    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 bona fide, certified, and unqualified Aging Room fan, I had no doubt I’d enjoy the dark, rough-looking M20 (5.75 x 47)—even though I’m generally not inclined to Mexican wrappers. But knowing what the Aging Room crew can do with tobacco, I was optimistic. The cigar, to put it bluntly, blew me away. With an 8-year-old wrapper and Dominican filler and binder, this limited edition stick kicks off with pepper and spice, and…

    As most are aware Cohiba is one of if not the most counterfeited cigar out there. Cohiba has been fighting this with there unique holographic bands first introduce 2 years ago on the Cohiba piramides extra. Now the holographic measure will be put into the core line of cigars (Linea Clasica ) as well as the Siglo Series. The bands take a combination of the Cohiba behike and combines with the traditional yellow and black motif.

  • Cigar Spirits: Templeton Rye

    Here’s a late addition to my two-part StogieGuys.com A-Z Guide to Rye Whiskey: Templeton Rye. Templeton, like many ryes on the market, is distilled at the the Indiana distillery formerly known as LDI, now known as MGPI (it’s also their stock ticker). But as we’ve explored in our series on rye, just because the rye has the same source doesn’t mean it tastes the same. Templeton, bottled in Templeton, Iowa, at 80-proof, sells for around $40 a bottle. Templeton was one of the first to tap into the LDI rye, and for a while it was a bit of a mystery where the rye was made. A…
  • Cigar Review: Gran Habano Gran Reserva #5 2010 Gran Robusto

    About two years ago, Gran Habano—the Florida-based operation of the Rico family—added two new blends to its Gran Reserva series: Gran Reserva #3 2009 and Gran Reserva #5 2010. They joined the original Gran Reserva, which was the Gran Reserva #3 2008. Made at Gran Habano’s GR Tabaqueras Unidas factory in Danlí, Honduras, all the cigars in the Gran Reserva series are produced in limited quantities. In the case of the Gran Reserva #5 2010, production was limited to 1,200 boxes of each of the 5 sizes, for a total of 6,000 boxes of 20 cigars (120,000 individual cigars). But at the time of…

    28 Oct 2014 | 1:00 am
    These days almost anyone can have their own cigar line, if they have the cash and a name to put on the band. Such cigars can be excellent or lousy, mostly depending (I suspect) on the degree to which the brand owner knows and cares about insisting on a quality product. Selecting a good partner to make the cigar for you helps too, I’m sure. So I really didn’t know what to expect when I was offered samples of Señor Rio cigars, two cigar blends from the owners of the Señor Rio tequila line. In the introduction email I received, Señor Rio co-owner Jonathan Gach said his direct…

Add to this, a cigar name that is synonymous of Christian Purgatory and has the old west/cowboy motif – well – you have my attention.

    We've been asked quite a few times about the best ways to keep track of the cigars you smoke. Some aficionados simply use a paper pad, others prefer storing their tasting notes online, in a private or public blog. Another solution is using a cigar tasting sheet, but it's quite difficult to strike a balance between simplicity of use and enough detail. We decided to give it a try and came up with our own cigar tasting sheet, which uses a 100-points ratings system (we thought it was more common than the 5-stars system).

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.

    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…

    Apparently not satisfied with their first attempt at misleading the public about the extent of e-cigarette use among young people (nor with stoking the fires of the absurd e-liquid poisonings fears), the CDC has published a new study.

    The AHA comes out in support of the FDA’s proposal, and even advocates further actions such as including vaping in smoke-free air laws and increasing taxes, but manages to hold this view despite conducting a fairly reasonable analysis of the evidence beforehand.

  • Exploding E-Cigarettes – What To Know

    Matt Phillips
    31 Oct 2014 | 7:05 am
    On April 2014, the FDA banned the use and sale of any kind of electronic cigarettes to anyone under 18 years in the United States. In addition, the regulatory agency requires to the manufacturers of these devices to disclose the ingredients used to the them. However, that being said, according to a spokesperson, this rule doesn’t really cover components included chargers and batteries. These two components are the ones blamed for the explosion of e-cigarettes. So far, the agency is still thinking whether to include these components in its regulations. During the same month in North…
  • Choosing Electronic Cigarette Batteries

    It can be a hard work to pick a battery for your electronic cigarette. When you established already that you will purchase an e-liquid, you need to find the appropriate e-cigarette and this means, unfortunately, that you will have to find the right battery for your device and according to your needs. For example, V2 Cigs provides the long V2 battery at $22.95. A single charge of this battery allows more than 300 puffs approximately and this can impress buyers. Some users tried it from 8 a.m. in the morning until 6 p.m. after their work with few times of puffing per hour. They chain vaping…
  • 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

    Matt Phillips
    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…

  • Joya Red by Joya de Nicaragua

    29 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts Earlier in the year I was able to go down and tour the Joya de Nicaragua factory in Esteli. This was an incredible first time experience for me. I was allowed to actually sit down to bunch, and roll my own cigar. It’s incredibly difficult if you’ve never done it before. Hopefully one day everyone will get the opportunity to. It gives you an entirely new appreciation for every cigar that you smoke. When we were down, they gave us a test blend to smoke and give our evaluations of it. I’m not sure if…

    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

    Jeremy Yow
    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…
  • RoMa Craft Tobac Intemperance EC XVIII Brotherly Kindness

    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…

  • 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…

With the Atmos A-Pen they are taking a stab at the mid range market and have produced a vape pen that creates a high quality vapor at an affordable price, without all the bells and whistles. Build quality Surprisingly, for its price the Atmos A-Pen is a sturdily constructed vape pen. It has a battery, mouthpiece, a clip on top, and a cartridge tank to put e-juice in. The simplicity of the parts and design are very impressive. Instead of trying to throw…
