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 …

With the holidays in full effect, I haven’t had the time time to prepare a proper review for this week. The good news is that I’ve had a Brian’s The Week In Smoke ready to go for a while now, so our readers will have a little something to browse in between parties and hangovers. Happy Holidays!

Back by at least one request, it’s time once again for Brian’s The Week In Smoke. In case this is your first Week …

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 4

It’s time once again for Brian’s Week In Smoke. In case this is your first Week in Smoke, be advised that it covers many (though not necessarily all) of the cigars I’ve smoked in the past week (or 2, or 3), along with a couple of quick thoughts that came to me at the time. These are not full reviews, but quick blurbs based on a single smoking experience. As such, they maybe influenced by the natural variations that …

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. …

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 2

Love it or really love it, The Week in Smoke is back with another list of shoot-from-the-hip mini-reviews. (Or should that be, burn-from-the-hip? On second thought, no, no it really shouldn’t be.)

In case this is your first Week in Smoke, be advised that it covers many (though not necessarily all) of the cigars I’ve smoked in the past week or so, along with a couple of quick thoughts that came to me at the time. These are not …

Brian’s The Week in Smoke

Brian’s The Week in Smoke

Due to some positive response to my recent coverage of the new cigars at IPCPR 2010, and some encouragement to smoke through the rest of them, I bringing you something I’m calling “The Week in Smoke.” Like the preceding article, this covers many (though not necessarily all) of the cigars I’ve smoked in the past week or so, along with a couple of quick thoughts that came to me at the time. These are not full reviews, but quick …

We talk about the new cigars he has for the show, monster series, out of costume series, saints, sinners and adopt a farm. Great stuff as always…and who doesn’t like red vine? LOL

Five More Questions

Thanks to everyone for their comment love on my first five questions. The e-mails started rolling in and so here are five more questions.

This time around the focus has to do with storage and humidification questions. Do machine made cigars need humidification? What the fuck did I do to my Cigar Oasis Ultra? Which hygrometer is right? Where do I place my humidification device? And my personal favorite; why can’t I use plain tap water?

Enjoy and keep sending …
