  • Perdomo Double Aged Maduro 12 Year

    The Stogie Review

    24 Apr 2015 | 9:00 pm
    Cigar Simple writeup this week as it has been crazy busy around these here parts. This week I will finish up the Perdomo 12 Year triple play with the Perdomo Double Aged maduro 12 year cigar. This was around $10 msrp and is the robusto (even though it seemed bigger to me for some reason). Starts out with a nice cocoa/chocolate taste and a little pepper. Base flavor is woody and the smoke is hearty, rather than being real creamy it has some weight to it. Cigar lost some of the pepper as the first half was left in the rearview mirror but kept the chocolate/cocoa with a little more of the base…

    Tincup American Whiskey is a product which, if you believe the marketing materials, is made in Colorado by Jess Graber, the same guy who created Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey. I don’t want to dwell on the details here too much (I’m more interested in trying the whiskey), but if you dig a little deeper, you will find the marketing is deceptive. Tincup definitely is not distilled in Colorado, and it is actually only bottled by Strananhan’s. Even though the label doesn’t say “bourbon” anywhere on it, the high corn content makes it one. The reason it’s not on the label is possibly…

    In 2009, Habanos S.A. launched a new limited edition series called the Gran Reserva that would be the banner under which some of its most sought after cigars would be released, and only when there is enough tobacco to produce an adequate release, which in the case of this line is 75,000 cigars. The Gran Reserva line uses an existing production size from the marca chosen for a given year, but uses tobacco strictly from a single year’s cosecha, or harvest. Released at the annual Festival del Habano held in Havana in February, they are generally considered the modern day halo product of the…

    The Spanish word “añoranza” loosely translates to nostalgia, or a yearning for days gone. So you’d expect a cigar line called Añoranzas to have classic flavors and a traditional look. The Miami Cigar & Co. website calls Añoranzas “a soft, box-pressed beauty” that provides “a look into the cigars of yesteryear with the profile and […]

Carrillo celebrated its fifth year, for example, and the Padrón’s celebrated a half century in the business. La Flor Dominicana had an anniversary, although not a significant one for the La Flor Dominicana brand. […]

The 4 Hands Brewery is located just south of Busch Stadium ( South 8th St ) yet has perfected the ‘hidden in plain sight’ location. For years I have gotten off at the exit that literally is a straight shot from the highway, driven past it to friends houses or ball games and even had done a U-turn in the parking lot, looking for the damn brewery itself! The brewery is located in the Lasalle Park neighborhood and sports one of the largest and most diverse portfolios in…

    In 2012 Oliva released the Serie V Melanio, named to honor Oliva family patriarch Melanio Oliva.  The Melanio was released under the Serie V line was but was a blend of its own.  Recently the Melanio was named as the number one cigar of 2014 by one of the large cigar publication so I decided to see for myself and report my findings.  First, I want to say that I don’t agree with cigars that came out in another year being listed on a list for top items of one year, but I wasn’t asked. Vitolas:The vitolas for the Melanio are all box pressed and consist of the following: a Churchill at 7 x…

  • Choosing a Humidification System for Your Humidor

    Inspector
    14 Apr 2015 | 6:44 am
    If you’ve bought a humidor, why would you need to add a secondary humidification system? It may sound counterintuitive, but if you’re in this situation, you know that humidors don’t always do their jobs perfectly. Sometimes they simply are not very efficient. As a rule, you want your humidity level to be somewhere around 68-72%. Some humidors will run a little lower than that, and may need a boost. Other times, they may run around the lower end of that range, and you might prefer a bit more humidity (72% instead of 68% for example). Or you might have a humidor with a seal that isn’t…

    For our final review for the Seleccion de Marcas, I’m reviewing the Atabey Ritos.  This is the largest cigar in the sampler back coming in at 6 1/8 x 55.  I don’t know the blend information and I could even find out what the wrapper is as, again, the Atabey and 2 Guys Smoke Shop website doesn’t have any information on the cigar. The cigar has stunning construction with a perfect wrapper and a perfectly applied cap.  The wrapper is super smooth and even has a velvety touch to it.  I clipped the cap and took a prelight draw which had a strong cedar flavor.

    A few years ago, I was sitting down at a friend’s house. He had a beautiful addition put in with an impressive ventilation system for cigars. At the time, Kensington Tobacconist (our old home away from home) was struggling and we were kicking around ideas to help ease the strain. A few interesting ideas came to light but the one that stood out the most came from my friend. When he lived in Connecticut he frequented a cigar shop that held weekly poker games. The buy-in for the game was a $10 cigar. The poker games cost the cigar shop virtually nothing but aided in boosting sales. Now, I…
  • Blind Tasting the Punch Signature Gigante

    Several years ago I was making the rounds at cigar shops in my area and I had an idea. Our video reviews were doing very well and perhaps we could generate some additional interest if I were to record local lounge patrons and gather their opinion on cigars. The catch was that I wanted to do it blind and see what they really thought of a cigar without brand bias. The first couple that I recorded were a real challenge. I think I made too much of the Blind Tasting, using too large a crowd of people and having them fill out a lengthy questionnaire. The videos ran long, separate conversations…

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…

The city has already banned smoking in city parks, nature areas and trails, according to a report from the Contra Costa Times. Mayor Steve Glazer has said that he hopes to see the ban extended to city sidewalks as well. It is expected that the first draft of the ordinance will be ready in “a couple of months” according to city manager…
  • Hawaii Increases Tobacco Purchase Age to 21

    Hawaii is poised to become the first state in the country that will require anyone wishing to purchase a tobacco or nicotine delivery product to be at least 21-years-old, and all it will take is the governor’s signature. The state senate passed SB1030 by a vote of 19-4 on Friday morning and it now heads to Gov. David Ige, who has said he isn’t sure if he will sign the bill, as his staff and state departments must first vet the bill for any legal issues. Should he put his signature on the bill, the change would go into effect on Jan. 1, 2016, and persons under 21 would become…

Only, it’s likely the case that the cigar was the last reason the product generated the attention it did. Virtually no one got to try the cigars themselves, instead, people looked at a big white humidor filled with 50 of the to-be-released anniversary cigars. The details you…

The Padron family is one of the premier families in the industry, having a reputation for producing consistently high-quality cigars. One of the benefits Padron has is having their own farms in addition to the factory, so they are able to oversee the whole process from “seed to smoke”. They grow the crops, age the tobacco, and then construct the cigars all under “one roof” so to speak. The 1926 series was introduced in 2002, the same year Jose Padron, the founder of…

But for those that are on a more limited budget, and would like to experience cigar smoking, yet at a fraction of the price, you might want to consider first smoking machine made cigars that are much more affordable and can deliver excellent quality if you are able to choose the right brand.

  • The Candela Cigar: Unique Among The Best Cigars

    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…

  • New Acting FDA Head Wants to Move “Full Steam Ahead” on Vaping Regulations

    Robert
    21 Apr 2015 | 10:23 am
    Just two weeks into his new position, Dr Stephen Ostroff said yesterday at the 2015 Annual Conference of the Food and Drug Law Institute that the FDA is moving “full speed ahead” on it’s bullshit regulations on vaping. “We are moving full speed ahead on the proposed deeming rule, which sets the stage for expanding the types of tobacco products that we regulate, including e-cigarettes”, he said. Even more evil than the fact that he wants to regulate vaping is the disingenuous way that he justifies it: You guessed it, the old “think of the children”…
  • Vaping Causes Historic Drop in Smoking Amongst Teenagers

    18 Apr 2015 | 10:35 am
    The CDC released a new report showing that less teenagers than ever are smoking cigarettes, while the the number of teenagers using e-cigarettes has tripled in the last year. The fact that vaping amongst kids has risen while cigarette use has declined is certainly a good sign. Obviously kids shouldn’t be using nicotine or any other kind of drug, but let’s face it: high school kids have been smoking, drinking and doing drugs since the dawn of time and they’ll continue to find a way to do it no matter what restrictions are in place. Since they’re going to find some kind…
  • Must Watch Video: Truth About Vaping – “Why They Hate Us”

    Some people have been confused about why the California Department of Health would take a stand against e-cigarettes, even though vaping is clearly healthier than smoking. Most of us knew that it was about the money, but the specific details on just HOW banning vaping would help California make money haven’t been made clear to the general public. Until now. Here’s a great new video that explains the cynical financial motivations behind California’s recent “Still Blowing Smoke” anti-vaping campaign. Yearly payments from Big Tobacco to 46 states directly dependent…
  • Why Cloud Chasers are the Biggest Pieces Of Shit in the Known Universe

    This is how stupid you look when you cloud chase. They’re obnoxious and give people a bad impression of vaping If you’re an OVE, you might not be aware that most people aren’t thinking about vaping 24/7. Some people might live in the middle of fucking nowhere and might not have even seen a vape before. So when you decide to “stealth vape” and blow a “sikk cloud” in a fucking grocery store and other people are forced to inhale your second-hand vapor (yes, retards, this is a thing), it’s going to make people angry. These people will then go on to support vaping bans and…
  • Can Everyone Shutup About the Whole Mod Clone Debate?

    Robert
    3 Apr 2015 | 7:48 pm
    If you follow the various online vaping forums, you’ll notice that every once in a while an Online Vaping Elitist (OVE) will create a thread where he berates vapers who choose to purchase cheap Chinese mod clones instead of the more expensive authentics from America. But are these cheapskates really as evil as the OVE’s claim? The short answer is: no. For some mysterious reason, once someone decides to become an OVE their ego balloons to massive proportions and they start to think that they are qualified to give advice on virtually every issue related to vaping. The problem is that most…
