Hit by a Wave of Uncertainty

Hit by a Wave of Uncertainty

Have you ever lit up a cigar then, half way through, regretted your decision? I’m not talking about a cigar that tastes bad. In this case we are talking about a tried and true stick that always seems to deliver what is expected of it.

This morning I woke up earlier than usual. After a few minutes of staring at the time on my alarm clock, I got out of bed and decided to get a jump on the day. …

Shooting The Shit with Walt – Episode 2

Shooting The Shit with Walt – Episode 2

Welcome back, my lovelies, for another episode of Shooting The Shit with Walt. If you aren’t familiar with this format, you’ll probably either love it or hate it. It boils down to a guy smoking a cigar, driving along in his car, talking about whatever happens to cross his mind.

It seems a little weird for a cigar review website, I get that, but I’ve been doing this for nearly a decade. I’m allowed to be a little weird and …

Shooting The Shit with Walt

Shooting The Shit with Walt

Once upon a time I was a pretty big deal on Stogie Review. I would routinely sit down in my office, fire up my camcorder, and record detailed cigar reviews that went on for upwards of 30 minutes. It wasn’t everyone’s thing but I had a following and they enjoyed the format.

As time went on, life got busy. Suddenly I was a busy father and squeezing in the sort of time it took to record and produce those videos …

A Walk with my Wife and a Hererra Esteli

A Walk with my Wife and a Hererra Esteli

Last week my wife and I celebrated 8 years of marriage. Our plan was to have our daughter spend a night or two with her grandparents while we went away. Nothing fancy, just a night or two at a bed and breakfast about an hour away.

We both filed the necessary requests with our employers and scheduled time away. As the date of our anniversary approached, things changed and getting away for a couple of days no longer looked promising. …

Reminiscing About Old Cigars

Reminiscing About Old Cigars

Every now and then I’ll find myself sitting in the Private Lounge at Sir Stogies. Several of the guys will be sitting around and, on occasion, we’ll take a break from solving all the world’s problems and have a discussion about cigars.

My favorite question is “Have you ever heard of…” or “Have you ever smoked…” because it is an invitation to go deep inside the rabbit hole. I’m not well versed on new product but when something a …

A Crazy Morning Routine and Quick Smokes

A Crazy Morning Routine and Quick Smokes

When it comes right down to it, I am a creature of habit. I thrive on routine and find great comfort in it. Throw off my schedule and suddenly I’m stressed out and over analyzing the situation. As you would imagine, this means I have a morning routine that I very much like to stick to.

During the work week my iHome alarm sounds at 4:00am. I have the alarm situated across the room so that I have to get …

Ask The Readers: Impressive DIY Cigar Box Projects

Ask The Readers: Impressive DIY Cigar Box Projects

If you’re a regular reader here at Stogie Review, I’m going to go out on a limb and say you’ve been around the cigar scene long enough to have seen a variety of things done with cigar boxes. Clocks, Lamps, and even Guitars are pretty common DIY Cigar Box Projects.

Just the other day I was perusing Facebook when my Uncle (a non-smoker) shared a video. It was an older gentleman playing a guitar. It wasn’t really my thing but …

Sir Stogies Cigar Crawl

Sir Stogies Cigar Crawl

One of the nicest things about having a local cigar shop to call home is the camaraderie. Imagine the well known scene from cheers as Norm walks through the door and all of the regular patrons call out his name in welcome. It isn’t quite that rowdy when you walk into Sir Stogies but everyone knows one another and it is always a good time.

A few weeks ago I walked through the door, said hello, and took a seat …

El Mas Chingon by Room 101

El Mas Chingon by Room 101

A couple of weeks ago I published a review of the Inferno 3rd Degree, a cigar produced by Oliva for Famous Smoke Shop. Despite the cigars not being quite what I was expecting, I enjoyed the samples. Actually, I enjoyed them enough to put in an order for the original Inferno for comparison.

During that review of the Inferno 3rd Degree, I mentioned that Famous was kind enough to also send a few El Mas Chingon Cigars for …

Inferno 3rd Degree by Oliva

Inferno 3rd Degree by Oliva

A few years ago the fine folks over at Famous Smoke Shop were kind enough to send me some samples of a new exclusive they were selling. The cigar was Inferno and it was produced by Oliva.

Truth be told, if I had to pull out my wallet to try that very first cigar, I may not have smoked it. The band was plain and the name literally made me mouth “ugh” when I read it. Would this just be …
