Covering Your Ash: Quesada Oktoberfest

We realize that we’re a little late with this review seeing as how it’s now mid-November, but 9 days without power and another week’s worth of storm debris cleanup has pushed our schedule back a bit.

With the excuses out of the way let’s get on with the review, the Quesada Oktoberfest, the latest offering by Manuel Quesada. The idea behind the cigar was to create a…

The Stats That Broke The Camels Back

I got up one morning last week, and turned on my usual morning talk radio background noise.

Cigarmy Review - San Lotano Oval by AJ Fernandez

 

For our review this week, we’re smoking the San Lotano Oval, by A.J. Fernandez.  My local B&M just got these in, and since the Oval has been such a huge hit for AJF, I thought I’d give it a try and see what all the hubbub is about.  It is available in 6 vitolas, and I selected the robusto (5.5″ X 54 ring) for…

What's your function: Consumption or Culture?

I’ve always been fascinated with leatherface, teeth grit old guys who use tobacco: whether it be smokeless, pipes, or cigars. There is just something awesome, mysterious, and real about them. They still dress in the same wear as they did at the age of 30, so when in a group they appear to be dressed in an at least cohesive style..I don’t know what it is: the way they chew on…
