My Week (In Smoking) In Review - 09/24/13

Another week, another set of reviews - all newer cigars to the marketplace.  Again, I emphasize how important and valuable it is to frequent your local B&M.  Not only are you supporting local, small businesses, but you never know who you will run into - two of this week's cigars were given to me by reps or owners who were in my local shop and offered me the opportunity to try their cigars.  Additionally, two of the others were put aside for me because my tobacconist knew I'd want to try…

My Week (In Smoking) In Review - 09/17/13

I apologize that my blogs have been becoming increasingly infrequent, but with some strict deadlines at work and a 5-month old at home, I just haven't had the time to sit down and smoke as much as I'd like - much less share my musings on what I've smoked.  In fact, I think there was a stretch of almost 10 days from late August through the first week of September where I just flat out didn't smoke a cigar.  Alas (who says that?), I have been able to partake in a few smokes over the past week…
