Episode 7: An Interview with Vlad from Casdagli Cigars

Small Batch Cigar

I sit down with Global Ambassador for Casdagli Cigars, Vlada Stojanov. I join Vlad at The Clayton in downtown Chicago, where we discuss the name change from Bespoke to Casdagli, the Casdagli lines of cigars, what the future holds for Casdagli, and I pick the brain of a sommelier on how to develop your palate. It’s a fantastic conversation with a genuine BOTL who has a ton of knowledge. I hope you enjoy the interview.

I also congratulate CigarandThings from Instagram for winning the one-of-a-kind Simply Stogies ashtray.
