    This week, Tatuaje Cigars announced their latest shop exclusive, the “Tatuaje W Nice Ash Cigars 2015″ or, as it has so endearingly been nicknamed, the “Whore,” for Nice Ash Cigars, a New York based online retailer and B&M. A website, wcigar.com, was set up leading up to the announcement where one letter was announced each day eventually spelling out “whore.” This is Tatuaje’s third shop exclusive this year, following the Drinking age and the Rumbo.

    Many of you will remember the feature and giveaway we ran for cigar artist Darrel Morris late last year. It was a very popular feature that garnered a lot of wonderful comments and participation. For those of you who might have missed it, Darrel Morris is an amazing artist who works in scrimshaw, which is engraving into bone or ivory. His drawings are remarkable in their detail and realism. They capture not only form, but texture, and most importantly, his love for cigars. Darrel is in something of a jam. Six years ago, he and his wife lost their jobs in the recession.

    A couple of weeks ago I published a review of the Inferno 3rd Degree, a cigar produced by Oliva for Famous Smoke Shop. Despite the cigars not being quite what I was expecting, I enjoyed the samples. Actually, I enjoyed them enough to put in an order for the original Inferno for comparison. During that review of the Inferno 3rd Degree, I mentioned that Famous was kind enough to also send a few El Mas Chingon Cigars for me to try as well. These cigars are a Famous Smoke Shop Exclusive produced by Room 101. Now, before we get into the review I need to take you on a little detour. For those of…
  • Oregon Tobacco Shops Dodge New Licensing Fee

    A proposal to require Oregon tobacco shops to pay a certification fee was defeated yesterday by a 27-32 vote in the House. Senate Bill 416 had passed the state senate earlier in the week by a 16-13 vote, and seemed destined for passage in the house as well. It called for shops to pay for a new certification that would allow customers to continue to smoke inside, an exemption granted by the state’s Indoor Clean Air Act. The fee would have been set by the Oregon Health Authority, and it was that aspect that caused Rep. Brent Barton (D-Gladstone) to vote against it, noting the…

    If Americans suddenly doubled their demand for vodka it would take the vodka makers only months, or at most a year or two, to increase their supply to match the new demand. Not so for bourbon. When the public suddenly wants more well-aged bourbon, increasing distilling capacity today won’t do anything to change supply for […]

    Undercrown Manifesto (AKA “Liga Krump”) The Undercrown Manifesto is a very unique cigar with an equally unique origin. In January of 2013, John Krump, a fellow Brother of the Leaf, just like you and I, purchased an antique German cigar mold off of Craigslist. Upon acquiring the mold, he posted a photo of it on a cigar oriented Facebook group to share his excitement about his new find. Among dozens of comments on the photo, Jonathan Drew, of Drew Estate mentioned that he was very interested in the mold and asked John Krump if he could check it out next time he was in town, which…

As the taste of cinnamon is a heavy hitter in the booze business these days, Solfyre is bringing the fiery flavor to the world of premium cigars. To achieve the red hot zest of Solfyre, CAO built a blend of mild Dominican tobacco, wrapped it in a grade-one Cameroon wrapper and infused spicy notes of cinnamon, with the smoky essence of whisky. Solfyre will ship this month, and will be available in three sizes: Cigarillos 4” x 30 — $16.99 for a tin of 10 cigars Corona 5 ¼” x 42 — $6.39…

    This year we're as usual a bit late with the 'best of' Cuban list, sorry about that. On the bright side, this delay gave us a chance to smoke all of these cigars again in the beginning of 2015, which confirmed the ratings. Like last year, the list is composed of cigars that we smoked in 2014 (with mostly recent box codes). Without further ado, here's the list. 1. Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure de Luxe Surprisingly, the Hoyo de Monterrey brand secures the #1 spot again! This time it's a LCDH-exclusive release called "Epicure de Luxe". It's definitely the best Cuban cigar I smoked in 2014 and I…

  • Whisky Review: Talisker Skye

    A couple years back I reviewed the Talisker 10 Year Old, a Scotch whisky with flavors of peat, seaweed, fruit, spices, wood, and … peat. Lots of peat. Just what you would expect from a Scotch whisky. I enjoyed it quite a bit, so when I found out that Talisker released a new whisky earlier this year called the Talisker Skye, I knew I wanted to try it. While I enjoy peat in my whisky, I can see where a lot of Talisker whiskies might be overwhelming for other drinkers. The Talisker Skye has been aged in refill and toasted American oak casks so that it will have a milder peat flavor. The…

These are not full cigar reviews, but quick blurbs based on a single smoking experience. As such, they may be influenced by the natural variations that occur from one cigar to another. Your mileage may vary. (If I know the cigar well enough…

    The aging room at Tabacalera de García is probably the biggest in the world, after all the Dominican factory owned by Altadis USA is the biggest cigar factory in the world. While the name implies that the cigars might have gotten lost, Altadis USA isn’t claiming in any press material that the company lost track of the 50,000 cigars being released as part of the two-vitola Trinidad Lost Blends. Instead, the company claims the cigars were stored in the aging room until they were ready, which is now. Lost Blends is offered in two vitolas, each using an Indonesian wrapper, Dominican olor…

    Earlier this week, Pete Johnson showed off something that looked rather familiar to the Tatuaje Monster Series; it’s not, but it was intentional. Instead, the Tatuaje The Jackal is the latest exclusive for Casa de Montecristo of Countryside, Ill. The store said that it was inspired by the jackal of ancient Egypt, though the description sounds more like, Anubis, the Egyptian god represented as half man, half jackal. Anubis was considered a protector of graves and key for the afterlife. Warped Cigars previously made a cigar known as Anubis prior to its relaunch last year. The boxes for The…

Desktop computers become laptops, which become netbooks and then tablets. Cell phones started big and clunky before slimming down considerably—anyone remember the Motorola RAZR?—before the era of the large-screen smart phone came along and brought about the phablet, the device with the five to six inch big screen that still fit in your pocket.

  • Cigar Smoker Profile: Winston Churchill

    admin
    9 Jun 2015 | 1:14 pm
    Winston Churchill was known as a great speaker, a leader in World War II and the greatest Briton. After spending time in Cuba as a war reporter during the War of Independence, Churchill also became known as a devotee of Cuban cigars. He often joked that Cuba was always on his lips. Winston Churchill was born in 1874 and did not appear to be bound for greatness, as his father often reminded him. He barely made it into Royal Military Academy Sandhurst after spending his youth bouncing from school to school. In Sandhurst, he thrived and went on to begin his career as a war reporter after…

    As a smokable art form, cigars can be paired with numerous foods and beverages. If you enjoy cooking, here are some ways you can use flavors to create amazing dishes while adding depth to your cigar and food pairings. Truffle salt. Yeah, it’s like $30 a bottle, but it’s going to transform your vegetables into savory powerhouses in an instant, and only a sprinkle works wonders. Try it and you’ll be hooked. Smoked salt. It’s a simple fact that everything tastes better cooked over fire. If you don’t have an open fire handy, a pinch of smoked salt can add the perfect…

Few entertainment choices pair as well with cigars as football, but here are some ways you can pair them up even better. Make bold beer choices. If you’re going to have beer and cigars, the more flavorful your beer the better the pairing. Of course everyone loves a nice cheapie session beer for the game, but have some quality stuff on hand as well. Keep cocktails simple. If you’re offering the hard stuff,…
  • Are Cuban Cigars Legal Now?

    4 Jan 2015 | 6:27 am
    On December 17th of 2014, President Obama announced an intention to reestablish diplomatic and economic relations with Cuba. That’s great news for many families that have been torn apart, but for some of us it begs the question- are Cuban cigars legal now? The short answer: No. Or, at least not yet. President Obama needs the approval of Congress before the plan can go into effect. If everything goes according to plan, however, you will soon be able to see if Cuban smokes are worth the hype. Which brings us to the next question: are they? In the fifty-plus years since the embargo, many…

With the recent market boom of e-cigarettes and the attention of the national media onto their ingredients and safety, it’s important to make sure you’re getting the honest facts. This is especially true if you’re an e-smoker yourself, you should know what you’re inhaling at all times!Propylene Glycol SimplifiedA Barebones LookPropylene glycol is pretty simple in its pure form, which is a good sign in something you’re ingesting.  As a liquid at…
  • Should E-Cigarettes be Allowed in Public?

    Here in 2015, most of the country has realized that smoking is bad. It has become impossible to enjoy a cigarette indoors in public for what seems like years now and the stigma that is associated with smoking is bad! But I ask the question, should e-cigarettes be treated the same? In my opinion, definitely not, but that maybe because I enjoy vaping myself.Despite the fact that e-cigarette makers claim that the “water vapor” emitted by their devices does no harm to people that are subjected to it (a claim still not verified by the FDA), it is undeniable that e-cigarettes send a bad message…

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts It’s that time of year, all the cigar brands are starting to release their 2015 releases right before the IPCPR show. This Camacho American Barrel Aged Cigar is one of the first ones on the market this year and it’s making a huge splash. It seems to be the cigar every one is talking about right now. It’s even spurred some interesting conversations / editorials that are challenging the industry to not be ‘copycats’. This cigar however is something that out the outside really looks to appeal…

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts It’s time for the next limited edition from the fellas over at Crowned Heads. This time it’s the Las Calaveras 2015 edition! After the enormous success from last year’s release everyone knew that the 2015 release was going to be flying off of the shelves. Sure enough as soon as they announced they were taking orders they were sold out to retailers in less than a day. It actually was probably hours, but I couldn’t find the exact tweet that Mr. Huber sent out. In case you missed it last year, the…
  • Ezra Zion Tantrum PA Edicion Limitada

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Info: Ezra Zion is one of the recent boutique brands that I consistently hear or read good things about. Though I have wanted to try some, I hesitated due to lack of availability in local shops and the often-high price tag (usually $10+). Let’s face it; I am a bit of a tight wad! The Tantrum PA (which stands for Passive Aggressive) is a limited edition cigar. It follows the release of the Tantrum, which was a smaller vitola, a Prensado Pequeño 4×44. I saw differing information on the number of boxes produced, but it looks…

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts I’ve been going back and forth between Cubans and non-Cubans for awhile now. I’m decided that I really enjoy both, a lot! The only thing that I don’t like about Cubans is the fact that it’s hard to find great information about each particular blend. I’ve checked out the Habanos SA official site and didn’t lead to much information either. I know Partagas is a company with rich history and culture throughout Havana. I was very excited to smoke this Partagas Serie P No 2 Torpedo /…

    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…

  • Most Renowned Cigar Bars In The World

    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,…

  • 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,…

    21 Jun 2015 | 10:00 am
    The Aspire Platinum Kit is a well put together, excellent starter kit that includes everything that you’ll need to start sub-ohm vaping without any technical knowledge. It includes a carbon fiber sub-ohm battery, Aspire Atlantis sub-ohm tank, USB cable, leather case, and replacement coils. An authentic kit with full warranty will run you about $92. This kit comes with a decorative webbed style tank that is different from the normal Aspire Atlantis with the same functionality. I think it looks pretty neat and, combined with the expensive-feeling leather case, would make this kit a great…

    The main character in the Metal Gear Solid video game series has always smoked, but it seems like he’s finally made the smart choice and will sport what appears to be some kind of e-cigar in the new Metal Gear Solid V. Maybe he’s finally becoming aware of his own mortality and wants to make healthier lifestyle decisions. Plot twist: The vape is actually a mechanical mod and he doesn’t understand battery safety, so he can throw it at enemies when it’s about to explode! (Just kidding, that’s not really a part of the game.) The post Main Character in New Metal Gear…

    We all know that Leonardo DiCaprio has never been shy about his passion for vaping, having been previously photographed vaping with girls on a private beach. Well a few days ago Leo was spotted puffing away on his mod with charging cable attached while viewing more than $3.4 Billion worth of art at a prestigious exhibit in Basel, Switzerland. He appeared to be viewing the exhibit alone, meaning that he left his Sports Illustrated swimsuit model girlfriend at home this time. Looks like Leo has his priorities in order: Vapes > Bitches. Fucking Badass. Related PostsLeonardo DiCaprio Upgrades…
