el baton cigars tonight at allegheny smokeworks

While this may not be pipe related news, I just wanted to mention that Allegheny Smokeworks is having another cigar event tonight, this time for El Baton Cigars. I’ve recently finally begun enjoying a cigar, after trying a few to celebrate my recent engagement. It’s still nowhere near as good as a beautiful briar filled with sweet sweet VBC, but interesting nonetheless.

“When the El Baton brand was first released from the J.C. Newman Cigar Co., it came in only one size, the Double Torpedo. Two more sizes have been added to the brand of thick cigars, none of which are thinner than a 54 ring gauge. El Baton began as a vintage brand made by J.C. Newman in Cleveland back in 1914. It was a nickel cigar that was made by hand with Cuban tobacco, but disappeared with the onset of machine-made cigars in the 1920s. The new incarnation is in keeping with its history as a bargain smoke, but rather than using Cuban tobacco, El Baton is J.C. Newman’s first Nicaraguan puro, and it is a very tasty brand. The most impressive was the Double Torpedo, its debut size. It scored 91 points.” Cigar Insider

I’m hoping to stop by after work; the event goes from 5-8.
