Sunday Fiver – March 1, 2009

A fiver of cigar stories from around the Web.

(2) G.A.R. by George A. Rico is a cigar I’ve contemplated picking up several times, but Agent 10’s review over at The Cigar Spy has convinced me to give it a shot.

Ricky at Cigar Command reviewed the (3) Los Blancos Sumatra Robusto, and called it the best of the Los Blancos line.

Feature Articles

A Cigar Smoker’s Journal has a recap of Barrister Cigars’ (4) trip to Rocky Patel in Honduras. It’s a great write-up, and you can view some more photos at Shutterfly.

The Stogie Guys have a great article on how (5) cigar manufacturers should embrace the same transparency as the wine industry by revealing vintages, improving labeling, and embracing labeling.
