Stogie Guys Friday Sampler V

11 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) “Sanctimonious killjoys are sweet on banning pleasure.” Now that’s a great headline. Unfortunately, you need a subscription to the Ottawa Citizen (they have newspapers in Canada?!) to read the rest, but since it’s about cigar bans, we think we’d probably agree.

2) Mail order cigar buyers beware: The Senate is considering a bill to ban the U.S. Postal Service from delivering cigarettes. Next up… cigars?

3) Dominican officials incinerated 7,000 boxes of counterfeits this week. They destroyed more than 100,000 false cigars including Cohiba, Montecristo, Romeo y Julieta, Davidoff, Partagas, Punch, Gloria Cubana, Macanudo and others.

4) And speaking of fake stogies… Congrats to Walt from StogieReview who gave the answer we were looking for in yesterday’s contest. He pointed out that the Cohiba only had one row of white squares while the genuine article should have two or three rows.

    Whoa!!! not a bad 1st Cuban cigar to review. This format is really a geared to a new generation of cigar smokers and captures the essence of the Cuban Cohiba profile.

    This cigar holds a special place in my humidor.
