“Smoked Up” No.38

Well, the weather seems to be cooling off some down here in the south. That means it is somewhat easier to get out and do odd projects around the house that have been neglected this summer. As well as enjoy a few more cigars. I started getting my hunting/camping gear ready for this season and I […]


“Smoked Up” No.31

Another week is past us in 2013 and another issue of “Smoked Up” is here. Nothing too much to report in my neck of the woods. Finished up a 4day @ 12hours/day work week which left me whooped. I didn’t enjoy too many cigars last week due to the long hours of work. When I […]


“Smoked Up” No.22

Summer is almost upon us and it seems to be getting a jump start here in the deep south of Mississippi. I think every day this week hit mid to upper 80s with high humidity and a few days of spotty rain. So, that means the size of the cigars I will be smoking will possibly start […]


“Smoked Up” No.21

Welcome to the 21st week of 2013 and the 21st edition of “Smoked Up”. This week was back and forth with me. I had a few days where I wasn’t feeling well (hence why this is being posted on Wednesday) so I didn’t have many cigars this week. My tastes and stomach were pretty off […]


“Smoked Up” No.16

This week’s “Smoked Up” is extremely light. I haven’t been fealing all that great this week. My tastebuds are off, so it was tough to enjoy a cigar. The latter part of last week was sort of hetctic at the abode with my daughter in and out of being sick, so I spent a lot […]


“Smoked Up” No.14

Once again, I am bringing you some views and news from my week in cigars. Had a very eventful week and especially the weekend. Saturday, me and a group of guys had a party at El Puros Perfecto (Ocean Springs, MS) for a good friend who is expecting a baby girl soon. Many thanks to the […]


“Smoked Up” No.5

This week has been really crazy for me. I got one of only two prereleased cigars from Elogio & Cresecent City Cigars and got a review of it up. It was a pretty good smoke! So I was stoked to have been one of two who got to review it first. Then, I had a […]


“Smoked Up” No.1

Its a new year and I am going to try out a few ideas this year. I did a small editorial on Trends of 2012 and will do a few more articles as time passes of things on my mind in the cigar world. Another new (to me) thing I am going to try is […]


Shawn’s 2012 Cigars of the Year

Every year I, like others, like to make a list of my favorite cigars of the year. Well, the year is winding down fairly fast, so its time for me to do my list for 2012. I have smoked a good number of cigars this year. Many of them are the new releases and some […]


Viaje Winter Classic

In the 5th installment of the White Label Project, Viaje introduces a cigar that is the smallest of the series so far.  Called the Winter Classic, this cigar was made for colder months of the year, mainly in the northern states, where the weather shortens a person smoking time.  Because of this, Andre Farkas, the […]
