Stogie Guys Friday Sampler LXXXIV

22 Feb 2008

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.

Camacho 101) Camacho Cigars announced yesterday the release of a new line: the Camacho Corojo 10th Anniversary, a celebration of a decade of growing “the world’s only authentic corojo tobacco.” The blend will be offered in four sizes, sell in the $10.50 to $12.75 range, and hit retailers on March 28.

2) Don’t forget to RSVP for our upcoming DC Stogie Guys Smoke Out on Sunday, March 9 at 4pm. The event will feature free cigars plus giveaways all provided by Cuban Crafters. RSVP here.

3) Havana’s tenth annual Habanos Festival – a showcase of Cuban distributors, specialists, and enthusiasts – kicks off on Monday and runs through the rest of the week. New cigars are expected to be introduced, including the Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure Especial and the H. Upmann Magnum 50.

4) Around the Blogs: Stogie Review reviews a Nub 460. Velvet Cigar smokes a King Conch Maduro. Cigar Inspector inspects a Fuente Cuban Classic. Stogie Fresh smokes a Tatuaje Reserva J21. Cigar Jack lights up a Bobalu Wedge.

5) Deal of the Week: Presidents Day may have come and gone, but at least for the moment this “Presidents Day Sampler” is still available. The sampler features 20 cigars including five of the 4 1/2 stogie-rated 601 Green by Don Pepin Garcia and five of the Rocky Patel Edge, all for just $59.99. Grab yours here.

    Just so you know, it's spelled "Bobalu."

    If you haven't already, you guys should write a column about how to finagle a visit to Cuba. For "journalistic" purposes, of course! Not that I would ever purchase cigars while in Cuba, obviously. I'd just be there to document…umm…the foliage.

    I wrote a short piece on tips for Americans traveling to Cuba last March. You can read it here:

    Awesome, thanks. Great site, by the way. I just discovered it yesterday, and I'm really digging it. Keep up the good work!

    Ha. There's a great piece in the March issue of Esquire about a guy going down to Cuba, followed by a good story by David Simon, the creator of HBO show "The Wire."
