Cigar Cafe Radio Show Notes 7-15-15
Lane, Harris and Sean are on today as your hosts. Last night we had a special guest in town from Orlando for SEC media days. We recorded a special segment from Drew with updates on SEC media days. Drew also shared with us his thoughts on what will happen this season in SEC football. Who are the dark horses, favorites etc.
Special Guest today Drew Roberts from SaturdayDownSouth.com Interview segment
Drew also shared some funny cigar stories including one from his days in Birmingham, AL as a student at Samford University. While there he organized a group called Samford Stogies who ran the Mercedes Marathon while smoking lit cigars!
Drew was smoking a 2012 Arturo Fuente Opus X destino siglo during the interview from the Opus 6 collection released by Prometheus. Very rare cigar released to help fun the CigarFamily Foundation’s work to build schools and medical clinics in the Dominican Republic. If you find one of these sets buy it! They are very hard to find and always some of the best cigars you will ever smoke.
Drew’s home cigar shop is Corona Cigar in Orlando, Florida. Check out the interview for more…
Today with Sean and Lane Harris is smoking the Gurkha Cellar Reserve original blend. It is starting our with a good bit of spice. It is a full body Dominican Puro. In our opinion one of the best releases ever from Gurkha.
SEC football discussion
UFC 189 Party Update
Seans UFC 189 Party went great. The party was sponsored by CLE and Asylum Cigar Brands. Sean garage was decorated with lights and a 10ft. CLE / Asylum banner. Huge thanks to CLE and Asylum for sponsoring! The guest smoked Asylum Insidious, CLE Eiroa and Asylum Straight Jacket. Sean setup laminated info sheets on each cigar to educate the guests. The fights were incredible according to Sean our UFC expert. Connor McGregor won the main event as expected.
Who is Connor McGregor?
Lane is smoking the AVO 88 Limited Edition today. He also purchased an Alec Bradley Lineage to smoke soon.
CLE Signature Series Discussion
Great cigar unbanded but the new version is coming out now with bands.
Sean tried Erdinger Weiss nonalcoholic beer and really liked it. Kaliber nonalcoholic beer was his second favorite.
Alec Bradley Cigars has their website completely down for some reason? Maybe because of IPCPR coming up? Are they doing something special?
