The Cigar Authority broadcasts live from the Toscano Cigar Sound Stage and today is The Leap Year Edition of The Cigar Authority – It’s Feb 29 and it only comes around every 4 years, and as for a Saturday, it’s been 28 years since this has happened. We smoke a cigar from The Care Package, the Camacho Corojo as we count down the 10 strongest cigars in the marketplace.

We will kick back and share our thoughts on cigars that Mr. Jonathan will never be able to retrohale. From number 10 down to number 2, which we will light up as our second cigar before letting you know what cigar comes in as number one as the strongest cigar according to the authority on cigars, TCA.

We will have this and all the usual suspects including Versus, Offer of the Day, Cigar News and a peek into the Asylum.
