Check this out – Week 3 (2008)

Drew Estate

In keeping with the trend, we thought it would be a good idea to put together a list of recommended reading, listening, and watching. With that said, here is what Brian and I checked out this week.

Blogs

Stogie Guys:
George E. compiles a list of reviews which the Stogie Guys have given a perfect score.

Stogie Fresh:
While spending some time in the Dominican Republic, The Doc shot some video footage of how a cigar is born. It is by far one of the most informative, if not the most informative, videos on the subject that I have watched.

The Box Press:
Kevin posts a short article featuring his very own Chateau de Kevin Rothschild. While I doubt you’ll see these cigars hitting the shelves in your local shop anytime soon, I’m sure they are sitting on the top shelf of Kevin’s humidor. In all honesty, if I made my own cigar it would be the Masterpeice of my collection regardless of how good or bad it might be.

The Humidor of the Apokalypse:
St. Jimbob reviewed the Perdomo Reserve Maduro recently and has inspired me to give it a try. After smoking the Reserve Cameroon, Reserve Sungrown, and the Reserve Champaign I’ll have almost smoked the full set. At some point maybe I’ll fork over the cash for the Reserve Golf edition, but not being a golfer I’ve never had much of an interest in it.

Twitter:
This week our very own Brian found his way over to Twitter. With only a week into using the service I can start to see why it gets so addicting. Its been a convenient way to engage in some small talk between Jerry, Brian, Chris, and Jesse.
