Coming Soon: IPCPR 2017

Let me ask you a personal question: Do you like free cigars? Odds are you do. My scientific, peer-eschewed research indicates 9.5 out of 10 people prefer their cigars to cost nothing. The other guy? He got so excited he scribbled all over the survey, broke his pencil and then fell out of his chair. I’m counting that as half a “yes”.

Casa Fernandez Aganorsa Leaf Maduro Ilustre

I can’t believe it’s been about six and a half years since I reviewed the original Casa Fernandez Aganorsa Leaf with the sun grown corojo wrapper.

These are not full cigar reviews, but quick blurbs based …

Now Accepting Applicants for a new Everyday Smoke

Back when Jerry and I started Stogie Review, way back in 2006, I was an adventurous cigar smoker. I would seek out new sticks to try, eager to share my thoughts on our little cigar blog. No matter how the cigar turned out – good, bad, or indifferent, smoking and reviewing new cigars was a fun pastime.

A few years back, things began to change. My wife and I were raising a young daughter and free time was getting harder …
