We have a very different episode for you this week. Episode 9 is a crossover collaboration with another cigar podcast, The Cigar Hacks. Pastor Padron, Nick, and Dave of Not Just Blowing Smoke are joined by “Cigar God Dave,” “Nurse Rick,” “Dom the Dominator,” and “Reverend Harvey” of The Cigar Hacks. Why? Why not! Our crossover was the Hacks’ 100th episode too! Both Pastor Padron and Nick have been on their podcast a number of times and are glad to support and celebrate our fellow podcasting BOTL! Their own version of this recording (which is almost twice as long) can be heard on their website or wherever you get your podcasts.
Along with these guests, we are joined in the first half by KC Johnson of Tatuaje cigars and we light up and review the newly released ME II Toro. We talk Tatuaje’s history, how KC got involved, and his thoughts on working for his little brother.
For the second half of the show we get the Hacks to pull out their pipes and join us in giving our thoughts on the new Small Batch release from Cornell & Diehl, Carolina Red Flake, an all red Virginia, all North Carolina leaf flake.
This is a fun show that was recorded right in the middle of the 7-20-4 Lounge. You can listen here or click on the link below.
