My publicist and agent are telling me I need to cross market and build a larger fan base outside of the norm and do things exceptionally well and when I told them that the only thing tying all my diverse interests together was me they told me what about my cigar smoking? Wine drinking? My horrible flirtations online and offline! Got me thinking though, because they asked if some of my characters smoke and drink. All my characters drink...and as of…See More

Cigar Review: Don Cervantes Masterpiece Platinum

I lit up the Don Cervantes Masterpiece Platinum, a maduro wrapped cigar that has been fermented for almost a year and aged another 7-10 years (depending on variety of breed within the cigar) before rolling.The proper care of the tobacco makes a huge difference in all aspects ofthe cigar and it’s blatantly evident in the Masterpiece Platinum. Uponlighting the cigar, I noticed instantly pleasant aromas of tobacco andspice that welcomed themselves without being overly aggressive. The EnTubado…See More

bucking a trend

The latest slew of cigars I've smoked have all been the same. Don Cervantes, Tatuaje, Padron and a Brickhouse thrown in for good measure. But then Joe Barron of Grants Tobacconist turned me onto Jose Fuego's Origen cigars and then suggested I try the CAO La Traviata Maduro.The problem with the last two is that they don't qualify for the blog but they're both very tasty, such that I've gone back and picked up more of them. Hell, even Brickhouse doesn't qualify based alone on price. If I were…See More

Interview with Eric Newman of JC Newman Cigars

Posted on July 28, 2010 at 3:13pm 0 Comments

My first foray into the JC Newman world of cigars was with the Cuesta Rey Centenario No 60 Torpedo. This maduro uses a Connecticut broadleaf to impart a ton of creamy, smooth flavor in the Dominican made cigar that's just absolutely

beautiful. At around $6 a stick, it's a value for those looking to try something

different.

Then I moved to California and in 2005 I discovered Cuesta Rey cigars at a cigar tasting in a shop no longer around. The Centro Fino was being pushed to…
