IPCPR 2019: Gran Habano

Null

The final day of the trade show is traditionally a slow one, so I found Gran Habano president George Rico sitting with the gentlemen from Honolulu Cigar Co.

While they might have been talking business at some point, when I showed up it was all about some chicharrones from a local Hawaiian store and a hot sauce that was bringing most of us to tears. Rico made sure to recover enough after eating a handful of the chicharrones dipped in the hot sauce to do a quick video about what was coming from Gran Habano.

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.
