Toast of the Week (2/9/10)


Are the weeks flying by for everyone else, or is it just me? Another week by with tremendous amounts of snow in the Northeast and Midwest. I hope everyone  is safe and with heat; still no action in Georgia. The weekend had an exciting build up to the Saints victory in Super Bowl XLIV; though I am a big Peyton Manning fan, I was happy for the Saints and the city of New Orleans.

This was another fine week around the web for cigar smokers; there were some reviews of pre-release cigars, a new cigar forum was launched, and the great #twitterpass of ’10 made it to the Southwest! We’d also like to welcome the newest sponsor of Toasted Foot, Cigars Direct! Cigars Direct offers a wide array of hard to find cigars, so be sure to give them a visit for your next online purchase!

So, without any more rambling, we offer a toast to the following!

  • Barry of A Cigar Smoker launched his cigar forum. I will be helping as much as I can as a moderator and I hope to see the forum gain some nice traction. Toast it here.
  • Dan at The Crooked Burn did a bit of an update to his blog and also had some great reviews, including the Isla de Cuba Aged Maduro. Toast it here.
  • Walt over at The Stogie Review offers a great article on the anatomy of a cigar, with the Perdomo Slow Aged 826 offering its life for the sake of the demonstration. Toast it here.
  • The Velvet Cigar takes on the PIO Resurrection, which earns 4 out of 5 stars. Toast it here.
  • Brooks at The Smoking Stogie takes on another very limited cigar, the Arturo Fuente Hemingway Classic Sungrown. The production run on this stick was a mere 4,125. You may be surprised by Brooks’ scoring. Toast it here.
  • And finally, Tom Johansmeyer has a great article on EO Brands and why they don’t have any new cigars planned for 2o1o. Toast it here.
