Sunday Read: Great Social Media and Cigars

More Than a Hobby- a great Cigar is the start of your Passion

Today we will look at some great Cigar-related social media souces to keep you edutained and entertained through the balance of our COVID-19 Level 4 lockdown.

Thankfully there are loads and great social-media sites providing countless hours of great cigar content, I am sure I only cover off a small amount.
Please feel free reply to this email and let me know YOUR favourite cigar-related social media hangouts.

Let's start local:

Facebook Group: PASSIONADOS-HEMINGWAY
Our very own, private hangout for cigars in New Zealand; we've organised some 5 or 6 vHERF's (virtual HERFs / virtual cigar gatherings) during the lockdown so far; having up to 15 guys and girls across New Zealand enjoying a cigar and chatting away; we have been fortunate to have a couple of USA-based cigar industry people also join in.

Facebook Page: CANTEROS.nz
This of course or business-page where we post new products coming or ask for your feedback on potential new cigars to stock for New Zealand; please Like and Follow-us

Facebook Page: The Cigar Merchant
This is my political rantings and industry news Facebook page

[ please don't forget to reply and share your Social Media hangouts with us ]

Fantastic YouTube Channels:

We are truly fortunate that some of the older industry folk have put some great work into creating education and entertaining YouTube Channels

Not long ago I shared the great work Eric Newman of J.C. Newman Cigar Co. is doing with this Shadow Box series - just click here to see the channel and soak up some incredible knowledge from the past 125 years of the J.C. Newman Cigar Co. - more episodes are up now, go check them out!

Not to be outdone, Arturo Fuente and their International parter Meerapfel have created the Meet The Professor YouTube Channel; this is after the recent announcement the Master Blender Jose Blanco has joined the Arturo Fuente team in Europe - just click here to see the channel and enjoy some rather entertaining content.

For me, the next key YouTube Channel are the world's #1 Podcast, The Cigar Authority which is both equally educational and entertaining; click here for their YouTube Channel. These are the guys behind Two Guys Smoke Shop(s).

Of course Cigar Aficionado magazine has a YouTube Channel; as does Cigar Journal magazine, the later doesn't seem to update content very often though.

Other great YouTube Channels:

Joya de Nicaragua - awesome behind the scenes information and interviews from the oldest operating Cigar Factory in Nicaragua and great friends of mine

Cigar Podcasts:

Of course worth a second mention, The Cigar Authority which is the #1 cigar podcast in the world.

A Cigar Hustlers Podcast - more entertainment than anything else, but if you need some company and a laugh while enjoying your cigar, then check it out.
