The FDA Update with Frank Herrera – 8/30/16

The FDA Update with Frank Herrera – 8/30/16

In the latest episode of The FDA Update with Frank Herrera we talk about the August 16th order issued by the judge in the case Philip Morris brought against the FDA. The opinion rendered applies to the guidance documents the FDA provided with regard to Substantial Equivalence (not the actual deeming regulations), and looks to be beneficial to cigar manufacturers. You may have heard something about it- it has to do with packaging changes and box counts. What you may …

The FDA Update with Frank Herrera

The FDA Update with Frank Herrera

We interrupt our regularly scheduled IPCPR coverage to bring you an update on the legal state of the cigar industry now that the dreaded August 8th effective date has past. If you caught our interview with Frank at IPCPR 2016, you know there was the possibility that this date might be pushed back. And that’s were we get started this time around. Did it happen? (You probably know the answer to that already.) And if it did, what actually …

Top 10 Cigars – TGT Edition (2014)

Top 10 Cigars – TGT Edition (2014)

Last year (2013) was a horrendous year so I spent this year (2014) focusing on me. I’ll probably do the same in 2015. Meditation is awesome. “If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place.” Thats an Eckart Tolle quote. The politics of cigar blogging has made it difficult for me to enjoy the process of blogging. There have been only a few times this year where I was blogging because it was actually fun. I got …

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

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 …

Top 10 Cigars – TGT Edition (2013)

Top 10 Cigars – TGT Edition (2013)

I don’t know about the rest of you but 2013 is one of those years that I want to put behind me. Personally, I am hoping for a positive and joyous 2014. 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 …
