    Tatuaje has long had a close relationship with the Washington-based W. Curtis Draper cigar shop, which now includes two locations and the affiliated Civil Cigar Lounge. The shop was an early supporter of Tatuaje and its owner Pete Johnson, and the relationship has resulted in many collaborations. (At times the loyalty has even prevented other DC-area shops from getting certain Tatuaje products.) One result of the special bond between Draper and Tatuaje was the “Cabaiguan WCD 120,” a limited edition petit corona Cabaiguan blend released in 2007 to celebrate the shop’s 120th…

    Arturo Fuente is one of the most well known names in the cigar industy. The company and the Fuente family are rich with cigar history and have a true legacy that will go on for years. The Arturo Fuente Cigar Company started with humble beginnings in Tampa, Florida and now are one of the largest Companies in the world, now operating from Dominican Republic. Most of the Fuente core line cigars are not known for being nicotine power houses but being full of flavor, the Sungrown Rosado series is no different.

    The Wilmington City Council could vote on a new smoking ban this Thursday that would prohibit citizens from lighting up in city parks, playgrounds and bus shelters. Last week, the council’s Health, Aging and Disabilities Committee approved plans to expand the city’s existing smoking ban to include more areas and give police more areas where they can ticket violators with a citation that comes with a fine of up to $100. Wilmington currently has a fairly standard smoking ban, banning smoking in the majority of places of public employment, with exemptions for retail tobacco…

    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.” Costa Rica-based Dignity Cigars introduced its Dignidad del Hombre brand at the 2013 industry trade show. I don’t actually remember where I got this cigar (maybe it was a sample from that show) but I’ve had it for the better part of a year. The Torpedo (6 x 52) features a cool-looking band with a silhouette of one of the workers in the factory where it is made. (Careful though; the band was a real pain to remove without…

    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.” There’s no telling how long this Le Hoyo des Dieux (6 x 42) had been resting in one of my humidors before I fired it up earlier this week. I would wager at least a couple years. And that’s a good thing. I typically find—unlike your average Nicaraguan, Dominican, or Honduran—most Cubans are in need of post-purchase aging. In this case, the time I invested (albeit on accident) paid good dividends. The texture is bready and the…

    Behind The Stick: There are certain cigars that come on to the radar out of no where and just grab you by the balls and make you buy them. This was the case with me – I have been a GWAR fan since a grade school buddy and I would secretly watch Beavis And Butthead and then blast the rock videos whenever we could get away with it. I knew as soon as I found out these existed, I had to pick some up – if nothing but for the personal nostalgia behind the GWAR band. I saw the post come across Facebook – Pete Johnson of Tatuaje is working with GWAR to produce a limited edition,…

First of all, let’s talk a little bit about what the TAA is and why there are special cigars made just for them. The TAA (Tobacconist’s Association of America) is “a trade organization established in 1968 by visionary retail tobacconists,” (taken from thetaa.org). They are very similar to the IPCPR but…

    28 Aug 2014 | 5:28 am
    The late, great, comedian George Carlin once said that life was about acquiring “stuff”. This is especially true for cigar smokers. To us, the need for “stuff” seems endless. Aside from continually buying cigars, we also need humidors, ashtrays, lighters, hygrometers, humidifiers, and above all, cigar cutters. Unless we want to look like Clint Eastwood in The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, it’s best not to bite off the ends of our cigars. Instead, we more civilized folks prefer using cigar cutters; instruments designed to do one thing, and one thing only: to cut off the ends our…

First offenses will carry a $50 fine with each subsequent offense costing violators $100.

  • Pairing Cigars With Coffee

    admin
    28 Aug 2014 | 12:26 pm
    It’s no secret that cigars pair well with a nice scotch or bourbon, but the depth of flavor pairing goes far beyond liquor and beer. In fact, you can pair a cigar with one of everyone’s favorite non-alcoholic beverages- coffee. Here’s a little more information to get you started. Just like cigars, coffee can run from the low-end gas station degreaser to high-end works of agricultural art. A fine cup of coffee has the same tasting notes as cigars, wine, and scotch, that reward those who go looking for them. And just like those drinks, you can pair those tastes together with…

Here are a few good bets on how to maximize your last month of summer fun. Host a cigar cookout. Cigars pair well with many things: scotch, brandy, a fine steak, but perhaps nothing better than the primal enjoyment of simple meat cooked over a fire, surrounded by good company. Host a cigar cookout and invite each guest to bring their favorite cigar, then share them after a solid barbecue dinner. It’ll probably still bring a smile to your face in frigid…

If you care enough about cigars to store them in a humidor, you want to do it right. Here is an overview on caring for your humidor to keep it in great shape for years to come. Break it in. Depending on what type of humidor you buy, you may need to condition it before just tossing cigars in there. If your humidor requires conditioning, read the instructions (or ask us, if you don’t have any) and have patience! It may take two weeks to get…

    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.

To kick off the year they did two Limited Edition cigars, one a TAA special release called the “The Angel’s Anvil”. I wasn’t able to get one of these smokes because there isn’t a TAA shop in Nashville. We should look into fixing that somehow… They were also working on this release, the Las Calaveras by Crowned Heads. Then of course they had to have something new for the IPCPR convention. So that…

The version I’m smoking didn’t have the pigtail cap, so I guess it’s not as special. Nonetheless, I’m…

    The e-cigarette gateway myth A common myth spread by people who are in favor of regulating e-cigarettes is that people who have never smoked will start vaping and eventually want to move on the "real thing". According to this myth, the variety of e-juice flavors are designed to appeal to kids and get them hooked on vaping, which will cause them to want to start smoking. The reality couldn't be any further from the truth. The vast majority of vapers are former smokers who are using vaping as a tool to quit smoking. The flavors are one of main reasons that people stick with vaping and don't…

These vape pens (also known as e-cigarettes) are primarily used by people who are trying to quit smoking cigarettes.  How does…
