My Week (In Smoking) In Review - 07/30/13

Another slow week in the cigar enjoyment world for me as I only indulged in 4 different cigars this week, but it was 4 quality cigars.  One cigar that I did smoke, but didn't list was a Cortez Connecticut Corona from the Cortez Cigar Company based out of Shrewsbury, NJ.  Its been a busy month for weddings, and Saturday we went to our friends' wedding where Cortez was rolling fresh cigars so I picked up one of their Conny Coronas and…

My Week (In Smoking) In Review - 07/23/13

I've been going through a really good stretch over the past few months - despite being a new, first time father, I've had enough free time to enjoy at least 5 cigars a week, and typically many more.  Unfortunately, a streak of good luck, good weather and free time came to an end this week as I was only able to get out 3 times this week.  (Side note - this isn't completely true.  I know for a fact that I smoked a Herrera Esteli Lonsdale Club and a Camacho Triple Maduro Robusto at the very…

My Week (In Smoking) In Review - 07/16/13

Back with another Week in Review.  The rest of the CigarFed crew is out in Vegas for the show, but I'm here holding down the fort this year so I've tried to pull out a mix of cigars that are new to me coupled with some that are really some favorites of mine.  Let's get into it.

My Week (In Smoking) In Review - 07/9/13

I apologize for not giving a "Week in Review" last week.  I was in Springfield, MO a couple of weeks ago for work and it really impacted my smoking time.  I was actually supposed to go to one of my favorite shops - Just For Him - for the anniversary of their Torcido Cigar line, but, unfortunately, work just consumed me and I didn't even get the chance to do that. …

My Week (In Smoking) In Review - 06/25/13

Been a busy week for me in terms of cigar smoking and life, and the week ahead doesn't get much easier.  I'm writing this blog entry from 36,000 feet in the air as I journey to Springfield, Missouri for a bit of work, and potentially Just For Him Shop's 1 year celebration of Twisted Cigars.  I imagine my smoke intake this week will be minimal as I'm really stuck in…

My Week (In Smoking) In Review - 06/18/13

Was a great week for me in terms of smoking!  The past few weeks, I've only gotten in about 5 smokes a week, but this week the weather, my schedule, and Father's Day all produced a fantastic week of smoking and I got to enjoy 8 great smokes!  Lots to discuss, so let's dive right in:

Another week and several more cigars smoked!  This week actually was my birthday week, and while the weather and a busy schedule kept me from really going crazy, I did pull out a few special sticks to enjoy.  Here is a quick take on each - let me know your thoughts:

My Week (In Smoking) In Review - 06/04/13

If you've read any of my previous "reviews", notably the MUWAT Kentucky Fire Cured Fat Molly from a few weeks back, you'll know I'm not a reviewer.  However, like any cigar smoker, I have opinions and I don't mind sharing them so I figured I'd attempt to start a semi-regular post detailing what I've smoked over the past weeks and what my thoughts were on the cigar(s). …

[Contest] Inception - The Contest to Define a Contest!

One of the things that we're actively trying to do here at Cigar Federation is to draw new users to the site and increase discourse on the forums.  We've been working on lots of different ideas for how to do this - and you'll see some of those in the coming days, weeks and months.

Review: MUWAT Kentucky Fire Cured Fat Molly

Last weekend, I was lucky enough to attend the New Jersey Cigar Festival sponsored by Barrister Cigars at the Park Avenue Club in Florham Park, NJ.  The event was hugely successful and provided some great experiences with some great people. Going in, I had known that my old buddy …
