Fratello Cigars at The Outlaw Cigar Company: I love this place.

A lot of you have seen me go on and on about The Outlaw Cigar Company in Kansas City - how big, fun, awesome it is. I've even posted pictures.  Finally I got the opportunity to actually record an Outlaw party for the record.

Kendall Culbertson, owner of The Outlaw, as he puts it, "promotes the cigar lifestyle", Kansas-Cowboy style.  The store, with its 1500 square foot walk-in humidor, two separate 3-TV lounge areas (one available to rent out for parties, including the poker table),…

Review: Tarazona Revolution 305 Torpedo

Since I can't pass up a weasel opportunity for those La Barba Purple, and I had this stick on deck, and for SOME reason no one has reviewed it yet, look at what you get!

I picked up this Tarazona Revolution 305 Torpedo through last year's Cigar Federation pass. As always with a pass full of sticks you've never tried, grabbing this was a total leap of faith, especially because at the time I had no idea what I liked or wanted. Lucky me.

Cigar: Tarazona…

Completely Clueless Cigar Newb Review #2: Siboney Reserve, 5 lb mark

I'm back! And, as promised, as part of my Lose Weight, Smoke Cigars effort, since I recently hit 5 pounds down, I got me a cigar! Since this was my first 5 lbs, I got to have a "cheap" stick, so I grabbed one I've never had: the Siboney Reserve Robusto. Cheaper than cheap, even, because I got them at auction, 5er for $5. Even regular price at Famous Smoke they're $18, so regularly a $3-ish stick. I grabbed them because no one else was bidding on them. Why? Couldn't tell you.

Here's… Continue

Completely Clueless Cigar Newb: A Plan to Win

Alright FedHeds, I have begun playing a new game, one which I’ve decided you get to watch, if you’re interested.  I graduated high school at 115 pounds.  I got married when I was 23 at 160 pounds. I am now 15 years married, and I am neither 115 nor 160 pounds. I would like to change that, and I have tried on and off over the years, probably like many of you.  I have no health problems other than simply being a 160 pound man in a 228 pound body.  However, my wife has Type 2 diabetes, and is…

Completely Clueless Newb Review #1: La Floridita Limited Edition Toro

Ok,a lot of guys on CigFed really know their stuff, and they are definitely worth listening to. However, there are a lot of you who, like me, read or watch a review and think, "You taste WHAT? If you say so, dude." For you, it probably hasn't been that long since you've puked up your shoes halfway through a stick because you didn't know what you were getting into, or because you hoped you could balance a nic buzz with more alcohol. I know you're out there, so after a little encouragement, I… Continue
