Jeff Gaston, in located rural southeastern Nebraska. Jeff is 34 years old with a career in Ultrasonic Inspection of metal materials, both manufactured and welded. GSTN Cigar was established in September of 2020 after Jeff complained about the design of an ashtray that his wife had gifted him. She told him to create his own, he did, and the company was born. They produce handcrafted cigar ashtrays from woods such as Walnut, Appalachian maple, Northern Pine, and Curly Cherry that sell both domestically and internationally. Two interesting facts about Jeff is that he only has one eye due to Glaucoma, and lost most of his taste buds when he was a child, which makes finding the right cigar a true journey.

This week, Drew and Joe interview Pat, Founder of Pardo Cigar. Pardo Cigar was founded in 2019 and brings high quality and affordable cigar accessories to fellow cigar enthusiasts. The founder, Pat, was having difficulty finding the balance between price and quality for cigar accessories. There were low-end cigar accessories to toss in your golf bag and high-end expensive cigar accessories, that were more like showpieces. He was on the hunt for affordability without sacrificing quality, and he had a feeling he was not alone. This led him to create Pardo Cigar.
