Political Science Redux by Frank Seltzer

Two years ago, emails were leaked that rocked the global warming crowd. At the time, I wrote in Cigar Magazine how science has become political. This past week another barrage of emails on global warming are out and they further show how politics influences the “science” call it Climategate 2.0. The similarities [...]

Padilla Cazadores

This cigar was sent to me from my pal Mike over at MikesStogies.com. I could swear I tried these a long time ago, but I can’t remember for sure. So this may very well be a first impression review – meaning the cigar I am reviewing is the first one I’ve smoked. As usual, I [...]

Tobacconists’ Association of America (TAA) 2011 by Tatuaje

This cigar is exclusive to the Tobacconists Association of America as you probably guessed. They are available for a limited time, and only 1500 boxes of 20 were made for a handful of stores.I believe there is a list of participating shops at their website. I figured I’d pick a couple up and see what [...]

Turkey Day – The Most Smokin’ of All Holidays, by Tommy Zman

There’s just no question whatsoever that Thanksgiving is America’s favorite holiday. While all other holidays are either days of remembrance or religious in nature, this particular day off from work celebrates your ability to stuff your gourd with more food and drink than the human body is actually capable of containing. I’m not sure the [...]

Happy Thanksgiving by Frank Seltzer

Well this is a short work week for most, however not for me as we mark the 17th annual Dallas Post Turkey Day Crawl, making us the oldest on-going cigar crawl in the country. (We also raise money for charity besides smoking cigars and having adult beverages at our dinner.) But enough about that. [...]

Tatuaje Black Label Petit Lancero

This cigar was originally a blend produced as Pete Johnson’s personal cigar. It eventually would made appearances here and there in various sizes and limited production. Now it has appeared once again, but in regular production. I picked a couple up at a Tatuaje event Ed had recently. Needless to say, I don’t regret the [...]

But Mine are Real! by Frank Seltzer (updated)

It has often been said that 95 percent of Americans who have smoked a Cuban cigar are generally smoking fakes. While many cigar smokers will agree with that, they usually add, yes but MINE are real. Sure skippy. Last week, General Cigar along with federal and state officials seized more than 3-thousand [...]

Alec Bradley American Classic Blend

Is it me or am I reviewing a lot of Connecticut wrapped cigars these days? Being an Alec Bradley fan, picked up a few of these when I spotted them. When I decide to have a smoke in the morning, I often reach for something with a Connecticut wrapper. This one looked like it may [...]
