Who’s Herfin’ And What’s Smokin’ 10/5/07

Heed the sage words of Brian!Here again, is the latest installment of news from the internet cigar world. It’s been a very busy week, I recommend grabbing a cold one out of the fridge and lighting up something with “presidente” or a “gigante” in the name for this edition. You’ll be here for a while!

Cigar Reviews

In Other News…
And of course, Heather Waibel’s much anticipated online cigar shop Fumeé World is now open for business. Make sure you check it out. I’ve had a look around it, and I was pleased that it’s designed with the true cigar enthusiast in mind. While most online retailers generally organize cigars only by Manufacturer and then by line, Fumeé World allows you to search by wrapper leaf, by country of origin, by size and even by price. And to top it all off, the site even allows you to combine all these aspects on an advanced search page.

Oh yeah, and one other tip: Before you head over to Fumeé World, stop by The Stogie Review before you head over, they have a 15% off coupon code you can use for your purchase!

And Cigar Jack keeps the cigar giveaway insanity alive by offering you a chance to win an entire box of Olor Del Cibao Cuban Seed Churchills! Madness I say! If you want to know whether or not it’s worth entering, check out my review, or his review of the line.

The Week in Brian
Having recovered from a mild bug and an abundance of work, I contributed my normal Wednesday review to The Stogie Review. On tap this week? The new Ashton San Cristobal Guajiro. The verdict? It’s one you should try. Check out the review for more information.

I thought it was going to be another quiet week, but then all hell broke loose in at the condo’s post office. My good friend Justin from CigarLive (also onetime reviewer at the Stogie Review) bombed me with a beautiful, shiny silver Stinky Ashtray. If you don’t have one already, consider getting one, it’s essential herf gear.

And if that weren’t enough excitement, Mark Neff, the man with the plan over at Cigarmony (Viva la puck!) sent me a fantastic prize for entering a contest to name his brand new cigar lounge and all-around man-room. The winning entry? The Ash Hole. In addition to sending a fine selection of premium smokes, he made my day and sent me another puck. (I was crossing my fingers that it would be a part of the prize!)

Cigarmony Contest Winnings

Contest winnings, thanks Mark!

Speaking of the Ash Hole, at my own peril, I just checked for a the existence of a website with that name. (You never know what you might find with a name like that!) Well anyway, a bit of exploration resulted in my discovery of a brand new smoking apparatus that transforms your empty beer bottle into an ash tray! Unfortunately, from the look of it, it wouldn’t do cigar smokers much good, but if you enjoy the cigar’s smaller, more widely accepted cousin the cigarette, you might want to check it out.
