Today we look at one of the most debated things in the cigar industry, and that is cigar etiquette. The so-called 10 Commandments of being a good brother or sister of the leaf. The amount of emails we get on the subject is amazing, and we’ve listened to the requests to make this a yearly topic.

In the first hour we light up the Perdomo Habano Bourbon Barrel Aged from the Care Package and let you know about this cigar that sees the wrapper aged inside barrels once used for bourbon.

In the second hour we look at the reviews you left about The Cigar Authority. We’ve reviewed cigars, magazines, and even a movie or two. But now it’s time for us to share your brutal honesty.

We do that while lighting up the cigar we named Cigar of the Year in the first hour. The Aganorsa Leaf Connecticut Robusto. The over/under on Barry referring to this as not your Grandfather’s Connecticut sits at 4.5.

We also have the usual suspects such as Versus, Offer Of The Day, Asylum, Classic 3-Way and Cigar News on the number one downloaded cigar podcast in the world.

The Cigar Authority is the longest current cigar podcast on the internet today. 9 Years in and we’ve asked the listeners for some show ideas and today’s show is one of them.
