This year, we decided to give you a tour of the show through the pictures we took while we were there. Some are of new items, and some are just things we thought were interesting. We will have a new slideshow for each major manufacturer and one big one for the smaller manufacturers.

"This was one nice stogie. Flavors were very much to my liking, and only wish it was a larger size to enjoy it longer." -Robert (NavyPiper)
"This could easily become my go to morning smoke with a cup of coffee. The mild beginning transitioned to some bolder flavors nicely. Each third developed a distinct profile and stayed true. The leather really balanced the char and pepper, with the dark roast coffee at the end being a pleasant surprise." -Gregg (McGreggor57)

verall, this cigar could have been a lot better, but I have a feeling it's a cheap stick to begin with. The flavors were actually good at times, but the other problems outweigh those benefits. With an improved draw I could see this being a good budget Cuban, although I'm guessing machine-made, which I would probably not seek out. I would smoke it again, but I don't think I would go out of my way to find any more." -Emmett (rhetorik)
Drew Estate is adding a Petite Corona size to the Leather Rose, the boldest of the four Deadwood line of cigars. The new size measure 4 x 43 and was shown off during Drew Estate’s Freestyle Live episode on Sept. 16. It will ship October.
A new Petit Corona is the first line extension for the J. Grotto Silk boutique premium cigar from Paul Joyal’s Ocean State Cigars. The 4-1/4" x 41 Petit Corona is a departure from the extra-ring gauge Robusto (5" x 52), Gran Toro (6" x 52), Churchill (7" x 50), and commanding Gordo (6" x 60). The Gor do in particular has found favor with the new breed of cigar smokers who enjoy the shape’s long-duration, billowing smoke.

"I loved this cigar, one of the better ones I have reviewed in recent history. Everything from the flavors, transitions and the construction were great. I really liked this corona vitola, and I'm curious what other sizes it is offered in as I wouldn't mind one that lasts longer. I would recommend this to anyone assuming the price is right." -Emmett (rhetorik)

“If you are looking for a full bodied cigar that is a smaller ring gauge this is the one.” –Kevin S. (KBS1153)

"Have you ever lit up a cigar with no preconceived notions, and after the fist puff you say to yourself, or out loud "Damn, this is nice?" well I did and that same thought stayed with me the entire smoke. Just a great amount of cream/honey and sweetness. This would be an excellent first cigar of the day with or without coffee. My only complaint was it was so short, but maybe that was the maker's intention, to keep you coming back for more. I personally would like to keep these in my humi, for when I need that perfect smoking experience. " -Mickey T. (irratebass)
