Stogie Guys Friday Sampler

14 Jul 2006

Note to our readers: In our ongoing effort to make as entertaining and reader-friendly as possible, we’ve decided every Friday to post a sampler of quick cigar news and/or any other stogie-related snippets we find interesting. These briefs should tide you over during those long weekends. We call ‘em Friday Samplers. Enjoy.

1) Cigar Envy recently posted a video of Pierre Salinger, JFK’s late press secretary, recalling how the president asked Salinger to find him 1,000 Cuban cigars the day before he signed the embargo banning Cuban goods.

2) A private collector in England this week paid £365 ($673) for a cigar butt that had been smoked by Sir Winston Churchill in 1950.

3) So you’ve become a Stogie Guy but now you want to make the jump to connoisseur? This tasting wheel (from the now inactive Cigar Jack site) will help you identify the many complex flavors that can be found in premium handmade stogies.

4) We’ve been meaning to review a cigar with a candela wrapper (a green wrapper, also called AMS or American Market Selection) but our friends at Stogie Review beat us to the punch. For more on candela wrappers, check out this January 3 article from Cigar Aficionado.

5) Finally, we’ve introduced a new item to our fantastic Stogie Guys store designed specially for the ladies. It’s definetly sweet.

    For $673, I'd buy a cigar that hasn't been smoked yet!
