Welcome back for another Episode of Your Questions, My Answers Episode 32. Just like last time, I’ve broken the show down into three segments all with separate video for your watching convince.
Question 1 from Anthony via Youtube
This is a question more directed towards Ed for YQMA #32. I’d like to know how did he get into the cigar business? From a viewpoint of an owner of a B&M, what does he think are the biggest issues facing the cigar industry? Lastly, if he could go back and do it all again would he do anything different (bigger shop, online presence, etc,)? I’d also like to see you guys answer these questions from a standpoint of “the media” and what you guys would do differently if you were starting Stogie Review with everything you guys know now.
Question 2 from Kevin via Voicemail
Some of you guys seem to developing some great relationships with retailers/manufacturers. Do you find that you are biased towards their cigars when you review them, now that you have gotten to know the people behind the scenes?
Question 3 from James via Contact Form
I really enjoy peppery flavors and was wondering if you guys could recommend a cigar that would be peppery from start to finish. I find this characteristic in the Partagas Black and AVO Domane but would like to broaden my selection.
Question 4 from Pete via Voicemail
Two of my favorite cigars are the 5 Vegas Serie A and CAO Brazilia. It seems that these cigars always smoke wonderfully through the first half then become difficult to keep lit. I maintain my humidor at 68% RH and 70 degrees.
Question 5 from Angelo via Myspace
Hi Jerry, I am relatively new to the fun world of “stogies”. I have been keeping a modest supply of stock in a humidor. I have recently become attracted to the Cigarillo world and I was wondering if I should be concerned at all about putting them in the same humidor with all the “Big Daddies”? Also, can you recommend any good cigorillos?
Question 6 from Jason via Voicemail
I’ve noticed that many large online retailers have some sort of exclusive cigar. Have you had any of these that really stand out among the crowd?
