Stogie Guys Friday Sampler LVIII

24 Aug 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.

1) Enjoy our weekend Quick Smokes? Wish you could post one of your own? Well, here’s your chance: is still accepting Guest Quick Smokes. Just send us an email with a short description of the cigar (please include its full name and dimensions) and your rating of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell,” and we’ll consider posting it. You can increase your chances of publication by choosing a cigar that hasn’t already been a Quick Smoke or the subject of a full review. Please remember we’re not looking for essays; just a short paragraph on your impressions. Here are a few good examples of a Macanudo, a Punch, and a Hoyo.

Maduro Deal2) If you enjoyed Wednesday’s interview with baseball legend turned cigar manufacturer Luis Tiant, chances are you’ll get a kick out of Cigar Aficionado’s recent piece on Mets general manager Omar Minaya. He talks about trying to please crazy New Yorkers and his affinity for Arturo Fuentes and La Auroras.

3) Around the Blogs: Keepers of the Flame lights up a Camacho Corojo 11/18. Cigar Beat reviews a Partagas Black Bravo. Cigar Monkey puffs on a Macanudo Prince Phillip. Cigar Inspector inspects a PadrÏŒn Maduro 3000. Velvet Cigar goes with the Gurkha Expedition 1887. Cigar Jack torches up a Cusano P1.

4) Deal of the Week: This special ends today at midnight, so waste no time! Replacement Deal: Nine cigar “Woodstock Sampler” for just $25. Get yours here.

    Earlier this week, I noted that I was going to try to follow up on Patrick's stellar review of Ybor City Handmades. Well, I did get the chance to stop by King Corona and smoke one. I'd say it is, hands down, the best cheap cigar I've smoked, one that could easily pass for a $10 stick. I picked up a handful and can't wait to smoke more.

    I'm going to have to start writing my best reviews earlier in the week for you guys to link to. 🙂 You always seem to link to something flavored or cheap.
