Earlier this year, I got an email from a friend I’ve never met (sounds like the subject for a song). I met GC Puffs through the inter-webs, specifically his blog and Twitter. He started working for Havana Smoke Shoppe in Mississippi a while back and now he was helping start a new cigar company with some of the others in the business. S&S Cigars would be “based in Miami” and owned by Brad and Bill Stephens. The goal was to make a great cigar at a great price and GC was brought in as “Brand Advisor.” After some time they decided on their first release, named “Foreplay,” using Nicaraguan fillers and binder, along with a “Sun Grown Habano” wrapper leaf (country not specified anywhere that I could find). At this point they are available at Havana Smoke Shoppe, but they are also available to other B&Ms. The original press release on S&S was back in May, read it here. The cigars actually hit shelves in October (read about that from GC himself here) and I received a few samples for this review. I got 2 Toros and 2 Double Toros (60 ring gauge). I smoked one of each size before smoking this Toro for the review.
