“Smoked Up” No.58

I am making a few minor changes to “Smoked Up”. First of all, I am now going to be publishing it on Wednesday instead of Tuesday. This gives me a little more time to get information organized and releaves me of some of the early week stress. Second, I am changing the format some of the […]


“Smoked Up” No.53

Unless if you live in most of Florida, the weather has been pretty cold! Ok, down right cold last week. I live in south Mississippi and the wind chill got down to about 4* here the first part of last week. That’s unusually cold here and I don’t like it that cold. This type of cold […]


“Smoked Up” No.36

Another week past, another issue of “Smoked Up”. Not much going on in my neck of the woods. Its still hot and humid, but some relief comes in the late evening, which is when I usually enjoy a cigar. I’d like to stay up later when its even cooler, but I have to be at […]


“Smoked Up” No.29

The “Dog Days of Summer” are just about here, if not already. If it wasn’t the high temperatures, it was the rain showers and humidity. That has been the story for the past two weeks or so in my neck of the woods. I mainly smoke outside under my carport and with the weather not […]


“Smoked Up” No.13

Another week down, another issue of “Smoked Up”. This week has been pretty good, spring is upon us and the weather is nicer. The better weather means more smoking time and longer smoke breaks for me. I see myself grabbing larger ring gauged or longer lengthed cigars as the weather gets nicer. Once it gets uber hot […]


“Smoked Up” No.12

It is that time of the week when I tell you about the week’s happenings in my cigar journey through life, plus some news from around the interwebs. We had a glitch in our server last week and thought I had lost a few posts (including the Cuenca Cigars 5 Anniversary review), but we got them […]


“Smoked Up” No.3

This is the third installment of the “Smoked Up” series and its been a decent week in my week in cigars. There has been a handful of cigar news and I got a few new cigars in the humidor to review for you. So keep your eyes out for them in the up coming weeks. […]


“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 […]


Cigar Journal- 1

Time has not been on my side for a number of months now… as I’m sure you’ve been able to tell by my lack of posting. The good news, or maybe it’s bad news, is I’m getting my ass in gear and starting to prepare some fresh new content for your enjoyment. However, when I […]
