Stogie Guys Friday Sampler VII

25 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) After successfully censoring the cigar out of Winston Churchill’s mouth, anti-smoking zealots are now setting their sights on the scourge that is cartoon smoke. At the request of one viewer who objected to two Tom & Jerry episodes, 1,500 cartoons, including The Flinstones and Scooby-Doo, are all being edited to remove scenes that “glamorize smoking.”

2) The sad passing of cigar legend Stanford J. Newman alerted us to a great deal for our readers. For an $18 membership in the JC Newman Connoisseurs Club, you get some Cuesta-Rey cigars, a golf shirt, coupons, a members-only newsletter, and more. And best of all, a portion of your membership fee goes to the Cigar Family Charitable Foundation. Good cigars and a good cause…Who can argue with that?

3) This week we reviewed the Onyx Vintage ’97, highlighting a trend we’ve noticed towards special “vintage year” cigars. But you won’t find Fuente jumping on that train. Here’s why.

4) Here’s a good deal for H. Upmann fans, and the box is perfect for hiding your cigars from the anti-smoking crowd.

5) Finally, we admit there isn’t any plausible reason why a cigar publication like ours should link to this, but we just couldn’t help ourselves. Our apologies in advance for the three minutes of your life you will never get back.

    […] 3) Well, the anti-smoking zealots have already gotten to Churchill and Tom and Jerry; it was only a matter of time before Mickey went smoke-free too. Disney’s chief executive announced this week that the company would be eliminating smoking from its films, as well as discouraging the act under its two other labels: Touchstone and Miramax. Is the best way to deal with an issue to censor it? […]
