Quick Smoke: La Palina Nicaragua Oscuro Gordo

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 08:00:14 +0000

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.” I lit this behemoth (6 x 58), a new line from La Palina, at the kickoff of an NFL playoff game and was still puffing well into halftime. […]

Cigar Spirits: Four Tips for Better Whiskey Drinking

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 08:00:06 +0000

Last week, my colleague dispensed with some myths about cigars. This week, I’m taking a torch to some whiskey myths and offering my best advice for enjoying whiskey. Vanishing Value Whiskeys Only a few years ago, I would easily say that, when it comes to value, bourbon and rye were a far better bargain than single […]



Cigar Review: MBombay Gaaja Maduro Torpedo

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 08:00:13 +0000

Since it was formally announced on July 1, 2016, MBombay’s Gaaja line has only had a single blend available in a single vitola: a Toro, which I reviewed (and thoroughly enjoyed) last summer. That changed earlier this month when a second Gaaja format was added—a Torpedo—along with a Maduro blend. Today I review the new […]



Quick Smoke: Drew Estate Undercrown Shade Robusto

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 08:00:38 +0000

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar. My first experience with Undercrown Shade was a bit of a mixed bag: well-made, promising flavors, but marred by a hint of bitterness and an unpleasant grassy element. This more recent experience was […]



Quick Smoke: Eastern Standard Midnight Express Toro

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 08:00:04 +0000

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.” This line from Caldwell Cigar Co. is billed as the maduro version of the Eastern Standard line, with an Arapiraca wrapper. The Toro (6 x 52), about $12.50, […]

Below is our latest, which is the 518th in the series. 1) This week, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia (pictured above), the Cigar Association of America, International […]



Cigar Review: Foundry Time Flies 550

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 08:00:02 +0000

When large companies find themselves under assault from smaller operations with innovative products, the response is often to try to replicate what’s leading the attack. Think of Ford’s Pinto to compete with smaller foreign imports, or MillerCoors’ Blue Moon reaction to craft beer brewers, or any one of many similar situations. In the cigar world, […]



Commentary: Older and (Somewhat) Wiser, At Least When it Comes to Cigars

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 08:00:56 +0000

Over the course of twelve years of serious cigar smoking, I’ve learned a thing or two. True, there’s still so much more cigar knowledge to absorb—that’s one of the beautiful things about this complex, engrossing hobby—but I’ve come a long, long way since my early days as a young brother of the leaf. I was […]



Quick Smoke: My Father The Judge Toro

Sun, 12 Feb 2017 08:00:28 +0000

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.” This new offering from My Father Cigars immediately brings back thoughts of the early cigars made by Don José “Pepin” Garcia: opening with a blast of pepper; winding […]
