Stogie Guys Friday Sampler No. 356

1 Nov 2013

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.

NYC1) New York City is in the process of raising the age minimum for tobacco products by three years, effectively implementing the toughest tobacco sale regulations of any major city in the U.S. “The legal age for buying tobacco—including cigarettes, electronic cigarettes, cigars, and cigarillos—will rise to 21, from 18, under a bill adopted by the City Council and which Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg has said he would sign,” reported the New York Times on Wednesday. The law will go into effect six months after the bill is signed. “The proposal provoked some protest among people who pointed out that New Yorkers under 21 can drive, vote, and fight in wars, and should be considered mature enough to decide whether to buy cigarettes.”

2) Cigar Rights of America is giving you another great way to support the organization that helps protect cigar smokers from tobacco taxes, bans, and regulations. A new CRA limited edition ten-pack is now on sale at Great American Cigar Shops, and it’s available only to current CRA members. The sampler features ten exclusive cigars—each either a unique size or blend—from ten of the world’s best brands, including Drew Estate’s Liga Privada No. 9, La Aroma de Cuba, La Flor Dominicana, Rocky Patel, Tatuaje, E.P. Carrillo, and Opus X.

3) Around the Blogs: Cigar Inspector inspects the Padrón 3000 Maduro. Stogie Review reviews the Henry Clay. Nice Tight Ash checks out the Allure Habano. Stogie Fresh smokes the The Griffin’s Special Edition 2012.

4) Deal of the Week: Here’s a sampler with 5 quality cigars for just $24. Included is the Vega Fina Robusto, CAO MX2 Toro, PDR 1878 Natural Robusto, Rocky Patel Edge Maduro Torpedo, and  Montecristo Classic Toro.
