The Great Blind Spice Off

Every week on The Cigar Authority we give flavor notes for the cigar we smoke. At the suggestion of a listener we present to you the great blind spice off. Can the boys tell you the name of the spice by the smell and taste of it or will they fall flat on their faces?

We will light up the Rocky Patel Sungrown Maduro, and while we were supposed to be joined by the local rep who has a background in law enforcement, Barry who has some experience in the field will step in and answer some of the questions we had lined up for him.

In the second hour we will light up a cigar that comes in an iconic size from Christian Eiroa. It's the size that is synonymous with the brands he has been associated with over the years. We fire up the CLE Connecticut 11/18 and share our thoughts.

Tune in to the madness known as The Cigar Authority, the most listened to cigar podcast in the world. We will have all the usually suspects including Versus, Offer of the Day, Cigar News and a peek into the Asylum.

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/.

 

We will be joined by Francisco Batista the Managing Director of Operations for Royal Agio in the Dominican Republic. We will look at the brands the company has to offer and find out the duties of Mr. Batista. We will light up a cigar from The Cigar Authority Care Package made in the Dominican Republic by Royal Agio, the Balmoral Anejo XO Connecticut Rothschild Massivo which measures 5 x 55.

Throughout the show we will look at Cigar Pairings, no we aren’t talking about liquor to Barry’s disappointment. What will we be pairing? The only way to find out is to tune in and see what we are talking about.

In the second hour, we will light up a cigar that is made in Nicaragua, but it’s not from a company based in Esteli or Jalapa. The cigar comes from the small town of Grenada, and we share our thoughts on the Patina Habano.

We step into the time machine this week and we look at the cigar industry and how it has changed from 1994 to 2019. We will pull out some old price lists and look at how cigar pricing has changed. We also look at prices from other industries to see if pricing has been consistent.

We also look at cigars we feel are underpriced. In short, what cigars perform better than their pricing. We look at values in the cigar industry.

If the first hour we fire up a cigar from David’s vault. The cigar is a 1994 Suerdieck Don Pepe Robusto that was made in Brazil featuring a Brazilian grown Sumatra wrapper. In the second hour we fire up a La Gianna Corona Maduro from The Cigar Authority care package that has been made since ’94.

Today we start the month of February with a cigar from the care package. As we smoke the Dos Hombres Honduran Cabinet we tell you about the history of the cigar on the 2nd day of the 2nd month, which is our book makes is Dos Hombres Day!

If you follow us on Social Media you noticed that we were all creating balls of pleasure for the 1st Annual Meat Ball that pitted David Garofalo, Mr. Jonathan, Ed Sullivan, Barry Stein”elli” and Steve Saka against each other to see who would have the tastiest balls. Well the results are in, and we will share with you the winner as voted on by those who attended the Meat Ball.

In the second hour we will talk a little football, and I mean a little football. Because outside of Barry I don’t think we have many sports fans on the panel. We all know Jonathan likes a Tight End, but we will relay our picks for the game while smoking the La Flor Dominicana Football Special Edition 2019.
