In our ongoing effort to make StogieGuys.com 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.
1. We wholeheartedly encourage private property owners to find ways around government-imposed smoking bans, and this has got to be the most creative way yet. A bar in England is transforming itself into an official embassy for a tiny Caribbean island, rendering it immune to many intrusive U.K. laws – including a nationwide smoking ban. But that’s not even the best part. The pub will also be exempt from England’s high taxes on alcoholic beverages, and therefore able to sell drinks at rock-bottom prices.
2. Think Disney World is just for kids? Think again. While the young ones play with Mickey, Goofy, and Donald Duck, now you can enjoy a fine cigar and a cocktail at Sosa Cigars – right in the heart of the park. Now that’s what we call the Magic Kingdom!
3. Around the Blogs: Keepers of the Flame has a Sabor Cubano Petite Torpedo. Stogie Review reviews the Troya X-TRA No. 54. Cigar Jack fires up an Oliva Serie G Maduro Torpedo. Stogie Fresh lights up an Avalon Honeyboy Edwards. The Smoking Lounge smokes a Partagas Lonsdale. Cigar Beat goes with the Cu-Avana Maduro Robusto.
4. Deal of the Week: We’re not gonna say that today’s deal is the best bargain we’ve ever come across (for some of those, check out these samplers), but you’ll have trouble finding a better group of cigars. In fact, some of the smokes in this Padrón sampler are nearly impossible to find at all. With three of the five stogie-rated Serie 1926s, three 1964 Anniversary Series cigars, and two plain Padróns, we’re sure you won’t be disappointed. Click here to get yours in Natural or Maduro.
