Oliveros Classic Collection Maduro

I ran across this cigar from a couple sources. I won one in a raffle, and I believe I was sent one in a grab bag awhile back. There really isn’t a big story behind this cigar that I’m aware of. As we all know, I paired up with PUR filtered water and got to [...]

Mr. Z Visits Washington

From last Thursday to Sunday (yesterday) the Z family drove to the land of politico stooges – Washington DC. I’ve been to DC, but never did the full tour until now, and I can tell you, it is an absolutely spectacular place to visit. To say that it’s just a bunch of statues, museums, and [...]

One Bright Moment

I had one of "those" days on the golf course yesterday. I was in a tournament, technically not in contention to win anything in the second round, although with a great round I might have put myself up with the overnight leaders in the net stroke category.

El Baton

The El Baton is made in Nicaragua by the J.C. Newman Cigar Co. Apparently they are made in a small factory dedicated to this particular line. They claim it to be medium to full bodied with “Notes of spice.” Tonight I am pairing up with water and a few sips of Glenfiddich 18 year scotch. [...]

Takin’ Care of Business

I came across a couple of Montecristo Petit Edmundos a few weeks ago in one of my spare rooms at home. I am not sure where they came from but they were in a Ziplock bag. The three cigars were dry and needed to be rehumidified. So I stuck them in my Dunhill humidor at about 68 percent humidity and let them soften a little.

Panic Mode

My worst fears have been realized. I just received a press package from Knob Creek and tore off the brown paper wrapper with some anticipation, only to be greeted with a foreboding message on the lid of the box: "Thanks for nothing." "My god!" I thought, "What have I done to rankle the folks at the distillery?" I lifted the box top to expose a terrifying sight that rivals even reading the current performance of my IRA: an empty bottle of Knob Creek Kentucky Straight Bourbon.

Reyes Family Premier-A year Later

I’m sure many of you saw Ed and I review this cigar back in July of 2008. Unfortunately, we had a bad experience and the review reflected that (unlike our review of the Cienfuegos, which went great). When I saw the Reyes Family Premier recently at a local shop, I had to buy a couple [...]

Father’s Day Smokes

I had a great Father's Day. It started off with brunch at a local restaurant with my wife and son. They treated me to hanger steak and eggs, the steak medium rare, the eggs softly poached, with hollandaise sauce. It was brunch at a seafood restaurant, and my wife was more in the mood for lunch than breakfast—she began with a half-dozen bluepoint oysters on the half-shell.

Dad’s Weekend Revisited

You guys all know that I’m the total nostalgic sort, and nothing but nothing says nostalgic like Father’s Day. But I happened to have had a hell of a few days of celebrating. On Thursday, Tommy 3 graduated eighth grade. (Dad is Tommy 1 and I’m the Jr.) On Friday, my daughter Nicole graduated high [...]

Flavored—But Surprisingly Good

I wanted to hate this product. When Jim Beam announced its Red Stag, Bourbon infused with black cherry flavoring, the purist in me was horrified. What lunatic would want to take something so noble as Bourbon and sweeten it up with fruit? After all Bourbon is the purest of all spirits, strictly produced as a straight whiskey, no flavoring, barrels only used once, no coloring.
