The Cigar Nut

I know IPCPR is right around the corner and everyone is going to be watching the coverage and not very interested in seeing normal old reviews so I will be linking to a few other sites on some of the live coverage and sitting at home, wishing and dreaming I was there. I am also on vacation from work next week, so it gives me a chance to knock out a few more reviews and get caught up.

Speaking of catching up – be sure to enter into the Achievements Contest ending Saturday, August 27th 2011. Andy K is leading the pack but there are more than enough Achievements and time for anyone to win! The prizes so far includes about 30 cigars from my personal stash and more than likely will have a few more added here shortly.

Well – short sweet and to the point! Have a great weekend and I’ll get back to you all after IPCPR!

Strength: Medium – Full
Price: ~ $18.50

Behind The Stick:

My fault on the massive delay for this review – Smoke Inn had released these smokes in celebration of their 15th anniversary of being in business. Smoke Inn has been a South Florida staple in the cigar world for years, and aside from there excellent customer service, huge selection and good prices they have also been releasing some very exciting and new products to the market under there umbrella. This release in specific though is the Padon 1964-SI which has been produced in a 60 ring gauge, is actually the same blend as normal 1964′s ( natural and maduro ) but that the wrapper to ratio change ( ring gauge ) has created a ‘very unique smoke and taste’. These cigars will be offered in 5 packs and 15 count boxes.

If your into the whats ‘down the road’, Smoke Inn will be releasing 4 different ‘special’ cigars – the Tatuaje Anarchy in 2010, the Padron in early 2011, the My Father El Hijo in summer of 2011 and a Fuente to wrap things up! Without any more of a delay – into the review we go!

The Cigar Nut

Dummy in Distress…

Well, Noob followers, when last we were with the Noob, she was racing down the Road to Pro, intent on finding the Cigaar Bizaar without further distraction. You see, she had, shall we say, “acquired” a rather hefty load of cigars in the night from a traveling merchant. At first delighted, she was now gravely concerned, for the only thing she had to keep her new purchases in was a worn burlap sack. She knew from her chance encounter with the Cigar Nut that this was not the most economical container for her cigars, and that keeping them this way would most certainly ruin them.

The Cigar Nut

Size: 5 x 50 ( Robusto )
Wrapper: Connecticut Corojo
Binder and Filler: Connecticut Broadleaf, Dominican, Honduran and Nicaraguan
Strength: Medium
Price: ~ $6.50

Behind The Stick:

One of the first cigars I ever smoked was a Punch and since then the line itself has done nothing but reinforce the enjoyment I get from them – well, except for the occasional dud that gets through – and even then I find some excuse to overlook the issue and end up purchasing more! The Rare Corojo in specific has been a borderline ‘go to cigar’ for me, not to light but not too dark, not too linear but not overly complex – so when I heard that they were releasing a 10th Anniversary edition of the blend I felt it necessary to acquire some as soon as possible.

There has been a little skuttle butt going around that the cigar is actually void of all Corojo components and only carries the name rather than the specific leafs – I personally have no clue but have heard good arguments on each side of the table. Without diving too far into the drama of that discussion – lets get on with the review!

Happy 4th of July!

Can you imagine, 235 years ago today on July 4th, 1776 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania the Declaration of Independence was signed by the Continental Congress, The United States of America gained there independence.

At the time of the signing the US consisted of 13 colonies under the rule of England’s King George III. There was growing unrest in the colonies concerning the taxes that had to be paid to England. This was commonly referred to as “Taxation without Representation” as the colonists did not have any representation in the English Parliament and had no say in what went on. As the unrest grew in the colonies, King George sent extra troops to help control any rebellion. In 1774 the 13 colonies sent delegates to Philadelphia Pennsylvania to form the First Continental Congress. The delegates were unhappy with England, but were not yet ready to declare war.
