This week The Cigar Authority looks at the science of cigar strength versus the size of the cigar. It’s been a hot topic on the show lately with Barry & David thinking smaller equals stronger. Mr. Jonathan has strongly disagreed and with David Garofalo in Miami he takes over the hosting and tells us why he is right. But is he? #StrengthGate is here!

In the first hour we will light up the Neanderthal SGP which is part of The Cigar Authority Care Package and we will give you our thoughts as we teach you how to fix a cigar lighters. It’s not as difficult as you may think, so get a small screwdriver and your broken lighter and we will tell you how to get it working again.

In the second hour we will light up the Kristoff Criollo. We also have Cigar News, a trip into the Asylum and the return of the Classic 3 Way on the number one listened to Cigar Podcast in the world.

The Cigar Authority is a member of the United Podcast Network and is recorded live in front of a studio audience at Studio 21 Podcast Cafe upstairs at Two Guys Smoke Shop in Salem, NH and as always you can find many of the cigars we discuss at http://www.2GuysCigars.com/.

This week The Cigar Authority welcomes Christian Eiroa the owner of CLE Cigars. We will catch up with the man who caught lightning in bottle not only once, but twice. Why did he come back to the industry after he got out? What’s new and exciting in the world of CLE? Tune in to find out this and more!

In the first hour we will light up a cigar from CLE and in the second hour we will fire up La Gianna Havana, a cigar that is named after David’s daughter and part of The Cigar Authority care package.

We will also discuss games that are associated with cigar smoking, as well as share some games we’ve invented over the years. We also have Cigar News, a trip into the Asylum and the return of the Classic 3 Way on the number one listened to Cigar Podcast in the world.

This week The Cigar Authority welcomes two guests to the show. First we are joined by Glynn Loope from the Cigar Rights of America as he gives us a two year update on the FDA Deeming Regulations. Where do we stand? What can we expect? Is there a light at the end of the tunnel?

During the first hour we will be smoking the Jose Dominguez Maduro from The Cigar Authority Care Package.

In the second hour we will light up a treat that Dave brought back from the Tobacconist Association of America meetings in the Dominican Republic as we sit down with local La Flor Dominicana Sales Representative Stephen Poirier. We’ll give you a sneak peak at the LFD TAA 50th as we catch up on all things LFD.

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

It’s Cinco de Mayo and you know what that means? The boys are drinking, and since Dave was doing Tequila shots at the TAA in the Dominican Republic with the likes of Carlito Fuente, Rocky Patel and Jorge Padron he can slum it with the likes of Mr. Jonathan, Barry Stein and Ed Sullivan.

It’s also a cigar show, so we will talk a lot about that this week as we recap the week in La Romana as we talk exclusive releases, rumors and all the stories that we are allowed to share.

In the first hour we will smoke the first cigar from the May Care Package, the La Galera Maduro before following it up in the second hour with the pre-release of the E.P. Carrillo TAA Exclusive 2018.

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.
