    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts To me it’s always interesting to hear the backstory behind brands. This Thomas H. Handy Sazerac is no exception. Mr. Handy is apparently the first bartender that ever used Rye whiskey in his Sazerac cocktails. So what better way to honor the man, than to make a whiskey named after him. I hope I do something great enough to have a whiskey named after me someday. I think that should be the American dream. This rye is uncut and unfiltered just like the George T. Stagg & William Larue Weller. Just last year it…

    Following up on our popular A-Z Guide to Bourbon (read part one and part two) we thought a similar guide was due for rye. Like bourbon, American rye has undergone a renaissance lately. A combination of the rise of cocktail culture and the renewed interest in fine whiskies means there is more, better rye available now than there has been in a long time. To that end, here’s the Cliffs Notes version of our coverage of rye. In addition to a link to the full write-up, I’ve included my take on the defining characteristics of each whiskey.

    Just like bourbon is my go-to cigar pairing in the colder months, rum is typically my libation of preference in the summer. Summer may be over, but this weekend had outstanding weather here in Chicago, and I used the sunshine as an opportunity to enjoy one of my favorite rums. Ron Zacapa Centenario 23 is made in Guatemala, where it is blended from rum made from first-crush sugar cane juice—as opposed to molasses—and aged in oak barrels previously used for bourbon, sherries, and Pedro Ximénez wines. It employs the solera method, a system used regularly for fortified wine such as port and…

    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.” Original 2003 Cien Años cigars aren’t easy to find these days. Fortunately, I have a few remaining from a box I purchased before they were re-released nearly a decade later. Made by La Aurora, the oldest cigar maker in the Dominican Republic celebrated 100 years in the cigar business with this Dominican puro, which sports an oily Corojo wrapper. The Robusto is a pleasant combination of bread, dry cedar, cream, and pepper.

I found few noticeable changes, though that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The smoke still has a dense, sweet texture with flavors ranging from…

    Today I smoked the Añoranza by Nestor Miranda’s Miami Cigar & Co. The Añoranza is a chocolate brown Nicaraguan Habano oscuro wrapper over a Nicaraguan double binder and Nicaraguan fillers. Miami Cigar released the Añoranza in 2011 and it complements their other lines very well, Miami Cigar is also the United States distributor for La Aurora. The Añoranza is available in four vitolas; the 5×50 Robusto, 5×52 Toro, 6.5×54 Belicoso, and the 6×60 Gran Toro. The cigar features a gorgeous white and green band with gold accents that really sets this cigar off. Miami…
  • Editorial: Getting Your Settings Right

    Since so much of cigar smoking is about slowing down and relaxing I believe that the setting in which we enjoy our cigars has a huge impact on what we get out of them. Cigarette smoker don’t tend to have a favorite place or time of day to enjoy a cigarette, yet so many cigar smokers can sit down and take several minutes to describe what they feel is the perfect setting for a cigar. As I sit here in an empty cigar lounge, just my computer, my cigar, a Mexican Coke and some classic Cuban music playing I can’t help but think about some of my favorite settings.

A blend containing two different wrapper leaves and tobaccos from five different origins. The double wrapper combination of Habano from Ecuador and San Andres Maduro from Mexico add a striking level of flavor and visual appeal. Our hand-selected Criollo binder gives this blend just the right amount of spice and sweetness. Four different filler tobaccos from three different regions (Honduras, Dominican Republic, USA) deliver a highly impactful and stimulating flavor experience,…

Yes this is the same man who has produced the ITC 10th, Diesel, Man O’ War Ruination and SOl Cubano Cuban Cabinet – although now he is back again with the La Herencia Cubana CORE. This cigar has been a self toted ‘premium, hand-made, boutique blend that captures the essence of true Nicaraguan tobacco”.

Here are some common issues and fixes that may revive a great cigar that you thought was lost. 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. For a little peel you can try just licking your thumb and ‘glueing’ the edge back down. If you haven’t lit the cigar yet and want a more…

    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…

  • New Study Reveals Positives To E-Cigarettes

    After reviewing 81 studies on electronic cigarette use and safety, the researchers conclude that the use of this device could reduce emission of nicotine deaths and diseases consequent to the use of cigarettes. The study investigator Thomas Eissenberg, director of the Center for the Study of the Products of the United States Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, said: “Current evidence suggests that there is potential for smokers to reduce risk health if electronic cigarettes are used instead of cigarettes and snuff and are considered as a step to stop all consumption of…

    Not satisfied with the results of the report of the World Health Organization (WHO) both the National Association of Electronic Cigarette (ANCE) and the Spanish National Association Vapeadores (ANEV) suggest that these results are directly influenced by medical and pharmaceutical organizations to address their own interests. ANEV president, Pedro Chair criticizes pharmaceutical insistence on not accepting the electronic cigarette as a method to quit smoking, says that in the time that drug control production thereof, be they who defend swashbuckling revolutionary invention as an effective…
  • 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…

    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…

    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…

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts Sadly, the journey of sampling 2014 Buffalo Trace Antique Collection has come to end. Finishing off the review series with my favorite the 2014 Eagle Rare 17. I haven’t even reviewed the original Eagle Rare on the site yet. I have only sampled it a few times previous to enjoying this year’s expression. Needless to say I didn’t quite know what to expect with it. I was happy to see that bourbon came out at 90 proof. I think I’ve come to realize that I enjoy bourbons more in the 90-110 proof…
  • Sazerac Rye 18 Year – Buffalo Trace Antique Collection

    25 Sep 2014 | 1:30 am
    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts Similar to the naming behind the Thomas H. Handy Sazerac, this Sazerac Rye 18 Year, the name comes from New Orleans as well. The infamous Sazerac cocktail used a delicious rye whiskey. Some of you might never see this bottle on the shelf, but if you’re lucky you can track down what they call Baby Saz. To me that whiskey was pretty tasty. I can only hope that it gets better with age. Unfortunately, there’s not some crazy backstory behind this whiskey. It seems like the history behind the Sazerac cocktail…

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts To me it’s always interesting to hear the backstory behind brands. This Thomas H. Handy Sazerac is no exception. Mr. Handy is apparently the first bartender that ever used Rye whiskey in his Sazerac cocktails. So what better way to honor the man, than to make a whiskey named after him. I hope I do something great enough to have a whiskey named after me someday. I think that should be the American dream. This rye is uncut and unfiltered just like the George T. Stagg & William Larue Weller. Just last year it…
  • William Larue Weller – Buffalo Trace Antique Collection

    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…

  • 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…
