2nd Annual CfW Donation Drive Update 15

Posted on Monday, March 9, 2015 in World of CO

Untitled-1If you are donating and your package is NOT in the mail by Tuesday, DO NOT send anything for this drive, you can send anything you like direct to Cigars For Warriors past this point.

We are up to 2991 in so far! I’ll be doing these updates as I get similar size batches in all the way to the end!

Last year we had a tremendous turnout obliterating the record books, and I think we can do it again this year!

Now through March 15th I will be collecting any and all cigar donations that will be dropped off to Cigars For Warriors! Anything is appreciated, even the super cheap smokes. What they do is send out very balanced care packages and since many over there are new smokers they need a lot of lower end stuff to fill in!

As usual I will be doing weekly update vids showing everything that came in and then will drive up with the bounty for the final turn in tally vid with them again :)

Thanks! (more…)

General Cigar Sent Me a Trademark Violation Letter

Posted on Monday, March 9, 2015 in World of CO

Today I received and responded to what boiled down to a cease and desist Trademark Violation letter from General Cigar, for my Cigar Art involving their frontmarks, which is now just a portfolio here on the site. Since it’s not worth a penny to me to fight, I gave in and stopped offering the artwork for sale.

So as a result I am no longer supporting in any way, General Cigar. No more reviews of their products (unless one accidentally slips by because I didn’t realize it was under their umbrella), no more press releases, no more accepting them for advertising.

To be crystal clear I am not advocating consumers do anything. I am simply informing you of what I am personally doing regarding the site.

So there’s a big warning to anyone producing and selling anything with Brands/Logos such as any other kind of artwork, clocks, guitars, collages with bands, etc.

Punch Rare Corojo 10th Anniversary Aged 4 Years Cigar Review

Punch Rare Corojo 10th Anniversary Aged 4 Years Cigar Review

This little guy has been aging 4 years and it was time to light it up to see how it fared. Most of what I have tried has been lack-luster to say the least, with really only the super premium brands doing well and by that I mean not getting worse. In fact most cigars I have aged 4-6 years got plain boring compared to theri fresh selves. Luckily this one while not improving, did hold it’s own with a medium-full body, good construction to about the band point, bold enough flavors to be interesting and an unmistakable smoothness from the age. This was shot on location at Daytona Bike Week 2015! (more…)
