I received the UnderCrown Manifesto while attending a Drew Estate event in Chicago. I was really looking forward to lighting this up since acquiring. It sat in my humidor for about a month and today, Saturday, I pulled it out. The Manifesto is pegged as an event cigar – side note this can’t be purchased…… Read More UnderCrown Manifesto Review
The weather in Chicago appears to be taking a turn for the better! After a long hibernation it’s time to come out and enjoy the outdoors. To celebrate the occasion I toasted a T52 Double Corona. This was one of the sticks sent directly to me from Drew Estate. More specifically this was one that… Read More Liga Privada T52
The question…can you bring a dead Boveda pack to life? Can the stiff, brown, enveloped sized humidity marvel rise again? It appears you can… The black market cigar talkers occasionally discuss this money saving ability, but no-one says how. Boveda doesn’t want you to know the secret, but I do! Whats the best way to… Read More Resurrecting a Boveda Pack
Last night was a very successful evening at Updown. For starters they had the La Nox so I can cross that one off the list of “must try.” To take home, I purchased one of the new Herrera Esteli TAA which they just got in. Big thanks to my buddy Izzy for reminding me to ask… Read More UPDOWN Part II
Tonight I’m heading to Updown with my cousin. Updown is located in Chicago’s Old Town. I’m hoping they still have the La Nox, because if they do…I’m firing that beast up and probably buying a few to take home with me. Since I’ve been building this one up a lot, mentally and with friends, I’ll do… Read More UPDOWN CIGAR
Humidors are like people. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. And just like people, humidors can be temperamental so they need some TLC. Any cigar expert or newbie who has a humidor can attest to the “ups and downs” of maintenance. Get it? Ups and Downs like the humidity… Humidity: Something to sweat… Read More The World of Humidors
This is a different post. Something I don’t see anyone doing, so…I’ll address the elephant in the room. Cigars and Health. The question isn’t how healthy are cigars for you, although I’m sure you can argue they’re therapeutic…but in reality the question is how unhealthy are they? I’ve done some research and frankly there isn’t much out… Read More Cigars & Health…Am I smoking too much?
When I think of Cigar reviewers, a few names come to mind immediately. One in particular who’s been my go-to. I’m not sure if a single reviewer can make or break a stick, but it provides some entertainment along with some insight. I’m a big fan of Youtube reviews so I’ll discuss some with video and… Read More Cigar Reviewers…Reviewed!
As most of you know there are only 2 options when buying cigars. At a local shop/lounge or online. Buying in Store: The benefits of buying in store are that you get to see, smell and touch what you’re buying. Depending on the place the workers can be extremely helpful. I’ve been fortunate to meet a… Read More Buying Cigars…
The La Nox just speaks to me…I first encountered this cigar in Cleveland while I was visiting family last Christmas. La Nox means “The Night”. The box really struck me along with the color combination. The text is derived from Vincent van Gogh’s signature. This is a limited production cigar that apparently tastes as good as it looks.… Read More Stick I want to Try – LFD La Nox
