CAO America Potomac

      No Comments on CAO America Potomac

Wow, what a smoke. I picked up a CAO America Potomac today during lunch, with the intention of smoking it on the way home. This was my first mistake; the cigar lasted longer than the drive. The first thing I noticed about this cigar, other than the pretty Red, White, and Blue artwork, was that it has two shades of… Read more »

      No Comments on The CAO Mx2

A few weeks ago I picked up a four pack of short, thick CAO cigars.  The Mx2 was one of the four, and one of them I’ve already smoked.  The too long, didn’t read version of this:  It was very nice.

For this month’s Tobacco Tuesday, I need to address the best accompaniment for a cigar. No, I don’t mean Scotch (shock!): I mean the legs, and the woman attached to them (or man, if that’s your thing). They go great together for a variety of reasons. First off, like cigars, legs come in various widths and lengths. I’m more of… Read more »

Why Cigars?

      No Comments on Why Cigars?

I wasn’t born smoking a cigar. As someone working his way toward thirty, and someone who never smoked as a teenager, smoking a cigar wasn’t a habit I just transitioned into. Especially not with all the anti-smoking media we’re exposed to. It was very much a choice. Sure, I grew up around a few smokers. I never minded the smell… Read more »
