Get Your Booger Hooker Off The Bang Switch

Get Your Booger Hooker Off The Bang Switch

About seven or eight years ago I had my first experience with guns. It turned out to be a lot of fun and ultimately lead me down the rabbit hole. I went from shooting a gun for fun to buying my first gun, to getting licensed to carry, to shooting competitively, and so on and so forth.

One aspect of the cigar community that has fascinated me over the years is just how many cigar smokers are …

Knob Creek Single Barrel Select Experience

Knob Creek Single Barrel Select Experience

Over the past year I’ve had the pleasure of sampling a variety of Beam Suntory product (Makers of Jim Beam, Knob Creek, Maker’s Mark, etc) due to a good working relationship that the local rep has with Sir Stogies.

Last week I got a message from Tim (Owner of Sir Stogies) asking if I would like to participate in a limited tasting he was doing with Knob Creek. I was happy to accept the invitation and sat in on …

Win a Cain F Table Torch

Win a Cain F Table Torch

A couple of weeks ago, Jerry and I received a surprise email from a Stogie Review Fan. This individual was curious as to why he was no longer receiving email updates for new cigar reviews. When the email came through, my first thought was “Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve seen an email update on some time either”.

As Jerry and I looked into the situation, it became clear that our Feedburner Email Subscription Service had …

Favorite Quick Smokes – TGT Edition (2014)

Favorite Quick Smokes – TGT Edition (2014)

It has been sometime since I published a list like this. Three years is a long time in the cigar world. New cigars enter the market, old cigars leave the market and of course, what you like changes. So I decided to update my list of favorite quick smokes that I published back in 2011.

Same rules apply. To qualify cigars cannot be more than 5 inches in length and around a 44-48 ring gauge (give or take a bit), …

TGT Top 10 Sampler

TGT Top 10 Sampler

Thanks to everyone for the kind words on my Top 10 List this year. I was surprised to hear from many of you who mentioned only having tried a handful of the cigars on my list. It just so happens that my friends at Tobacco Leaf in Jessup MD carry every one of my Top 10 cigars and have generously stepped up with an amazing deal on the TGT Top 10 Sampler pack. All ten cigars for $55 shipped. That …

IPCPR 2013 Post Mortem

IPCPR 2013 Post Mortem

It’s been nearly a week since IPCPR 2013 ended, and I could help but reflect on the events of the show, good, bad and otherwise.

Bad Boys of IPCPR
It makes sense to start at the beginning. After answering questions about it all show, I started to regret making it public, but there was too much comic value in Jerry and I getting kicked off the floor. The embarrassing high-speed security scooter ride, the attempt to confiscate ALL my cigars …

An Afternoon with Marvin Samel (Part Four)

An Afternoon with Marvin Samel (Part Four)

Welcome back to another episode of Draper Dialogue. For this episode we got to spend An Afternoon with Marvin Samel of Drew Estate. Marvin has become a bit of a local fixture in the DC area, spending the good part of 2012 living in the area lobbying and walking the halls of Congress on behalf of the entire industry. Marvin and I go back some 15 years when he and Jonathan Drew started with a small kiosk in …
