IPCPR 2019: EH Cigars


Although the EH Cigars booth was a bit difficult to find, when I got there I was thrilled to see owner Edgar Hoill showing off a brand new size in his OSOK San Andrés line, which is made up of 100 percent San Andrés tobacco sourced from Mexico. The name OSOK stands for One Shot One Kill, a reference to Hoill’s time as a photographer.

As was the case last year, EH Cigars was located in Casa Turrent’s booth, basically taking up one shelf on the side. Hoill was also giving out free samples of tequila from a small barrel that I was more than happy to try.

OSOK San Andrés Cabronsito

While Hoill introduced the San Andrés line to his OSOK brand in 2018, this year saw the addition of a much smaller vitola in the line, namely a 4 x 44 petite corona named Cabronsito that is packaged in boxes of 50. According to Hoill, the newest vitola of the blend made up of 100 percent San Andrés tobacco from Mexico will be a limited production release and will be sold to only 50 retailers starting next month.

  • Wrapper: Mexico (San Andrés)

  • OSOK San Andres Cabronsito (4 x 44) — $5.50 (Boxes of 50, $105)

About the author

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.
