Ian founded Dapper Cigar Co. in 2013 with the goal of making just one great cigar. That one great cigar started as Cubo Claro and was made at Gonzalo's small factory in the middle of Esteli, Nicaragua. Despite really only making cigars for himself and his friends, Cubo took off locally and the demand to carry it in stores put us in business. Years later we're making alot of great cigars and Ian spends his time doing all the small things that "glue" Dapper together. Branding, blending, proofing, and traveling across the country to sing the virtues of Dapper are amongst many of the jobs which currently occupy his time. Ian's currently based out of Central California and spends time between California and Nicaragua.
