Stogie Guys Friday Sampler CXXII

17 Oct 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) Edie Adams, perhaps best known as the longtime spokeswoman for Muriel Cigars, died at 81 yesterday. While we can’t recommend the Altadis-owned, machine-made sticks she peddled for nearly 20 years, we can certainly suggest you check out one of her old commercials.

2) After Atlantic City officials announced they would postpone a city-wide smoking ban for one year due to economic concerns, the draconian law went into effect anyways on Wednesday. Apparently, much to the dismay of those who depend on tourism revenue, “procedural delays” kept the city council from approving the ban’s suspension. Now everything is in the hands of Mayor Scott Evans.

3) Inside the Industry: Padrón plans to offer new five-cigar samplers for under $30, each including one 1964 Anniversary Series. EO Cigars’ second release of Mi Barrio has been pushed back to November.

4) Around the Blogs: Keepers of the Flame lights up a Don Pepin Cuban Classic. Cigar Jack smokes an Alec Bradley Trilogy Native Cameroon. Stogie Review reviews an El Rico Habano Maduro. Cigar Command fires up an Oliva Serie O Maduro.

5) Deal of the Week: This “Triple Play Sampler” includes fifteen cigars from three big names: Gurkha, Alec Bradley, and EO Brands (made by Don Pepin). Included are five of the fantastic 601 cigars (at least one of each of the four lines), all for just $45 ($3 per stick). Get yours here.

    I love those old cigar ads, and that one's no exception. It's laughably fantastic.

    This one from the 70s–featuring a Santana song, no less–is another winner.
