I happened to be in Austin this week and was determined to find time and make it out to visit a fellow geek @nirab
I only had a few hours and it was totally worth the trip out to Buda to see The Cigar Vault. Once I introduced myself to Brian, he welcomed me (as well as anyone else who came into the shop) with open arms and I felt as if I was part of the family. It was awesome to meet and hang with him for awhile. The Vault (humidor) itself and the history of the building is so cool. I only wish I had more time in town and I'm looking forward to trying a few of the new sticks I picked up as well (micallef, flatbed, plasencia etc).
So if you ever find your self in Buda, be sure to visit Brian. He's the real deal. Good time, fun place and great people.
