Housed inside the Oveja Negra Brands booth, the Emilio corner was getting just as much traffic as the rest of the booth was.

With two new releases—a regular release and a limited edition—there was certainly reason to be in that corner. With a break in the retailers, I was able to get the info about the new lines along with some photos of the new cigars.

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.
