Welcome! Light a cigar, pour yourself a drink, and enjoy scrolling through my portfolio.

 

As Cigar Journal's Asia-Pacific Editor, I don’t require much arm-twisting to light a cigar and enjoy a splash of rum all in the name of work. I have discussed cigars with the breadth of insiders, from leading manufacturers, cigar rollers to retailers, suppliers, brand ambassadors and cigar collectors -  interviewing legends and leading authorities of the industry along the way.

 

As well as Cigar Journal, I have contributed to other lifestyle and industry magazines, including Virtuozity, Australian Bartender Magazine, Drinks Trade, Canada's Lifestyler and the RTDA Report (now IPCPR)From 2006 to 2013, I published online cigar news and review site Inlumino Cigar News Australia.

I'm a member of Cigar Journal's blind tasting review panel and also review cigars for Cigar Sense.

I regularly host cigar events, including cigar masterclasses for private and corporate groups.

 

Cheers,

Sam
