Hello folks. Welcome to this week’s episode of Half Ashed. I apologize for being brief; curt even. I’m in the midst of serious illness within my family and have various related matters to attend to. I wanted to give the full rundown, but for the sake of time and other duties I will be brief. So, at the risk of being blunt here’s this week’s show.
We started the vertical tasting of 2008-9-10-11-12-13 Oliva Serie V Maduro. This week, we smoked and covered years 2008 and 2009. As always, we covered a few bits of exciting news around the industry and other items – as well as had a fun time doing it. Thanks for joining us, and enjoy!
Next week, I may very well not be available for the show. If not, I will have Craig lined up with a cohort to help host. If I am able to participate, we’ll be discussing years 2010 and 2011 of our ongoing vertical tasting. As always, we’re constantly looking for suggestions about potential Cigars of the Week, and Unbanded cigars. So if you have one drop us a line at one of the email addresses below. Be sure to check back in next Friday night at 9:30pm EST at Cigar Federation (details on locating the show will be on the front page that evening an hour before showtime), where you can catch us recording and participate in the chatroom. If you would like to contact us in the meantime, you can reach us through the contact page or at the following email addresses: [email protected] or [email protected]. Please feel free to drop us a line if you have any questions you’d like answered, comments to make…or even compliments and complaints. We love to get your emails! Also, remember you can always go back and listen to previous episodes, which can be found in the Half Ashed Archive. You can download this week’s audio directly below (right-click “Download” and save), or find us on iTunes to subscribe. Video, as always, will be available at the CigFed Half Ashed Video Archive.
P.S. – If you have unbanded suggestions or contributions, you can get those to us by sending an email to [email protected]. This email address goes directly to my wife, so you can simply suggest an unbanded cigar for her to source, or send me an email to [email protected] if you have something you’d like to send in. I will provide an address to send them. Thanks!
