Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 57

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 57

It’s been a busy couple of weeks, with a lot of time spent on the road. Much of that time out of state. It was one of those vacations where it’s harder to find time (and place) to smoke a cigar than it is at home. But I’ve been making up for it since I got back.

It’s once time again for another issue of Brian’s The Week In Smoke. In case this is your first Week in Smoke, …

Week in Smoke – Bayou Edition No. 6

Week in Smoke – Bayou Edition No. 6

Its been excruciatingly hot this week with the temperatures in the high 90s and the heat index around 106-107, so my cigar smoking has, understandably, been reduced. Still, even with my cut back in smoking, I was able to smoke some pretty interesting cigars. Here is a good sampling of some of the cigars I was able to smoke this past week.

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 56

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 reviews, but quick blurbs based on …

BEN’S WEEK IN SMOKE NO. 5 – THE BAYOU EDITION

BEN’S WEEK IN SMOKE NO. 5 – THE BAYOU EDITION

Drew Estate Unicos A

This was a real treat for me.  It was my birthday earlier last week and a good friend of mine gave me this cigar to celebrate my birthday.  He won these from Drew Estate from a contest they were running at the Chattanooga Tweetup a few years ago and saved them for a special occasion.  A few years made this cigar a lot more mellow than I thought it would be.  It was a very smooth …

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 53

It’s been a rough couple of weeks for me when it comes to cigars, some sort of unpleasant head cold had me out of commission for the better part of a week, and it took a few more days for my sense of smell and taste to return to normal. But the good news is I have a bit of a backlog on smoking notes from before my sinuses exploded. That means…

A new format for the Week in Smoke series. Hopefully the video clips instead of images from my Instagram feed will be well received.

I’m not very knowledgable with beer, the brewing process, components, ingredients or even the lingo …

Week in Smoke – TGT Edition

Week in Smoke – TGT Edition

I think we need to start The Stogie Review Book Club or something…Ink & Ashes? Received some interesting e-mails and Facebook messages about other books I should checkout. The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle got a lot of recommendations which was already on my list since it was mentioned in 10 Percent Happier. What am I reading now? I’m currently finishing up Dirty Daddy: The Chronicles of A Family Man Turned Filthy Comedian by Bob Saget aka Danny Tanner …
