Stogie Guys Friday Sampler XLVII

8 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.

Tony Soprano Smoking a Cigar1. With the final episode of “The Sopranos” only two days away, many diehard fans are searching for a proper way to send off the family. As Cigar Aficionado explains, why not toast them with an official Sopranos cocktail? Drinks range from the feminine “Made Martini” and “Carmela Supreme” to the powerful “Bada-Bing” and the “Final Whack.”

2. Think fascist smoking bans in the U.S. are a pain in the ass? Just look at what our dentally-challenged cousins across the pond have to deal with. Starting July 1, smoking in London’s offices, bars, and restaurants will be illegal – no exceptions, even for the city’s 20 cigar bars. Some smoke friendly establishments are building rooftop patios, but it’s probably only a matter of time before the government bans outdoor smoking as well.

3. Around the Blogs: Cigar Fan reviews a CAO MX2. Leafy Times says Padrón is the best. Cigar Jack isn’t loving the Ashton VSG. Matt tries an A. Pontillo. Stogie Review has a Rocky Patel OSG. The Smoking Lounge reviews a Gispert Toro.

4. Deal of the Week: If you haven’t taken care of Father’s Day yet, you’d better pick up one of these samplers for pops: Powerhouse 22, Father’s Day Sampler, Super Sampler, Premium Sampler, Herf Sampler, or El Torito Sampler. All include ten or more quality smokes for under $30, so don’t blame us if you show up June 17th empty handed!

    I actually made a few of those drinks on Sunday during the show. The "Bada-Bing" is excellent.

    Speaking of "The Sopranos," anyone else completely dissatisfied by the ending (or, should I say, lack thereof)?

    […] 3) Around the Blogs: Leafy Times tries the Avalon Juke Blue. Cigar Beat reviews an Opus X. The Smoking Lounge lounges with a Rocky Patel Vintage 1990. Keepers of the Flame smokes a Macanudo Cafe Lords. Stogie Fresh has a Camacho Scorpion. Cigar Jack gives the Romeo y Julieta Short Churchill a try. Stogie Review fires up a La flor Dominicana Factory Press. 4) Deal of the Week: This week’s deal is a little different because it doesn’t just score you some good smokes… it also is charitable. Joining the Cigar Connoisseur Club by J.C. Newman Cigars gets you four great Cuesta-Rey Centro Fino Sungrown cigars and a sharp golf shirt. And in case that isn’t enough, a portion of your membership goes to the Cigar Family Charitable Foundation to build schools and health clinics in the Dominican Republic. (If you still haven’t got a gift for dad we suggest you check out last sampler’s Deal of the Week. […]
