Casper Cigar Company has a terrific selection of mostly boutique brands, including Black Label Trading, Caldwell, Southern Draw & Warped cigars.

I’m very happy to say the shop now stocks one of my all-time favourite brands:
Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust, made by the master himself, Steve Saka.

While enjoying a cigar at Casper Cigar Company during a stop along the way to IPCPR2018, I interviewed Josh who explained his journey into premium cigar appreciation.
A self-described “nerd” who likes to learn by reading fact-based manuals rather than fiction, he enjoys off-roading in his Jeep … and he’s a ham-radio operator. 180707 Josh at the counter Casper Cigar Company

 

Prior to opening Casper Cigar Company, Josh was on the road, visiting cities throughout the country.
His travels allowed him to try hundreds of different cigars.

 

As a result, not only did he find the cigars that are the perfect fit for his humidor, he was also able to do key market research on what made a cigar lounge truly great.

 

 

When it comes to tobacco, he loves what cigars bring to the experience … the nuance a particular leaf can bring to the blend – delivering taste & a variety of aromas.

He put those lessons to good use when he opened Casper Cigar Company a few years ago … a business that’s thriving today.

Josh explained that, for him, cigars are truly a family: “how can you not be passionate about cigars when they are made by people with whom you feel a deep connection?”
That’s how he decides what goes into his humidor. The cigars have to be the right fit.
As a result, the humidor has plenty of qualified options for every kind of cigar-enthusiast.

In terms of how he defines his own premium cigar experience, Josh describes himself as a “mood smoker” who selects a stick based on whether he’s looking for a mild, medium or full-bodied smoke. His shop reflects his personal commitment to the cigar lifestyle.

Casper Cigar Company has a down-home feel from the moment you walk through the front doors. You feel like you belong.

Casper Cigar Company is a strong supporter of both
Cigar Rights of America & Cigars for Warriors
They do the right things for all the facets of the cigar community.

Part of the result of that commitment is this cigar shop receiving the seal of approval from Cigar Dojo, one of the most discerning sites in the cigar world.

 

 

When it was time to cut & light for my CigarHerf, I chose the
Southern Draw Cigars – “Rose of Sharon“.

It’s a cigar that’s been getting plenty of attention from the cigar community and it delivers a great smoking experience:
“The Rose of Sharon embraces a unique blend that will enhance the current Southern Draw Cigars core line including the Kudzu – Oscuro and Firethorn – Rosado blends.
A very well-balanced cigar with Mild Body – Medium Flavor.

The natural cloud cover of Ecuador has supplied us with a prized wrapper, a velvety feel, gentle sweetness and a toasty burn, our beloved Nicaragua has gifted us with rich and elegant binder and filler tobaccos while the distinct Piloto Cubano of the Dominican Republic adds a dose of boldness and spice that allows this blend live up to its moniker. “She don’t know she’s beautiful!”

Besides the apparent beauty of The Rose of Sharon in its semi box pressed format, the release is a celebration of Grace and the devotion of Sharon Holt as she continues her daily service via strong faith and daily fellowship. “Much like a Rose, Sharon exemplifies the Southern Draws brand with her beautiful soul, humility and a “subtle” boldness which has made an incredible impact on so many lives. We truly needed to acknowledge her.”
