    Reading the past weekend’s Wall Street Journal, it was difficult not to think about cigars. No, I saw no stories about tobacco industry consolidation or the potential dangers of possible spreading FDA regulation. But there were thought-provoking revelations about other pursuits that called cigars to mind. On the cover of the “Off Duty” section was a major piece delving into big changes in the luxury watch market. The new trend is a shift from big, complex watches to what the author called “simpler models… sleek and elegant timepieces that are smaller than a sundial…” A Montblanc…

    Earlier this year, Fred Rewey, owner of Nomad Cigar Co., handed me an unbanded cigar. I took a few cold draws, another glance at the dark wrapper and one warm puff and it was apparent, Rewey’s next line was coming from Tabacalera Fernandez S.A. Rewey’s original plan was to have that cigar out a month before the 2014 IPCPR convention and trade show earlier this month, but as it so often does, the Nomad C-276 will ship later this week. It uses a dark Ecuadorian habano oscuro wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and five different Nicaraguan fillers including ligero from Condega and Estelí. The…

    Christian Eiroa may not be as widely known as some other cigar blenders, but he has created an indelible legacy. His Camacho brand helped create the market for strong cigars that now forms a permanent part of the industry, while his Camp Camacho in Honduras was a pioneering effort in the growing trend of cigar tourism to Latin America. But Eiroa, a young man with a new operation, is anything but a historical figure. These days, he’s putting terrific new cigars on the shelves at a fairly rapid pace. I’ve been strongly impressed by his Eiroa line and other brands in which he’s had a hand,…

    In this latest segment of Random Thoughts from the Humidor, I examine one of the wonders of cigars, contemplate new releases, and urge action. Slow, Steady Burn It’s easy to ignore the burn of a cigar. After all, that’s what it’s supposed to do, right? But a perfect burn is truly something to behold. I reflected on this the other evening as I was sitting outside and enjoying a My Father. About a quarter of the way in, I became fixated on the absolutely perfect burn. It continued that way right to the end. That’s no simple feat. Combining tobaccos with different burn qualities,…
  • Cigar Tip: Maintaining Proper Humidity with Boveda Two-Way Packs

    28 Jul 2014 | 1:00 am
    In a perfect world, I would have one large humidor, preferably a walk-in, with all the cigars easily accessible, sorted by name, and labeled with received dates. It would make aging simpler, humidification easier to monitor, and my whole stash more organized. Reality is much different. At any given time I have anywhere from five to seven humidors. The variance is explained by the fact that, depending on inventory, I sometimes outfit two large Tupperware containers with Spanish cedar to store spillover smokes. While I’d love to just have one humidor instead of a handful of medium- to…
  • Quick Smoke: Crémo Classic Maduro Intrepidus

    27 Jul 2014 | 1:00 am
    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’s velvety notes of espresso, marshmallow, dark chocolate, and dry wood leave a lasting impression on the palate. Even more interesting from the Crémo Classic Maduro is the resting smoke, which has a sweet aroma of candied nuts. This blend—a dark Mexican wrapper around Nicaraguan tobaccos—also performs well in the construction department, exhibiting a straight burn, solid ash, and good draw with ample smoke production.

Continuing with a newcomer's perspective on cigars, I have selected the Trinidad Coloniales for this review because it's a mid-range Cuban, quite affordable and, at 45-60 minutes, easily digestible for the inexperienced palate.

    One of the great aspects of cigars is the depth you can find with food and beverage pairings. Forget the lowly cigarette after a cheeseburger; cigars are works of art that can work with a nice whiskey to unravel flavors in both the drink and the smoke. Denver is rapidly becoming a mecca for beer lovers, so we wanted to offer some tips on pairing your cigar with beer. Opposites attract! If you’re new at pairing cigars, an easy trick is to look for opposite qualities that will ultimately complement one another. For instance, if you’re drinking a nice bitter IPA, look for a mellow,…

    If you don’t regularly sniff out cigar news, you may have missed this news item about the Food and Drug Administration’s plan to crack down on other forms of tobacco, in our case- cigars. As it says in the article, the plan might exempt ‘premium’ cigars over $10, which would still be a huge blow to the industry, and the average Joe who enjoys a perfectly fine $7 stick. While this proposal is galling, especially since cigars are almost universally enjoyed responsibly, in moderation, and the health risks are very low, you aren’t powerless to sit back and take it.
  • What Is Shade Grown Tobacco?

    There are numerous types of tobacco used in cigars, with each seed variety and growing method affecting taste and texture. As you browse cigars, you may encounter shade grown tobacco and not know what that means, so here’s a quick overview of this growing process. When most people think of cigar tobacco they think of the tropical Central American regions that primarily produce it, but tobacco has been grown in North America since the American Indians grew it as early as the 1600′s. The fertile Connecticut river valley is one of those regions that has been producing fine tobacco…

First of all, why keep them out of a bag at all? You would be hard-pressed to find a drier climate to enjoy cigars than arid Colorado, so a sealed bag is your cigar’s best friend! But if you can’t keep them in a bag for whatever reason, how long will they survive? When your cigar is exposed to our dry air it will immediately begin to dry out, but the quality impact takes a bit of time. Having a cigar in your breast pocket for…

Officials had proposed restricting direct sales to consumers, classifying the devices alongside nicotine patches and other smoking cessation products that require a prescription.

    The FDA, which claims to stand for “science-based regulation,” seems incapable of drawing even the most basic of conclusions: e-cigarettes, regulated or unregulated, are vastly safer than tobacco cigarettes and should be treated as such.

  • Follow up – Experts Plead To WHO

    Nicholas King
    25 Jul 2014 | 5:53 am
    One of the biggest debates going on at the moment with health experts is whether the electronic cigarette leads to the gateway of smoking regular cigarettes. Electronic cigarettes are not intended for vapers to start smoking, it’s exactly the opposite. However that being said a number of medical and health experts believe electronic cigarette are “a Trojan horse that will allow the tobacco industry to reverse decades of global progress in reducing smoking prevalence,” says the CMAJ editorial on CMAJ. As you can imagine, with all the recent buyouts of electronic cigarette…
  • Report States Children Are Trying E Cigarettes

    15 Jul 2014 | 4:30 am
    It was recently reported by the BBC in the UK that 24% of 13 and 14-year olds in Scotland have attempted, or tried an electronic cigarette, a new survey has found. And only just under half of those (48%) saw the electronic cigarette at School, based on the ASH Scotland study. In the 15-18 age group, 48% of those who completed the survey said they have tried electronic cigarettes. But more than three quarters (78%) of 13 to 18-year olds who tried the electronic cigarette have attempted the regular cigarette. But what do these statistics tell us? Well to be honest not much, let’s face it when…
  • FDA To Spend $270 Million on E Cigarette Research

    7 Jul 2014 | 9:16 am
    One team of researchers evaluating the health hazards of e-cigarettes is starting a survey with a number of volunteer “vapers.” Another group will examine Facebook for posts on how individuals are altering the atomizers to increase the nicotine content with the vapor. A third group is building a virtual online store for 13-to-17-year olds, quantifying how e-cigarette are being marketed to minors. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is spending $270 million on these studies and 45 other research projects to discover the hazards of the electronic cigarette before millions…
  • The Truth Behind The E-Joint

    A Dutch company has launched the world’s first electronic cigarette, but with a bit of a difference, named the e-joint it won’t take you long that it actually isn’t nicotine your smoking but cannabis. Shaped like a typical joint and having a natural looking marijuana leaf illuminating via a chrome-coated tip each time you have a suck in the e-joint, it is suppose to give you the same hit as a regular joint but without the harmful chemicals produced when burning tobacco. However all is not what it seems, the e-joint manufacturers, E-Njoint, are claiming that the e-joint is 100% legal as…
  • Experts Pleed With WHO on E Cigarettes

    Nicholas King
    2 Jun 2014 | 4:31 am
    50 researchers and health specialists have put a letter together pleading with the World Health Organization (WHO) to “resist the urge to control and suppress electronic cigarettes”. They state that the electronic cigarette is a “significant health innovation”. But the Faculty of Public Health in the UK says it’s too early to understand whether benefits outweigh possible hazards. The WHO said it was determining what recommendations to make to authorities. Over 50 leading scientists from 15 states have written to Margaret Chan Director General of the World Health…

  • Davidoff Millennium Blend Robusto

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts Apparently, when the new Millennium rolled in Davidoff decided it was time to change things up a little bit. They crafted the “Millennium Blend”. This blend comes in 7 different vitolas. However, the one I’m smoking today is of course the Robusto. It’s part of the Robusto collection that I’ve been making my way through the last week. When looking up information on this Davidoff Millennium Blend Robusto again, there wasn’t much to be found. Only what Davidoff’s site says:…

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts Continuing on with the Davidoff Robusto collection that I received for my birthday. I decided to light up the Davidoff Puro Robusto Dominicano. Apparently this is Davidoff’s first Dominican Puro, before the Puro D’Oro came out back in 2008. This cigar was a special release in 2007 & 2008 and it’s hard to find it anywhere else with the special pigtail cap that came on it. The version I’m smoking didn’t have the pigtail cap, so I guess it’s not as special. Nonetheless, I’m…

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts This Davidoff 6000 Robusto is the first of a few Davidoffs that I received for my birthday in May. I was given a box of the Robusto collection made by Davidoff. Personally, I’ve never smoked a Davidoff because I always find them out of my price range. However, when given a gift, you have to smoke it right? So looking into this blend a little bit more it’s hard to find actual information from Davidoff as a company. They give just a little sneak peak into each cigar without really giving too much info…

I was gifted this bottle buy a very generous man, Art from Iroquois Wine & Spirits in Nashville. He’s a super nice guy and incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to wine & spirits. Art, I can’t thank you enough for letting me enjoy this bottle. Now that’s out of the way lets dive into this bottle. Most of you are probably already familiar with the Balvenie name…
  • EP Carrillo Edicion Inaugural 2009

    22 Jul 2014 | 1:30 am
    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts EP Carrillo is the creation of Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr. Ernesto is the man behind the Gloria Cubana line that became part of General Cigar in 2000. He stayed on with them until 2009, when he created his own brand with his son and daughter. The Edicion Inaugural 2009 was the very first cigar they produced. Considering this, I think the name is quite appropriate. The Edicion Inaugural was a limited edition cigar that came in a box of ten. About 150,000 cigars were produced. It features an experimental Ecuadorian Habano…
