Connecticut Fuerte from the Nomad Cigar Company

on Mar 27, 2014 in Cigars | 0 comments

The Connecticut Fuerte from the Nomad Cigar Company is a full flavored cigar wrapped up in a medium-brown leaf that is light and pliable to the touch. The band is reminiscent of old motorcycle artwork, featuring an winged iron cross with a compass. The Connecticut Fuerte features an Ecuadoran wrapper, with dominican binder & filler, and a pleasant aroma of brown sugar and wheat. The flavor is consistent throughout the whole smoking experience, with a peppery taste and a great draw. The construction of this cigar is impeccable. My only complaint would be the dryness on my tongue I get from smoking it, but that’s not reason to turn this excellent cigar down. The Nomad Connecticut Fuerte is definitely a great cigar for anyone who enjoys a full flavored cigar that has a great draw that produces impressive amounts of nice peppery smoke.

PSyKo SEVEN from the Ventura Cigar Company

After seeing the PSyKo SEVEN for the first time, I was sure that it had to have been a “so-so” cigar… Wrapped in a large band measuring almost 80% of the cigar itself, I was reluctant to give it up a shot, but I am glad that I did. The local companies PSyKo SEVEN features seven different tobaccos from 6 different countries, a Dominican Hybrid wrapper, and Mexican Sumatra binder. The flavors are out of this world. The cigar starts very smooth, with a nice even burn riding all the way down to the nub. With strong notes of chocolate and leather, each draw leaves you racing for another. About 10 minutes into enjoying this great cigar, you’ll want to remove large secondary band wrapping it. The flavors continue to pick up and don’t let you down. I wish I could enjoy one of these every day. I highly recommend the PSyKo SEVEN to anyone who enjoys a nice cigar,...

I don’t know what to say about this… but I will say that if those bags they are carrying aren’t actually parachutes, then they are crazy. Just watch in high definition.

The Zipper that Shames other Zippers.

on Feb 12, 2014 in Technology

In the year 1913 a man named Gideon Sundback created something so simple, yet so widely popular, that it would still be used over 100 years later… the modern Zipper, or as it was originally called, the “Separable Fastener”. The design has been refined, adapted, and has made it’s way into almost every facet of life- whether you’re camping in a tent with a sleeping bag, or you’re wearing your favorite jacket because you enjoy riding with the windows open in your Jeep. Albeit, there are only so many ways you can refine something already so well designed – or so I thought. Here we are in 2014 and after developing about 25 different prototypes, an engineer named Scott Peters has developed the next innovation in “zipper technology”, the MagZip. The concept reminds me of a mix between a Zipper, and the Magsafe Charger you would find on a...
