Finally awakened from his COVID driven slumber, Sam the Barman (aka Sam Van Winkle), that mixologist with moxie, returns to the podcast for our first episode in which we were all able to be back under one roof in over a month.
We start off lighting up the 10th release of Tatuaje’s cigar for the TAA. It is not what many people expected. But the goal of the TAA is to come up with something different. The real question is: is it good? Sam paired this with a cocktail he called a Chocolate Manhattan.
For our pipe tobacco review, we look at another bulk tobacco offering at Twins, Cornell & Diehl’s Haunted Bookshop. Sam paired this with another outside the box cocktail, a “Sam’s Savory Gin and Tonic.”
Pastor Padron shares another Cigar Confession, react to the impending tax increase on cigars in NY state, talk bulk vs tinned tobacco, mules in Russia, and rate Sam’s pairings with the Tatuaje TAA 2020 and Haunted Bookshop.
This is the only podcast that brings the wealth of knowledge, expertise, and fun of Twins Smoke Shop, New England’s premiere smoke shop, right to you, wherever you are, whenever you want it. Each week we review a cigar and a pipe tobacco and have each expertly paired with a spirit or cocktail from the bar at our own 7-20-4 Lounge. And that is…Not Just Blowing Smoke!
