Pro Cigar and Birthday by Frank Seltzer

  The week-long Pro Cigar 2013 is over.  Wow what a time it was.  I am not saying anything about the amount of alcohol served during this period but at Corporacion Cigar Export (the home of Augusto Reyes) they had a very special set up for the morning tour….and many people took advantage. (I am [...]

Cigars… Anywhere, Anytime, It’s a Love Affair, People, by Tommy Zman

“Eating and sleeping are the only activities that should be allowed to interrupt a man’s enjoyment of his cigar.” – Mark Twain Okay, yeah, I admit it, I’m crazy about cigars. Sometimes I’ve gotta  step back and take a look at how much I love cigars and I think I freak myself out a whole [...]

Special Cigars and Growth by Frank Seltzer

Jet 1300-C Butane Lighter

Call this post filler material, but I figured a little blurb couldn’t hurt. Read on… Back in December of 2012, I was sent this lighter by a frequent visitor to the site. You may recognize him as JJO. I should mention, he included some cigars too. If you do a quick Google search, you can [...]

Pro Cigar Continues (New Cigars and New Digs) by Frank Seltzer

Yesterday’s post was actually written before we arrived in Santiago…I admit I was cheating but with the Internet here you never know.  On the flight from Miami on Sunday, I spoke with Ernesto Perez-Carrillo who confirmed he was making a new cigar for Crowned Heads.  This is the Nashville-based company co-founded by Jon Huber formerly [...]

Ezra Zion Inception (AKA Jamais Vu)

The cigar up for review is distributed by Emilio. If I am right, I think the Inception is now known as the Jamais Vu. You can find more information from their website. What caught my interest was the blend, as well as the double binder. I obtained a couple samples from Gary, of Emilio Cigars. [...]

I Thank the Heavens for My Beloved Nighttime Cigar, by Tommy Zman

Old Man Winter Don’t Like My Cigars, by Tommy Zman

You know, I admit that I do tend to write about the weather a lot, but it seems there really is a lot to talk about these days. I know that I’m always griping about it being too hot or too cold or too wet, yada, yada, yada. But hey, living in New Jersey, I [...]
