    It’s a busy month at Federal Cigar. The New Hampshire-based retailer has already been announced as a launch store for the Flor de las Antillas Maduro, Tatuaje Verocu No.3 and E.P. Carrillo Short Run 2015, the exclusive home for the Quesada Selección España Churchill and now it will get another special España from Quesada, this month’s 100-count cabinet of the Petit Belicoso. Like it has done for the last two years, each month Quesada selects one account to get a single box of Quesada España cigars in a special vitola. This year the size is a 4 1/2 x 40 petit belicoso and this…

    4 Mar 2015 | 12:00 am
    It’s easy to root for a guy like Noel Rojas. Three years ago, when he moved to Nicaragua from Miami, he made cigars out of his house—with the garage serving as tobacco storage, the dining room reserved for sorting, and a bedroom repurposed as an aging room. Today, Rojas’ company, called Guayacan, is part of the […]

    If La Aurora was an actor, this creation would be playing against type.

So far, this effort to tap into the growing market for stronger cigars has met with much success since its debut at last year’s IPCPR […]

    Most of us think of a sucker punch as an unannounced or unexpected attack, usually a closed fist to the face. “Sucker Punch” is not a bad name for a cigar, especially for one loaded with Ligero and bearing the name of a brand with a longstanding reputation for full flavor. Sucker Punch debuted in […]

    It was 8am on November 23rd, 2013. I was one of the first people to enter my local Total Wine and I was on a strict mission: leave with a bottle of the coveted George T. Stagg Bourbon. I accomplished my mission successfully on that beautiful Las Vegas morning, all it took was a lot of phone calls, placing my name on countless waiting lists, coming into the office an hour late and a little under $100 but I was unrepentant. To most people, this sort of dedication seems absolutely nuts and quite obsessive; I, however, like to call this “passion,” or at least that’s what I tell…
  • A Taste of Flavor

    Maxwell
    5 Feb 2015 | 11:12 pm
    When I first began smoking cigars at the age of 18, I frequented a local cigar lounge where my passion for cigars developed. During my first year or so of smoking, I made it my goal to try every single cigar in the shop. As I did, I found cigars that I loved, some that I didn’t enjoy, and some I was even repulsed by. My curiosity was sparked as I began to ask the question: why? Why did I love certain cigars and not care for others, especially those that so many others enjoyed? At the time, I did not fully grasp that we each have our own unique senses of taste and preferences to certain…

    3 Feb 2015 | 12:38 pm
    In November of 2014 the Underground Cigar Shop partnered with Black Label Trading Company to release a shop exclusive cigar. The project was titled Catacomb, which is a fitting name for the Underground. The Underground Cigar Shop, owned by Don Wiggins, specializes in boutique cigars. One of the biggest selling lines at the Underground has been James Brown’s Black Label Trading Company so this collaboration between the two only made sense.  This cigar launched at an in store event although in true UG fashion a large number of boxes were sold pre-release before they even hit the shelves.

    “Crafted from hand-selected barrels, this bourbon is bottled directly from the barrel; uncut and unfiltered at more than 125 proof. It reflects the way whiskey was produced in the days before Prohibition, when Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr. was the owner of Buffalo Trace Distillery. Drawn from barrels aged in warehouses constructed over a century ago under Taylor’s watchful eye, the taste is smooth, yet powerful and uncompromising, just like its namesake.” -(www.buffalotracedistillery.com) Hailing from Buffalo Trace, one of the foremost distiller’s of our day and age,…

  • Whisky Review: Tullibardine Sovereign

    Martin
    24 Feb 2015 | 1:40 am
    In 2013, the Perthshire distillery of Tullibardine announced a re-launch of their single malt whisky range. The re-launch affected both what’s inside the bottles and what’s on them, with a total re-branding and the new tagline, “A drop of pure Highland gold.” The new lines became available in May in the United States. Why the change? According to international sales manager James Robertson, the distillery was starting to feel like they were slipping behind the times. The principle whisky line produced at the distillery before the re-branding was the Tullibardine Aged Oak, which…

    As a smokable art form, cigars can be paired with numerous foods and beverages. If you enjoy cooking, here are some ways you can use flavors to create amazing dishes while adding depth to your cigar and food pairings. Truffle salt. Yeah, it’s like $30 a bottle, but it’s going to transform your vegetables into savory powerhouses in an instant, and only a sprinkle works wonders. Try it and you’ll be hooked. Smoked salt. It’s a simple fact that everything tastes better cooked over fire. If you don’t have an open fire handy, a pinch of smoked salt can add the perfect…

If you’re going to have beer and cigars, the more flavorful your beer the better the pairing. Of course everyone loves a nice cheapie session beer for the game, but have some quality stuff on hand as well. Keep cocktails simple. If you’re offering the hard stuff,…
  • Are Cuban Cigars Legal Now?

    admin
    4 Jan 2015 | 6:27 am
    On December 17th of 2014, President Obama announced an intention to reestablish diplomatic and economic relations with Cuba. That’s great news for many families that have been torn apart, but for some of us it begs the question- are Cuban cigars legal now? The short answer: No. Or, at least not yet. President Obama needs the approval of Congress before the plan can go into effect. If everything goes according to plan, however, you will soon be able to see if Cuban smokes are worth the hype. Which brings us to the next question: are they? In the fifty-plus years since the embargo, many…

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Info: I would imagine most readers have at least heard of the Fuente Opus X, and most likely have had the pleasure of trying some. The Lost City is a little harder to come by. The normal production is 5,000 boxes released once a year. It also comes with a higher price tag, which further limits its availability for some smokers. If you’re not familiar with the story behind the Lost City, the short version is this: Andy Garcia made a movie by the same title over a decade ago. For one of the scenes in the movie, he wanted to film a…

I do see them in a lot of shops and believe every cigar smoker I’ve ever met has tried one of the Edge lines. I have had other Edge cigars before, but never the Sumatra. From what I can tell, the Sumatra is a little more rare. It sports a 5 year aged Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper and comes in toro and torpedo vitolas. It certainly has a nice price tag, being $6 or less most places I saw it. This particular one…

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts: When I started blind tasting whisky, I looked forward to being pleasantly surprised by whiskies that I normally wouldn’t give a chance.  Gentleman Jack is one of those whiskies!  I don’t know how many times I’ve glanced past a bottle without even a second look.  I even remember visiting Siz in Nashville and he was drinking some Gentleman Jack.  He asked if I had ever tried it and I just sort of scoffed at him.  I know, not my finest moment. Man was I wrong about this whisky! History: Gentleman Jack is a…

  • 3 benefits of sub-ohm vaping

    Paul Serra
    26 Feb 2015 | 2:30 pm
    Sub-Ohm vaping refers to vaping with a resistance level of less than 1.0 Ohms. Anything higher than that is considered to be regular resistance vaping. If you’ve spent any amount of time in the various online vape communities, you’ll notice that sub-ohming is a popular and controversial trend in vaping. What are the benefits? Cloud Chasing When vaping with a sub-ohm atomizer, you’ll be using a bigger wick and coil. Basically you’ll be using much more battery power to spread heat over a larger surface of the e-juice. This causes more vapor to be produced with each puff, which is what…
  • Who should use a mechanical mod?

    Paul Serra
    8 Jan 2015 | 9:29 pm
    What is a mechanical mod? A mechanical mod is an unregulated type of device. There is no circuitry in the mod to keep the voltage steady throughout the life of the battery. Since you are running directly off the battery you can't increase or decrease the voltage and the vape will slowly become weaker over the lifespan of the battery. However, there are no advanced electronics in mechanical mods which makes them extremely durable. They are ideal for those who want something that is dependable and won't break down. So when should you use them? If you're using rebuildable atomizers Mechanical…

  • The Candela Cigar: Unique Among The Best Cigars

    Barbara Ruggiero
    21 Feb 2015 | 7:32 am
    Candela cigars have green wrappers which makes them the oddity among today’s cigars. Candelas were once the preferred cigar among American cigar smokers. These cigars were once so popular in the U.S. that they were called the American Market Selection. For about twenty years, from 1958 to the mid-70s, Americans smoked billions of candelas. The candela’s unique color is a product of how it is cured and aged. While once very popular, candelas are now more of a connoisseur’s choice. There are several machine-made brands of candelas, including Antonio y Cleopatra Grenadiers, Dutch Masters,…

  • What Are Candela Wrappers?

    Candela wrappers are called Double Clara sometimes. These wrappers are not that common, and they are distinct because of these greenish tint. With that green tint, comes are fresh and leafy aroma. The reason that they are a bit green is because the leaves get picked a bit before they are totally matured, and then, they are dried very quickly. The difference is that more of the chlorophyll gets retained in the leaf when typical curing processes remove it. Typical descriptions of this wrapper include cedar, pepper, and grass. It is also said to be a big sweet. Of course, the actual taste…

The smoke produced by e-cigarettes (also known as electronic cigarettes, smokeless cigarettes and e-cigs) is actually a mist of vapor. Whereas real cigarettes work by combustion, e-cigarettes rely on the process of vaporization. As […] The post How do E-cigarettes work? appeared first on Ted Tobacco.

  • Jails Across the Country Selling E-Cigs to Inmates

    It seems like all the news about local and state governments regulating e-cigarettes, taxing them, and even going out of their way to create anti-vaping propaganda really is all about the money. ABC reports that jails in more than a dozen states are offering e-cigarettes for sale to inmates in their county jails.  Of course they justify it by saying that it helps to reduce the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal and therefore improves inmate behavior (which actually helps confirm pro-vaping arguments about them being an effective smoking cessation device), but in reality the only thing that…
