Welcome to the Cigar Diary

Helping you make our hobby more fun!

Do you enjoy fine cigars? Have you ever lost your cigar tasting notebook? Do you have a cigar tasting notebook? Here is a place that you can store your cigar tasting reviews, whether they be Cuban vitolas, Honduran cigars, Jamaican sticks, etc. Other folks can also take advantage of your expertise when they use your review to decide on a new cigar to try, or simply to compare notes. You can also find out what others thought of a certain cigar.

Habana Cigar Shop in Albany

Every so often, I'm called out of town on business in Albany. Sometimes, the trip is overnight. In those cases I make is a point to stop in the Habana Premium Cigar Shoppe at 1645 Central Ave.

The shop is large, clean and well lit with a monstrous, well stocked walk in humidor. The young counter help are friendly, knowledgable and not at all pushy. Part of my fun is wandering around the humidor looking at all the wonderful cigars, and deciding which ones I'm going to buy when I finally hit it big. :)

Hermann Goring Cigars Go on the Auction Block

A box of cigars made for Hitler's deputy, Hermann Goring, are expected to fetch up to £500 when they go under the hammer at auction.

Groomed as the Fuhrer's successor, Goring loved to entertain lavishly at his grand manor house and was seldom seen without a glass of fine wine and a cigar in his hand.
