Even Wild Animals Like a Good Cigar

Even Wild Animals Like a Good Cigar

The weather here in Southeast Pennsylvania has been a roller-coaster ride, of sorts. One day the sun is shining and the weather is perfect for sitting outside and enjoying a cigar. The next day could be filled with soaking rain. Sometimes we get sheer craziness – last week we had sun, then rain, then sleet, then hail, followed by more sun, all in the same day.

When Sunday rolled around and the forecast called for cloudy but dry skies, I …

Out for a Walk with an Oliva Serie G Maduro

Several years ago our friend Craig of CigarCraig.com rolled out a feature on his blog in which he called “Take a Cigar for a Walk“. The premise was to incorporate a cigar into Craig’s fitness routine. I know, that sounds counterproductive but stick with me…

Cigar Boxes and Identity Crises

Cigar Boxes and Identity Crises

An occasional cigar smoking friend recently asked me how many cigars come in a standard cigar box. My answer was there isn’t a standard. 20-count boxes are common, but I’ve seen enough boxes between holding between 21 to 25 sticks to make me wonder if 20-counts are really the most common. And then there’s been the growth in 10-count boxes in recent years. We really should call those “half boxes”, but the increased accuracy probably doesn’t help sell “boxes”. (I …
