Cigar Review: George A. Rico aka G.A.R.

Cigar Review: La Aroma De Cuba Edicion Especial

One reason why I personally almost never order from online is because I like walking into a brick & mortar and being recognized by the owner or workers. Yesterday was a perfect example of this when I walked into the Cigar Vault in Brooklyn, NY. The owner, Joe saw me walk in and before you [...]
