Illusione Nostros

The Nostros is a collaboration between Illusione and Drew Estates. You may know Drew Estates as the maker of the infused Acid cigars. This time around, they went with a more traditional blend with no additives. I am a fan of most of the Illusione lines, so I thought this would definitely be worth trying. [...]

Gurkha Ninja

Ed had a Gurkha event at his shop, and the rep threw a few samples my way, which I always appreciate. I forgot his name, so if your out there, thanks! The Ninja is a new line from Gurkha, and is priced lower then most of their other lines. It is aimed at those who [...]

A Most Perfect Winey Autumn Day

This weekend, the New York, New Jersey metropolitan area had the pleasure of experiencing the crème de la crème of weekends as the thermometer hit 70 degrees and we were treated to warm sun and an over abundance of blue sky. With October weather like this, you’d better find something to do that incorporates the [...]

Sunday Filler – Are you a cigar addict?

I debated how I would answer this question. But after some thought, the answer is simply “Yes!” To elaborate a little on my answer to my own question… I was addicted to cigarettes for years. I didn’t smoke them for taste or enjoyment. In fact, I despised every cigarette I lit up. With every drag [...]

Olor Fuerte

After a short hiatus from what turned out to be a sinus infection/cold, I finally got over it. I figured I’d get my feet wet with reviewing a cigar with more of a simple flavor profile. Also, stay tuned as I re-work a Xikar contest! The Olor Fuerte is a blended for the Famous Smoke [...]

A Weekend of Pain-Providing Jackasses

av·a·rice /?æv?r?s/ –noun: insatiable greed for riches; inordinate, miserly desire to gain and hoard wealth. Well, in my humble opinion, that pretty much describes the actions of the FOX network and Cablevision. It got real ugly this weekend as FOX, who is demanding significantly more money from the cable giant, pulled FOX channel 5 and channel 9 from [...]

The Birth of a Cigar Shop

Anyone who knows me has already heard about my pal Ed’s cigar shop. He is in a very small lot, and literally crams in tons of inventory. A quick tour of the current location can be found here. It was only a matter of time before he would have to expand. And that’s exactly what [...]

Site Update – Where Are The Reviews?!

Just a quick update. I’m sure you’ve noticed a lack of reviews around here lately. It appears that I’ve come down with something known as the common cold. This has me spraying decongestants up my nose, and spraying Chloraseptic in my mouth. While that makes life bearable, it leaves little for my palate. I tried [...]
