  • I’ll Be Damned – That Cigar Actually Looks Like a Little Fish

    The room was dark and I found myself staring blankly at the ceiling. I had been awake for a few minutes and resisted the urge to roll over and look at the clock. It had to be close to 4:00am. Waking up like this, shortly before my alarm sounded, was becoming an all too common occurrence. I don’t know how long I laid there but the alarm sounded soon enough. I pulled myself out of bed, headed to the bathroom to clean myself, then headed out the door to put in some time at the gym. I stepped out of the gym some time around 6:00am and climbed into my car. I felt good. I was keeping on track…

    In the Cigar Community, the name Island Jim is one that seems to be gathering a lot of attention. Between Leaf and Bean in Pittsburg (which I hear is a great shop) and the Island Jim Cigar from Eddie Ortega’s Wild Bunch release, the man and face are becoming commonplace. I was recently gifted an Island Jim cigar that I had never seen before. The person that gave it to me was in Pittsburg with his wife while she attended some sort of business conference. While she was at the conference, he spent time hanging out at various cigar shops. Leaf and Bean was one of those shops. When he…

    Hialeah Gardens, Florida (May 22, 2015) - Six years after its initial release, Erik Espinosa of Espinosa Premium Cigars has announced that the "Murcielago" will fly again and should be landing in humidors nationwide after its re-debut at the 2015 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show in July. The Murcielago (Bat in Spanish) was first released at the 2009 IPCPR by EO Brands. It had a short production run due to the split with the original makers of the blend (Inspector's note: Don Pepin Garcia?). "Once the partnership with the manufacturer dissolved, we kept the name, but they kept the blend"…

    My favorite people in the cigar business are the ones you don’t know about. For many, Eladio Diaz is just that. Prior to Davidoff’s Oro Blanco marketing campaign, the company rarely mentioned Diaz. Even when visiting the company’s Dominican-based factory, we spent more time hanging out with a man called “Superman” than we did with Eladio—the man who runs the factory. Diaz’s title on a Davidoff website is listed as “director (of) quality,” which seems appropriate. His responsibility is overseeing the Occidental, O.K. Cigars and Cigars Davidoff factories in the Dominican…

    Fume D’Amour, “Smoke of Love,” is the latest release from Dion Giolito and Illusione Cigars.  This line was released at the 2014 IPCPR as a new core line to the brand.  The cigar is made at the TABSA factory of Casa Fernandez fame.  This is a change for Illusione which were formerly produced in Honduras.  This cigar has been produced using only viso and seco leafs, a lower priming on the tobacco plant, and no ligero at all.  This cigar is supposed to bring enough balance of strength while still producing ample flavors.

Manufactured at the Tabacalaera William Venture in the Dominican Republic, it was not surprising to hear this collaborative masterpiece has been making more than just waves within the cigar community.

The Epoca was initial brought out around 1930 by the New York City cigar company. The original Epoca also featured Cuban tobacco, obviously the “new” Epoca does not. Like most recent Nat Sherman releases, the Epoca is manufactured by the Quesada Family in the Dominican Republic. The original Epoca featured a Clear Havana wrapper, today the modern version is an Ecuadorian Connecticut. The cigar may not be the original, but…

The Screwpop Cigar Cutter is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a gadget designed to make it fast and easy to cut your cigars. It’s a tiny thing, not much bigger than a straight razor, and not too far off in appearance either. It’s small enough to fit on your keychain, doubles as a bottle opener (because really, why not?), and is…

  • Analog vs Digital Hygrometer : Which Is Better?

    Inspector
    12 May 2015 | 1:57 pm
    Stocking up on supplies for your first humidor? Building a wineador? One essential you absolutely must buy is a hygrometer. A hygrometer measures the level of humidity in your humidor, and lets you know if it is too high, too low, or just right. If your humidity drops too much, your cigars will dry out. If your humidity rises too high, your cigars will get musty, possibly even moldy, and may even attract pests. Hygrometers come in two main types: analog and digital. Analog hygrometers work using a spring which tightens or loosens depending on the humidity level. Digital hygrometers are…

  • Aging The Opus X: Do or Don’t?

    Brian Hewitt
    19 May 2015 | 9:00 pm
    A night or two ago I was smoking a well-aged Opus X Perfecxion No. 5. As is my custom, I spent a few minutes thinking about what I was tasting- grass, caramel, cedar, maybe a little white pepper. I also noticed it didn’t seem as robust a cigar as the last few Opus X’s I’ve had. That stands to reason, this little petite corona has been sitting undisturbed in a humidor for years. As with many of my cigars, extended aging is a cocktail of rampant impulse buys, accident, intent and disorganization. When it comes to the Opus, the cocktail is heavy on the intent. In the past,…

    16 May 2015 | 4:22 am
    Cigar Today I have a cigar that has been hanging around my humidor for a little while, the E.P. Carrillo La Historia. I honestly can’t even remember the price I paid but it seems the range is around $7-$9. I also do not know the size but I am pretty sure it is the Dona Elena at 6 1/8 x 50. If not then it would be the El Senador at 5 3/8 x 52. To me the ring gauge felt like a 50, no bigger and I do not have a ring gauge guide to measure. It also seemed longer than a 5 3/8 so hopeful my guess is accurate. Starting out the E.P. Carrillo La Historia with a wood base and a very slight spice.

For Christ’s sake, smoking that must be like putting your mouth around a big ol’…” You get the idea. Regardless of the phobias some people have about big ring cigars, they seem to be all the rage. I can remember a time six or seven years ago when I didn’t like smoking anything larger than a 50. Now I’ll have the occasional 64. In the end, it is more about taste than it is for my feelings on girth. This brings up an interesting question though. At what…

The vote was unanimous, according to a report in the Inquirer and Mirror.

    Nicholas King
    22 May 2015 | 5:25 am
    The dangers of tobacco smoke are well-publicized and well-documented. When smokers are asked to choose between smoking or quitting, most continue to light up despite the health risks. The nicotine addiction is too strong. If nicotine is considered a low-risk substance, however, a new option emerges: electronic cigarettes. Also called e-cigarettes, electronic cigarettes are one method of tobacco harm reduction (THR). Effective THR strategies can greatly improve public health. What is Tobacco Harm Reduction? Tobacco harm reduction aims to exchange tobacco cigarettes for nicotine delivery…
  • Five Little Known Facts About Electronic Cigarettes

    20 May 2015 | 6:06 am
    Electronic cigarettes hit the United States market 6 or 7 years ago, and they continue to grow in popularity. Often called e-cigarettes or e-cigs, these smoke-free devices are a recreational alternative to tobacco cigarettes. They look so much like the real thing, that they are often mistaken for real cigarettes. While both contain nicotine, e-cigs do not contain tobacco. Instead, they contain a mechanism that heats a liquid nicotine solution to create a vapor. Proponents say the vapor offers significant advantages over cigarette smoke. Government regulators and some health experts are…

    With electronic cigarettes, the potential for a smoke free world is within reach. Not only can e cigarettes eliminate the harmful chemicals that are associated with traditional tobacco, but they can also improve the lives of non-smokers by reducing second and third hand smoke. E cigs look, taste and feel like the real thing, giving smokers an alternative to smoking a “real” cigarette.   There are three basic components to the standard electronic cigarette: a battery, an atomizer and a cartridge. The cartridge contains a mixture of liquid that includes nicotine (for the most…

    Like yourself, I was sceptical that an electronic cigarette could curb the cravings I had for smoke. I smoked from 1 to 3 packs per day for the last 15 years. The first thing I’d do in the mornings was pour a cup of coffee and have a cigarette. On the advice of a friend, I bought an e-cigarette. I figured it would be cool at least for those many circumstances when I just couldn’t have a smoke. It arrived unexpectedly on a Saturday. I took it home, opened it up, read the directions carefully (yea right!), and took that first drag… “Wow! That’s weird” I…

Don’t worry; you are not the only one struggling to get rid of this addiction.  Almost two-thirds of the UK’s smokers, almost 6 million people, resolved to lead healthier lives by quitting smoking in 2012, as outlined by a recent survey.  In spite of their ideal intentions, the vast majority are sure to fail. Several harm-reduction tools present a substitute for smoking, probably the most debatable of which is the electronic or smokeless…

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Info: I’ll be the first to admit that I do not smoke Illusione cigars on a regular basis. There are definitely a few that I have really enjoyed, like the MJ12 Maduro and Rothschild, but overall, I have not been that impressed with the others I’ve smoked. Luckily, it takes a lot for me to completely write a brand off. According to the Internets, the Fume D’Amour (French for Smoke of Love) is the first addition to Illusione’s core line in three years. Seeing how it received the #3 award for cigar of the year from Cigar…
  • Cigar Oasis 2.0 Ultra

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings For years now I’ve messed with sponges, gel, water pillows, and virtually every other form of passive humidifying solutions. So, when Eric asked me if I would review the Cigar Oasis Ultra 2.0, I jumped at the chance! I received a Lucky 7 Humidor from my wife for Father’s Day a few years ago, and I’ve always had trouble keeping humidity levels acceptable – it wasn’t so much that the passive solutions I was using didn’t work, but rather I was too busy (errr, lazy) to keep up with making sure things stayed nice and, well……
  • Bulleit 10 Year Bourbon

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts: Because I am a fan of Bulleit Bourbon and an even bigger fan of Bulleit Rye, I was really excited to review Bulleit 10.  Their standard Bulleit Bourbon has a high rye content and Bulleit 10 Year Bourbon uses the same mash bill.  I am glad that Bulleit decided to come out with a 10 year bourbon.  I feel that 10 years is a very good age.  Let’s see what a few extra years in the barrel has to offer! History: Bulleit is another brand that is relatively new to the whiskey industry having been introduced in 1999.  Tom…

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts If most of you are like me, you’ve probably never heard of the brand of Debonaire cigars. I personally had never heard of them until I went to visit the Smith House here in Nashville about a year go. Once I was there I was introduced to one of the owners of Debonaire, Mr. Philip S. Zanghi III. We’ll call him Phil for short. To say that Phil is a character is probably the understatement of the year. Not only is he a character, he’s one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met in my life. After talking to…

  • Most Renowned Cigar Bars In The World

    Barbara Ruggiero
    13 May 2015 | 8:39 am
    Cigar bars a.k.a. cigar lounges are places specially designed for people to smoke cigars. Cigar bars have been in vogue for hundreds of years in various parts of the world. But the interest was rekindled during the late 1990s when most governments of the world began implementing smoking bans in public places. They permitted the setting up of special bars for people to smoke cigars and even cigarettes. True that some cigar bars permit people to smoke cigarettes, but a classic cigar bar will strictly focus on cigars. Some of the high class cigar bars in New York, Beverly Hills, California,…

    When you go to a cigar shop, or it cigar lounge, and you are looking for the best ones that are for sale, most people will purchase those that are handrolled, cigars that will cost $5 on up.

  • The Candela Cigar: Unique Among The Best Cigars

    Barbara Ruggiero
    21 Feb 2015 | 7:32 am
    Candela cigars have green wrappers which makes them the oddity among today’s cigars. Candelas were once the preferred cigar among American cigar smokers. These cigars were once so popular in the U.S. that they were called the American Market Selection. For about twenty years, from 1958 to the mid-70s, Americans smoked billions of candelas. The candela’s unique color is a product of how it is cured and aged. While once very popular, candelas are now more of a connoisseur’s choice. There are several machine-made brands of candelas, including Antonio y Cleopatra Grenadiers, Dutch Masters,…

    Rated a 93 by Cigar Snob in 2013, the popular My Father El Centurion cigar is the Toro. Due to the rarity of its Corojo wrapper, though, to call this masterpiece ‘limited edition’ would be an understatement. Only 800 boxes have been made! Along with its extraordinarily rare wrapper, this premium Nicaraguan smoke features perfectly ...

  • Why Are B&M Vape Shops All Such Shitholes????:(

    J.R. Reynoldson
    23 May 2015 | 3:40 pm
    The pink chair really complements the tacky neon signs. If, for some reason, you choose not to buy your vapes online, you most likely experience something similar to this when going to a vape shop: You drive out to the shitty part of town, and pull up to some run-down, decrepit looking strip mall and park your car. You get out, lock the doors, and push past 4 or 5 bums begging for change before you finally get to the front door of the shop that is wedged in between an adult store and a Mexican taco shop that is always changing owners because the previous one was serving food infected with…
  • The Mad Alchemist Juice Review

    J.R. Reynoldson
    22 May 2015 | 4:25 pm
    Another one of the juice brands that impressed me from the samples I received at the Vape Summit is The Mad Alchemist. While some juice brands clearly didn’t give a shit about their image, The Mad Alchemist was the exact opposite. They made an impression on me by having a member of their team dressed up as The Mad Alchemist himself. The mascot intrigued me enough that I had to try the flavors. I was surprised to find out that they weren’t just another company that used a mascot as a gimmick to distract everyone from the fact that their juice sucks. The Mad Alchemist’s flavors were…
  • Is This The Best DIY Vaping Channel Ever?

    J.R. Reynoldson
    21 May 2015 | 7:27 pm
    With future vaping regulations imminent, it makes sense for everyone who loves vaping to learn how to create their own DIY e-juice. Unfortunately, there haven’t been any really good YouTube instructional videos to help guide you through the process. So I was excited to find out about DIY or DIE, a new YouTube channel that will teach you how to make your own juice. This is the first video in the series, so there’s a few things that should be fixed to make it a better video: make it shorter, less of the “fuckin” speech impediment that a lot of people do instead of…
  • Shia LaBeouf Spotted Vaping in Los Angeles

    J.R. Reynoldson
    20 May 2015 | 8:50 pm
    For some unknown reason somebody took a picture of Shia LaBeouf driving a car in LA and vaping. Other than the obvious lack of safety consideration on display (only one hand on the wheel!) it’s pretty cool to see another celebrity hop on board the vaping bandwagon. Not as cool as that time when Leo DiCaprio upgraded his cigalikes to a mod and shuttled girls to a private beach, but still cool nonetheless. For further confirmation, I also found this picture of him with a vape in Tulsa, Oklahoma: I don’t really understand what’s going on in this picture, but he’s…
  • IPV4 Box Mod Review

    J.R. Reynoldson
    19 May 2015 | 5:47 pm
    The IPV4 was one of the most highly anticipated regulated box mods to come out in recent memory. While mechanical tube mods are still extremely popular, it’s undeniable that regulated box mods are the hottest trend these days. So it’s not too surprising to see how incredibly popular the IPV4 was leading up to its launch, especially considering the fact that it’s the newest version of the wildly popular IPV3. So does the IPV4 live up to the hype? While using the IPV4, it becomes obvious that Pioneer4You listened to the feedback from their customers and created a box mod that includes all…
