The Box-Worthies: Brian’s Top 10 Cigars of 2015

The Box-Worthies: Brian’s Top 10 Cigars of 2015

This is the part where I whine about how hard it is to pick ten cigars I smoked in 2015, rank them and declare them the box-worthiest of all cigars to be box-worthy in that year. The truth is, this year’s list seemed easier to compile. I quickly put together a pool or 25 or so cigars to choose from in a tidy little text document. And then I lost the tidy little text document. A little later while I …

Ben’s Top 10 Cigars of the Year

Ben’s Top 10 Cigars of the Year

Every year I try to get my top 10 cigars of the year out before Christmas and every year I never seem to make it. Better late than never I guess. This year, I was thinking how easy it would be to come up with 10 cigars because I was thinking there wasn’t much that came out this year that really blew me away.  I figured I would have a short list and struggle to get to 10 cigars I …

Fuente Fuente OpusX Rosado Oscuro Oro (First Impressions)

As the minutes ticked by I found myself stuck. My notes weren’t ready for a Week In Smoke, and I didn’t feel motivated enough to do one of the reviews I planned for this week. But I really wanted to try one of my Fuente Fuente OpusX Rosado Oscuro Oros, a late Christmas present to myself. Ordinarily I’d let these cigars sit for a while, but recent experience has indicated that the OpusX is often ready to go, right off …

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 96

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 96

What a busy time of the year. Shopping for presents, travelling to deliver the presents, listening a friend or relative’s favorite yarn for the 12th time presented in stunning intox-a-vision, watching the new Star Wars, it’s hard to find time to sneak in a smoke. But somehow I always do. It’s either a gift or a personality flaw. In either case…

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

H. Upmann Connoisseur No. 1

H. Upmann Connoisseur No. 1

The H. Upmann Connoisseur No. 1 is probably one of the most forgotten robustos in all the lines from Cuba.  It’s in a very crowded group with the likes of the Cohiba robusto, Partagas Serie D No. 4, Montecristo Edmundo, Ramon Allones Specially Selected, etc.  It’s a shame because this cigar is one of the best in the bunch.  It doesn’t require much down time to be ready to smoke either which is great since you don’t have a wait too …
