CigarCraig’s 12 Spectacular Days of Cigar Giveaways 2015 Day 9: Smoke Inn Microblends

Several years ago Abe at Smoke Inn, a chain of ten (or eleven?) stores in Florida, launched his Microblend series. He’s had some of the greatest cigar manufacturers on the planet making small batch, store exclusive cigars for him, including Fuente, Padron, Tatuaje, et cetera. This year Abe has provided two ten count packages of his most current Microblend releases,  the Illusione Pactum and the Pope of Greenwich Village from Drew Estate.  The Pactum is a 5½” x 56 San Andrés wrapped robusto with high priming Nicaraguan filler, a Box of 15. The Pope of Greenwich Village is 6″ x 40, and has the San Andrés wrapper also, with a Connecticut Stalk-Cut Habano binder and fillers of Brazilian Mata Fina and Nicaraguan tobaccos and comes in a bundle of 10.  They both sound delicious, don’t they?  Thanks to Abe and his Smoke Inn staff for sending these along.  Abe also has a weekly radio show and podcast, Kiss My Ash Radio, which broadcasts every Saturday at 10am Eastern, check it out. Steve Saka is the special guest on today’s show.





This is going to cause some confusion….Yesterday’s winner of the Punch Signature Robustos from General Cigar Co. is Eric.  I know there were at least two Eric’s who entered, so it’s the one who didn’t use his full name (sorry Eric W! Try again today). So the Eric who posted around 11:46 AM EST yesterday needs to send me his info. I smoked one of these last night (not from your box!) and it’s a really nice smoke, sweet tobacco goodness and great construction. Thanks to Victoria and all the folks at General Cigar Co.!

    Love me some micro blends

  2. atllogix

    Well, I’ve had every SI Microblend except these 2 and the Padron SI-15, the best retailer series there has been, game changing for sure. Thought Stogies Lancero thing is right there with it, this is the Original bad boy. I would be honored to get a hold of this.

  3. Joe canez

    Very nice, hope I win!!!

  4. Tim Brannon

    Thanks Craig and Smoke Inn for another fabulous opportunity to win some savory cigars!

  5. D.A. Gale

    Abe has showcased some great blends in his microblend series. Keep ’em coming, Abe, and my fingers are crossed on this one!

  6. Great cigars, great shop, great radio show, great giveaway!!

  7. paul1954

    the Smoke Inn cigars sound wonderful, especially the Drew Estates with the Brazilian Mata Fina. Thanks, Abe!

  8. Haven’t had either one but I would love to try them!

  9. I have never tried any of the microblends. Was seriously interested, maybe this will be the chance!

  10. Chris C

    Love the Popes

  11. Now these are some exotic high quality tobaccos of which I’m vey fond of! Especially Mata Fina and just about everything from Brazil! Only a few cigars that I’m aware of that use the very excellent Cubra Habano hybrid that would be an excellent choice for their next micro blend. Everyone I have shared Brazilian with swear it’s better than Cuban! A tip of my hat to these brothers for using the store to notch up the variety and quality of a store blend, not to mention the gift for the drawing.
    Should I win these will make great gifts for several guys that I know who say they have tried everything.
    Talk to you soon brother Craig! Craig “Mad Bricky”
