    PCA 2021: Esteban Carreras (Audio)

    PCA 2021: Esteban Carreras (Audio)

    From the 2021 PCA Trade Show, we talk to Craig Cunningham of Esteban Carreras Cigars


    When it comes to Esteban Carreras Cigars, the company tends to focus its energy on one new release a year, and that new release always makes its debut at the PCA/IPCPR Trade Show. In addition, the company remains quite tight-lipped on what that new release is until the doors of the Trade Show open. For 2021, Esteban Carreras's release commemorates ten years of the line that many will say put the company on the map - that cigar is the Chupa Cabra 10th Anniversary.

    PCA 2021: E.P. Carrillo (Audio)

    From the 2021 PCA Trade Show, we talk to Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr of E.P. Carrillo!


    E.P. Carrillo has become the first manufacturer to exhibit two consecutive years as Cigar Aficionado's (CA) #1 Cigar of the Year, the industry's most prestigious award - namely because there wasn't any trade show in 2020. Still E.P. Carrillo has definitely been on fire the past few years. This year the focus was around the Perez-Carrillo lines, which saw the Pledge receive CA's #1 Cigar of the Year in 2020, the Encore receive #1 Cigar of the Year in 2018, and the La Historia receive #2 Cigar of the Year in 2014.

    PCA 2021: 7-20-4 Cigars (Audio)

    From the 2021 PCA Trade Show, we talk to Kurt Kendall of 7-20-4 Cigars.


    The story for 7-20-4 Cigars has always been about bringing history, nostalgia, and premium cigars together. That story continued into 2021, but this year was a little different in that there were several items behind the scenes going on at the company.

Great way to get your Cigar Industry Scoop!

I’m fairly new to cigars but I’ve gotten a lot of my info and learned a lot by listening to this podcast. Coop is old school and is a great interviewer. Aaron is chill and I’m a fan of his site too. Bear is too much at times with the brown-nosing but other than that he is a great interviewer. All of the shows under the Cigar Coop are entertaining, and now he has included the Cigar Jukebox. If you love cigars and the industry you should add this to the weekly rotation. The panel shows are my favorite for sure!

“um”

Intimidated by 3hour shows?? Just download the podcasts through your filler app.... click on “delete word” and type in “um”. You’ll knock off an hour easily. Another half if you type “uh”
