New Yazoo Hop Project IPA In Stock!

ty_posthead
This is a great small batch IPA. Linus has numbered the batches on the boxes, and each batch will be hopped a little differently. Right now, we have 12 ounce 4-packs of batch 13, and will be putting a keg of batch 12 on draft as soon as a tap is free. This newest “Brewmasters Reserve” release will sell out fast. Get it while you can. Collectors may want to get a 4 pack from each batch so you can compare!

La Gloria Cubana Artisanos de Miami

These are some of the best cigars released in recent months. Only 100 retailers around the country got these initially, and we were the first in the Nashville area. The Elegante, which is roughly a Churchill size, was just named #9 out of Cigar Aficionado’s top 25 for the year. A lot of our customers and Woody’s staff have tried them, and we all agree that they are nicely balanced medium bodied cigars with superior flavor. Construction and burn is excellent. This was Ernesto Perez-Carillo’s last project before his departure from the El Credito division of General Cigar, as he is starting his own company with some of his children. Can’t wait to see what this master blender comes up with!

Quality on a budget

Hey there, I still want to enjoy a good cigar, except I cant really afford to pay $15-20.00 per cigar. Can you advise me on a good cigar that runs $9-11.00? I really like the Davidoff 6000 if thats helps determine my taste!

SCHIP Hits the Fan

I finally got the paperwork details on the new federal tobacco taxes, and we are implementing price changes on the affected items as I write. As usual, the government made things about as hard to understand as they could. Folks that buy the “tins” of all but the very smallest cigarillos are going to be hit hard. Many of these cigars weigh more than 3 lbs per thousand, and are thus classified as LARGE cigars. What a joke! Don’t be surprised to see the retail price almost double! I’m sure many stores are considering no longer carrying the “roll-your-own” cigarette tobaccos, which saw a 2000% increase in taxation. I think the reason they are getting all the fast food chains in line with required statements of calories, fat content, etc… is so they can put a junk food tax on things like hamburgers and fries. I wonder how folks would like it if their $1.79 fries suddenly cost $3.29?

Patio at Woody’s is Open!

Now that warmer weather is returning, we’ve got all the furniture out again. It’s my favorite place to enjoy a cigar and conversation. When weather permits, I’ve always enjoyed a cigar outdoors… some of my most contemplative hours have been spent relaxing with my favorite smoke, looking up at a startlit sky. It’s supposed to be sunny and 70 degrees the next couple of days, so come on out!
