Meet Me

My name is Jessica and this blog is intended to help guide novice cigar smokers and alcohol enthusiasts.  I want to provide a comprehensive and approachable overview of the world of fine spirits and tobacco.

I love what I do because I never intentionally set out to do this; passion led me here.  I have devoted myself to these studies for my own hedonistic desire to dissect and understand the complexities of flavor.  Let me share my passion with you!

Have a topic you’d like to hear more about or are you interested in an event?  Let’s Talk!
