Of Cigars & Christmas Tree Shopping

My gut is officially swollen to full-blown holiday standards as Thanksgiving proved again to be a day where blatant overeating is mandatory and the Detroit Lions losing their Turkey bout is inevitable. Today we endure Cyber-Monday, coming freshly off Black Friday, as the 2010 Christmas rush has landed. I’m sure I speak for Christians everywhere when [...]

Tatuaje “The Face”

As you’ve probably noticed, there has been a lack of new video cigar reviews around here lately. To fill that void, Mike and I planned on reviewing this cigar without Ed. Then suddenly, over a period of a couple days, Ed packed up his old shop and moved to his new place complete with a [...]

La Floridita Limited Edition

Up for review today is a boutique cigar blended by Nestor Plasencia for the Famous Smoke Shop. The folks at Famous were kind enough to send me a couple to try out and review. Famous’ website touts this as a hearty, flavorful premium cigar. With that in mind, I got my usual glass of water [...]

The Birth of a Cigar Shop, Part 4

Some of you may be growing tired of me gloating over Ed’s new shop. All I can say is too bad, this is a major milestone for my favorite tobacconist, and I am going to document it here on my site. For the rest of you… It’s been a few days since Part 3 was [...]

Turkey Day and Great Smokes Cometh

Okay. The question is: Why the hell is life whizzing by so fast and how the hell can it be Thanksgiving already? Perhaps most importantly, what smokes will I prepare for my day filled with a conglomerate of calories and flying pigskin? Thanksgiving is without question America’s favorite holiday as it is centered on eating until [...]

A. Turrent Triple Play

The cigar up for review today is called the Triple Play because the wrapper, binder, and filler are all maduro tobaccos. The only other cigar I can think of that is similar is the Camacho Triple Maduro, which I enjoyed. When I ran across the A. Turrent Triple Play, I had to pick some up. [...]

The Birth Of A Cigar Shop–Part 3

We continue Ed’s progress on preparing his move to a bigger cigar shop and lounge. Like I said in part two, progress has been slow. But now that some paperwork has been finalized, Ed is really starting to hustle and should be moved in soon. Ed and I will finally be able to resume our [...]

Xikar HC Series Criollo Grande

The fine folks at Xikar donated a few smokes for me to review. I reviewed this very same cigar before, but in a smaller size. They recently came out with the new Grande size for those who enjoy larger sized cigars. We all know that size sometimes does matter when it comes to the flavor [...]

Ode to the Cigar Bomber

There’s a knock at the door and you wonder who it could be. Why, it’s the USPS mail guy, and for some reason he’s hand delivering my mail on this very fine Saturday afternoon. That’s odd, he never comes to the door, unless… unless there’s a package. Hey, will ya look at that! My postal [...]
