It’s been a whirlwind couple of days here in Las Vegas at the annual IPCPR trade show. I’ve had the good fortune to see a lot of great folks and wonderful new products as well as get to a couple after show parties. Monday night we went to the Toraño Party at Tao Nightclub in the Venetian, then with friends to Casa Fuente in Caesars Palace Forum Shops. The Alec Bradley party Monday night was hopping, it was outdoors at the pool at the Palms with an open bar and very loud music. After that we hung around the Circle Bar in the Venetian and schmoozed with a bunch of folks. Over the coming months I’ll be smoking samples and including videos related to them. I hope you enjoy them and while you may see the same information elsewhere, I hope I can add something a little different so it’s not just the same old information. We’re getting ready to fly home tomorrow night and as tired as I am right now, I had to get a post put together to serve as my regular Wednesday post. It may be a little early.
Today I had the good fortune to meet Chaim Kohn of Cigar Oasis and shoot a video of him explaining their line of products. Cigar Oasis has been around a long time and always seems to be improving and innovating. I was very impressed with the Caliber IV hygrometer which is a round digital unit made to fit where a round analog unit would be in in the lid of the humidor. It’s a sharp looking item. Chaim had e-mailed me inviting me to stop by the booth and on day 3 of the show I finally found him not too busy and he gives us this tour.
You’ll notice that I took camera man duties on this one, giving my wife, Jenn, a break. She’s been such a huge help to me on this trip and I can’t thank her enough. The downside is that the camera work suffers, but the upside is you don’t have to see me in the video!
Time to try to get some rest before wandering around Las Vegas looking for some cigar friends to hang out with.
Until the next time,
