I love the fact that I get to try all the new cigars when they come in. Now, granted, I don’t always enjoy each one, but I need to try them if I’m going to write copy for the website, so I savor the ones that are in my wheelhouse, and the ones that aren’t […]

Anticipation

Have you ever sat by your mailbox and waited for a tobacco or cigar order? I know I have done this way too many times than I would like to admit. I have ordered cigars before and if I did not receive a tracking number, I would start checking the mailbox after about two days. Then I would check […]
