IPCPR 2019: Powstanie


Powstanie is part of the NicaSueño family, and thus was in the RoMa Craft booth with the rest of the brands that are made at the factory.

Since Pospiech Cigars owns the Powstanie brand, but also distributes multiple other brands including Guáimaro, Mike Szczepankiewicz covered both brands for us. Besides cigars, Szczepankiewicz also had two guns on display, though he gave me no tickets to the gun show.


Wojtek is the name of a Syrian brown bear who was an enlisted soldier in the Polish Land Forces branch of the Polish military. While the story is much longer and much more interesting than that short sentence, the cigar is named Wojtek with the nickname War Bear.

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.
