Ask The Readers: What do you do with Empty Cigar Boxes?

Ask The Readers: What do you do with Empty Cigar Boxes?

Ever since I started smoking cigars, I’ve been saving empty boxes. At first it was simply a matter of having a cool box. Eventually the empty boxes served as great organizational tools for inside my coolidor.

I’ve been saving my boxes for so long that these days I do it out of habit. Every once in a while I get a call or visit from an uncle who asks for them, and I’m happy to turn them over. He …

An Afternoon with Pete Johnson (Part Four)

An Afternoon with Pete Johnson (Part Four)

Part Four, the final chapter. Lots of great discussion here about tasting cigars off the bench and envisioning how they will taste as they age, too many 90 plus ratings? Joya de Nicaragua in the 1970’s, more advice for bloggers and the benefits for manufacturers. Cigar technology, dying of cigars, consumer education, sorting tobacco, seed variety, the decline of Cuban cigars, aging cigars and props to Rolando Reyes Sr. and Dion Giolito.

I hope you all have enjoyed the interview. …

An Afternoon with Pete Johnson (Part Three)

An Afternoon with Pete Johnson (Part Three)

This is Part Three focusing on questions from the audience. Is Pete still having fun? Times of crisis? Experience working with The Garcia Family. Second guessing blends, more info on Little Monsters, and blogger’s responsibility in the industry? Note to self, gotta invest in a third microphone for audience use.

Same format as an An Evening with Benji Menendez and An Afternoon with Ernesto Perez Carrillo. This weekend Pete Johnson of Tatuaje Cigars was in Washington DC and Bethesda …

An Afternoon with Pete Johnson (Part Two)

An Afternoon with Pete Johnson (Part Two)

This is Part Two of Four and has a lot of great content. The story of La Verite, the “romance” in the cigar business, a Tatuaje farm, who is to blame for current pricing, could the cigar industry self regulate itself, the golden age of cigars and an explanation on fermentation.

An Afternoon with Pete Johnson (Part One)

Same format as an An Evening with Benji Menendez and An Afternoon with Ernesto Perez Carrillo. This weekend Pete Johnson of Tatuaje Cigars was in Washington DC and Bethesda MD celebrating the start of W.Curtis Draper 125th Anniversary year with the release of the Cabaiguan WCD 120 Redux. Towards the end of the afternoon, Pete and George Brightman (W.Curtis Draper-Bethesda) sat down and talked about Tatuaje Cigars and the cigar industry in general.

23 Minutes with Pete Johnson

23 Minutes with Pete Johnson

It’s pretty interesting to note that this celebrates five years of the 20 Minutes with Pete Johnson series of videos here on Stogie Review. So first I want to thank Pete for always being giving with his time. Secondly I want to thank W.Curtis Draper for giving me a home to record for the past five years. This series of videos has turned into a tradition that I hope continues for many more years to come.

In this interview Pete …

Mike’s Look at Cutters

Mike’s Look at Cutters


Welcome back once again my friends to another week of me battling this dang cold with a sore throat, cough and taste buds that seem to have been burnt off at the roots.

I am going to talk just a little bit about different cuts on cigars this week. I know most of you will groan but there are a lot of newer smokers or even veterans that have never seen nor tried anything other than the standard straight cut, …

Three Things Brian Knows About Cigars

Due to temporary schedule conflicts, don’t have a review for you this week, but I’m not going to leave you hanging. I considered posting another Brian’s The Week In Smoke, but I felt like doing something different. Since Jerry ripped off the Week In Smoke concept, I figure it’s only fair I hijack one of his. But he is a man of few ideas, so that pretty much just leaves his “Three Things” post. (Which he actually stole from …

Three Things I Know to Be True (Cigars Edition)

This is a bit different post than I normally do. For awhile now I’ve been a fan of TED | Talks. TED stands for Technology Entertainment and Design. Since being the father of a baby girl (she’s actually a toddler these days but she’ll always be my baby) a TED | Talk earlier this year caught my wife’s attention and thus mine was one by Sarah Kay. Sarah Kay is a spoken word poet and her TedTalk …

Your Question, My Answers (YQMA) Episode 2.04

Your Question, My Answers (YQMA) Episode 2.04

A few weeks ago, Jerry, Brian, Mike, and I sat down and recorded another episode of YQMA. Due to some time constraints it took us a little longer to get this episode put together than usual.

Like most of our recent episodes of YQMA, this one has a variety of humorous moments in addition to questions submitted from our readers.

The questions include:
  • Our thoughts on the CRA and the semi-recent news of their distribution of funds
  • How many cigars
