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 …

Herfin’ Heads: Davidoff 2014 Year Of The Horse

Herfin’ Heads: Davidoff 2014 Year Of The Horse

In this very special episode of Herfin’ Heads, Ben and Brian take a look at the latest annual limited edition from Davidoff, the 2014 Year of the Horse, and Ben talks about that moment when he first “got” Davidoff cigars. Enjoy!

For those of you who don’t take kindly to moving pictures and prefer your cigar reviews in text, in brief, both Brian and Ben really enjoyed the Davidoff 2014 Year of the Horse and recommend trying it if you …

Henry Clay

Henry Clay

‘Whats old is new’ has been a phrase I have been using a lot lately. I’ve been doing my fair share of revisiting some of the cigars that we smoked back in the early days of Stogie Review. The cigar smoker today is a different creature from a cigar smoker from 2006. Back in 2006 the whole 6×60 ring gauge was in it’s infancy and The Nub size was all the rage. With all the recent turmoil in Washington DC …

Herfin’ Heads: Sam Leccia – Black and White

Herfin’ Heads: Sam Leccia – Black and White

In this very special Ebony & Ivory edition of Herfin’ Heads, Ben and Brian have a few laughs, cover both the Sam Leccia Black and White lines and learn a thing or two. OK, we probably didn’t learn anything beyond how wrong our expectations were for both lines. That turns out to be a good thing and a bad thing. But I won’t spoil it, click on the play button below for the full story.

1502 Emerald

1502 Emerald

It has been sometime since I’ve done a video review. Inspired by Walt who has made a return to doing video reviews I decided to do the same. I actually forgot how much fun it can be and not as labor intensive as I remembered it being. So this should be the first of many more to come. I make my “return” to video reviews with a review of the 1502 Emerald. Up until last week 1502 Cigars wasn’t …

Herfin’ Heads: Joya De Nicaragua Rosalones

In this edition of Herfin’ Heads Brian and Ben revisit a surprise from Nicaragua that just appeared on the American market: the Rosalones by Joya De Nicaragua. Ben lights up a new 650 Toro he purchased here, and Brian sets fire to 448 Consul he brought back from Cigar Safari. Will it continue to wow them, or was all the magic left in Nicaragua?

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 …

CHATweetUp 2013: AKA Cigars

Oh, no, we’re not done posting manufacturer interviews yet. This time I have a quick chat with Jay Lundy of AKA Cigars. In it he talks about the original AKA Hybrid line (which features a wrapper that’s a Cameroon-Corojo hybrid), the AKA Respect 2013 vintage, the Davidoff Ecuadoran Connecticut-wrapped AKA Solace and the newest, the AKA Nth Degree Maduro. Enjoy!
