It was the best of times it was the worst of times. That basically describes what is this week’s episode of Not Just Blowing Smoke. A perfect storm of technical challenges caused by National outages of cell phone coverage and intermittent Wi-Fi because of said issues, ended up making the first half of what we thought we were recording completely unusable. Which is a damn shame because it was a great Interview With My Father cigars VP of sales Jose Ortega. We had a great time, had a great interview, and really enjoyed reviewing the My Father The Judge TAA Robusto. Unfortunately all of that was lost. As a result, what we have for this week is the second half of the show where are we smoked and reviewed Rattray’s Marlin Flake pipe tobacco. We will have Jose on again in the near future. But we are choosing to see the glass as half full and making lemonade out of lemons by going ahead with putting out the half of the show that we did get. We hope you enjoy!This is the only podcast that brings the wealth of knowledge, expertise, and fun of Twins Smoke Shop, New England’s premiere smoke shop, right to you, wherever you are, whenever you want it. Each week we review a cigar and a pipe tobacco and have each expertly paired with a spirit or cocktail from the bar at our own 7-20-4 Lounge. And that is…Not Just Blowing Smoke!
