Episode 495: Doc’s 10th Annual Central Coast Herf

Play

BACKGROUND: It started 10 years ago and now it is a part of history. Last week, on a hot Central Coast weekend, the Doc’s 10th annual Central Coast Herf launched its final hurrah. The 10th annual and final bash drew the most people ever for the Friday night pre-event party. The greatest number of people also turned out for the Saturday main event and even the Sunday morning traditional breakfast was the best attended ever.

The theme for this year’s event was chosen to honor the Military.

Episode 444: Tatuaje Avion Fausto Special Selection 12’s

Play

BACKGROUND: Avion “Fausto” Special Selection cigars are a size extension of the Tatuaje Fausto line. This special cigar collection was released as a new size every year from 2011 to 2013 and each will remain as full production lines into the future.

Tatuaje-Avion-Roxo-Red

The Avion Fausto gets it strength and flavor profile from an Ecuadorian Habano Maduro wrapper, which covers a strong blend of tobaccos from Nicaragua, comprised mainly of ligero from the Jalapa Valley and Estelí. The Fausto cigar line is purported to be full in strength, but with loads of flavor.

The cigars are packaged in boxes of 20 cigars. This cigar carries great potential as a “go-to” cigar for all those who love a bigger smoke and is a must try for fans of Tatuaje and Pete Johnson.

FEATURED LIBATION: 2012 Roxo Red Table Wine
The 2012 Roxo Red is a blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and a 20% Field blend consisting of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. This is Roxo’s interpretation of a classic Bordeaux blend. The wine weighs in at: 14.8%ABV, and comes in 750ml bottles at a price of $35/bottle. Just 168 cases were produced.
