About Dan Reeve
Dan Reeve - Executive Cigar Reviewer
As a professionally-trained graphic artist with a degree in Interactive Multimedia Design, Dan has developed a career specializing in high-quality print and online media development. With an uncanny knack for understanding people and solid work ethic have allowed Dan many unique business opportunities -- working with one of the world's most successful hospitality companies, as well as a leading manufacturing company providing solutions in optical disc storage -- to becoming the lead Web Designer for the undergraduate department of the largest higher education university in the United States.
Dan’s passion for cigars started on a whim years ago, when he was sent to buy a cigar as a gift for his future uncle-in-law. Upon entering the tiny shop and getting just a small taste for the cigar community created within, he was intrigued. He purchased a cigar for himself, sat down, and struck up conversations with the other locals. It wasn’t long before he wanted to know everything he could about cigars; the tobaccos and the farms, the production process, sizes, brands, and, especially, the people involved. Dan enjoys not only the taste of a fine cigar, but also researching the history that goes into the making of a particular stick. Any opportunity to learn the specifics about a cigar -- the countries in which a cigar is produced, the history of the company and its people, or learning about a certain blend or vitola -- these are the details that, to Dan, set apart each smoke from the next, thus creating a full cigar experience. Last year, Dan took the advice of his closest friends and focused his passion for cigars into creating an active, successful personal cigar blog. He has enjoyed watching it grow steadily and looks forward to many more reviews in the future.
“I am never shocked when I learn about a new type of cigar about to hit the market, but I am always amazed at just how far the manufacturers are willing to push the industry these days, all vying for the best possible cigar. We are living in a new golden age of cigars. There is truly something for everyone.”
