Commentary: A Good Omen in Fight Against FDA Cigar Rules?

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 08:00:17 +0000

For the first time in a while, there is reason for real optimism about the fight to overturn the onerous FDA cigar regulations. Living and working in Washington, I’ve learned to take optimistic reports from advocates about forthcoming progress on an issue with a grain of salt, since people often mistake their own enthusiasm and […]



Cigar Review: Espinosa 601 La Bomba Warhead 2013

Mon, 24 Jul 2017 08:00:23 +0000

There was a time when the cigars in the EO Brands portfolio—particularly 601 Blue, 601 Red, and 601 Green—were mainstays in my humidors. Back then, Erik Espinosa and Eddie Ortega were still in a partnership, and the 601 line was produced by none other than Don José “Pepin” Garcia at My Father Cigars. In 2010, […]

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 08:00:38 +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.” In 2012, Illusione’s Dion Giolito introduced this cigar as a small batch exclusive to his Fumare store in Reno, Nevada. In 2013, a second La Grand Classe Rex […]

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.” Azan is an old Cuban brand that was revived by Roberto P.

Cigar Review: Lost & Found Backdoor Bambi

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 08:00:02 +0000

In 2014, Robert Caldwell, Jaclyn Sears, and Tony Bellatto announced Impromptu, a line of limited release cigars sourced from the aging rooms of various factories. Later, the enterprise would be renamed Lost & Found Cigars. According to Robert Caldwell: “Over several months I have been traveling all over the world spending a lot of time […]



Cigar Review: Villiger La Flor de Ynclan Churchill

Mon, 17 Jul 2017 08:00:54 +0000

Among the many new cigars introduced at the annual IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas last week was La Flor de Ynclan from Villiger Cigars. Actually, in the this case, it’s more accurate to say La Flor de Ynclan was re-introduced; Villiger originally debuted the line, which takes its name from an old Cuban brand, […]

Sat, 15 Jul 2017 08:00:49 +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 acquired this Soneros Habano Claro Corona Gorda (5.625 x 46) over two years ago for about $7.25. I don’t believe time has been particularly kind to its tobaccos. […]
