Stogie Guys Friday Sampler CXXIII

24 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) If you’ll be in the Tampa area on November 15, swing by historic Ybor City to check out the 10th annual Cigar Heritage Festival. The event, which has grown tremendously through the years, has no admission fee (donations are accepted), sales by numerous cigar makers, as well as food, drink, and games.

2) The Heartland Institute has found another reason why Pennsylvania’s outright smoking ban on state-owned college campuses is misguided. According to Legislative Specialist John Nothdurft in the USA Today, “the ban will force hundreds of students, many of whom don’t have cars, to hike outside the relative safety of a college campus to partake in the legal act of smoking.”

3) Inside the Industry: Famous Smoke Shop’s “Cigar Monster” daily deals are now available via text message to your mobile phone. Oliva introduced the new Serie V Maduro, a pyramid with a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper and Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos. CAO will be providing its America cigars for the band Hinder’s Las Vegas record release party.

4) Around the Blogs: Cigar Jack fires up a Château Real Maduro. Her Humidor smokes a Los Blancos Criollo. Next Generation reviews a Perdomo En Vidrio. Keepers of the Flame lights up a Don Pepin Garcia Black Perla.

5) Deal of the Week: General Cigars is offering a three-pack of its new Macanudo 1968 for just $7.95. That’s about the normal price of just one cigar from the new blend. Take advantage of their offer at
