Screwpop Cigar Ashtray

Screwpop Cigar Ashtray

When it comes to cigar smoking, enthusiasts have a wide range of gadgets and accessories to choose from. None of them are really necessary to enjoy a cigar, however, they add a bit of convenience or cool factor to our hobby. We’ve got specialty cutters, fancy lighters, leather travel humidors, and aluminum cigar holders, among other things.

Among those accessories, there is one that is often overlooked – the Cigar Ashtray. These handy little objects are made in all shapes, …

Celebrating With Cigars: Bringing Home a Baby Girl

Celebrating With Cigars: Bringing Home a Baby Girl

Last week I decided to take advantage of a beautiful morning here in Southeast Pennsylvania. I sat down on my deck, lit up a Long Live the King by Caldwell Cigar Company, and listened to the birds chirp as I sipped my coffee.

I wrote a quick review on the cigar and mentioned that my wife and I were expecting a baby. Since that posting my wife has given birth to a beautiful baby girl. You’re probably wondering …

Long Live the King by Caldwell Cigar Company

Long Live the King by Caldwell Cigar Company

Back in August, the crew from Sir Stogies piled into a van and began an epic journey across Southeast Pennsylvania visiting cigar shops. There were lots of laughs, plenty of drinks, and an abundance of cigars. I may be embellishing it a tad but it was a wonderful time.

One of the shops we visited was JM Cigars in Exton. It is a shop that touts an impressive humidor with a solid selection. As I completed lap after …

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

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…

Craig started a walking routine and used the cigar as a tool for increasing time and distance. Once around the neighborhood and still plenty of cigar left – better do another lap. Two …

Hererra Esteli TAA Exclusive

Hererra Esteli TAA Exclusive

Last week I was hanging out at Sir Stogies when one of the regulars walked in. We exchange pleasantries and he made his way from the private lounge into the retail space to talk to the shop owner.

I’m not one to eavesdrop but when I heard “Have you tried the new Hererra Esteli TAA Exclusive?” it piqued my interest. The shop regular was massively impressed by the cigar that he had smoked while away on vacation. So impressed, in …

El Compartir Belicoso

El Compartir Belicoso

A couple of weeks ago one of the guys from Sir Stogies sent me a text message. He was letting me know that Edolara from Cigar Noise was in town and planned on stopping by the shop for an impromptu smoke, if I wanted to join them. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get away and missed out on a very good time.

I stopped by the shop a couple of days later and got caught up on what I had …

A Tale of Two Cigar Reps

A Tale of Two Cigar Reps

Ladies and Gentlemen, I’d like to to tell you a little story about two cigar reps. Actually, it isn’t much in the way of a story – I just need a lead-in to a question and I’m very interested in your input on the matter. Anyway, back to the point…

I’d like you to take a moment and imagine yourself standing in your local cigar shop. Yourself and a couple of the shop regulars are standing around the cash register …

A Question On BYOB Cigar Lounges

A Question On BYOB Cigar Lounges

Imagine yourself sitting around a table at your local cigar shop. There you are, puffing away on your favorite cigar, talking with the guys, when suddenly the door opens. In walks one of the regulars with a smile on his face. A cheerful greeting is exchanged and this individual places a bottle of liquor in the middle of the table and asks who would like some before grabbing a few glasses.

To go along with the story, lets go ahead …
