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 …

I’ll Be Damned – That Cigar Actually Looks Like a Little Fish

I’ll Be Damned – That Cigar Actually Looks Like a Little Fish

The room was dark and I found myself staring blankly at the ceiling. I had been awake for a few minutes and resisted the urge to roll over and look at the clock. It had to be close to 4:00am. Waking up like this, shortly before my alarm sounded, was becoming an all too common occurrence.

I don’t know how long I laid there but the alarm sounded soon enough. I pulled myself out of bed, headed to the bathroom …

Aging The Opus X: Do or Don’t?

Aging The Opus X: Do or Don’t?

A night or two ago I was smoking a well-aged Opus X Perfecxion No. 5. As is my custom, I spent a few minutes thinking about what I was tasting- grass, caramel, cedar, maybe a little white pepper. I also noticed it didn’t seem as robust a cigar as the last few Opus X’s I’ve had. That stands to reason, this little petite corona has been sitting undisturbed in a humidor for years.

As with many of my cigars, extended …

Do you shy away from a big fat stick?

Do you shy away from a big fat stick?

Every single cigar shop across the country has that one guy. You know the one. “An 80 ring gauge! For Christ’s sake, smoking that must be like putting your mouth around a big ol’…” You get the idea.

Regardless of the phobias some people have about big ring cigars, they seem to be all the rage. I can remember a time six or seven years ago when I didn’t like smoking anything larger than a 50. Now I’ll have the …

Cigars and Talk

Cigars and Talk

Sunday was a beautiful day here in Pennsylvania. It was so nice, in fact, that I couldn’t resist the urge to fire up the lawn tractor and and tame my wildly growing lawn. With my wife and daughter out visiting my mother in-law, it was a perfect opportunity for me to light up a cigar and putz around the lawn.

Having planned for this very situation, I picked up a couple of Ashton Cigars. These aren’t your usual Ashton, these …
