Other than moving around some of the display cases, Casa Turrent’s booth for this year’s IPCPR show was pretty much the same as last year. The company was showing off the Casa Turrent 1880 blend that was released late last year. That makes sense, as owner Alejandro Turrent told me that his goal for this year’s show was to concentrate on supporting his existing products.

Although he would not go into details, Turrent also hinted to me that he has some new projects he is working on for next year’s show, which made me think of 2016 when the company honored the namesake family’s history with two brand new lines in the Casa Turrent Serie 1942 and Casa Turrent Serie 1973. As has been the case the last couple of years, Casa Turrent was serving samples of Casa Turrent Gran Reserva Tequila Anejo, something I was finally able to try and enjoy.

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
