Cigar Article: The Evolution of the Boutique Cigar Brand

At Toasted Foot, we always keep an eye to the boutique brands – we love their story, enjoy their smokes, and have a great time interacting with them and watching their growth. Over the last year or so, we got to know several brand owners very well, and began to count them as friends – Bryan at 13th Floor Cigars, Clint/Mike/Jerry at 262 Cigars, Brad at Jameson Cigars, Sean at El Primer Mundo, and Al at Berger & Argenti.

In the past, we at Toasted Foot have also been panelists for Smoke Magazine’s cigar reviews section. As I thought one afternoon about our relationship with these owners, and my contact at Smoke Magazine, I emailed Evan with a story idea, to spotlight the new crop of boutique owners. A few months later and the story has been released in the Fall issue of Smoke Magazine.

I’d love for you to read it and let me know your thoughts. So, please take a minute to check it out online here! And thanks for reading!
