Ask The Readers: Do you use cigars as a motivational tool?

Ask The Readers: Do you use cigars as a motivational tool?

A few weeks ago I was reading through my cigar subscriptions in Google Reader and stumbled onto a very interesting series. Craig Vanderslice, of CigarCraig.com, posted an article entitled “Take A Cigar For A Walk”. In this article Craig introduces us to a man named Tommy.

Tommy is overweight and gives us a look at his successes and failures with various weight management programs. While reading Craig’s blog, Tommy tells us that he was inspired to take …

Catching up with Ernesto Perez Carrillo

Catching up with Ernesto Perez Carrillo

I got word yesterday that our good friend Ernesto Perez Carrillo was going to be in my neck of the woods at the Gaithersburg location of Davidus Cigars. We last spoke to Ernesto back at the 2010 IPCPR in New Orleans so it was a great opportunity to spend a few minutes catching up with him. Ernesto and his family are making some of the best cigars out there. The Short Run made our Top 10 Lists for 2010. What …

These are not full reviews, but quick blurbs based on a single smoking experience. As …

Ask The Readers: Old School Blends

Ask The Readers: Old School Blends

While the east coast was greeted by its second snow storm in less than a month, I sat warmly in my office working away. I decided to take advantage of my ability to work from home and opted not to venture out onto the snowy streets. My wife had the same thought cross her mind and called out of work. Presented with the rare scenario to work from home while my wife tended to our daughter meant that my day …

Before You Buy That Top 10

Before You Buy That Top 10

This week the big dog barked, and all across the cigar-smoking country (and possibly the world), printers cranked to life, dutifully replicating the most anticipated top 10 list of the year. Chances are, you’ve seen it already. But before you take your printout, withdraw the $165.96 it would take to buy the ten smokes ($95.05 if you can’t buy Cubans) and drop by your local brick and mortar, we thought we’d humbly offer you a second opinion. Who knows, maybe …

Epic Cigar Fail

Epic Cigar Fail


This weekend I did something that many would consider Epic Cigar Fail. Before spilling my guts and confessing, let me first set the stage for this story. For the past couple of weeks my wife and I have been talking about taking a two and a half hour drive to visit my grandmother.

You see, my grandmother lives out in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. She is roughly a half hour further, for me, from where Cigarfest is held. …
