  • Cigar Review: Room 101 Big Payback Chavala

    20 Oct 2014 | 1:00 am
    The Room 101 Big Payback is a Nicaraguan puro with a rather low price point. At just $5 per cigar (for the robusto-sized Chavala, at least), this is something most would consider in the daily price range, and it certainly differs from the double-digit prices that some of the limited edition Room 101 cigars demand. While I have smoked a few cigars from Matt Booth before, I was a little hesitant going into this one. Matt describes these cigars as a way to give back to the fans who have supported him throughout the years, and I think that is an admirable effort. There is a small, cynical part of…

    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.

    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 very much enjoyed La Dueña (made and distributed by My Father, but blended by Tatuaje’s Pete Johnson) when it was first released, although I haven’t had many recently. The cigar features a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper around Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos .

From an immaculate Ecuadorian Colorado Claro wrapper rolled around the finely tapered body, to the mouth-watering sweet pre-light aroma and flavors that entice from beginning to end, this little stick is built to please.

    Viaje Cache’s name refers to two things: First, we’re told it has tobacco selected from a “cache” of select, well-aged leaves at the TABSA factory in Nicaragua, where it is made. Second, in a box of Viaje Cache cigars you get 20 traditional round parejos, but underneath you’ll find a hidden layer of five box-pressed cigars. Both the box-pressed and parejo versions measure 5 inches long with a ring gauge of 52. They feature a Mexican maduro wrapper around Nicaraguan Aganorsa binder and filler. For this review, I smoked four of the round parejo versions. If, like…

    There are times you will see multiple reviews of the same cigar here on The Cigar Nut, this is to give you different opinions about a certain cigar. Another reason is because we all have different palates and one of our writers might have preferences closer to yours than another. We will do our best to not read the other reviews prior to reviewing the same cigar just to keep things fair and unbiased.

    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 .

  • 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…

    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…

  • Metals In E-Cigarette Vapor: Do You Need to Worry?

    Nicholas King
    10 Oct 2014 | 6:42 am
    Electronic cigarettes have become very popular recently. Part of the reason for this is that they are seen as a safer alternative to regular cigarettes, though studies are still being conducted to figure out just how safe they are. From a logical perspective, however, one can deduce that they are not that bad. Most of the time, the problems that arise due to smoking are due to the presence of carbon based compounds within the cigarette smoke. These are the ones that are usually implicated in the causation of cancer as well as other conditions including increased blood pressure. By nature of…
  • Comparing E-Cigarettes With Tobacco Cigarettes

    8 Oct 2014 | 6:59 am
    E-cigarettes have grown in popularity rapidly since they arrived on the U.S. market way back in 2007. They are sometimes known as e-cigarettes, ecigs, electronic cigarettes, e-smokes and vapes, they all mimic cigarette smoking with the advantage of not smelling or producing smoke, just water vaper. Marketing campaigns have indicated that electronic cigarettes are much less dangerous for your health than smoking cigarettes, but the long term effects are still unknown as they are relatively new to the market and the user. Nevertheless, they are cheaper, they don’t make you smell and the…

  • 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…
  • RoMa Craft Tobac Intemperance EC XVIII Brotherly Kindness

    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…

    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…

  • 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…
