    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 can’t peer into the future to see how (or if) Swisher International’s recent purchase of Drew Estate will change the Drew Estate portfolio of cigars. But one potential clue about future blends might be found in the Nirvana series, a five-vitola blend crafted by Drew Estate for Royal Gold Cigars (the premium cigar division of Swisher International). The blend was introduced earlier this year—months before rumors of an…

    Let’s face it; mild cigars get a bad wrap by bolder, fuller strength cigar smokers. I completely understand why this happens. Full strength cigar smokers tie bold flavors to cigars with intense strength to achieve that relaxing buzz they desire. For them, it’s a full bodied package. It makes sense to me to be honest.… The post Mild Cigars, Full Body Flavor Bombs appeared first on Cigar Advisor.

    Behind The Stick: While not all cigars have an extensive and broadcasted background – there are some that have just enough of a story to get your attention and keep you involved, especially when you see and hear the passion behind the smoke. Add to this, a cigar name that is synonymous of Christian Purgatory and has the old west/cowboy motif – well – you have my attention. If you ever get a chance to speak with the owner/blender himself – Kendall – brace yourself for a man who loves and knows tobacco. Beyond being very approachable, he seems to be one of those…

    George A. Rico’s American Puro has to be counted as one of the more unique cigars to be released in recent memory. Made in Miami, the blend has only tobacco grown in the United States, including fire-cured leaves from Kentucky. American Puro is part of S.T.K. Miami, a series of limited blends produced by Gran Habano at the company’s new Miami factory. It’s joined by Zulu Zulu, Opium, and Barracuda—an Ecuadorian Habano-wrapped line with bands of cyan and silver. Now, George A.

    Steve Ysidron has a concept right now that makes sense. Go into a factory, find tobacco that is more or less leftovers, outcasts and the forgotten. While it’s not the most uplifting descriptions, there’s some great tobacco to be had. Ysidron’s modus operandi so far with Epicurean Cigars is to go to the Plasencia factory, where there’s a lot of tobacco, and find bales that were leftovers from previous projects, forgotten about or just passed over because it was not enough leaf for a bigger project. It’s the epitome of something not talked about a lot in the cigar business—no waste.

    On Oct. 31, smoking in cigar bars was expected to stop in Nebraska. In August, the State Supreme Court ruled that an exception for cigar bars made to the 2008 Nebraska Clean Indoor Air Act was unconstitutional. By the end of this month, licenses for those bars were to expire, meaning smoking would be no more in cigar bars. Today, the cigar bars caught a break.  The Nebraska’s Attorney General office is filling an appeal on the matter and until that is resolved, the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission will continue to allow the cigar bars to renew licenses and allow smoking.

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…

Peeling wrapper: You can avoid a peeling wrapper by ensuring your cigars are stored at the proper humidity level and not cutting beyond the cap, but if you still get a peeling wrapper, don’t despair.

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…

  • E-Cigarette: A Safer Alternative?

    Nicholas King
    24 Oct 2014 | 6:05 am
    Manufacturers market electronic cigarettes as a safe way for getting a fix of nicotine or an alternative for tobacco smokers to break a disgusting habit. In Montreal, Canada, the number of shops selling liquid nicotine and electronic cigarettes is growing fast. However, under federal law, selling electronic cigarettes is illegal. Two years ago, the only shop selling electronic cigarettes in Montreal was Vaporous. Now about twenty-four stores are providing cigarette substitutes in the same region. The manager of one of these stores, Julien-Pierre Maltais, offers, with his employees, a tutorial…
  • Tanks, Cartomizers, And Atomizers

    21 Oct 2014 | 7:27 am
    An electronic cigarette includes various components. However, the most important is the atomizer. It is the component that contains the coil(s) that vaporize e-liquid for us to inhale. This is also the component that affects most the kind of vape you get when you take a drag. All the atomizers have the same purpose that is to wick e-juice to one or more coils that will vaporize it after receiving power from the battery. Despite this, atomizers come in many various forms and there is a little difference about the way these components work. When electronic cigarettes appeared first on the…
  • UK Regulation Of Electronic Cigarettes

    17 Oct 2014 | 8:39 am
    Many health experts and government agencies raised concerns about the fast growth of electronic cigarette market and the increased involvement of tobacco firms in the industry. The World Health Organization Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, which is the WHO treaty on tobacco, requires signatories to protect health policy with respect to tobacco control from the vested and commercial interests of the tobacco industry. The involvement of tobacco firms in reduction of tobacco harm is a cause of concern for many. Regulation plays a major role in order to limit such involvement and makes…
  • Western Australia’s Ban On Electronic Cigarettes

    The debate over the legal and health implications of electronic cigarette use keeps dividing specialists across the world. An undercover police team turned a suburb home upside and down in Perth, Western Australia, before to emerge with big garbage bags containing hardware. The home belonged to Vincent van Heeden who was a supplier of electronic cigarettes. The health department of West Australia accused him of breaching the Tobacco Products Control Act. Two years later, this raid moved West Australia to outlaw the sale of e-cigarettes and it was the first territory to take such move. This…

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Info: Emilio is all over the place, with several highly touted releases and distributing a number of the latest and greatest releases. Personally, I am a fan of most of what they have to offer. Needless to say, I was excited to see the Mia Dora Toro in the last shipment I received from good ol Siz (he treat me good!). It is one I heard about but mostly forgot due to having not really seen much about it since last year. This is another collaboration with AJ Fernandez. This particular cigar is dedicated to the love of Gary Griffith’s…
  • La Palina Maduro 50

    Jeremy Yow
    10 Oct 2014 | 5:06 am
    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Info: As I mentioned earlier, La Palina is a brand that existed at the turn of the 20th when it’s creator, Sam Paley, retired in 1925. Keeping with the family tradition, Bill Paley has brought it back and seems to be doing quite well. Most releases I see get rave reviews, including the Maduro line. The Maduro line was released in 2012. It was the first maduro release from the company. They offer five vitolas: the 56 (7×56), 60 (6×60), 50 (6×50), 40 (6×40), and 52 (5×52). They come in boxes of 20. Looks: The La…
  • H. Upmann the Banker Currency

    8 Oct 2014 | 4:59 am
    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Info: H. Upmann is a brand that has been around for a long time. It started as a Cuban company, developed by a German banker named Herman Upmann in 1844. That company went bankrupt in 1922. The name was acquired by Menendez y Garcia and continued in Cuba until the revolution. When the industry was nationalized, the brand name continued to be produced in Cuba. The owners, however, ended up in the Dominican Republic, where the brand is now under the Altadis USA flagship. This brings us to today, where Upmann has tried to recreate a…

    Jeremy Yow
    6 Oct 2014 | 1:30 am
    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Info: RoMa Craft Tobac is a company that I am familiar with mainly from their presence on social media. I have only had one or two of their cigars as I don’t have them available at any shops near me (well, I haven’t been to any shops lately. New house and all has me a bit tight on cash!). So I was pleased that good ole Siz sent me a couple of samples of their 2012 release Intemperance. The Intemperance line is based on the history of the Temperance movement back in the early 20th century. They liken it to the anti-tobacco movement…

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts The Tennessee Waltz is a new regular production release from the guys over at Crowned Heads, and it’s only available in the state of Tennessee. Mr. Huber told me specifically the first round of 5,000 has already sold out, and the next shipment will arrive in 3-4 weeks.  According to their site this cigar was created to say Thank You to all the support they’ve received from the great people in Tennessee. Seeing as how their home office is located in Nashville, it makes sense that they want to give something…

  • 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…

The simplicity of the parts and design are very impressive. Instead of trying to throw…
