“Smoked Up” No.56

Well, I made it out of winter storm “Leon” pretty good. It got way too cold for my southern blood. Last Tuesday afternoon brought freezing rain with a few snow flurries. That night it got colder and almost all the bridges and a few roads were shut down in the area. Thursday afternoon they started opening […]


“Smoked Up” No.55

I wish the weather would make up its cotton pickn’ mind!! One day its 60s and beautiful, the next day its sleeting and icing the roads up. Living in the deepest part of MS, the ice and sleet is not anything we deal with on a usual basis and I didn’t like it at all. […]

Room 101 “305”

Today I’ve decided to review a cigar that I actually named as one of my most disappointing cigars of 2009. This cigar had a lot of buzz leading up the the 2009 IPCPR show, and actually got some good reviews following the show. However, when I first sampled the cigar I was less than impressed. […]


Chris’ Version of a Top 10

This time of year so many of the cigar blogs publish their Top 10 lists for the year. And although I see how these lists are beneficial, I personally don’t feel like I can create a single list. Honestly, there are just too many factors to consider. So, I decided to create two lists of […]


Where the F is Brian…

That is the question all of the Cigar World is asking. Ok, ok maybe just 1 person (thanks Mike). But, in case there are 1 or 2 others out there who give a crap, I am still here. Unfortunately a series of events have prevented me from doing any sort of reviews over the past […]
