Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 105

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 105

So I was working on the last Week in Smoke and it occurred to me, I smoked a lot of cigars on vacation. Like two weeks worth of interesting cigars. Which does check out, since I was gone for two weeks. And after a brief, sitcom-esque flashback to me smoking cigars in a much warmer part of the world, I decided to save the second week for another Week In Smoke. Also, it was getting late and the bourbon was …

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 104

It’s good to be back. If you follow me on social media, you’ve probably seen a lot of pictures of exotic locales interspersed with pictures of cigars that rarely show up in one of my Weeks in Smoke. I was on vacation in Southeast Asia (Malaysia and Bali) and I made a point to browse the local brick and mortars for interesting cigars as often as possible. I was successful in finding some great cigars, and I thoroughly enjoyed the …

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 103

If there’s a theme for this Week In Smoke, it’s a mix of new cigars and relaxation. Heavy on the relaxation. Maybe a little procrastination too. It’s been a busy summer, and I for one am ready to welcome a less hectic season of bourbon and heavier beers. Sure, I drink both year round, but it’s nice to be able to do so on a patio without bursting into flame or ingesting lethal amounts of pollen. And shorter, cooler days …

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 102

The time has really flown by the past couple of weeks, and for a good part of it I was smoking cigars and drinking unusual beers in the exotic and mysterious places like Alabama and Oregon. I was also a guest on a local radio show talking about beer. Everything else is hazy. Imagine me slowly emerging for the shadows, possibly with a item of seasonally-inappropriate clothing. Like a scarf. Initially you’re terrified, but then I ask you for …

Ben’s Week in Smoke – Bayou Edition No. 14

I know it’s been awhile since I last posted at Stogie Review, but I have a good excuse.  I recently moved from the Mississippi Gulf Coast to Houston, TX.  While the move didn’t keep me from smoking cigars, it definitely curtailed how many I smoked since I was packing and moving our stuff to Houston.  I didn’t have a lot of time to video and edit any new reviews.  Here, at …

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 101

It’s once time again for another issue of Brian’s The 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 the past month, or however long it has been since the last issue), along with a couple of quick thoughts that came to me at the time. These are not full cigar reviews, but quick blurbs based …

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 100

Over the past few weeks I’ve been thinking about what I should smoke for the hundredth edition of Brian’s The Week In Smoke. The problem is the more you think about it, the harder it gets. It’s like that with anything though, you overthink it, and a simple task becomes an ominous burden. Knowing the task was heading that direction, I decided to stop thinking and start winging. I winged it and hoped that divine inspiration would shine up …

Stogie Review on Beer Guys Radio

Stogie Review on Beer Guys Radio

Brian and Sean at the mic. It was a long week, so I did some napping between segments.

This week I did something new, I went on a local radio show to talk about cigar and craft beer pairings. That’s right, traditional over-the-air waves radio. I was a guest on an hour long show called Beer Guys Radio which broadcasts every Saturday on AM 920 in Atlanta (and everywhere else via iHeartRADIO).

The hosts of the show, Aaron Williams

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 99

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 99

It’s been a busy couple of weeks. Last Friday I was looking at the calendar thinking “how is it Friday already, and didn’t I just ask myself that same question yesterday?” So I’ve been uncharacteristically quiet for a while, but I haven’t been so busy I didn’t have time to enjoy some fine cigars. And as they burned, I thought about what to review next. I have a few ideas, but I don’t yet have one that’s ready to go …
