Stogie Guys Friday Sampler CCXXVIII

4 Mar 2011

As we have since July 2006, each Friday we’ll post a mixed bag of quick cigar news and other items of interest. Below is our latest Friday Sampler.

1) Yesterday, we summarized some of the anti-tobacco bills that are under consideration in state capitals across the country. While many federal and state politicians continue to restrict cigar rights here in the U.S., their work pales in comparison to the draconian new law that recently took effect in Honduras. The law bans smoking in most public places throughout the country—one of the world’s leading exporters of cigars—and also encourages people to report individuals who smoke inside their homes. “Families or individuals may complain to law enforcement authorities when smokers expose them to secondhand smoke in private places and family homes,” reads a clause in the law.

2) Details are emerging about Crowned Heads LLC, a new cigar company that was announced by Jon Huber and other former employees of CAO in February. Huber and his team are currently in talks with tobacco growers and factories to produce a new five-vitola blend before the end of the year. Huber says his goal is to focus on quality and balance, not volume or sales figures.

3) Inside the Industry: The Jameson Cigar Co. is releasing Santos de Miami, a box-pressed Dominican puro with a corojo wrapper. La Palina El Diario, a more affordable version of the La Palina line, is being made at the Raices Cubanas factory in Honduras and will sell for about $10 per cigar.

4) Around the Blogs: Smoking Stogie smokes a Cuban Partagas 165th Anniversario. Stogie Review reviews the Nub San Andreas Maduro. Nice Tight Ash checks out the Reinado Torpedo. Cigar Inspector inspects the Casa Magna. The top cigar on is the Tatuaje Black Corona Gorda.

5) Deal of the Week: We’ve enjoyed the Don Kiki White Label for years, and now is your chance to pick up this cigar at a deep discount: a box of 20 for just $84.99. Also available is a bundle of 20 La Unica by Fuente/Newman for $59.99. [The original deals expired, but by clicking through the email specials page you’ll find other discounted prices.]

    Thanks. We've updated the deal to reflect the new (still discounted, but not quite as much) prices.
