    Back in April, I visited the Joya de Nicaragua factory in Estelí as part of Drew Estate’s Cigar Safari. At the outset of the tour, Juan Ignacio Martínez—the 31-year-old who was named executive president as his father, Dr. Alejandro Martínez Cuenca, steps away from day-to-day operations—gave us an overview of Joya’s fascinating history. Many know that Joya is the oldest cigar maker in Nicaragua. Fewer are aware of how Joya’s legacy is intertwined with the political unrest in Nicaragua in the 20th century. But that is a story for another time. Before walking the factory floor, we…

    Leccia Luchador This is Sam Leccia’s 3rd line, released in 2014 on May 5th, or as some of you may know it, Cinco de Mayo. There are quite a few Mexican orientated themes going on with this cigar. The band is filled with colors of the Mexican flag. The wrapper is from the San Andres region of Mexico. Also it was released on Cinco de Mayo. The Mexican theme are the names of vitolas that the Luchador is available in: El Hombre - 5×54 El Castigo - 6×60 El Guapo - 6×50 Loco Perfecto – 6 x 58.

    Origin : Cuba Format : Coloniales (Corona) Size : 5.2 x 44 (132 x 17 mm) Hand-Made Price : ~$9 eachMore info about purchasing Trinidad cigars... Continuing with a newcomer's perspective on cigars, I have selected the Trinidad Coloniales for this review because it's a mid-range Cuban, quite affordable and, at 45-60 minutes, easily digestible for the inexperienced palate. Prelight: Excellent construction; not too tight, punches out well and draws nicely. Lightly veined and puckered, sweet smell. The cap is very well constructed with a pig-tail twist. I used the No2 hole of my Swiss Army Knife…

  • Cigar Review: Neanderthal (Pre-Release)

    Patrick S
    22 Jul 2014 | 2:00 am
    At least for fans of boutique cigars, I expect this new release from RoMa Craft Tobac (makers of Cromagnon, Aquitaine, and Intemperance) to be one of the most anticipated cigars from the IPCPR Trade Show that’s currently taking place. Neanderthal is billed as the strongest RoMa Craft to date, which says a lot since Cromagnon and Aquitaine (particularly the former) are anything but mild. At least for its introduction, the cigar will come in one size: a 5-inch figuardo that has a ring gauge of 56 near the foot and narrows to 52 at the cap. The head of the cigar is completely flat across,…

    Last spring, Abe Flores of Pinar del Rio Cigars (PDR) issued an announcement that PDR would be managing the sales and distribution of the El Primer Mundo (EPM) brand. “This is a great opportunity for the EPM brand,” said Sean Williams, head of the Atlanta-based EPM. “Abe and I have… some good synergies with our overlap on sales reps and key accounts. This move will just make things a lot more efficient for our reps and our retailers.” The EPM lines now sold and distributed by PDR include Liga Miami, Epifania, and La Hermandad. The latter, which translates to “brotherhood,” has…

    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.” The annual IPCPR Trade Show opens in full today (the opening seminars and reception were yesterday), so it’s fitting I’m checking out a new release. C.L.E. Signature Series PLdM is a small-batch line (only around 400 25-count boxes are set to be released, spread between four sizes) made in Miami by three handpicked rollers who work on Christian Eiroa’s personal blends. Details of this blend aren’t disclosed, but…

    19 Jul 2014 | 1:00 am
    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’ve aged this San Andrés-wrapped cigar for a solid two years to see if time might mellow it out, and/or bring to life some new flavors. What I found surprised me: virtually no changes whatsoever. The AF1 Toro (6 x 50) from Gary Griffith’s Emilio Cigars smokes just as it did 24 months ago. Full-bodied with a leathery, spicy texture and notes of raisin, caramel, creamy nut, and espresso. I can’t say the lack of change is…

Herrera was originally recruited by Drew Estate to create a signature brand illustrating his Cuban heritage and “Cubanesque” blending style.

    What a week for the USA Football (Soccer) Team in the FIFA World Cup. We advanced out of the group of death and begin what is really another tournament as the knockout rounds begin next week. I am not a huge soccer fan, but found myself glued to several matches this week. It is good to see the interest and support that the US is giving to our team. Wimbledon is also winding down week one of the tournament and I have been watching several of those matches. Considering the disparity of rankings in the early rounds, there have been some great matches for both the women’s and men’s…

The two-story space was built to look like the Manhattan Bridge, which is prominently featured in the company’s logo. It gave off a noticeably different feel, as it chewed up the a good bit of the floor but also made the space feel much more packed and busy, which was only further aided by a big list of new products bearing the company’s mark as well as a pair of other companies who Drew Estate now distributes. Probably the most well-known and anticipated release slated for…

  • Pairing Cigars With Beer

    admin
    17 Jul 2014 | 1:56 pm
    One of the great aspects of cigars is the depth you can find with food and beverage pairings. Forget the lowly cigarette after a cheeseburger; cigars are works of art that can work with a nice whiskey to unravel flavors in both the drink and the smoke. Denver is rapidly becoming a mecca for beer lovers, so we wanted to offer some tips on pairing your cigar with beer. Opposites attract! If you’re new at pairing cigars, an easy trick is to look for opposite qualities that will ultimately complement one another. For instance, if you’re drinking a nice bitter IPA, look for a mellow,…
  • How You Can Fight The FDA Crackdown On Cigars

    admin
    2 Jul 2014 | 2:00 am
    If you don’t regularly sniff out cigar news, you may have missed this news item about the Food and Drug Administration’s plan to crack down on other forms of tobacco, in our case- cigars. As it says in the article, the plan might exempt ‘premium’ cigars over $10, which would still be a huge blow to the industry, and the average Joe who enjoys a perfectly fine $7 stick. While this proposal is galling, especially since cigars are almost universally enjoyed responsibly, in moderation, and the health risks are very low, you aren’t powerless to sit back and take it.
  • What Is Shade Grown Tobacco?

    admin
    20 Jun 2014 | 3:00 pm
    There are numerous types of tobacco used in cigars, with each seed variety and growing method affecting taste and texture. As you browse cigars, you may encounter shade grown tobacco and not know what that means, so here’s a quick overview of this growing process. When most people think of cigar tobacco they think of the tropical Central American regions that primarily produce it, but tobacco has been grown in North America since the American Indians grew it as early as the 1600′s. The fertile Connecticut river valley is one of those regions that has been producing fine tobacco…

  • How Long Will My Cigars Keep Out Of A Bag?

    27 May 2014 | 11:26 am
    One of the most common questions we get here at the shop is a variation of, “How long will these keep out of a bag?” So here’s the complete answer. First of all, why keep them out of a bag at all? You would be hard-pressed to find a drier climate to enjoy cigars than arid Colorado, so a sealed bag is your cigar’s best friend! But if you can’t keep them in a bag for whatever reason, how long will they survive? When your cigar is exposed to our dry air it will immediately begin to dry out, but the quality impact takes a bit of time. Having a cigar in your breast pocket for…

And only just under half of those (48%) saw the electronic cigarette at School, based on the ASH Scotland study. In the 15-18 age group, 48% of those who completed the survey said they have tried electronic cigarettes. But more than three quarters (78%) of 13 to 18-year olds who tried the electronic cigarette have attempted the regular cigarette. But what do these statistics tell us? Well to be honest not much, let’s face it when…

    One team of researchers evaluating the health hazards of e-cigarettes is starting a survey with a number of volunteer “vapers.” Another group will examine Facebook for posts on how individuals are altering the atomizers to increase the nicotine content with the vapor.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is spending $270 million on these studies and 45 other research projects to discover the hazards of the electronic cigarette before millions…

    A Dutch company has launched the world’s first electronic cigarette, but with a bit of a difference, named the e-joint it won’t take you long that it actually isn’t nicotine your smoking but cannabis. Shaped like a typical joint and having a natural looking marijuana leaf illuminating via a chrome-coated tip each time you have a suck in the e-joint, it is suppose to give you the same hit as a regular joint but without the harmful chemicals produced when burning tobacco. However all is not what it seems, the e-joint manufacturers, E-Njoint, are claiming that the e-joint is 100% legal as…

    50 researchers and health specialists have put a letter together pleading with the World Health Organization (WHO) to “resist the urge to control and suppress electronic cigarettes”. They state that the electronic cigarette is a “significant health innovation”. But the Faculty of Public Health in the UK says it’s too early to understand whether benefits outweigh possible hazards. The WHO said it was determining what recommendations to make to authorities. Over 50 leading scientists from 15 states have written to Margaret Chan Director General of the World Health…

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts EP Carrillo is the creation of Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr. Ernesto is the man behind the Gloria Cubana line that became part of General Cigar in 2000. He stayed on with them until 2009, when he created his own brand with his son and daughter. The Edicion Inaugural 2009 was the very first cigar they produced. Considering this, I think the name is quite appropriate. The Edicion Inaugural was a limited edition cigar that came in a box of ten. About 150,000 cigars were produced. It features an experimental Ecuadorian Habano…

A Brick House Maduro Mighty Mighty to be exact. I was pretty excited to smoke this cigar given how much I love the original Brick House. I’ve always loved maduro cigars as well, so I thought it was a good idea when they brought a maduro to this line.   Not a ton of backstory behind this cigar, you already know the story behind the brand name. The only difference is that this stogie has a…

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts The El Baton Double Toro might be one of my favorite cigars, I’m gonna come out and say it up front. I have been smoking this cigar since my early smoking days. This cigar is what lead me to smoking the Brick House. I found them right next to each other at my local shop UPtown’s. So one day I reached for the Brick House instead of the El Baton and I’ve been hooked ever since. Anyway, back to the El Baton. This cigar got it’s start quite awhile ago, back in 1914 to be exact.

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Initial Thoughts The Diamond Crown Maximus Toro is a cigar created to honor the 110th year of J.C. Newman cigars. Such a feat couldn’t be left to just normal cigar men.  The project had to be taken to the best. Stanford Newman reached out to the Fuente & Oliva families to help him embark on this cigar’s journey. He wanted the best rollers available in the Dominican to hand roll these cigars. He also wanted the best leaf from the best plantations to go into his cigar. The Fuentes brought the rollers and the Olivas…
