A Cigar – Perhaps the most Important Moment of the Day, by Tommy Zman

There’s a saying that goes, “The Best cigar in the world is the one you’re smoking right now.”  Well, it’s not only true, but kind of deep and profound – pretty existential, actually. (Yeah, you can go look that word up, I’m too busy going with the flow here with my smokey thoughts.) No matter [...]

Montecristo Epic

Thanks to Altadis for sending me samples of the Epic. They have a cool little packaging thing going on. Basically, when Altadis sends samples to idiots like me, they are in customized “Blogger Edition” boxes of three. Pretty cool! Anyway… It is claimed that this is a limited production run. Some smokers say that the [...]

Freedom and Courts by Frank Seltzer

When you get through with the trade show, there are so many cigars and so little time to smoke them all, it takes a while to go through them.  One, which will ship to stores this week, is Freedom by Rocky Patel.  Made at his Tabacusa factory in Esteli,  it uses an Oscuro wrapper over [...]

Quesada Oktoberfest 2012

Where have I been?! I took a week off of blogging. Not to worry, this site won’t suffer the same fate as my Twitter account. One thing worth mentioning is, winners for the cigar giveaway will be drawn soon, and I’ll post the winners. Otherwise, things will be business as usual. On to the review! [...]

Cigar Smoking… A Beautiful & Fleeting Encounter, by Tommy Zman

A few nights ago I was walking around the Upper East side of Manhattan, cigar in hand, enjoying a gorgeous evening (along with one heck of a lot of gorgeous ladies, not that I normally notice that kind of thing, uh-huh). It’s such a nice neighborhood, lots of folks hustling and bustling about, jogging, walking [...]

Sixto by Plasencia, Science and Congrats by Frank Seltzer

In the overwhelming release of new cigars at the trade show, one may have been overlooked. It is Don Sixto being marketed by General Cigar and made by the Plasencias in Honduras.  The Plasencias are known as growers of wonderful tobacco in Central America and makers of popular cigars such as Rocky Patel’s Edge, MATASA’s [...]

Cigar Smoker Courtesy, by Tommy Zman

I really do think for the most part that cigar smokers are very courteous people by nature, always making quite the effort to keep their distance from those who do not partake. In a world full of anti-smoking zealots and Nazi fascist haters of tobacco, it really does behoove one to be as considerate as [...]

La Flor Dominicana Ligero Oscuro

I’ve been smoking the La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero for a few years now. The Ligero usually slips under my radar, until recently. I started enjoying these when I don’t want to risk the ass kicking of the Double Ligero. As always, I paired this cigar with water. Let’s see how it went.   Wrapper: [...]

New Cigars and a Law to Watch by Frank Seltzer

Now that the trade show is over, I am having a little time to go through some of the other cigars I did not have a chance to really look at.  Charlie Torano has added to his Master line with the Master Habano Maduro.  This remains a collaboration of Charlie and master roller Felipe Sosa.  [...]

Torano Master Habano Maduro

I recall liking the original Torano Master, so I figured I had nothing to loose with this version. From what I can tell, the two have little in common, not that I really care. I tend to enjoy that maduro sweetness and spice. As you’ve come to expect… read on for my thoughts.   Wrapper: [...]
