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.

Parodi Cigars Exported to Italy

The Italian-style dry-cured cigars made by the Avanti cigar company in the United States (which my Italian grandfather used to smoke and we called "guinea stinkers") are finally going to be available in Italy...

Fulfilling a lifelong goal of its immigrant forebears, the family that owns Avanti Cigar Co. has established its famous Parodi cigars in Italy.

Hair Salon Caters Exclusively to Guys

Well, since I give myself a haircut every morning with a badger hair brush, soap in a cup and an double edged safety razor loaded with an Israeli blade, I would not have any need of their hair cutting services, but this will be great for guys with hair...

THE MEN'S Hair Salon and Spa, located upstairs from Stadium Brewing Company, offers a full-service salon to its male clientele.

It's Time to Give The Nannies the Boot

I'm getting real sick and tired of nannies telling people what they can advertise and to whom...

Several public health organizations are calling on the Orange Bowl and the NCAA to pull a three-year deal with Camacho Cigars, saying tobacco promotions like the Florida cigar company's sponsorship of the football games have no place in sports and shouldn't be allowed under federal tobacco marketing restrictions.

The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, the American Cancer Society and eight other groups sent a letter on Tuesday to game organizers and officials with the collegiate athletic group that raised concerns over the deal.

It's time to get these destroyers of commerce "off the playing field". If you want to advertise a legal product to legal customers, you ought to be able to. I don't prefer the Camacho Corojos, but I really like the Baccarats. :)

Black Market Thrives in Cuba

The black market is regular market forces exerting themselves against a repressive regime...

(Reuters) - Packing long cigars into a white box picturing Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, a Cuban man delicately places a thin wax-paper stamp of quality inside.

He then finishes the job with an official guarantee.

Now, no one will be the wiser that these stogies are black market cigars.

Nobody Rolls Cigars Like Those Cubans

Holy cow! Talk about a long cigar!

Cuban cigar roller Jose Castelar Cairo, known as Cueto, will get his fifth Guinness record certificate for rolling a 81.80-meter long cigar, the longest in the planet, in a ceremony at the Morro-Cabana historical, military complex on Nov. 24.

Can you imagine how long it would take to smoke that baby?

Cigar Diary Improvements

I have fixed up the diary display. When you view diaries in the sidebar, you get the entire entry, including info relating to the reviewer, and info relating to the cigar. It's still a little rough, but I'll be improving the layout. The next thing I'm going to try and do is create a view that allows you to download your review to excel (or csv, or tsv).

As always, if you have suggestions, please use the contact link to let me know.
