Stogie Guys Friday Sampler IV

4 Aug 2006

In our ongoing effort to make as entertaining and reader-friendly as possible, each Friday we’ll post a sampler of quick cigar news and stogie-related snippets to tide you over for the weekend. We call ‘em Friday Samplers. Enjoy.

1) Fuente only makes the Don Carlos line every 30 years, so when these special edition cigars hit the stores in October, don’t be shy about grabbing yours. Also, be on the lookout for Perdomo’s Lot 23 release featuring tobacco from the choicest, most furtile land at a very resonable four to five dollars a stick.

2) In Tuesday’s post, we discussed Fidel Castro’s failing health and its implications on Cuban economics and politics. In 1994, Cigar Aficionado conducted a rare and interesting interview with the dictator about cigars, the trade embargo, and Cuba’s future.

3) We tell you all the time about how smoking bans are just plain wrong, but here’s one reason we neglected: They take money away from charities. And perhaps more importantly, smoking bans are now targeting that classic American institution, the strip club.

4) Jeff at Cigar Envy put together a five part series on the best “Made in America” cigars. Check it out and remember: “Uncle Sam wants YOU to smoke a cigar!”

5) Ever wonder what goes into making a cigar? Here’s a three minute version, set to a latin beat.

    You think CA could have asked Castro a few more hard-hitting questions instead of lobbing him softballs all interview? You know, like his sub-par human rights record?
