I get it: bourbon can be a pretty daunting thing to ponder and explore. There’s the sunk cost of the bottles, the high per-pour prices at bars and restaurants, and the “snob tax” of people overthinking their drinks. Cigars are even worse a minefield: the wide variety of brands, the confusing names, styles, and packaging; and let’s not forget the embargo. There are 163 million results in Google for “bourbon,” so it makes you wonder: where can I start? That’s what we’re here to do, to give you the tools you need to explore our two favorite vices together: bourbon and cigars.
Stogies and Mash is a bourbon and cigar blog and podcast for beginners. We teach you where to start with your exploration, first bottles to try or cigars to smoke, and where to source them. Through the progressive growth of our articles, you’ll move from a newbie to an anorak in no time. Within a year, we’ll have you drinking an iron dram with the best of them!
