    Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.” This cigar has one of the primary characteristics that I look for in a limited edition: a distinctive taste. After all, what’s the point of a special cigar if it’s basically the same as those that aren’t so special? This year’s Full Moon, a five-inch stick with the same Nicaraguan blend as 2013, boasts a hearty, thick blend of wood, leather, and a bit of coffee bean before a touch of sweetness mingles in during the last third.

    This isn’t a normal Spirits write-up. Four Roses Barrel Strength Private Selection isn’t just one bourbon, but a barrel selection program. More details in a minute. But instead of burying the lead, it’ll come right out with it: If you want some really good bourbon you can actually find at a reasonable price, seek out Four Roses Private Barrel Selections. The more you get into bourbon, the more you find hype. There are lots of good bourbons (and ryes) out there, but many of the limited offerings are increasingly hard to find.

    A.J. Fernandez is one of the most respected cigar makers in the world. And deservedly so. He has one of the best résumés you could hope to come across in the industry. Born in Cuba, Fernandez worked with the late Alejandro Robaina, Cuba’s foremost producer of top wrapper leaves and the namesake of the Vegas Robaina brand. Fernandez quickly gained fame making cigars for other companies including Rocky Patel, Padilla, Graycliff, and Gurkha, as well as crafting exclusive cigars for catalog giant Cigars International (for whom he makes Diesel, Man O’ War, La Herencia, and others.)

    By now, you’ve probably heard or read about the findings of a new long-term study of cigar smoking that generated headlines like this one from Fox News: “Cigars just as harmful to health as cigarettes, study says.” Well, don’t toss your Davidoffs in the dustbin just yet. A closer look inside the numbers, along with some helpful responses from the study’s lead researcher, show that the results aren’t nearly that clear for those of us who enjoy premium, hand-rolled, all-tobacco cigars. First, and perhaps most importantly, the study made no distinction between those who smoke…

The factory was erected in 1868, but previously specialized solely in cigarettes. The high-quality cigars produced in the factory…

  • Why Can’t I Store My Cigars in the Box They Came in?

    admin
    12 Nov 2014 | 2:24 pm
    Buying a box of cigars that you love is a great investment, and will often save you a bit of money for buying in bulk. Plus, the boxes are often very cool in their own right, and can have a long life of other uses after housing your cigars, but one of those uses should not be storing your cigars and here’s why. In the environment where your cigars were crafted by hand, the temperature and humidity were probably near perfect for cigar storage (70 degrees, 70 percent relative humidity), so their nifty wooden box would be adequate storage. However, here in arid Colorado, cigars need some…

Cigars aren’t the sturdiest of items, so pack smart when traveling, especially if they’re going into checked luggage. That suitcase will be thrown, dropped, stepped on, thrown again, and maybe sat on for good measure. Protect your cigars in a travel case or improvise your own protection. If you’re only bringing a few, you can get a protective travel sleeve to fit inside your jacket pocket. Get a receipt. This is a tip specifically if you’re…

Peeling wrapper: You can avoid a peeling wrapper by ensuring your cigars are stored at the proper humidity level and not cutting beyond the cap, but if you still get a peeling wrapper, don’t despair.

Much like it’s predecessor, once they hit the shelves, they don’t last long! The name Norteno is a term referring to people from northern Nicaragua.

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts Noah’s Mill Bourbon,  is a unique bourbon in the fact that it’s somewhat difficult to find information about. From what I’ve been able to find, it’s labeled as a ‘Small Batch Boutique Bourbon’. That’s something that you typically hear in the cigar world, not usually in the world of bourbon. Nevertheless, I have the bottle, so I’m going to review it! What I have been able to find out is that this bourbon is actually sourced from a distillery in Kentucky. Mum’s the…

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts One of my favorite things about bourbon is the good ole folklore that surrounds every ounce of juice that comes out of those oak barrels. Basil Hayden’s Bourbon is no different. As the story goes in 1796 Mr. Hayden, who was a transplant from Maryland decided to come down to Kentucky and start distilling some whiskey. He had a radical idea to include rye in his mash bill. This was a unique at the time apparently. He believed that the spicy notes offered up by the rye would be a compliment and add some depth and…

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts Not a ton of information is currently available about this HM The King Scotch Whisky, other than it is produced in the Highlands of Scotland. It’s a blended whisky, a not single malt. I believe this is the first blended Scotch whisky that I’ve reviewed on the site thus far, so I’m intrigued to try it out. The only real back story that I got about this product is “The HM on the bottle stands for “His Majesty” the King, as the final blend was signed off on by the late King of Tonga.” So…

    Packaging You’ll first realize that this isn’t your typical vape pen when you look at the box. The matte finish and the intricately designed map of Snoop Dogg’s hometown of Long Beach put the packaging for other vape pens to shame. This almost makes me feel like I’m about to get the latest iDevice from Apple instead of a vape pen. Appearance of the vape pen The vape pen features the same map of Long Beach that is found on the packaging. It has a very expensive feel to it, with a rubbery finish and a little bit of weight to it. Nothing about this vape pen feels cheap so far. Grenco…

    When you’re smoking a cigar, you’re celebrating peacefulness, status, South American flair, elegance and other positive characteristics.

  • How To Recognize A Fake Cuban Cigar

      Fake Cuban Cigars   Making fake cigars is fairly easy and the profit margin is high enough for scam artists to take this risk. You might even end up with fake cigars sold by a vendor who was tricked by their supplier. Fake cigars can be found in the U.S. and in many touristic tobacco shops throughout the Caribbeans and South America. Beware of fake cigars if you get a chance to visit Cuba. Local sellers will approach you on the street and offer cigars at a very low price. Fake cigars are usually made from scrap tobacco and are not even worth the low price most sellers offer. Low…

    Where there’s smoke there’s fire, right? Proverbially speaking, yes. But when it comes to e-cigarettes, the age-old saying holds no water. The smoke produced by e-cigarettes (also known as electronic cigarettes, smokeless cigarettes and e-cigs) is actually a mist of vapor. Whereas real cigarettes work by combustion, e-cigarettes rely on the process of vaporization. As […] The post How do E-cigarettes work? appeared first on Ted Tobacco.
