Good evening, folks. Welcome to another episode of Half Ashed. I apologize in advance for such a late publication. We actually recorded this show during IPCPR last Sunday, but I have since been traveling without an internet connection; thus, I had an inability to post up the audio. The video from this show is available on our YouTube channel in its unedited form – about 10-15 minutes of which has no video/only audio. We experienced some early issues with connectivity and killed the video to save bandwidth on the convention hall’s wifi. We subsequently turned it back on, so I have left it posted for those who might want to look at our ugly mugs. We covered a number of news items, as well as some early IPCPR stories – although this was actually recorded in the first 3 hours of the tradeshow (so news was very limited at that time).
Ezra Zion Eminence
Our cigar of the week was the upcoming Ezra Zion Eminence, which we greatly enjoyed and covered our tasting notes near the end of this abbreviated show. We will be recording Episode 024 this upcoming Tuesday (July 23) once I have returned from a family trip….and I will make every effort to have that posted almost immediately. As a sidenote, this will be an episode you definitely want to catch. We’ll be covering a great deal of news from IPCPR 2013, with coverage on quite a few new releases and great cigars I had the chance to try while there.
Episode 024 should be posted in a much more timely fashion than Episode 023. You can join us live while we record if you’d like as well – Tuesday night July 23rd. Follow my Twitter feed @The_Cigarmy and I’ll post the exact timing. In the meantime, if you would like to contact us, you can reach us through the contact page or at the following email addresses: [email protected] or [email protected].

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!
