Halloween has always been a very special time for me. As a child, growing up in Glen Cove, NY, I have very fond memories of getting dressed up and roaming the streets in search of the house giving out the best candy. We lived in a neighborhood where everyone knew everyone. Our parents never took us door to door. We would just meet up with our friends and from about 4pm until it was so dark you couldn’t se read more

In the October issue of Cigar Aficionado, La Flor Dominicana owner Litto Gomez took out a “double truck” ad that had nothing to do with promoting his cigars. Litto used this large spread to speak his mind about the recent actions our law makers have taken against the cigar industry.
Since not everyone reads the magazine, I thought I would reprint the text from this ad. Unfortunately, the graphics will n read more

There is a somewhat common occurrence in the world of premium cigars, and it often sends an unknowing owner into a panic. The way it pans out is that they usually open their humidor, and in the midst of reaching for a smoke they notice that a batch of cigars appear to have accumulated a noticeable “dust” on their surface.
