Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 118

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 118

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 …

Ben’s Week in Smoke – No. 18

Ben’s Week in Smoke – No. 18

It’s been a busy week getting ready for the holidays, but at least I was able to get in several cigars during this time.  I tried to smoke some new stuff or stuff that I haven’t had in quite awhile.  I was lucky that none of the cigars I smoked were duds and even some really good.  Without further ado, here is my weekly list.

This was an old throwback for me.  I smoked a …

Ben’s Week in Smoke – No. 17

It’s been quite awhile since I did a Week in Smoke; a year actually.  It’s about time that I did another one.  I’m going to try to do these once a week or at least every other week as I know everyone seems to like these posts from Brian and I.  For those that haven’t read one of our Week in Smokes before, its just a list of things we have smoked during the past week or two with our …

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 116

A lot has happened since the last time I did The Week In Smoke. There was a tradeshow or two (less than five, certainly), the weather started to cool off again (sorta), people started putting pumpkin spice in inappropriate places (mouths, mostly), and we started doing numerical ratings here on Stogie Review (terrifying, but this is a safe space). It’s hard to keep up with it all. So I’ve done the only thing I know how to do, smoke as …

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 115

We’re coming up on my favorite time of the year for cigars- trade show season. It’s also a really busy time. A lot of back and forth emails discussing appointment times on the floor of the trade show. That and increased activity with other projects haven’t left a lot of time to set up a proper cigar review. But that’s OK. I’ve been picking up and smoking a lot of interesting one offs lately (though unfortunately not the Illusione OneOff …

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 114

It’s been a busy week, but not so busy that I didn’t light up an interesting assortment of cigars. And since it’s been a minute and a half since I did one…

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 113

Hopefully you’ll have a chance to eat too much, put your feet up, and light up a few good cigars this week while being generally thankful for the good things in life. That’s my goal. Before donning my combat gear and rushing out at o’ dark-thirty to buy a 937” razzamataz definition television with the latest 3D virtual cup holders. I hope someone brings a camera to Walmart, I’ve choreographed a pretty epic brawl sequence, if I do say so …

Warped Lirio Rojo

Just one of my staples.  I consider this one of the best, if not the best cigar from Warped.  It’s a perfect size with a medium body and great flavor.  It’s the Goldilocks of Warped….not too strong, not too weak, not too small, not too large, etc.  I mean, it was my No. 2 Cigar of the Year for 2016.

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 112

You may have noticed I’ve been a little quiet since The IPCPR 2017 Complete Digest posted a few weeks back. Sadly, I haven’t been on vacation, well, I was for the last week. It’s that time of year, and I caught whatever crud du jour that was going around. I don’t know for sure, but I think it was a mild case of whooping cholera. It really took the wind of my sails for a couple weeks, and also the …
