    With harsh e-cig regulations in the pipeline in Washington state, Mt. Baker Vapor has opted to cull a large number of e-liquid flavors, in case each flavor will need to be individually certified for sale. With 190 flavors on the chopping block, it’s a firm reminder of the impact irrational legislation can have on vapers and the companies that supply us. The post Mt.

    Black Note’s range of naturally-extracted tobacco-flavored e-liquids aims to bring some class into the domain of tobacco juices, and Cadenza takes on the world-renowned aromatic flavor of basma tobacco. But is it worthwhile, or does it lack that special something to attract sweet-loving vapers? The post Cadenza by Black Note Review appeared first on .

Lee paid a visit to the George Stagg Distillery in search of employment. Elmer was met by Col. Albert B. Blanton, President of George Stagg Distillery at the time, who spoke the famous line to Elmer, “Son, we’re not hiring any hands today.” Luckily for Elmer, Orville Schupp, who was the Supervising Engineer at the time, insisted that Elmer come to work that week, and so began Elmer T.

    The King is Dead Broken Sword by Caldwell Cigar Company “‘The King is Dead,’ Broken Sword by Caldwell Cigars.” Photo courtesy of @cigarphotos The King is Dead is a rather interesting cigar in regards to the tobaccos used to blend it. Caldwell is known for using unique and rare tobaccos in their cigars and this cigar is no different. Negrito tobacco is not commonly used in premium handmade cigars due to the difficulty in blending it with other tobaccos, as Negrito tobacco has a very distinctive taste, but when blended well, the results can be surprising.

    The 858 Claro is one cigar that I am finding has little information out on it.  The 858 Claro is part of Arturo Fuente’s core line 858 series, along side a maduro, sungrown, and natural.  Fuente has been a household name for cigar enthusiasts for over 100 years now.  I would assume that the candela wrapper was at one time a top seller back when it was the cigar of choice for American consumers.  So much has changed in the industry since then and I’m betting this isn’t the same cigar your Gramps puffed on.  Today the 858 Claro will finish out our 3 part candela series, we hope you…

    In 2012 La Flor Dominicana released a new line, the Double Claro.  Double Claro is nothing more than the proper name for the wrapper we know as candela.  The LFD Double Claro is a big departure from the very dark and usually oily wrappers we see most often on LFD cigars.  Another differentiator is that most candela cigars are seasonal or limited release, the LFD Double Claro is a full production core line product.  The Double Claro comes in three vitolas and ranges in price from $6.50 – $8.00 depending on location. Vitolas: Three vitolas are currently available in the Double Claro…

Now that the warmer weather is melting away the snow, I have had the chance to smoke the last of three sticks I wanted to have before writing this review. Without risking frostbite of course. The H.

  • Can We Now Legally Import Cuban Cigars into the US?

    26 Mar 2015 | 12:05 am
    We have been getting a lot of questions lately from readers about the status of Cuban cigar imports. With the US finally normalizing relations with Cuba, restrictions are already beginning to loosen, although not too quickly. Here’s the skinny on bringing Cuban cigars into the country so that you know what you currently can and cannot do! According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection: If you are authorized to travel to Cuba, you may purchase alcohol and tobacco products for personal use (not to re-sell) totaling up to $100 in value. That is a combined total. You may personally bring the…
  • Fireball Cinnamon Whisky

    These days, it’s hard not to be familiar with Fireball Cinnamon Whisky, at least in passing. It was only available in Canada for a long time, and wasn’t very well-known anywhere else. Over the past few years its popularity has exploded around the world. It’s now quite well-known in the US and the UK, and of course remains a favorite for Canadians. According to the marketing story that goes with Fireball, originally developed as part of a line of Seagram flavored schnapps in the 1980s, it was created by a Canadian bartender trying to warm up in the wake of an Arctic blast. In 1989, the…

Illusione isn’t a brand that adds several new cigars to its line every year—and that’s a good thing. The pressure to release a new cigar every year can lead to compromises in quality, and personally I think it’s best when a company puts in as much time as it needs to in order to make something really excellent. At the time of its releae at 2014 IPCPR, the Illusione Fume d'Amour was the first new…

    When President Obama announced he was opening talks with the Cuban government, cigar smokers across America rejoiced. After five decades of an embargo, there was finally hope that Cuban cigars would soon become available to consumers in the US. Would we finally be able to buy CCs without looking over our shoulders? Unfortunately, at this time, the terms of the negotiations indicate that legal Cuban cigars may be a long way off for Americans. In order for full trade relations to happen, Cuba is demanding that: The US Naval base in Guantanamo Bay be returned to Cuba; The US stop broadcasting…

    Cigar This week I take on a super long named cigar, the Perdomo Double Aged SunGrown 12 Year in the Salomon shape. These are available in Connecticut, sungrown and maduro wrappers and I hope to try each one but probably in different vitolas since the salomon runs $12 MSRP. Again my tablet decided to freak out and scrub my notes so its gonna be short. You always can watch that video to get more information. Starting out the Perdomo Double Aged SunGrown 12 Year gives a sharp spicy earthiness right off the bat. Medium all around. Spice is blending nicely with the earthy taste and a subtle…

    As much as I like to think I am young and hip, when it comes to the marketing of cigars, I am a traditionalist at heart. I don’t like flashy packaging (does anyone remember the lighted CAO Vision boxes?) and detest a cigar which comes with its own gimmicky back-story (ORTSAC 1962 and the Cuban Missile Crisis). Last week, when a five-pack of Punch Signature Cigars arrived in the mail, I was torn. The new Punch Signature had a brand new look that was very different from the classic band I’ve known for years. I opened up the sales literature and expected a gimmick, instead it won me…

In case this is your first Week in Smoke, be advised that it covers many (though not necessarily all) of the cigars I’ve smoked in the past week (or the past month, or however long it has been since the last issue), along with a couple of quick thoughts that came to me at the time. These are not full cigar reviews, but quick blurbs based on a single smoking experience. As such, they may be influenced by the natural variations that occur from one cigar to another. Your mileage may vary. (If I know the cigar well enough…

Starting out this Romeo Anejo with a smoothness up front and a sharpness on the aftertaste. Getting a lot of dark coffee coming through with a cinnamon spice. About halfway through and still a low medium at best. There is a liquor taste coming in that reminds me of rum which is about the only flavor change to this point.

    Earlier this month, JR Cigar opened up its new Mooresville, N.C., the first entirely new store in the retailer’s makeover plans. Mooresville sits about 25 miles north of Charlotte outside Lake Norman. In some ways, this store is made to replace the location the company closed in Statesvile, but in many ways, it represents the new era for JR Cigar. Led by Rob Norris, the company has spent the better part of 18 months drastically revamping how it does business in stores, through its catalog and online. The new store features an updated look, but perhaps more importantly it’s about what…

Since then Ramón Allones has been one of the most popular ER releases for the program to date with at least one release every year. In 2009, Canada decided to get on the Ramón Allones train with their first ER release for the marca, which was a petit pirámides.

It’s the newest cigar from Fred Rewey’s Nomad and Tabacalera Fernandez S.A.  While Rewey was unwilling to talk details of the blend, he did tell halfwheel that it was not very similar to the Nomad Estelí LE Lot 1386 in terms of components. Still he found the blend gave him a similar experience, so he named Lot 8613. There will be five sizes for the Lot 8613: Robusto (5 x 50, $8.50), Coronita (5 1/2 x 46,…

    30 Mar 2015 | 8:29 am
    A new study looking at one-year quit-rates for smokers purchasing their first e-cigarette has found that around 41 percent quit smoking entirely and another 25 percent reduced their cigarette consumption by at least half. The finding contradicts claims that there is no evidence e-cigarettes help you quit smoking, and joins other research in suggesting that quit-rates with e-cigs dwarf those obtained with over-the-counter NRT.

I had previously smoked a couple of his cigars from the Premium line, and I was impressed. Obviously I wasn’t going to pass up the chance to meet the man behind the cigars. By the way Roberto is one of the nicest people that I’ve met in the industry, we stood and talked shop for about an hour. Talking about the good ole days, and what was currently going on in Cuba and his thoughts on…

    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings The I.W. Harper Release Party: I first heard about I.W. Harper Bourbon returning to the U.S. not too long ago.  On March 9, 2015 ABC News published an article proclaiming I.W. Harper’s return from their 20 year hiatus.  As a bourbon enthusiast I was excited to learn of a new bourbon that would hit the shelf in my local liquor store.  I have said many times that I love the bourbon industry for many reasons but something really unique about it is the story of every brand.  I.W. Harper is certainly not lacking in history. I was…

    23 Mar 2015 | 4:45 am
    Stogies On The Rocks | Cigar Reviews and Spirit Pairings Info: Perdomo is another highly recognizable name in the cigar industry. I would say most cigar smokers have smoked their fair share of the 10th Anniversary Champagne, at least when they started out. Of course, they offer a lot more lines than that, but it is probably one of the most popular cigars of the last decade. Last year, Perdomo released the Double Aged 12 Year Vintage line. First, it gets its name from a double aging process. The tobacco is aged in bales for 10 years, then moved to charred white oak barrels to age for 2…

  • 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?

    19 Jan 2015 | 7:07 pm
    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…

  • Watch: New Anti-Vaping Propaganda From TobaccoFreeCA

    Robert
    26 Mar 2015 | 11:12 am
    This video is the latest anti-vaping propaganda to come out from TobaccoFreeCA, which according to their website, is run by the California Department of Public Health. In this video they claim that vaping is a ploy by Big Tobacco to hook a new generation on nicotine. This claim is ridiculous considering the fact that most vaporizers, even almost all of the ones in this video, are created by new companies that are not affiliated with Big Tobacco in any way. In fact, Big Tobacco has actually been lobbying to put them out of business (it wouldn’t be surprising to me if the Big Tobacco…
  • Washington Governor Inslee Gets Destroyed By Vapers in Reddit “Ask Me Anything”

    Robert
    21 Mar 2015 | 9:00 am
    The proposed law that would include a 95% tax on vaping products and would ban any non-tobacco flavored e-juice would give Washington the distinction of having the strictest vaping laws in the country. So it was no surprise that when Governor Inslee did a Reddit AMA yesterday that he got absolutely destroyed by vaping supporters. A large majority of the questions involved people asking about the bill and debunking his dubious claims of “protecting the children.” Read some of them below: “Governor, Do you really think that driving adults back to smoking is the best way to keep children…
  • BMC Medicine: Vaping 96% Safer Than Smoking

    According to their website, BioMed Central is “an STM (Science, Technology and Medicine) publisher of 277 peer-reviewed open access journals.” So it’s very interesting to see that they recently published a commentary by Riccardo Polosa in which he claims that vaping is actually 96% safer than smoking. “Compared to combustible cigarettes, e-vapor products are at least 96% less harmful and may substantially reduce individual risk and population harm [22]. Future research will better define and further reduce residual risks from EC use to as low as possible by…

    The celebrity endorsed vape pen market has so far been dominated by rappers (no surprise there). So we were pleasantly surprised when we found out that the latest celebrity endorsed vape wouldn’t come from from some generic, auto-tuned rapper but instead from the singer of one of the greatest thrash metal bands of all time. The Chief Herbal Vaporizer is available from Lord Vaper Pens with several autographed versions still available. We haven’t received ours yet but it looks like it’s going to be one hell of a vape pen. It has The Chief logo emblazoned on both the vape…
  • 5 Types of Vaping Elitists and Why They Suck Shit

    The Sub-Ohm Sikk Cloudz Kid This vaping elitist is literally the biggest piece of shit out of all of them. This is the dumbass who thinks that the only thing that matters is blowing big clouds, and they’ll make their presence known by blowing obnoxiously large clouds in random public places such as bars, grocery stores, and movie theaters. They tend to get punched in the face a lot by random people who don’t want to inhale second-hand e-juice vapor when going grocery shopping. They also tend to blow their faces off and set things on fire because they don’t like to bother with things…
