Famouse Smoke releases Inferno 3rd Degree

CI-IN3-TORN-400Famous Smoke Shop is a leading online distributor of discounted premium cigars. The company specializes in offering the web’s widest selection of cigars at the lowest prices. Famous has just released a new cigar line in collaboration with Oliva Cigar Co. The new release is Inferno 3rd Degree cigars, and they are exclusively available at Famous Smoke Shop. The first shipment has just arrived at the company’s warehouse and is currently available for sale on their website. The company has expressed that the new brand will be available in limited quantities, but is not a one-time release and will be a consistent offering for the foreseeable future.

The Inferno 3rd Degree is the third release under the Inferno umbrella. The first brand in the series, Inferno, was introduced in 2012, with the Flashpoint hitting the market a year later. The Inferno 3rd Degree is a new blend, designed to provide sophisticated and complex flavors to satisfy every cigar smoker’s taste buds. This blend will be made in small batches and production on the brand will be limited.

Inferno 3rd Degree cigars utilize a blend of all Nicaraguan tobaccos with a triple-fermented Ligero and Viso longfiller core, and a Habano-seed binder, all encased in another silky Habano seed wrapper. The result is a full strength cigar with dark, rich flavors, with a slight natural sweetness to round out a customer’s smoke. Already hailed as the best of the trio under the Inferno name, it seems as if this cigar will soon take the industry by storm.

“This is a fine cigar with incredible flavor,” said Famous Smoke Shop editor John Pullo. “Inferno 3rd Degree cigars are made by Oliva which already has a sterling reputation for their consistency and quality. This is nothing short of another outstanding cigar in their arsenal. The interesting thing about this that not many people may know, is that it maintains a low price tag for customers to take advantage of because the tobaccos are mainly all grown on Oliva’s farms. That means our customers get premium tobacco without the inflated cost of Oliva buying an outside grower’s tobacco. It’s a genius farm to table concept which resulted in this top shelf cigar.”

The Inferno 3rd Degree cigars are available in four sizes – a 7 x 50 Churchill, a 6 x 60 Double Toro, a Robusto 5 x 50, and a 6 x 50 Toro. With Famous’ full box discount pricing, customers can enjoy this new offering with individual retail prices which range from $5.80 to $6.50 per cigar. People interested in learning more about the Inferno 3rd Degree or Famous Smoke Shop should visit Famous-Smoke.com or call 800-564-2486.

Room 101 creates cigar exclusively for Famous Smoke


Famous Smoke Shop is a leading online distributor of discounted premium cigars. The company specializes in offering the web’s widest selection of cigars at the lowest prices. Famous has just released a new cigar line in collaboration with Room 101 cigars. The new release is Room 101 El Mas Chingon cigars, and they are exclusively available at Famous Smoke Shop. The first shipment has just arrived at the company’s warehouse and is currently available for sale on their website. The company has expressed that the new brand will be available in limited quantities due to the supply of rare tobaccos used to blend the cigar, but is not a one-time release and will be a consistent offering for the foreseeable future.

The Room 101 El Mas Chingon is another addition to Matt Booth’s already wildly popular cigar line, and seeks to be one of their best cigars yet as this young blender moves up the ranks in the cigar industry. This blend will be made in small batches and production on the brand will be limited, with each one measuring at a 60 ring gauge.

Room 101 El Mas Chingon cigars utilize a blend of rich tobaccos from the Dominican Republic, Mexico, and Honduras for perfectly balanced spice, sweetness, and tobacco, with a deep earthy follow-through. The cigar wrapper is a well-fermented, naturally semi-spicy, Ecuadorian Habano leaf that complements this well-balanced cigar for a great complexity with flavors that come and go throughout the entire smoke. This is a medium-bodied cigar that will appeal to smokers who enjoy bold flavors without enduring a lot of strength. It’s great for those who enjoy mild cigars wanting to explore heavier cigars, and a comparable offering to those who enjoy stronger cigars.

“This is a cigar for the ages,” said Famous Smoke Shop Executive Editor Gary Korb. “From the moment I lit up this cigar, I knew it was going to be special. I typically enjoy everything Room 101 releases, and the El Mas Chingon has the potential to become the company’s all-star stogie. What’s even more impressive to me is the sheer variety in terms of sizes along with a low price tag. It is sure to attract cigar lovers because of the multiple sizes offered, and keep them coming back through its affordability.”

The El Mas Chingon is available in four sizes – a 4 1/2 x 60 Rothschild, a 5 1/2 x 60 Robusto, a 6 1/2 x 60 Double Toro, and a big 7 ½ x 60. With Famous’ full box discount pricing, customers can enjoy this new offering with individual retail prices that range from $6.50 to $8.00 per cigar. People interested in learning more about the Room 101 El Mas Chingon or Famous Smoke Shop should visit Famous-Smoke.com or call 800-564-2486.

MoyaRuiz announces The Rake

The-Rake Final

MoyaRuiz Cigars Inc. announce the release of The Rake, a new line of cigars from the makers of the La Jugada cigar brand.

With an intended launch of spring 2015, The Rake will be made at Erik Espinosa’s La Zona factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. The cigars will be presented in classic cabinet-style boxes of 20 and available in 4 different vitolas, Fix (5-5/8×46), Cut (5×52), Take (6×52), and Vig (6×60). Two of the sizes will be slightly box pressed, Cut and Fix.

Danny Moya, co-founder of MoyaRuiz Cigars explained the concept behind The Rake: “The Rake is a poker term which describes the fee taken by the card room for operating the poker game. You gotta pay to play!” said Moya, “and in the cigar business’, this As with MoyaRuiz Cigars’ first cigar line, La Jugada, The Rake pays homage to the company’s love of “the game”, and where La Jugada drew from the theme of dominos, The Rake stems from a love of poker. With The Rake, brand owners Danny Moya and Nelson Ruiz plan to give the cigars a different feel from the their previous releases. “Our La Jugada brand had more of a traditional/Cubanesque look, but as for The Rake, we wanted to give it a modern touch. The design of the band is inspired by the speakeasy peep hole found in many doors at underground gambling rooms and the cigar box has two slots on the top of the box to resemble a rake box” said Moya.

MoyaRuiz is describing The Rake as a med-full bodied, full flavored cigar – incorporating a powerhouse blend of four ligero leaves. Two from Jalapa which are sweeter and two from Esteli known for their strength. The wrapper will be Connecticut Broadleaf. Even though The Rake will feature four ligeros it’s very balanced because of the other leaves in the binder and filler. Truly showcasing the quality blending coming out of the La Zona factory. “We want to keep pushing the envelope, with full and complex flavors,” said Moya.

Special thanks to Erik Espinosa and Hector Alfonso Sr. for working closely with us on this.

The Rake is slated for a release in spring, 2015.

Zander-Greg’s New HHB Gold Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Nat Cicco Brand Cigars with Improvements and Reduced Price

HHB GoldThe first production run of Zander-Greg’s HHB Gold super premium cigars is now shipping, after undergoing improved packaging, an all-new ring, larger sizes and a 25% price reduction.

Zander-Greg introduced this latest addition to its existing HHB series with a new name … HHB Gold … changed from the original HHB Habano branding that reflected its wrapper tobacco.  The new name, plus an all-gold band, honor the 50th anniversary of the Nat Cicco (Seek-oh) line of cigars, which premiered in 1965.

HHB Gold’s blend is unchanged, with an Ecuadorian-grown Habano leaf, surrounding a Nicaraguan filler and binder.   The three cigar shapes, which it shared with the original HHB, are now larger at 7-3/4″ x 54, 5-1/4″ x 56 and 6-3/4″ x 58.

The presentation is 10 cigars per box, the same as the original HHB, and each cigar is now protected in a cellophane sheath.  The visual impression of the black piano-finish Spanish cedar box remains a strong visual incentive to experience HHB Gold’s satisfaction.

A final bonus is a reduction in HHB Gold’s suggested retail price to $7, down from the IPCPR 2014 tobacco trade show-announced $10.  As the company says, “This saving, plus the larger sizes, offer extra value to the smoker.  HHB Gold is a superpremium cigar at boutique pricing.”

Nat Cicco’s Churchill and Robusto Rejects pioneered the value-priced cigar concept a half-century ago.   Now, their Nat Cicco offerings include Cuban Style, Cuban Legends, and the new Aniversario 1965 and HHB superpremium series.  HHB Gold, proudly wearing their all-gold cigar bands, are now at better tobacconists nationwide.
