2013 – A New Year for Enjoying Our Beloved Cigars, by Tommy Zman

I had boldly claimed on several occasions that the ancient Mayans enjoyed a little too much fire water and that their hokey calendar was basically stolen from the design on the Oreo cookie. End of the world, my ash - hey, they didn’t account for Leap Year, so according to those crazy savages the world should [...]

Cigars & the Fat Guy in the Red Suit, by Tommy Zman

‘Twas several days before Christmas and all through the blog, the Zman was smoking a big ole’ Yule Log. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, with hopes that there’d be some Montes in there. On Fuente, on Punch, on Ultimate and Hoya, get me some Camacho and Pepin, oh boya… Damn, I am [...]

Macanudo Maduro Vintage 1997

I picked up the Macanudo Maduro Vintage 1997 from Ed’s shop. Obviously the first thing that caught my eye was the shiny metal band. Besides being a cigar holder, it makes you look cool too. Seriously though, it is claimed that the band can be used to determine the storage condition of the cigar. If [...]

Antonio Benitez Edicion Especial

This is a first impression review, and it exists thanks to a long time visitor to the site. You may recognize him as “JJO.” I appreciate the cigar bomb! There isn’t a lot of information out there about this brand. They do have a website, and quick search of a few cigar blogs did yield [...]

Gotta Gettum Gars for the Holidays, by Tommy Zman

SO, are you gearing up for the holiday spend-fest? Gonna forgo paying the gas and electric for a few months just to get everybody the expensive crap that they want? Were you able to find that humungous ostentatious red bow for the top of the $75,000 luxury car for the drive way on Christmas morning? [...]

Guayacan by Noel Rojas

Guayacan cigars, by Noel Rojas, is a brand distributed by Emilio Cigars. The brand lacks a proper website, but they are on the devil site FaceBook. A quick search will lead you there I’m sure. Other then that, I have very little information. Thanks to Gary Griffith for sending me some samples to try out. [...]
