You Don’t Have to Spend A Lot to Get A Lot: with Special Guest Tequila Talia

One thing that the tobacconists of Not Just Blowing Smoke agree on is that you do not need to spend a lot of money to have a world class smoke. In fact, there are a number of great options out there for cigar smokers that are $10 or less.

On this episode of NJBS, we share some of our picks for excellent cigars at or below the $10 range, including the cigar we will be smoking on the show–the San Lotano Habano Toro by AJ Fernandez, which has an MSRP of $7.50.

There are also ways to get a lot without spending a lot when it comes to pipe tobacco. It is true that a typical 2oz tin of quality pipe tobacco costs about as much as a couple cigars, that can still add up, especially if you are buying multiple tins to age. But there are a number of popular blends that are available in both tins and as bulk. One of those is Cornell & Diehl’s popular Billy Budd, a four star rated blend on You can get this blend at about half the price of the tin when you buy it in bulk. We also share some other options for great tobacco at a great price.

Joining us is one of our favorite liquor reps, “Tequila Talia,” who reps more than just tequila. With St. Patrick’s Day coming up, we wanted to pair our cigar and tobacco with a good Irish whiskey. Talia has us pair our smokes with Redbreast 12 Year Single Pot Irish Whiskey.
