Stogie Guys Friday Sampler No. 448

18 Sep 2015

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.

University of Miami1) Despite a two-year-old campus-wide smoking ban, smoking is still taking place at the University of Miami and the ban is “unenforced” and “unemphasized,” according to the student paper. Enforcement is supposed to take place as follows: “The Dean of Students Office said that any faculty member can inform them of an infraction, and students instructed by a faculty member to report to the office must adhere. These students then meet with Muhammad Asad, the director of the campus’s quit smoking program, and a ‘certified tobacco treatment specialist,’ according to the university website. Sanctioned students must complete the entire program with Asad.”

2) This year’s Ybor City Cigar Festival in Tampa will be held Nov. 7. The event, which has no admission charge, features numerous vendors selling cigars, beer, food, and more. Sponsors expect 10,000-15,000 visitors. For a look at last year’s festivities, check here.

3) Inside the Industry: Six exclusive cigar sizes have been announced for the Drew Estate Lounge at Corona Cigar Co.’s Sand Lake, Florida, location. The sizes are all presented in a toro format (6 x 50), with half featuring a soft-press and half a box-press. The blends include Undercrown, Liga Privada No. 9, Herrera Estelí, Natural, Tabak Especial Dulce, and Tabak Especial Negra. “The introduction of the world’s first Drew Estate Lounge has been a rousing success at Corona Cigar,” said Corona Cigar owner Jeff Borysiewicz. “We have a large contingent of diehard Drew Estate fans among our customer base and the addition of the new Drew Estate Lounge has caused quite a bit of excitement around the shop. These exciting new offerings from Drew Estate will add another dimension to the cigar smoking experience in Corona’s Drew Estate Lounge and guaranteed to excite our customers.”
