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 …

Play fantasy baseball against Jerry and Ben and win prizes from Miami Cigar!

Its almost spring time.  That means its baseball is right around the corner.  Jerry and I are diehard baseball fans (Orioles for Jerry and the Braves for me) and figured a fun contest would be to have a fantasy baseball league with our cigar brothers and sisters.  What would make it even more fun?  How about winning cigars from Miami Cigar?  Our friend, Barry Stein at Miami Cigar, has graciously donated cigars for prizes throughout the season.  Here …

Ben’s Top 10 Cigars of 2013

Ben’s Top 10 Cigars of 2013

It’s that time of that year where we put out our top cigars of the year.  It always hard to try to put our favorite cigars together for a top ten list.  There are so many really good cigars that it makes it hard to pick just 10 and try to put them in some kind of order.  This is what I consider my top 10 cigars of the year.  I tried not to include in rare or elusive cigars …

Historically this list is published on December 16th so our readers can reference and add last minute items to their holiday wish lists. Our friends at that popular print lifestyle publication caught on to this idea and decided to start their Top 25 revealing process early this year. …

CHATweetUp 2013: Nomad Cigars

Fred Rewey’s a guy I’ve been meaning to talk to for a while. The opportunity presented itself a few weeks ago at the Chattanooga Tweetup, in a walk-in humidor conveniently stocked with plenty of Nomad cigars. In this interview, we touch on the Fugitive II, the Esteli Lot 1386 and the upcoming box-pressed Sumatra S-307. We also learn that no humidor is safe from a videobomb.

CHATweetUp 2013: 262 Cigars

We missed Clint at the trade show this year, so I made a point of catching up with him at the recent Chattanooga Tweetup to talk cigars. In this video he talks a little about the new Revere Lancero, the Paradigm Corona, possible limited edition fall seasonal blend and his mission to turn every cigar shop in America into a lancero shop.

CHATweetUp 2013: Kings Cigars

I wasn’t familiar with Kings Cigars when I arrived at the tweetup, and it wasn’t long until I was introduced to Anwar and Pete, two of the guys behind the new boutique company. Click the play button for the scoop on their journey starting out in the cigar business. Their current lineup includes the Baron, a “Connecticut with an attitude”, the Conde, a San Andres Maduro, and the King of Kings, a box-pressed 6 x 64 Ecuadoran Habano. They …

Enjoy!

In this video we talk about Cabal and Esoteric cigars, how he got started, the Cabal concept and what it’s like working with Hendrik Kelner Jr.
