If you’re reading this blog, then I have to make the logical assumption that you do indeed enjoy the premium-aged, hand [...]

A Creative Director, a Victory and a New Health Hazard by Frank Seltzer

Foundry is a new boutique brand by General Cigar. I’m not exactly sure what the deal is with the band ornament.

I LOVE Cigar People, by Tommy Zman

I just love cigar people. I love hanging out with cigar people – talking about cigars, discussing brands and blends, and best of all, I love smoking them (cigars, not the people.)  If you are reading this blog, then I would have to guess you feel the same way as well. When I was a [...]

I could find very little information on this smoke, so let’s get to it.   Wrapper: Connecticut Maduro Binder & Filler: Nicaragua Size: 6 x 50 Price: [...]

CAO Concert

Thanks to General Cigar, owner of the CAO brand, for sending me some samples of the cigar up for review today. Back in the day, pre-General Cigar buy out, CAO was known for it’s flashy packaging and presentation. It looks like General is returning to that with the CAO Concert. It is said that this [...]

Cigars & Dinner With the Masters, Oct. 3, 2012, by Tommy Zman

While there are a few definitive things that get the testosterone flowing within a man, we’ll skip the obvious and delve into premium hand rolled cigars and horsepower laden exotic sports cars.
