Stogie Guys Friday Sampler CXC

21 May 2010

As we have since July 2006, each Friday we’ll post a mixed bag of quick cigar news and other items of interest. We call ‘em Friday Samplers. Enjoy.

No Smoking1) With most of the country’s bars, restaurants, and workplaces regulated by prohibitive smoking bans, anti-tobacco activists are setting their sights on the great outdoors. An Albuquerque woman was recently sued—albeit unsuccessfully—for smoking in her own backyard. Her neighbor argued that her cigarettes are a health hazard. Meanwhile, in suburban Chicago, Kane County lawmakers are mulling the legality of an outdoor ban for residential neighborhoods. Illinois already has a restrictive statewide ban that criminalizes  smoking in indoor “public” spaces, enacted in 2008.

2) Inside the Industry: Perdomo is introducing a new value smoke called “Nick’s Sticks Little Havana Blend” that will come in Connecticut, Maduro, and Sun Grown varieties. Reyes Family Cigars has planted its first tobacco in Danlí, Honduras, on 50 acres of land. Macanudo is adding a large smoke to its Gold line which will be called the Gold Brick (6 x 60).

3) Around the BlogsSmoking Stogie blind reviews a La Flor Dominicana Air Bender. Cigar Inspector inspects a Cubao Maduro. Nice Tight Ash checks out the Nestor Miranda 1989. Stogie Fresh smokes the La Aurora 107. Tiki Bar kicks back with a Camacho Liberty 2009. Keepers of the Flame fires up a Benji Menendez Masters Series. The Cigar Spy sparks a Gran Habano Corojo.

4) Deal of the Week: Cuban Crafters is having a Weekend Cigar Blowout. They’ve got deals on our favorites like the Cupido Tuxedo and the 1959 Miami Medina. The best bargain is a box of 25 La Carolinas for just $50. Grab yours here.

    I still can't believe that someone at Perdomo didn't mention the interesting topic of smoking, "Nick's Stick." Now careful how you say that and don't mumble, because it might sound like a four letter word that begins with a 'D'.

    Even if you don't mumble, who wants to be smoking another dudes "stick" anyways. LOL

    Maybe it's just me, but I find that hilarious.

    You're right…this is going to cause tons of guffaws and bad-taste jokes at cigar shops across the country when "Nick's Stick" arrives in stores. Sometimes the marketing people need to run these things by a focus group of properly debauched guys before releasing them on the world!
