    Assuming time is one of your biggest constraints—as it is mine—you likely face a similar tradeoff: smoke more cigars more often, but forgo the ability to seriously appreciate every stick; or smoke almost every cigar under great smoking conditions, but smoke less. As a husband, father of an infant, and occupant of a demanding job that requires regular travel, it’s really tough to find the time to smoke a cigar under (what I consider to be) optimal circumstances. But I think such circumstances are necessary if I’m going to be studying, writing about, and reviewing many of the cigars I…

     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.” I’m increasingly a fan of of this affordable (around $5 each) offering from Casa Fernandez. (Interestingly, the bands have changed from Nicaragua to Miami, so presumably it is being rolled in Miami now, which makes the price even more impressive.) The Nicaraguan puro, made completely from highly regarded Aganorsa tobacco, features a well-balanced combination of coffee and light cedar. It’s medium-bodied and produces…

    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.” The latest in Viaje’s White Label Project—which releases cigars that, for one reason or another, wouldn’t otherwise get marketed—is a Nicaraguan puro petite lancero (6 x 40) that absolutely hits the spot. Opening with a strong pepper blast, the $8.32 cigar shifts in the second third to flavors of earth, leather, and sweetness. Then the pepper comes back into the mix in the final third as the sweetness drops away. Excellent…

    I’ll admit, rums that start with the letter “Z” tend to be my favorites. Zaya 12 and Zacapa 23 (not to mention Zacapa XO) are go-to rums for me, both with a smoothness and depth of flavor that can only be achieved through time in the barrel. So I didn’t hesitate to pick up Zafra Master Reserve, a Panamanian rum aged 21 years in bourbon barrels. Apparently the same company that originally brought Zacapa to the U.S. market is the same outfit behind Zafra, which sells for around $40. Zafra is a dark copper color, not surprising given its age. The nose could almost be…

    The recent acquisitions of Toraño Cigars and Leccia Tobacco by General Cigar have created a large amount of buzz in the cigar community. Theories are flying from all angles as to why and what and so on. Many are speculating that the FDA might have been a driving factor, while some feel it may have just been a smart financial business move. There are also plenty who fear the possibility of re-blending could “ruin” what are wildly popular and successful cigars.

It is said to be a tweaked Fuente Fuente OpusX blend with a different wrapper blended to be sweeter than a normal OpusX with a noticeable reduction in strength. Instead of the top priming, Angel’s Share was said to use leaves from the middle portion of the tobacco plant. People at Arturo Fuente told us the cigar was created to provide an OpusX experience for smokers who couldn’t handle the strength of the…

Some people add cinnamon, clove, or use brown sugar, but the basic recipe will work just fine.

    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…

  • Should I Quit Smoking?

    Nicholas King
    16 Sep 2014 | 5:04 am
    Quitting smoking is not easy, even though you probably will find the lives of more than one who believes that all you need is willpower and in the worst case claiming that smoking is the stupidest thing to do and you’re killing yourself, it’s still not easy. The idea that all it takes is willpower is somewhat reduced to a minimum as cigarette addiction is not just a craving, it’s an addiction! First you must understand that this addiction consists of several aspects, both physiological and psychological. Cigarette addiction is not an addiction to one substance as you might…

    4 Sep 2014 | 6:06 pm
    Researchers at the University College London team have officially stated that the critism over e-cigarette are alarmists the BBC have reported. Just last week the World Health Organization called for electronic cigarette use to be prohibited in public places and workplaces stating they were concerned with the amounts of some toxins and nicotine in the vapor. The Who’s report also warned about the danger of electronic cigarettes acting as a gateway to traditional cigarettes. We were so pleased that the University College London team researched this and said the quantities of nonsmokers…
  • 7 Tips To Find The Best E-Cigarette

    29 Aug 2014 | 10:22 pm
    1. Intended Duration Before settling for a particular brand of electronic cigarette, you need to think about why you are vaping in the first place. Are taking up the habit? Are doing it to stop smoking? Or are you an avid smoker switching from tobacco to e-cigs? A newbie will require a milder cigarette which is also simple to operate. A person planning on giving up the habit will find it sensible not to invest a lot on a particular brand. However, an individual who plans to make it a hobby or smokes frequently will need to go for a brand that comes with a durable battery and offers a heavy…
  • Why Does WHO Recommend A Ban on eCigs?

    Nicholas King
    27 Aug 2014 | 10:52 am
    More and more people are wondering why the WHO (World Health Organization) actually recommends banning e-cigarettes indoors due to passive smoking. Since with the expansion of e-smoking, many organizations that work hand-in-hand with regular cigarette manufacturers have been trying to stop this surge in electronic cigarette sales. Recently, the WHO joined them, calling for tough measures for e-smokers, including banning the sales of e-cigarette to minors and banning the use of e-cigs indoors. In a 13-page report issued last week, the WHO explains the reasons why ecigs are harmful to passive…

  • William Larue Weller – Buffalo Trace Antique Collection

    Siz
    23 Sep 2014 | 1:30 am
    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts The legend of William Larue Weller is well known across most bourbon ‘aficionados’. He was infamous for replacing the Rye flavor grain in his bourbon recipes with wheat. He liked what the wheat offered him in terms of flavor. So when you see any of the W.L. Weller recipes out there you’ll know that they’re “Wheaters”. I think this also laid the ground work for the Maker’s Mark brand and the main reason that they use a red winter wheat as their flavor grain instead of the…

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts Every year the time comes around when the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection, or BTAC as I’ll refer to it, is released. It’s always early fall these bottles start hitting the shelves of your local liquor store and everyone gets super excited to track down the bottles. I still plan on going BTAC & Pappy Hunting this year, but luckily I was able to receive sample bottles of the entire BTAC line for 2014. We’re kicking off the reviews with the George T. Stagg! For the longest time this had my most…
  • Ventura Cigar Co PSyKo SEVEN Robusto

    19 Sep 2014 | 4:54 am
    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Info: This review is of another Ventura Cigar Co release from August 2013. This one is the PSyKo SEVEN. I have seen quite a bit of advertising and mention of this cigar on various social media sites but didn’t really know much about it. From the band and box design, I figured it was going to be a rather powerful cigar, but on the contrary. The theme of this cigar is to “medicate your mind”, so it is actually designed to help one relax and tune out. The PSyKo SEVEN comes in four vitolas; robusto, toro, gordito, and gordo. There is…

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts I have no qualms talking about Four Roses Single Barrel being one of my favorite bourbons available on the market. I’ve made no secret that Four Roses Yellow Label is one of my top value bourbons. However, you’ve probably never heard me talk about Four Roses Small Batch. Honestly, until now I haven’t had much of it. I have always reached for the Single Barrel because it hits my palate in just the right spot. I feel no need to reach for the Small Batch on the shelf. However, seeing as this is Bourbon…
  • Russell’s Reserve 10 Year Bourbon

    Siz
    16 Sep 2014 | 1:30 am
    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts There are quite a few small batch bourbons out on the market today. They all typically come from larger recipes and have been drilled down into a smaller blend to make the expression a little more unique. Four Roses goes into great detail on how they get their exact small batch blend everytime, by using specific recipes and yeast strains. This Russell’s Reserve 10 Year Bourbon is similar in nature. However, what seperates this one from most is the fact that it actually has an age statement to it. Most small…

  • G Pen Snoop Dogg Herbal Vaporizer Review 2014

    Paul Serra
    21 Sep 2014 | 12:24 pm
    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…

  • Atmos RX review 2014

    17 Sep 2014 | 12:01 pm
    The Atmos RX is one of the most popular vape pens for dry herbs on the market today. Here's what you need to know about it: Vaping with dry herbs The first thing that you'll need to do before vaping dry herbs with the Atmos RX is to insert the included glass screen insert. This small glass insert creates space between the heating coil and your dry herb, ensuring that none of the herbs are burnt during the heating process. The heating coil heats up the glass screen, which then heats your dry herbs to the point of vaporization.  Now that you've inserted the glass screen, you're ready to put…

    10 Sep 2014 | 12:22 pm
    The recent hysterical reporting about pets and children being poisoned by e-cigarette juice refills, it's important to remember a few things about e-juice safety. Don't drink it Keep it away from children Keep it away from pets If you follow those basic guidelines, you'll have nothing to worry about. E-juice absolutely is dangerous to drink, it's liquid nicotine after all. But you know what else is poisonous? Every cleaning supply in your house, every liquid that you put in your car (oil, antifreeze, etc.), alcohol, even toothpaste. Seriously. According to this article, toothpaste is MORE…
