The Cigar Nut

You all are nuts! I can’t believe that in just 2 short weeks I have received over 40 different submissions for the Achievement contest. So far there are 3 people who are fighting it out for the number 1 spot but even the person who is leading the group with 52 points isn’t even close to the 211 possible points out there. Yes you read that correct, 211 possible points in this contest – there are more than enough opportunities to win the grand prize. As a little motivation for those of you who are slacking – I will be adding a few more cigars to the prize package, an extra accessory or two and I will be giving away a few random 3-5 packs of cigars for those who participate. Just enter one submission to be included in the random drawing!

Aside from that – I wanted to include a few pictures of those who have been completing the achievements – think you can do better?? Prove it!

The Cigar Nut

Damn – its amazing how a busy week at work can completely get you off the ‘new and exciting’ info in the cigar world. If you are ever looking for something that is fun, exciting and ‘new’ just start watching the cigar manufacturers and producers and see how many creations are being made each and every day. Well – for us Americans we usually have a decently large disconnect when it comes to those cigars from the ISOM ( Island South Of Miami ), the Forbidden Fruit, the Havanas or simply put – Cuban Cigars. Say what you will – but I sure do love a good Cuban, sometimes not as much as a Nicaraguan or Honduran blend – but I always find myself gravitating to that forbidden fruit.

Running with that, I have been able to gather a list of some new ‘standard additions’ and a few ‘exclusive additions’ – now, if that damn embargo would just get lifted…

Behind The Stick:

I don’t know about you, but when I first heard the name of this cigar I instantly had visions of the Quentin Tarantino’s movie – Kill Bill. Although this cigar does share the same name, this 4.5″ by 40 ring smoke appears to have gotten its name from Bill Paley because when he first tried the cigar, it nearly killed him and the name just stuck. The KB ( Kill Bill ) is similar to the rest of the El Diario line in that they are all made in Honduras in the Raices Cubans factory and sports the Honduran Criollo ’98 double binder, Nicaraguan Corojo ’99 and Criollo ’98 filler and the beautiful Corojo ’99 Rosado wrapper grown in Honduras. Although I wish I could write paragraph after paragraph on the history – I think it would be best to just dive right into the review.
