CADE

Brother of the Leaf, Filmmaker, Prophet, former Mr. South Dakota 1996. I was a bouncer on the child beauty pageant circuit until one too many juice boxes went missing and somebody had to take the fall. I was set up. Ok, I was thirsty. All that hairspray in the air dries out your throat like a motherfu... I apologize to no man. Now I host the Tuesday Night Cigar Club podcast.
  • Cigar Review – Nica Rustica Adobe by Drew Estate

    When Drew Estate’s Nica Rustica line debuted way back in 2013 it was an immediate homerun for this reviewer. With it’s thick broadleaf wrapper and bold earthy flavor profile, I’ve easily smoked well over a hundred of the original El Brujito vitola. And speaking of El Brujito, this legendary...
  • Cigar Review – Cuesta Rey 95 Cameroon by J.C. Newman

    Released earlier this month to celebrate the 127th anniversary of the founding of J.C. Newman Cigar Company, the Cuesta Rey 95 Cameroon is manufactured at Newman’s factory in El Reloj which is the same factory that produces The American cigar which we enjoyed quite a bit back on Episode...
  • Cigar Review – Namakubi Ranfla (2021) by Room 101

    Way back in 2016 on Episode 32 we featured the Namakubi Ecuadorian Ranfla on the show and here’s what we had to say about it: “The presentation on the Room 101 Namakubi Ecuador Ranfla is impressive to say the least. Underneath two decorative paper wrappers lies a perfecto cigar...
  • Cigar Review – KB Part One by La Palina

    Woo hoo woo hoo hoo! So way WAY back in the fall of 2002, yours truly came across the screenplay for Quentin Tarantino’s 4th feature film Kill Bill on a QT fansite and, as an aspiring filmmaker myself back in those days, I didn’t hesitate to immediately print out...
  • Episode 154 – Yebiga PRVA brandy, CHC Serie E 5150 cigar, Rock ‘n’ Roll Nightmare (1987)

    This evening we celebrated 4/20 the responsible way… by getting nice and drunk. But seriously folks, tonight’s show is a true contender for our best episode ever. You’re in for a treat. First up is our exclusive interview with Bill Gould, legendary musician and founding member of the greatest...
  • Cigar Review – Bolivar Cofradia Lost & Found Oscuro

    So… I can only remember purchasing one previous Lost & Found release. And that box of cigars was acquired strictly because of the art work on both the cigar’s band and the box… For many years a family of donkeys lived along my property line and I took enormous...
  • Cigar Review – Arcana Firewalker by CAO

    When the TNCC reviewed the Mortal Coil last year, CAO’s first entry in their Arcana series, we all enjoyed the cigar quite a bit. In fact, over the years CAO has produced quite a few cigars that have impressed me enough (the America and the original release Vision specifically)...
  • Cigar Review – NightShade by Drew Estate

    Who doesn’t like a good deal? A while back I was flipping through a cigar catalog while waiting on teenager to deliver groceries to my car and I discovered that you could get a new Drew Estate cigar with a Connecticut River Valley wrapper for well under $7. Needless...
  • Cigar Review – Le Pâtissier by Crowned Heads

    Le Pâtissier is the French term for a pastry chef or “the baker” and while that might not excite you, dear reader, it surely gets my expectations riled up because the TNCC absolutely loved the Le Carême cigar (an homage to 19th-century French pastry chef Marie Antoine Carême who...
