Stogie Guys Friday Sampler XIX

17 Nov 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) We’re always looking for ways to improve your experience. And to that end we recently added a “Recommended Reading” page that has a running list of regularly updated articles on cigars and life recommended by the Stogie Guys. To see the latest updates, click the Recommended Reading link found on the top left of every page, and if you have an article you think we should include, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

2) We mentioned it in last week’s sampler, but it’s so big we had to say it again. Tomorrow in Tampa’s Ybor city,Wally Reyes will attempt to wrestle the Guinness Book of World Records “world’s largest cigar” record away from Cuba by rolling a 100 foot long cigar – surpassing the 67 foot Havanan-rolled giant by 50 percent. And we thought that this six foot Davidoff cigar was gigantic!

3) We’ve written articles before on the dangers and advantages of using online cigar auction sites. Now we’ve found a special unadvertised “private auction” over at Cigar Bid so you can test your skills. We haven’t tried the Gurkha Regents yet, so we can’t really recommend them, but we do hear good things. Have at it here.

4) For some reason this weekend seems like a busy time for cigar events. In our area we’ve noticed events from Zino, CAO, and La Aurora. Since Stogie Guys are all across the country, we don’t have the space to list all the fantastic events that are coming up, but we can point you to the most complete list we’ve found. We strongly recommend attending such events where you can meet fellow stogie smokers, learn about your favorite brands, and score free cigars.

5) Finally, we’ve got another special deal you probably won’t find anywhere else. For just ten bucks ($9.95 to be exact), you get eight cigars including six premium cigars from C.A.O., Toraño, Cusano, Ghurka, Padron, and La Gloria Cubana. Even if you just throw away the two Thompson brand cigars this is a great deal (of course, we haven’t tried them yet, so they may just be fantastic too).

    The article says they are planning on cutting it up into one foot pieces which are being sold for charity

    […] 5) A few months ago we told you about this fantastic deal from Thompson where you get eight cigars for just ten dollars. Since then ours arrived in the mail and we were reminded just what a great deal it is, with top brands like CAO, Toraño, Cusano, Ghurka, Padron, and La Gloria Cubana. Order yours here. […]
