Review: Drew Estate Central Park Stroll

I think it's fair to say that the Drew Estate Central Park Stroll was the first pipe tobacco that really got my attention.  I was exposed to all the DE pipe tobaccos (made by Scandinavian Tobacco Group) during IPCPR 2014, but I didn't really sit down and fire up a bowl for a few months.  As luck would have it, the first tin of DE pipe tobacco that I opened was the Central Park Stroll.…

My Top Cigars of 2014

When I created the Cigar Federation Top New Releases of 2014 list, I didn't include my own list.  I wanted to have no bias whatsoever in the creation of the list so I took everyone's list, compiled that into what you've seen, and left mine out.  However, now that we've shared our group list, and since I have the platform here to present my list, and most importantly because my list varies greatly from…
