“Smoked Up” No.79

The past week has been one of the most challenging ones I have had in a long time. With my good friend still in a medically induced coma over in New Orleans, she has be on my mind a great bit.  As well as me juggling four major projects at work at one time; this week […]

“Smoked Up” No.24

Summer is here in the deep south!! Well, not until the 21st, but its hotter than blue blazes here! Most days last week were 90°+ with a heat index in the area of 105°. With that being said, my cigar time has been cut down to late evening if possible. My corneal ulcer cleared up on Saturday. […]

J. Fuego Origen (Lancero)

When I first heard that the Origen would be released in a lancero I got pretty excited. I’m a sucker for lanceros, and considering my prior experience with the Origen Toro I figured the new vitola would be a treat. So now I’ve had the opportunity to smoke a handful of these cigars and think […]
