Week in Smoke – 10/25/2017

Week in Smoke – 10/25/2017

I have a huge backlog of cigars I want to review before the end of the year, but time is running out on me.  Some cigars I want to get to, might not make it, which is why I love when we do these Week in Smoke.  Its a good way to showcase some cigars we’ve been smoking lately that we might not get a full review out on or it might be awhile until we can create one.

The …

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 111

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 108

Thanks to some poor lifestyle decisions made by a younger Brian and the present day dental consequences, I haven’t been able to enjoy that many cigars over the past week. So how can you post a new Week in Smoke? Asks the reasonable reader. Easy, is my response, these are all smoking visualization exercises, what I imagine it would be like to smoke the random assortment of cigars listed below. I’m just kidding. I already had a partially complete Week …

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 107

Man, that week went by quickly. It seems like I had barely enough time to finish a cigar or two before I was staring down the barrel of another Monday. But I’ve gotten in a few sticks in since the annual top ten lists went up. So…

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 106

This time of year can be a lot of fun, but it doesn’t always afford me many opportunities to enjoy a fine cigar. Or a lot of time to write about (or video) the cigars I do get to enjoy. But I did my best to shoehorn in as many as I could. The silver lining is that I probably enjoyed the cigars I did get to smoke a little more than I do on the long, quiet days of …

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 …
