Stogie Guys Friday Sampler XXV

5 Jan 2007

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) Well, it’s finally here. No, I’m not talking about the New Year…I’m talking about Washington’s fascist smoking ban. Passed one year ago by the DC Council, all bars and nightclubs were indefinitely coerced into prohibiting smoking starting January 2, 2007. As Washingtonians, the founding Stogie Guys are particularly saddened by this news. Fortunately, though, there are places in this country that still hold freedom of choice dear. So we’ll be doing exactly what the DC business owners feared – taking our business to Virginia.

2) Blended in the style of a flavorful yet mild Cuban, the highly anticipated Tatuaje Havana VI line finally hit stores this week. Pete Johnson created the Nicaraguan puro for Tatuaje, one of the hottest boutique brands in the U.S. While we haven’t gotten our hands on any of these sticks yet, we’re hearing good things. You can look up a local retailer here.

3) With the harshest days of winter on the horizon, we thought this would be a great time to point out that your humidors may require some special attention in order to function properly until spring. As such, we highly recommend you perform the salt calibration test and check out Stogie Review’s tips on “Winterizing Your Humidor.”

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't DC supposed to be the city where freedom is enshrined? Quite an example Washingtonians have set for the rest of us…

    I know Drapers in DC carries a few Tatuajes which I have sampled. I wonder if they will have this new line in stock as well.

    I smoked a Tatuaje Unicos(torpedo) a couple of weekends ago when my Pats sealed the division. It is everything they- 5 stogies. A premium smoke at not an outrageous price- I paid $11.

    As far as humidor calibration, I go with the Boveda Humidipak and do not worry. The paks will not only add moisture, but will remove it if necessary- always perfect. I simply replace quarterly. Is it any wonder the new CAO Vision ships with the packets and Fuente does as well.
