This Thanksgiving I’m Thankful for Cigars

This Thanksgiving I’m Thankful for Cigars

Over the years, I’ve always found the holidays to be a strange time for Cigar Blogs. I would come across blog posts outlining After-Turkey Cigars at Thanksgiving, Gift Ideas for the Cigar Lover at Christmas, and the ever popular Green Cigars for St Patty’s Day.

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 113

Hopefully you’ll have a chance to eat too much, put your feet up, and light up a few good cigars this week while being generally thankful for the good things in life. That’s my goal. Before donning my combat gear and rushing out at o’ dark-thirty to buy a 937” razzamataz definition television with the latest 3D virtual cup holders.

Room 101 Hit & Run Almost Robusto

Room 101 Hit & Run Almost Robusto

The recent announcement of Room 101’s entrance into the spirits world with surprising choice of gin reminded me that I’m overdue to reread George Orwell’s 1984. But more relevant to the task at hand, it also reminded me I had picked up some Room 101 Hit & Run sticks for a review, and it was high time to roll up my sleeves and get to work on that. I decided to save time on the sleeve-rolling by sticking to …
