NJBS is a weekly show that brings together a one-of-a-kind panel of tobacconists and bartenders from Twins Smoke Shop and the 7-20-4 Lounge, who give live reviews of cigars and pipe tobacco, each with its own pairing of a spirit or cocktail. Add in-depth interviews with area reps, cigar and pipe celebrities, discussion on cigar and pipe life, what is going on in the industry, and the occasional apple pie, and you have the makings of a truly unique podcast. And that is—Not Just Blowing Smoke! New Episodes every Monday.
Meet the members of NJBS! From left to right:
