  • Quick Smoke: Viaje Stuffed Turkey White Meat

    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.” As a vegan, this annual holiday season release is about as close to turkey as I get. The Stuffed Turkey, available in both White and Dark varieties, became a separate line this year after three years under the so-called White Label Project. The White Meat (5 x 58) sells for $10 and features Nicaraguan Aganorsa binder and filler tobaccos wrapped in a Criollo Aganora leaf. I found this cigar to be spicy and satisfying, changing intensity…

    Since the current White House resident announced December 17 his plan to open doors to lift the Cuban Embargo the cigar world has been buzzing. There have been grumbles of everything from “finally we can get Cubans” to “there goes the industry.” One thing that we all need to consider is that the cigar industry is not the only industry that will be impacted and that not all impacts on the cigar industry will be positive at this time. Let’s break this down and take a look and some possible “side effects” of the embargo being lifted. The Good There are many positive factors…

    On December 17th, the White House released a statement outlaying a plan to normalize relationships with Cuba. This is a huge change after decades of Cold War policies in place, and follows a recent exchange of prisoners between both countries. President Obama, speaking about the changes, said, “Neither the American, nor Cuban people are well served by a rigid policy that is rooted in events that took place before most of us were born.” He goes on to add, “We are taking steps to increase travel, commerce, and the flow of information to and from Cuba.” There is finally going to be a…

    As we have since July 2006, each Friday we’ll post a mixed bag of quick cigar news and other items of interest. Below is our latest Friday Sampler. 1) On Wednesday, President Obama announced major changes for U.S.-Cuban relations as part of a prisoner exchange that was brokered with Cuban President Raúl Castro (pictured). While traveling to Cuba for tourism will remain banned, “licensed American travelers to Cuba will now be able to return to the U.S. with $400 in Cuban goods, including tobacco and alcohol products worth less than $100 combined,” according to the Associated Press.
  • Commentary: Keeping After the FDA and Cigars

    18 Dec 2014 | 12:00 am
    Reading about the recently approved $1.1 trillion federal spending bill, it was hard not to wonder where cigars were. After all, the bill was larded with special provisions on topics from Army boots to cow manure. It sure would have been nice if someone could have slipped in the provision barring the Food & Drug Administration’s (FDA) proposed regulation of premium cigars that’s been bouncing around Capitol Hill for several years. I talked to George Cecala in the office of U.S. Rep. Bill Posey, the Floridian who’s a leader in pushing the bill. Cecala told me they tried before to…
  • Cigar Review: Drew Estate Herrera Estelí Piramide Fino

    17 Dec 2014 | 12:00 am
    Back in May, on the heels of Nick Melillo’s departure, Drew Estate named Willy Herrera “master blender,” a role where he would help maintain current blends, produce new cigar lines, and report directly to Jonathan Drew. It remains to be seen how Swisher International’s purchase of Drew Estate may change Herrera’s position at one of the world’s largest handmade cigar manufacturers. But we know that Drew Estate management—including Jonathan Drew, Marvin Samel, and Michael Cellucci—are remaining at the company for the time being. And we know these individuals have a great deal of…
  • Cigar Spirits: Teeling Small Batch Irish Whiskey

    16 Dec 2014 | 12:00 am
    For the dozens and dozens of fine bourbons, ryes, and single malt scotches I’ve tried, I could count on my fingers the number Irish whiskeys I’ve sampled. Fact is, variety is tough to find when it comes to Irish whiskey, even at liquor shops that have an excellent selection of other whiskeys. These days you’ll often find more Japanese whiskey on the shelves. Still, there’s a lot to Irish whiskey beyond Jameson (not that there’s anything wrong with Jameson). And Teeling seems intent on proving that. Which is why I took Teeling’s marketing company up on an…

  • United States to Loosen Restrictions on Importing Cuban Goods

    For the first time in over 50 years, the United States government has taken steps to restore diplomatic relationships with Cuba. This morning, President Obama announced “a major loosening of travel and economic restrictions on the country. And the two nations are set to re-open embassies, with preliminary discussions on that next step in normalizing diplomatic relations beginning in the coming week.” Due to the changes in policy, travelers from the United States will now be allowed to bring back $400 (USD) in goods from Cuba per person, including $100 in alcohol and tobacco.

  • FDA Update: Support on the Congressional Front

    Ray
    18 Dec 2014 | 11:44 am
    Early this year, the news hit that the FDA is seeking to extend its control over tobacco products. If the FDA is granted this control, it will have a great deal of regulatory power over product packaging, marketing, outreach, and more. And if those products were to include premium cigars, that would mean an end to the beautiful packaging that we have come to expect on our premium cigar boxes. Artwork would be replaced by warnings (you can see an example here...), all of this in the name of preventing America’s youth from indulging in tobacco. Of course, as you and I both know, cigars are…

  • Great Neck Plaza, N.Y. Goes After Indoor Smoking Establishments

    Patrick Lagreid
    20 Dec 2014 | 11:16 am
    The village of Great Neck Plaza on New York’s Long Island is seeking the help of Nassau County to allow them to ban all businesses that primarily make their profit from allowing smoking. The push appears to be spurred by issues with a hookah bar in a neighboring village, according to a report on TheIslandNow.com. Village trustees placed a moratorium on such establishments in June, and earlier this week issued a negative declaration to the Nassau County Planning Commission, a step needed to get the necessary zoning adjustments made. A second reading of the proposal is slated for the…

    While the Columbia City Council voted 6-1 on Monday to raise the minimum age to purchase tobacco products to 21 and treat electronic cigarettes the same as tobacco as far as purchase and usage, that doesn’t mean the issue is completely settled. A group of citizens has organized a petition campaign to have all three ordinances reconsidered by the council, a move that could end up putting them on a ballot for voters to decide. The organizers need to gather 3,209 signatures on each petition by Jan. 5 to move the issue forward, something organizer Spencer Pearson told the Columbia Tribune…

    A smoking ban in the rural town of Liberty, Ky. lasted about a month before being repealed Wednesday at the town council meeting by a 5-1 vote. WKDO-FM reports that the ban on smoking in public buildings seemed to tread too far into government interference in the matters of private business for the town’s liking, as several residents spoke on that point. While there was a significant group of people there to support the ban based on health concerns, it wasn’t enough to sway the council. The revision must still go through a second hearing at the council’s Dec. 22 meeting…

Here are some pairing tips to bring these two great worlds together. First of all, if your only memories of tequila are rage drunks and insane hangovers, it’s time to update your software. Fine tequila isn’t the stuff you mixed with Mountain Dew in your dorm room, it’s a quality liquor that can reward the craftsmanship put into it. You can sip a…
  • 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…

    A new study from Professor Riccardo Polosa has found that second-generation e-cigarettes are effective for helping smokers quit. Two-thirds of the smokers studied, who had no intention of quitting, either stopped smoking entirely or reduced their daily smoking by at least half after starting vaping.

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts Every now and again it’s always nice to sit back and smoke a special cigar. One that you can’t find regularly and was given to you in a special place. Today was that day. I’ve been sitting watching this Liga Privada Unico Ratzilla sit and age in my humidor. I was given this cigar on my media Cigar Safari trip down to the Drew Estate factory in Esteli, Nicaragua last March. Finally, I’ve been waiting for a good reason to smoke it. Today, I was able to score a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle 20 year…

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts I’m always excited to learn about new cigars that are coming into the market. This My Father Connecticut was introduced back in the summer at the IPCPR show. I haven’t seen it on shelves for a long time, but when I walked into my local store, Stogies, the manager Patrick said I had to try it. So of course I’m going to oblige him and pick it up. This cigar is supposedly a continuation of the My Father and the Le Bijou line, just with a Connecticut wrapper. This particular cigar has an Ecuadorian…
  • La Flor Dominicana 1994 Conga

    7 Dec 2014 | 6:50 pm
    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Info: 1994 was the year that Litto and Ines Gomez left the jewelry business and started in the cigar industry. It is not the year that La Flor Dominicana was born, so this is not a 20th anniversary cigar. Instead, this particular cigar is to commemorate the beginning of what I would deem has been a successful run in the cigar industry. 1996 is when the LFD brand came into existence. Hopefully, we will see an anniversary cigar released by them in a couple of years as well. LFD is a brand that I always enjoy. Though many people smoke them…

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts I keep saying it over and over again, bourbon has the best folklore surrounding its origins. It’s hard to think of another product where so many stories can be told and based on someone’s historical relevance. It’s almost as if you had any sort of historical significance in Kentucky, chances are, you’re getting a bourbon named after you. Obviously, some are more notable than others, and that is clearly the case with this Colonel E.H. Taylor Single Barrel bourbon. Ole Col. Taylor is a mighty…

    17 Nov 2014 | 6:49 pm
    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Info: Last year’s Herrera Esteli was an instant success, being in high demand before it even hit the shelves. There was a ton of hype over it and I have to say it was warranted. The second offering from Mr. Herrera is the Norteno, which hit the shelves shortly after IPCPR this year. 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. This is the part of the country where Esteli is located. Esteli is where the Drew Estate factory is.

    CAO is one of the world’s leading producers of fine cigars. The company was founded in 1968, and their factory is currently located in Nicaragua. While their company is rich with history, they claim their passion is creating new cigars with mixes of wonderful tobacco. This is most obvious with several of the top cigars from their New Age line.

    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.

  • Why are there two different colors of EMS stamps?

    20 Dec 2014 | 4:22 am
    Question: Why are there two different colors of EMS stamps? Does the color mean something? – BA Answer: There are actually three different EMS stamps on boxes in circulation. The stamps themselves are place on the boxes of cigars by the UK importer Hunters and Frankau as a identifier that the box has been inspected for quality by the importer and to serve as an additional measure against counterfeiters. The original stamp was a money green paper one that was place on Havana’s imported into the UK between June 1992 and October 1997. It was replaced by a new style stamp in November…
  • What Does The Term “Booked” Mean?

    admin
    19 Dec 2014 | 5:14 am
    Photo by jamesjoel Question: While reading through your Cuban Cigar Primer, I came across the term “booked,” when referring to the tobacco bunching. What exactly is “booked?” Answer: It is when the torcedor (roller) bunches the cigar improperly by folding many or most of the leaves in half from one side rather then using an accordion fold or tubing the filler. If you look at the foot of a “booked” bunch you will see that the side where the fold resides is very thick and dense. It is called “booking” and/or “booked” because the way…

    Question: What do you think about the Sancho Panza Non Plus? I am looking for a good short smoke that will reflect the Cuban taste experience with as much power/kick as possible. Do you have any suggestions in the same relative size and price range? Answer: The Habana Sancho Panza Non Plus can be a pretty tasty Marevas, but they are not always consistent. Sometimes these 5 x 42 petite coronas are a bit too mild for me, and I find their flavor can vary. I wouldn’t dismiss them however, because when “they are good, they are really good.” If you are craving a strong Cuban short…
  • When To Stop Smoking A Cigar?

    admin
    16 Dec 2014 | 10:05 am
    Photo by Jake Sutton Question: When you smoke a cigar, how are you supposed to know when to stop, and when does the finish start? Answer: You should stop whenever the flavor becomes less pleasing to your taste buds. Sometimes this will be when a full third or more of the cigar is remaining, while other cigars you will want to smoke down until your fingers begin to burn. The term “finish” refers to the flavor and textures the smoke leaves in your mouth after every puff and not the end of the cigar. Essentially the word is utilized for a cigar in the same way as it describes the…

    Photo by alexbrn Handmade Cuban cigars have long been regarded as the finest in the world. Known for their rich flavor, silky wrappers, and exemplary construction they have become one of the most highly prized luxury commodities. As such, they are priced accordingly which makes them obscenely expensive for the average wallet. For nearly two centuries, regularly smoking fine handmade Cuban cigars has remained an indulgence for those “swells” who could afford the steep tariff. However, the Industrial Revolution nearly changed all that with its numerous man-replacing machines. The…
