Dave is back from Miami as we celebrate Father’s Day with Dave’s Daughter La Gianna.

Each year Two Guys Smoke Shop hosts an annual sit down dinner featuring the Father & Son or Daughter brand owner. This year we celebrate with Father (David Garofalo) and his Daughter as the La Gianna brand celebrates its 25th Anniversary. We sit down with Gianna herself as we learn about her history with the cigar industry. We will fire up a cigar from the Care Package as we light up La Gianna Natural Torpedo as we put Gianna on the hot seat and maybe get her to dish the dirt on her Father.

In the second hour we will light up the La Gianna Maduro Torpedo as we continue our conversation with Father & Daughter. We will have all the usual suspects including Versus, Offer of the Day, Cigar News and a peek into the Asylum.

With Dave Garofalo in Miami the boys are in charge. This week they take a couple of mailbags and turn it into a show.

In the first hour Mr. Jonathan addresses the question, “How do you guys taste all those flavors you mention every week?” While some of us think Mr.J makes them up, there is actually a science behind it. Mr. J shares information about our palates, olfactory receptors and flavor wheels. We will even share some tips on how to make it easier to taste the notes we do all while smoking the Perdomo Champagne Epicure from the Cigar Authority Care Package.

In the second hour Barry will address a question that came in last week about aging cigars. Not every cigar will age well, and the same brand from different vintages might not age the same. However, there are tips to aging cigars and what to look for to determine of there is a chance they will age well. We will do this while we smoke the La Flor Dominicana 50th Segunda Edition TAA.
