Stogie Guys Friday Sampler CXXV

7 Nov 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) A branch of the American Medical Association is fuming over the prevalence of smoking in movies. After noticing that “teen-oriented summer blockbusters, including Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, and The Dark Knight, featured cigar smoking,” the group concluded approximately half of all G, PG, or PG-13 movies feature smoking.

2) Many thanks to our readers for making October our busiest month ever! received over 200,000 page views as a record number of readers stopped by.

3) Inside the Industry: Miami Cigar & Co. is now the sole distributor of all United Tobacco products, including the highly popular 601 and Cubao lines. General Cigar President and CEO Daniel Núñez will be stepping down in April with Dan Carr replacing the veteran cigar maker. Villiger is introducing its first handmade cigar, the Villiger 1888.

4) Around the Blogs: Keepers of the Flame lights up a Fuente Don Carlos Presidente. Velvet Cigar smokes a Perdomo Champagne 10th Anniversary. Cigar Jack reviews an Oliva Serie O. Matt tries the 601 Oscuro. Cigar Spy observes the Rocky Patel Sun Grown.

5) Deal of the Week: This “Eight Horsemen Sampler” features eight torpedoes for the bargain price of $19.99. Included are pricey smokes such as the Graycliff 1666, the Padilla Obsidian, Rocky Patel Connecticut, and CAO Black—any three of which could easily cost more than the entire sampler. Pick yours up today here.
