The Nature of Cigar Smokers

For those of you who have been following this smoky blog for the last few years, you know that I have a habit of belly aching about the weather, as it is always interrupting my cigar smoking activities. It’s either, ‘too hot’ and disgustingly humid in the summer, or it’s ‘too cold’ in the winter, [...]

CAO–OSA Sol

This is the first blend from CAO since it’s move to General Cigars. A part of me is disappointed in CAO for “selling out.” Another part understands mentality behind taking the money and running. General Cigars has good brands and bad. So it is only fair to give CAO a chance. The name OSA stands [...]

Ed and I are back to where it all started, the Stogie Review. As always, our videos are posted here for archive purposes. Call it a one stop shop for Ed and Tom reviews. In an effort to get back to our regularly scheduled visits, we made our August spot in the nick of time… [...]

Thunder by Nimish

The Thunder by Nimish is a Rocky Patel product. If you are asking, “Who is Nimish?” Nimish Desai is Rocky’s cousin, and he oversees all of the central American manufacturing for Rocky. I’ve seen him at some events as well, so I assume travel is part of his job. This is his first blend. Thanks [...]

Perdomo Cuban Bullet 2.0–Maduro

I tried the Cuban seed wrapped version of this cigar awhile back. I remember thinking it was a decent cigar for the price range. When I ran across the Maduro wrapped Cuban Bullet, I thought it was worth trying. What have I got to lose besides a few dollars. So as always, I paired this [...]

An Intrusive Government, You say?…

This past week, five major US tobacco companies filed suit against our federal government in a most unprecedented and landmark fashion. Since the FDA has taken over governing cigarette tobacco, they have wreaked havoc with manufacturers, mandating that large, exceedingly graphic warnings be placed on every pack of smokes. And, to add insult to injury, [...]

Sunday Filler-Stinky Cigar Floor Ashtray

Thanks to Stogie411.com, who on August 4th, 2011 had the Stogie Review guys on as guests. During the show, Walt put a question out to the live audience. I never enter cigar site contests, but this was an exception. Considering I have been following Stogie Review since 2007, I knew I would be an instant [...]

Jose Seijas Signature Series

Thanks to Bonita Smoke Shop for gifting this to me. This cigar was off of my radar probably because of the price. The Jose Seijas is a brand of Altadis, and was one of the top ten cigars of 2006 by Cigar Aficionado. I probably would have never tried this cigar had it not been [...]

Drew Estate – Liga Privada T52

This is a first impressions review. Thanks to my pal Kenny for picking this up for me at The Tampa Humidor. For the record, we did a trade, so technically this wasn’t a freebee. Initially, when I thought of Drew Estate, I thought of Acid cigars. You know, the ones infused with herbs and spices [...]

Time Flies When You’re Smoking Cigars

This past winter, many of us across the country endured one the most heinous stretches of miserable weather ever encountered. Rain, snow, ice, and so much awful crap was brought down upon us that I just wanted to bitch-slap Mother Nature so hard that she’d think twice before messin’ with our lives again. It was [...]
