Carlos Torano Exodus 1959

Today’s review comes to you compliments of a grab bag Cigars Direct sent me. To quote the Torano website – This cigar commemorates the Exodus of expert Cuban cigar families and their impact on the cigar industry after the nationalization of all tobacco farms and cigar factories by the Cuban government in 1959. The Toraños [...]

Tough Day on Campus

Not too long ago my wife and I were waiting for the bus to take my daughter to first grade. She was scared shitless and when the bus came she cried hysterically as I picked her up and put her on the bus steps, telling the driver to go. It was as tough on us [...]

Arturo Fuente King B

I’m not a big Fuente guy, but I do enjoy one from time to time. I can’t say I’ve ever had a bad one, except perhaps an overpowering Opus X or two. But overall, I think they offer good stuff. Tonight I grabbed a glass of water and sat down with the Arturo Fuente King [...]

Of Maverick, Cigars and the Tube

No, this isn't a blog about Sarah Palin and cylindrical, metal packages for storing cigars. Rather, it involves watching cigars on television. Specifically, the classic Western "Maverick." As discussed in a 1, cigar smoking on television or in the movies always captures my attention.

Random Summer Thoughts

It's always hard as summer winds down, and you're left wondering how the last three months disappeared. The 2009 version, in the Northeast, will be remembered as one of the coolest, wettest summers on record, although the last couple of weeks have been making some headway on the temperature front.

Cain Habano

Lately it seems all the rage is with Olivas latest release they call “Cain.” I believe this is the brain child of Sam Leccia, the inventor of Nub cigars. It is touted as being a triple ligero cigar. A Quick lesson – Ligero comes from the top of the tobacco plant. This means it is [...]

Rated 90 by Cigar Snob, these cigars use Cuban seed tobaccos grown in the region Esteli Nicaragua. You can see the selection of Don Gonzalez cigars here if this sounds [...]

What I Did on My Summer Stay-cation

I didn't end up making the aforementioned 1 to see the cooperage operation for Brown-Forman, but I also didn't go to Niagara Falls as my wife had schemed. Where the family actually went (after much begging from my daughter Grace, who is fascinated by all things historical) was Mystic Seaport.
