Literary Stogies

From The New Yorker Book Bench blog, a great little piece about how cigar brands came by their names.  Montecristos? Named after the Count.  Romeo y Julieta’s? We have the Bard to thank.  Read the whole post here.

  1. Hi Pete

    Thanks very much for linking the article about the naming of cigars on your blog. I just finished reading it and it was very interesting. I partake of a cigar very occasionally and will remember that story next time I do.

    Chris
