During the final hour of the trade show, I was able to get to one final booth that hadn’t already packed up and left, as some smaller booths are known to do.

In a very nicely laid out 10′ x 10′ booth, Peter James Leather Co. had its leather goods, accessories, candles, incense, and oh yes some cigars.

The thing I’m sure most readers will care about are the cigars and perhaps to a lesser extent, its cases. While we’re not a fragrance review site, I will say the candles and incense at the booth are pleasant, with a slightly musky, woodsy scent that wasn’t overpowering. But I digress. Peter James Co. is coming out with two new cigars.

Los Estoico 54 Habano

The Los Estocio 54 Habano is the first of the two blends. Each blend only comes in a single 5 3/4 x 54 size.

Peter James Los Estoico LE 5-Cigar Case

Coinciding with the launch of the Los Estoico cigars is a limited edition leather case. It is made of proprietary leather and has a sealed zipper that keeps in humidity better than a normal zipper would. It comes in black and white, both featuring a gold accented interior.

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.
