In the first hour we will welcome the New England Sales Rep for Oliva Cigar to the show as we light up the Gilberto Oliva Reserva from the Cigar Authority Care Package. We will sit down with Todd Kumes and find out whats new with Oliva Cigars.

Throughout the show we will be revisiting the Ten Commandments of Cigar Shops that was written a few years back by Miguel Schoedel who is now the Sales Manager for Crowned Head Cigars. We will light up the Four Kicks Maduro as we go through the list, and you will be surprised how many of these commandments you break.

We also have Cigar News, a trip into the Asylum and the Classic 3 Way on the number one listened to Cigar Podcast in the world.

Do you remember the Pepsi Challenge?

We do, and we will explain the concept and history behind it as we take that process to the cigar world.

Let's face it as we walk through the humidor a cigar band can catch our eye and causes us to gravitate toward that smoke. We all have friends that a loyal to one brand, but would they be if the didn't know the cigar they were smoking.

In the first hour the boys will smoke two cigars and there is no wrong answer, but will they choose A or B. In the second hour they'll do it again with cigars C vs D. Will we surprise the panel? Will the hosts pick the cigar they normally would without the band? Tune in to this social experiment and see how it all plays out.
