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 …

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.

An Afternoon with Marvin Samel (Part Two)

Welcome back to another episode of Draper Dialogue. For this episode we got to spend An Afternoon with Marvin Samel of Drew Estate.

Marvin and I go back some 15 years when he and Jonathan Drew started with a small kiosk in …

Drew Estate Cigar Safari: Bourbon Barrel-Aged Tobacco

As a fan of bourbon, one of the things that most intrigued me about my recent trip to Nicaragua on Drew Estate’s Cigar Safari tour was something so experimental, there aren’t even pictures of white-banded cigars with code names floating around the gossipnet yet. In recesses of the Drew Estate compound there are a couple Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels full of aging tobacco. There’s no telling if Drew Estate cigars with bourbon barrel-aged tobacco will show up in retail shops …
