Last year, I started a cool event that I hoped I could continue, I was thinking last year that most of us are always waiting for that one day to smoke that one great cigar, but sometimes years go by without it happening. We might keep waiting and waiting and waiting…

So, for the second year, I propose that we have a smoke out over this Thanksgiving weekend (anytime between Thursday and Sunday night) where everyone who wants to participate will smoke one of those cigars they never get around to smoking, either because it is “too rare” or because it has some special meaning to you.Thanksgiving 2010.png
Then, everyone will post reviews or general impressions of the cigar in the comments section of this post…make it as long as you want, but keep it concise.

To make it even more interesting,  I will choose the review I like the best (and I am a fickle SOB! LOL!) and give that person something REALLY good, something that you would most likely have a fairly hard time finding…

Now, I know what you are thinking…what am I going to smoke? Well, here is what is in store for this weekend…


They are:

  • Romeo y Julieta Romeos (Réplica de Humidor Antiguo in 2008-Only 250 Humidors released World Wide)
  • Opus X Maduro Robusto (from the Forbidden X humidor in 2002- 0nly 100 Humidors Released)
  • Garcia Tampa Clear Havana from the 1920’s

Steve is going to smoke a Partagas Serie D No.4 Reserva and a Cohiba Gran Reserva as well…

Enjoy your Thanksgiving, and don’t forget to post what you smoked.

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
