They say the most important element in comedy is timing. I endeavor to apply a certain topical relevance to my reviews, and bring them to you when the timing is most appropriate. Unfortunately this isn’t always possible.

I’ll admit, I did receive these cigars in adequate time to bring them to you in a topical and timely manner, but as regular readers will note, I’ve been on a little forced hiatus lately. Faced with the decision to wait until a more suitable time or to bring them to you now, I opted for the latter: these cigars just won’t wait.

Arsen Pink for Men

Maker: Arsen Cigars, Santiago
Filler: Dominican

Draw/Volume/Strength:
0-+2 / +1-+2 / 3

Editor’s Note: October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To highlight this important cause, Arsen Cigars is donating 10% of October sales of Arsen Pink for Men to Breast Cancer Foundations.

The Cigar Sasquatch cannot pull off wearing pink. Some men can, but it just doesn’t work for me. It’s not an issue with masculinity, it has nothing to do with any insecurities, and there’s no other meaning that can or should be attached to that statement. I just don’t wear pink.

That being said, there are a great many things which are pink in color that I’m quite fond of. Strawberry yogurt, for example. And I’ll fight anyone who says that pink is not the best flavor of Starburst (yes, when it comes to Starburst, pink is a flavor). And of course, who doesn’t love pigs? The work they’re doing with bacon is second-to-none!
