Coffee & cigars, part tres

We've been focusing a lot lately on the pairing of coffee and cigars. Two reasons: 1) We like the combo as an alternative to having an "adult beverage" with a stogie; 2) With winter coming on, it makes sense to pair a stick with a warm-to-hot drink. Our favorite on-camera coffee expert, Coffee Kween (a.k.a. Kaye), pairs a La Gloria Cubana Churchill NT (7" x 50) with a nice Vietnamese blend. Sounds delicious ... hope you're gettin' some good jitters as you click Play: For details on the … [Read more...]

Video review: The Dog Walker

Yep, you read that right. I admit I never heard of this Dog Walker stick. But after seeing the Smoking Hot Cigar Chick's take on it, I think I might have to find it for myself. And maybe even review it. You know, to compare notes with the SHCC. Who wouldn't want to compare notes with her? In all seriousness, though, here's an excerpt of how she described it at YouTube: Kurt Kendall's 7-20-4 brand is a name that has been rejuvenated from R.G. Sullivan's famed building on 724 Elm Street in … [Read more...]

HC Series cigar (Xikar) review

With the launch of our own video reviews, I think we're going to make it VIDEO REVIEW WEEK (insert reverb) here at Stogie'd TV. Our second video review* features a cigar we haven't heard a lot about, yet looks pretty darn good. It's the HC Series of cigars from Xikar; you know, the people who make those awesome cutters. Lighters, too. The Smoking Hot Cigar Chick traveled to Xikar World Domination HQ, and talked the company about this stick. It's kinda hard to do a true "review" of a … [Read more...]

One gal smokes a cigar


WARNING: Probably NSFW [not safe for work] // Whenever I go to Veoh and search for cigar videos, this particular video is always the first in my search results. I've watched it once, and for the life of me I'm not sure why it gets top placement. The video is quite literally what the headline says: One gal smoking a cigar. She's shot from several angles, including one "up the crotch" shot that, quite frankly, makes me throw up in my mouth a little bit. It's not that this particular woman is … [Read more...]

Cuba needs women (cigar smokers)

Mars may need women, but Cuba needs women to smoke cigars. That was the push earlier this year, at an annual cigar festival where Cubanos are featured. Seems Habanos S.A. is targeting women with smaller, lighter stogies ... although I'm guessing many women out there wouldn't actually call a cigar a "stogie." We have more from Reuters (I sound like a news anchor when I say that): How do you feel about women smoking cigars? Are you a woman—sorry, I can't tell who you are as I'm writing … [Read more...]
