Stogie Guys Friday Sampler LXXXVIII

21 Mar 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.

Troops1) With the Iraq War entering its sixth year this week, now is another great time for cigar enthusiasts to think about sending a few spare sticks to the soldiers in the Middle East. One law enforcement official is doing his part: Instead of destroying seized counterfeit Cubans, as is protocol, a Michigan sheriff has decided to send them to overseas troops. A local shipping company has graciously offered its services to safely deliver the goods.

2) Jameson Cigar Co., a new operation, is introducing itself with a sweet deal: two cigars and a T-shirt for just the cost of shipping ($6). You can sign up for the offer here.

3) Around the Blogs: Cigar Jack reminds us to accept no ashtray substitutes. Cigar Inspector lights up an Opus X Robusto. Keepers of the Flame provides an aging report on the Camacho Havana Monarca. Cigar Monkey tries the Emilio Reyes Gold.

4) Deal of the Week: Spring is here and that means one thing: golf season. This Golf Sampler includes two cigars each from Padrón, Hoyo de Monterrey, H. Upmann, and three other brands. You also get a lighter, cutter, and some golf tees. Get yours here.

    Sorry to hear that. I recently got the two cigars and plan to smoke them after a little humidor time, so I'll let you know what I think.

    Yikes. Now I feel like I owe you an extra Friday Sampler item.

    How about this: In response to the Pennsylvania legislature's calls for a smoking ban, a group of Harrisburg cigar and cigarette smokers gathered at a local hotel on Tuesday to celebrate what they're calling "smoke freedom day." You can read the story and watch the video here.

    The Jameson offer is back up – at least it was for me. Just wish they provided a little more information about the cigars though.

    Sorry about the special being taken down, it was only intended to run for a week. However, I've had several requests to continue it and have decided to do so through this weekend. I don't want anybody to get left out!

    Is there a specific place to send the cigars? What's the best way to get 'em there?
