IPCPR 2013 Rocky Patel interview RP Royale & Platinum cigars coming soon


Rocky Patel is a ROCK STAR in the cigar world. Everyone knows the name and everyone at the wholesale international trade show for premium cigars IPCPR 2013 wants to talk to Mr. Popular. How did I eventually catch him??? I don’t know, but I did. After knowing Rocky personally for around eight years, I still had to wait for his many photo ops with loyal customers who were attending the show. Rocky Patel introduced five new lines at the show and I had him talk to me about two of them: RP Royale and the PLATINUM. I smoked them both and I really enjoyed the Platinum the best, but like Rocky said, this cigar is for the more experienced smoker and might be a “bit too much” for the occasional smoker. If you know and truly appreciate fine top quality cigars, keep your look out for the PLATINUM coming 4th quarter to a specially selected retailer near you. And listen to ROCKY who said “these cigars will be hard to find…”

IPCPR 2013 Alec Bradley interview Las Vegas with Sam Philips VP


So much new and exciting things happening at ALEC BRADLEY. AB threw the biggest BASH for the IPCPR industry at the PALMS Hotel here in Las Vegas. The bar was open and the drinks were flowing and the DJ was mixing! What else? GOLDEN TICKET give aways! Whaaaaaaaat? That is right, Willy Wonka’s Golden Ticket give away was to be found inside 10 wrapped up “CHOCOLATE BAR” that looked just like Willy Wonka’s bar BUT, whats better than chocolate? How about THREE Alec Bradley Cigars….A night to remember and AB is a force to be reckoned with at the IPCPR.

A Bad Day in Copenhagen? LoL ! Let’s fix that!!

Nyhaven (New Harbor) (built in the 17thC) that's new?

Nyhaven (New Harbor) (built in the 17thC) that’s new?

It’s an absolutely magnificent day here in Copenhagen, Denmark. Unfortunately, today has not been a good day for me. Why you ask? Thanks for asking!

Because here it is, 5:30 on a beautiful day, and I still haven’t smoked a cigar. So we came to Nyhavn, a colorful 17th century waterfront canal, filled with tourists and overpriced mediocre restaurants.

Enjoying a meal in Nyhavn

I saw a perfect waterfront table for sitting down and smoking at a nearby tourist restaurant, albeit without ashtrays on the tables. So I proceeded to ask the gentleman working there, “Pardon me, are we able to smoke here?” He looked back at me with a silly grin, saying, “Of course you can smoke here, we’re outside!” Then I had to explain to him that in the United States, we are not free to smoke at outdoor restaurants, even though we are outside. OH WHAT A PLEASURE IT IS to be able to sit outside, enjoy a good meal, and smoke a cigar.

start small before a meal:Bolivar Short Belicoso Limitadas 2009

I sat down and I lit myself a Bolivar Short Belicoso Limitadas 2009. Out came my creamy fish soup and I realized I couldn’t taste my cigar anymore! It’s very mild and lacking full flavor. LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO BE SMOKING A CIGAR YOU ARE NOT THOROUGHLY ENJOYING! In accordance with my own rule, I proceeded to change to a Hoyo de Monterrey short Belicoso Limitada 2011. This cigar is more complex, more full bodied, rich and tasty.. A better accompaniment to my creamy fish soup on the harbor.
