Toast of the Week (1/19/10)


Another week gone by and another batch of toasted cigars. Before we get into the toasts, I have a request. If you haven’t signed up for our RSS feed, which provides notification of each new post, please sign up here! It is greatly appreciated!

There was some excitement in the cigar industry this past week with the announcement of a major merger between Swedish Match (General Cigar Co.) and Scandinavian Tobacco Group (CAO). There are also some great contests floating around the web to kick off the near year. But now, it’s time for a toast.

  • Our good friend Tony Casas from Casas Fumanda has teamed up with Bonita Smoke Shop to give away a box of La Gloria Cubana Serie R #7. Toast it here.
  • The Velvet Cigar takes on the #15 cigar of the year, according to Cigar Aficionado, the Partagas Benji Menendez Master Series Majestuoso. Toast it here.
  • The Cigar Nut has a great guest review from Jacob (a new review partner for TCN?!). He takes on the 262 Paradigm. Toast it here.
  • Cigar Jack fires up a Carlos Torano Exodus 50 years. He’s got a solid opinion on these smokes, considering he has smoked over a box of these. Toast it here.
