Stogie Guys Friday Sampler CV

20 Jun 2008

In our ongoing effort to make as entertaining and informative as possible, each Friday we’ll post a mixed bag of quick cigar news and other snippets of interest. We call ‘em Friday Samplers. Enjoy.

1) We must have missed the memo on June being Cigar Association Month. Following the establishment of Cigar Rights of America and the IPCPR’s new group to fight smoking bans and tobacco taxes we’ve been alerted to the formation of two more groups: The Association for Women Cigar Smokers will aim to facilitate and be a resource for female smokers, and the International Association of Cigar Clubs is working to protect the rights of smokers to gather in private cigar clubs.

2) In the recent Jameson cigar review, the origin of the company name was raised but couldn’t be answered. Well, Jameson chief Brad Mayo has since emailed to say that it comes from his first name, James, which he shares with his grandfather, father, and son.

3) Inside the Industry: Imperial Tobacco, the world’s fourth largest tobacco company and owner of Altadis, announced it will cut 2,440 jobs and close 6 of its 58 facilities as part of a restructuring effort. Riding the success of San Cristobal, Don Pepin is again partnering with Ashton to create a new brand called Benchmade.

4) Around the Blogs: With the help of Jon N, Keepers of the Flame continues its outstanding series on Padrón with a comparison review of the Delicias vitola. Cigar Monkey fires up a Griffin’s Piramide. Cigar Jack tries the Rocky Patel Edge Lite Torpedo. Cigar Inspector sparks a Flor de Selva Robusto.

5) Deal of the Week: This week’s deal is the best kind of all: a free cigar! A recent issue of the Robb Report offers readers a free Montecristo (Classic or White), which can be claimed here.
