Watch how a master smokes a cigar while ripping Alexander Hamilton a new one:



Machine made cigars weren't around when John Adams was president, but, if they were, you know he'd be fully stocked with Muniemakers and Parodis. Texas wasn't a state then, otherwise he's be smoking a Travis Club while he listened to Hamilton's misguided judgement of the situation and reacted appropriately.

If you buy this jacket, I will, too:

The Swisher Sweets website is giving me a headache since the Surgeon General's Warning is at the the frame for every page and you can never escape it.

Nah. Folks might get the wrong idea about me. Though I think they already do.

Texas Smokers. Are these machine made cigars? I'm unclear on that.

Image

They are Finck Cigars, however, so they are grandfathered into the machine-made thread, that's why I'm unsure of the make. If it's a Finck cigar, I'm in. I know Texas Smokers are seconds, but, to tell you the truth, I can't tell if they are pure tobacco leaf or have HTL binders or wrappers. They look like machine made cigars and they are the perfect shape: Perfecto.

Image



They're tasty.

Texas Smokers are cheap cigars, too, which is always a plus. The smoke slowly and deliver a lot of flavor, a lot more than you would expect for the price point. I would compare a Finck Texas Smoker to some Drew Estates. YMMV

Image

Finck Texas Smokers. I highly recommend them. Supplies are limited. $21.50 for twenty delicious cigars. If you have a problem with the price, you have more than one problem----you're nuts. Finck Cigar Company is the neglected Spindletop of the cigar world. Everybody thinks that well is tapped out but there is still good stuff coming from Finck. You won't go wrong if you order a bag of Texas Smokers. You'll thank me next month.

Before the Big Migration, I would have said, confidently, them's machine made smokers. Now, who knows. Thigh rolled, Lieberman rolled...full bore machine made? I dunno anymore. I can say with 78% reliability that cigar is either a Senator or a Especiale. Or a Sam Houston perfecto. Probably.

Lieberman counts as machine made. Thigh-rolled counts as delicious. Finck Texas Smokers are delicious, no matter how they are made. I'm going to order 6 more. At this price, it is totally worth it. Every cigar from Finck is totally worth what they charge. Every cigar Finck sells is a deal.
