Stogie Guys Friday Sampler XLVI

1 Jun 2007

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

Rob Reiner1. The Beverly Hills City Council on Tuesday unanimously gave preliminary approval for a Draconian smoking ban on outdoor sections of bars and restaurants. The city has already been covered by California’s indoor ban since 1998, but apparently even that’s too much freedom for posh Hollywood elitists. No word yet on what role Rob Reiner played to advance the outrageous regulation.

2. Those freedom-hating bureaucrats at the World Health Organization are calling for a worldwide ban on indoor smoking. As our friends at To The People note, despite the WHO’s current claims, this is just a step towards their ultimate goal: total global tobacco prohibition.

Cigar Cutter3. Around the Blogs: Cigar Jack reviews an elusive Fuente Anejo. Stogie Fresh reviews the Toraño Tribute 2003. Stogie Review got a face lift. Keepers of the Flame had a Saint Luis Rey Series G. StogieCast tries the CAO Gold. Terry smokes a La Aroma de Cuba. Velvet Cigar reviews a Gurkha Warlord. [Editor’s note: Around the Blogs is our new weekly recap of other cigar blogs.]

4. Cigar Aficionado has a video on the proper way to cut a cigar. Of course, you already know that.

5. Deal of the Week: If you haven’t taken care of you Father’s Day gift yet, you’ll want to scoop this up. For $29.95 you get 12 premium smokes (including Padrón, Hoyo, Cusano, Perdomo, Puros Indios, Toraño, Felipe Gregoria, Partagas, La Gloria Cubana, and Rocky Patel), a travel case, and hat.

    I concur. Around the Blogs will save me from navigating a bunch of other sites. I sincerely hope you make it a permanent feature in your Friday Samplers.
