Cigar Lovers, May the Fourth Be With You, by Tommy Zman

July fourth doth cometh along with barbeques, fireworks, good drink and good friends. And if you are a reader of this blog, a gaggle of premium hand rolled cigars will be a part of the summer holiday festivities for sure. I don’t think when John Hancock and his fellow white-wigged forefathers signed the Declaration of [...]

Nat Sherman Timeless

This is a first impression review. As you probably know, I try to smoke at least two or three cigars before reviewing. Lack of availability made that impossible this time. This isn’t a big deal, but worth noting… Matt, from CigarPorn.com, was generous enough to send me some cigars, which included the Nat Sherman Timeless. [...]

We’re Making Some Progress by Frank Seltzer

  This past week has been a pretty good one.  The Associated Press’s tobacco writer (yup apparently they have one) wrote a rather lengthy article titled Cigar lovers to FDA: A cigar isn’t just a cigar.  That story then was picked up in the Washington Post. The story was decent, except for the idea that [...]

Liga Privada No. 9 by Drew Estate

First, a HUGE THANKS to Todd and Julia from Julialightsup.com. I was recently a victim of an unprovoked cigar bomb. Included was the cigar up for review today. I’ve had the T52 before, as well as the No. 9, but not in a long time. They are simply too hard to find around here, and [...]

The Impressionistic Cigar Lover is Gone, by Tommy Zman

One of the most prolific artists of the second half of the 20th century as passed away, an ardent cigar lover whose impressionistic style made him a commercial success and a notable figure to the sports world. Back in 1998 I launched my own cigar Magazine, called the Back Room and was looking for some [...]

Quesada Q D’Etat Molotov

Thanks to Matt for sending me a couple of these cigars to smoke and review. The Quesada Q D’Etat is a limited line, with three available sizes. They will be released at different times. More information can be found here. I reviewed the Howitzer not too long ago, and though it was good. Not great, [...]

Cigar Smoker Event–My Father Cigars

To anyone who already knows me… I rarely attend cigar events. Forced camaraderie and friendship isn’t my thing. But, when my pal Ed, of St. Pete Cigar, has a smoker event, I make a point to show some support. If you enjoy a laid back atmosphere, with no pressure to fit in, stop by for [...]

Fuente Delays Celebration by Frank Seltzer

2012 is the 100thanniversary of the founding of the Arturo Fuente cigar company.  At last summer’s IPCPR trade show, Carlito Fuente talked about the plans the family had to celebrate their centennial.  Alas, a month later, tragedy struck the company when fire destroyed two of the Fuente’s warehouses in the Dominican Republic.  The exact cost [...]

Room 101 Namakubi

I’m not sure where I got this cigar from. If you gave it to me, let me know, and I’ll give proper credit. For the record, this is a first impressions review. This means I’ve only had one, this one, to review. Normally I have at least two, but I prefer 3 to 5 cigars [...]
