NYC Cigar Factory Hosts Cigar Rolling Event for Men’s Health Event

Miami Herald November 3, 2016

New York City-based Martinez Cigar Factory is proudly participating in the Movember Foundation’s annual Movember campaign, by hosting a Movember cigar rolling event.  The Movember Foundation challenges men to grow a moustache, men and women to be physically active and move, or host a fundraising event.   All of which spark conversations and raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health.

On November 15h, Martinez Cigars will be hosting a Movember cigar rolling event to raise money for men’s health at their cigar factory in Manhattan.  For more details on the event, you can go to their event page.

The Movember Foundation is the only global charity focused solely on men’s health.  Men and women sign up at Movember.com, and choose to Grow, Move or Host. Men start Movember 1st clean-shaven and grow only a moustache for the month.  Or men and women can commit to move every day during Movember or host an event. Participants get friends, family, or colleagues to donate to their efforts to change the face of men’s health.

Blind Man’s Puff Review of Martinez Flatiron

blind cigar review

Our friends over at Blinds Man Puff recently did a review of our Flat Iron #2.  The mission behind Blind Man’s Puff is to create a web site to get a consensus on a cigar from multiple experienced reviewers without them knowing what they are smoking. Often people have preconceived notions about cigars, whether good or bad, based on their brand or preference. Sometimes people get stuck in the habit of only smoking certain brands they know they like, or are afraid to try new ones. The hope is that this blog will broaden smoker’s horizons and possibly get an appreciation for cigars they would have written off or not tried otherwise. There may also be surprises the other way, they may review a cigar that most people think is synonymous with greatness only to find it’s overrated.

Our Flatiron was reviewed blind (no bands) by a panel of 4 reviewers. They did not know what they were smoking beforehand. The scores are an average of all the reviewers’ scores.

The Martinez Flatiron #2 scored an 88 overall, making it a GOOD cigar according to their scale.

Here is what a couple of the reviewers had to say:

“This was a really great cigar to smoke during my annual camping trip. Wasn’t to light and wasn’t a pepper bomb. Perfect mix of flavors paired well with a few glasses of scotch by the campfire. These will not disappoint. Enjoy.” And “The draw was really nice on this cigar.  I used a straight cut and angled it which gave off a really good amount of smoke and flavor.” –Steve

“Well made with a nice shape, and no problem areas. Evenly constructed, with no soft or hard spots.”Derek

Cigar Etiquette: On the Golf Course

Cigar Etiquette

There is really nothing better than having a fine smoke while enjoying a day of golf.  Plus smoking on a golf course is one of the last places acceptable for enjoying a leisurely cigar.  Here are a few cigar etiquette tips to keep in mind while you’re out on the course:

 

  1. Know Who You’re Golfing with

If you’re out on your own for a day golf or just getting in a quick nine holes, then what you do with the cigars is really up to you.  When you’re out with a partner or a group it’s important to know their preference for cigar smoking.  Ask if anyone has an objection before lighting up.  If anyone objects find a way to work with them.  For example switch carts if you’re paired up with someone that doesn’t like the smoke.  Let them know you’ll be a step behind them or in front.  Most people expect there to be some smoking on the course so shouldn’t be too big of an issue.  On the other side, bring enough smokes to share with your group.  Lots of guys would love a smoke, but will have forgot to pick one up, and if you’re with new people what a better way to make new friends.

5 Stars – Trip Advisor

“Ybor City in Manhattan!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2016

Found this place through my Cigar Aficionado app. Walked in and bought a Don Antonio Escogido Robusto to try there. It was one of the smoothest cigars I’ve had in a while.

They roll them right there in the shop. Fabulous find for cigar smokers.

Walked out with 10. Signed up for their newsletter and now follow them on facebook.

They ship too!

Now, if they only made mojitos!
