Herfin’ Heads: L’Atelier Extension de la Racine ER13

Herfin’ Heads: L’Atelier Extension de la Racine ER13

In this very special episode of Herfin’ Heads Ben does not confront a high school bully, while Brian also does not learn a thing or two from a hard-nosed Driver’s Ed teacher. Instead Ben and Brian journey once again into the realm of cigar reviews to discuss the L’Atelier Extension de la Racine ER13. Along the way Brian struggles with pronunciations and invents the “Double Raptor” while Ben confuses Sancti Spiritus tobacco with Pelo de Oro and throws around words …

Cigars and Pollen: Some Survival Tips

Cigars and Pollen: Some Survival Tips

Or, A Few Reasons to Smoke through Allergy Season.

It’s been a long, cold winter. No matter what the calendar says, it feels like it isn’t quite over yet. In fact, as I write this, the temperature outside is just above freezing. But spring is starting to break winter’s icy grip. I’ve seen a few days this month get into the high sixties. The warmer days have been a welcome break, but they have brought with them a tiny menace …

It’s once time again for another issue of Brian’s The Week In Smoke.

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

Fratello Robusto

Fratello Robusto

At this point visiters to Stogie Review will undoubtedly recognize the Fratello, with its distinctive slanted red band and bold lettering. It’s been a staple of Jerry’s humidor and made it into his top 10 list for 2013, as well as quickly becoming a well established brand with cigar smokers on social media. And I thought it was time we gave it a full review.

Brand owner Omar De Frias grew up in the Dominican Republic, and says that …

With 2013 now safely behind us it’s time for a top ten cigar list for 2013. I know what you’re thinking, “Top ten cigars? Whatever can that be?” Here’s how it works: What follows is a list of cigars that I most enjoyed smoking in 2013. I’ve numbered them for your convenience, but get this- I’ve put them in reverse order so you don’t see my very favorite until the end, which makes it considerably more fun and suspenseful than …
