Welcome back, folks. I’m glad you’ve joined us for Episode 048. We were scheduled to have George Rico join us for the show, but some last minute technical troubles prevented him from joining us Friday night. Nonetheless, we troopered on and smoked his American Puro. You’ll have to tune in to find out how we both enjoyed them, and all the details about the cigar. Thankfully, we had backup notes for just such an occasion. We covered news items from Nomad Cigars, Dante Cigars, Cigar Oasis, Tatuaje, and a couple of current events. As usual, we also talked about what we’ve been smoking – including one cigar that absolutely whipped me this week.
Next week’s Cigar of The Week will be the Casa Fernandez Arsenio Corojo, one of my favorites. As always, we’re constantly looking for suggestions about potential Cigars of the Week, and Unbandeds. 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!
