After taking a peak inside and under the lift-out tray I was quite impressed with the collection of lovelies I’ve been sitting on. At the bottom were a few Hemingway Signatures. I don’t remember …

    In case you haven’t heard, we recently wrapped up our third annual CigarFest. In the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, 1,500 cigar lunatics were let loose on an event floor with dozens of cigar, beer and spirit samples within a stone’s throw in every direction. Throughout the event, I spent a good deal of time with Michael Chiusano, owner of Cusano cigars. Aside from trying to …
