industry updates

Speaking of the cigar itself, each Swag is a Dominican Puro made completely from Dominican tobacco. More specifically, the filler, binder, and wrapper is all of the Dominican Ligero Habano variety. While the Swag supposedly comes with the traditional flavor and aroma usually found in Dominican cigars, it is also said to provide plenty of strength and complexity usually associated with cigars made from Nicaraguan tobacco.

The Swag line comes in six sizes that include the 5 x 54 Lavish, the 5.5 x 42 Quickie, the 6 x 54 Infamous, the 6 x 60 Ego, the 6.5 x 52 Fierce, and the 7 x 38 Elite. As you can see, each of the vitolas is named with a swagger-filled moniker. If you go to the Swag cigars website, they even offer up definitions for the names chosen for each vitola to further express how they convey the whole message behind what Swag hopes to offer to a new age of smokers. Pricing for the Swag line is rather affordable, as singles hover around the $5 to $6 range. Swag cigars are now available for purchase, and it should be interesting to see whether they are all style, or if they actually have some substance behind their flashy presentation.

New poll reveals public does not favor smoking bans


The presence of smoking bans and anti-tobacco campaigns seem to be gaining strength around the United States and even across the globe. Many locations are banning smoking in areas such as public parks, restaurants, and other places where people congregate. Throw in increased taxes that are causing many tobacco shops to go under, and you have yourself a seemingly bleak outlook for the industry. Although the growing number of obstacles against the tobacco industry seem to be overwhelming, a recent survey indicates that the public perception is not so negative.

Rasmussen Reports released results of their recent poll on smoking on November 18. 1,000 adults in the United States were surveyed during November 14 and 15. The main finding within the results was the fact that just 17 percent of the participants said they believed that smoking should be outlawed in the United States. The number of those in support of smoking being outlawed dropped from the 22 percent who voted the same way in a similar poll conducted in December of 2008. The majority of the participants, 72 percent to be exact, said that smoking should not be outlawed. The remaining 11 percent said they were unsure.
