers dropping by the booth before we were all kicked out of the show floor.Casino Real

About the author

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. Besides my cigar hobby and job in the IT industry, my wife and I love traveling, trying new restaurants and relaxing at home with our two dogs.
