What Makes These Cigar Rollers So Good?

Bobalu Cigar Company presents Cigar Rollers School. This intensive seven (7) day course is geared toward the cigar industry and those wanting to bring back  cigar rolling skills to their  own shop. Classes are on a one to one basis and instruction will be provided by highly experienced cigar rollers. We will teach  you both the Cuban as well as the Dominican style of cigar   making. This course will teach you every aspect of the cigar rolling process from selecting and  blending the leaf to box presentation after completion of the final wrapper phase. You will roll   cigar in our heavily trafficked window on Austin’s famous 6th Street  as your final test before you “graduate”.

This is a “can’t miss” investment and an absolute must for the serious cigar entrepreneur or store owner. The payoff is increased traffic, customer appeal, and  higher margins. Set yourself   apart from the competition. We have already taken the risk and proven that it is worth its weight in gold. Now is your chance to cash  in and turbo charge your business.

Cigar Molds, cutting boards, chavetas (cigar cutting “knife”), glue, cigar presses, and all other related equipment available at market price. Filler, binder, and  wrapper leaf, along with factory  rolled cigars using the same blends of tobacco, are also available.

Is This Golf Cigar Guy The Most Interesting Man In Golf?

Bobalu Cigar Co. is a big fan of integrating Cigars with great activities, such as golf. What could possibly be better than hitting the greens on a beautiful day with one of your favorite stogies, right? Well, we found this article about a pro golfer who understands the great pleasure of combining this sport with his cigars. We thought you might enjoy reading more about Miguel Angel Jimenez in the excerpt:

“In a sport seized by devotees of strength and cardio training, one of the names on the Masters leader board frequently has a glass of fine wine from his homeland before playing 18 holes of competitive golf. He always has a fat cigar dangling from his lips on the practice green.”  For the rest of the story, click here!

Famous Cigar Smoking Comedians

Famous Cigar Smoking Comedians 

Here at Bobalu Cigar Co., we love a good laugh and what could be better than laughing while enjoying a cigar? Check out this article on Comedians who understand the love we have for cigars!

Cigar Advisor Magazine has published an article in this month’s feature section, entitled,Comedians and Their Love Affair with Cigars Through the Years. Written by Joe Baker, readers will get a peek into the lives of comedians such as Groucho Marx, George Burns, Bill Cosby and more.

“Groucho is quite possibly the most famous and loved of all the comedians who smoked cigars,” writes Mr. Baker. “One of Groucho’s famous quotes, ‘A woman is an occasional pleasure, but a cigar is always a smoke,’ is an underlying tell at just how much he truly loved cigars. For Groucho, who started in Vaudeville, it wasn’t just shtick. In fact, Groucho’s first wife hated his cigar habit so much she demanded he quit smoking or find a new wife.

Planning An Event This Summer?

Bobalu has been the hit of the party for over 17 years now! Our rollers have been at all types of events including weddings, corporate events, golf outings, motorcycle rallies and well, you name it, we’ve been there! So if you’re looking to add something amazing to your next event, give Jeff a call at 1-888-33-CIGAR.  You can also check out our website here.

In the meantime, we found this great article about planning an outdoor event. Here are the highlights:

1. Increase satisfaction. Attendees love events under the stars and in the sun and fresh air.
2. Be creative. Utilize the natural landscape and scenery to create a fun, exciting or exotic theme for your event.
3. Enjoy both night and day. Nighttime events are always special but a daytime event at the right venue can be exceptional.
4. Make a quick recovery. Look for high-end artificial turf and an extensive drainage system to assure that no mud or puddles and very quick recovery in case of rain.
5. Get the power. Try to find outdoor venues with “power drop boxes” that prevent visible cords from running across walking and dining areas to connect to indoor plugs.
6. Let there be fire. People tend to gather near fire pits or fountains and they often come with an interesting design and built-in seating.
7. Use a tent. Create a more intimate atmosphere, seclude a speaker, contain noise level or prevent any weather concerns with a tent.
8. Eat well. Use a smoker to fill the air with the smell of a barbeque, fireworks, food trucks or host a sporting event. The sky is the limit!
9. Take a bathroom break. Look for outdoor venues that have convenient bathroom locations.
10. Just in case…Be flexible and creative when dealing with weather conditions. Look for a back-up plan but consider a tent or changing your theme to make everything come together.

Cigar Smoking Benefits

cigar, cigars, benefits, smoking, tobacco, cigar smoking, Hunger Eliminator, Conversation Enhancer, Camaraderie, Problem Solver, Relaxing


1) Relaxing – There are very few things in life more relaxing than smoking a cigar. That’s just a fact. A cigar at the end of the worst day has the power to single handedly change your perspective and make things right.

2) Problem Solver – Got a problem to solve? A good cigar will help. I have solved many a problem in life over a good cigar. Perhaps it’s the relaxing qualities of the cigar, or maybe it’s something else, but a good cigar enhances your ability to think clearly and reason.

3) Camaraderie – the solitude of smoking a cigar by yourself is nice sometimes, but there is nothing like enjoying the company of other cigar enthusiasts when you smoke a cigar. There is a unique bond between cigar guys and it’s easy to strike up a conversation, even if you have never met them before.

4) Conversation Enhancer – conversations are just plain better when you are smoking cigars. No matter who you’re with, the conversation is more interesting, enjoyable, funny, and fruitful when you’re all enjoying a cigar.

5) Hunger Eliminator – I’m a big guy and I could stand to skip a few meals from time to time. It’s a proven fact that smoking cigars can have the effect of reducing your appetite. I often smoke a cigar when I get hungry to lessen hunger pangs or make it easier to eat less. And it works. It’s a natural diet supplement!
