I wanted to take this time and thank all our viewers for all their support over three and a half years but unfortunately we have not been consistent and getting up reviews.Its time that we say goodbye at the end of December 2013, I will be closing down Mike Stogies.I want to thank Rob,Mike, Christine, Gus & Joe and everyone else who helped make MikeStogies what it was and to all the fans I thank you for your kindness and your support and you always will be a special part in my life thank you. We will still do reviews til the end. Thanks to all the manufactures who have been so kind to us as well. Special thanks to our sponsors and friends without you it wasn’t possible to survive this long.

  3. Mike & Gang,
    I’ve been a reader/lurker for awhile, and an occasional commenter. Your easy to read reviews and style have been appreciated, and you will be missed. Safe travels into your future, and hope to see you out and about in the blogosphere with a favorite lit stogie!

  9. F off I have to already buy one of your other Partner in Crime reviewers a box cause my Flyers suck ass… you two are going to drain my whole Cigar budget this year LOL… Asshat!

  10. Aw, man! You guys will be missed. At least we’ll still have 411 and LLOTS, right? Thanks for all the great work and dedication that all of you put into this site. How about a Mike’s Stogies farewell show on Stogie 411 later in the year?

    I just want to say thank you my friend. You know this is my favorite site. The true, no bullshit reviews and your complete honesty drew me to your site. But more importantly I am most thankful to you for the people you have introduced me to both personally and through the site. I feel like I have a more enriched life be because of these new found friends. And you, sir, have been nothing but kind and magnanimous in the way you have treated me even when you didn’t know me from Adam. You are a friend and a gentleman and I am just being selfish by saying that I hate to see this site go. That ass Griff is getting a box of smokes off me again this year! Young Mike, grow strong my friend! Christine, keep those nails painted, you are a beautiful woman! Keep up the great work on 411 and I hope to cone and see you again sometime. Thank you for all that you do.

    • Tad what more could I say but that has touched me more then words can say and I am the blessed one. I wish you and your family well and I will be around on 411 for a long long time. Hope to see you soon my friend.

  12. Mike – I am so sincerely sorry to hear this. You know that I have appreciated your commentary/videos and have visited the site since day one. I wish you all at MikesStogies the best. See you at Stogie411.

    • John if we can’t be consistant with our reviews there no need to go forward. I am thankful for you and everyone who has come here. See u over 411 my friend.

  13. Its been weeks and I still think this stinks!!! (stomps foot on floor)….(ouch that hurts)

    • Corey I got one coming for you very soon and four more I’m working on. Hang tightly friend lol

  14. Mike –
    I haven’t been by here in far too long (little thing called ‘life’ kicked my ass) and now I come back to find this. I really hate to see you go but, I thoroughly enjoyed every minute spent here. As others have said, this was my go-to site for no bullshit reviews and news. I can’t count the number of cigars I tried (and mostly liked!) because of one of you or your minions reviews. You will be truly missed.

    – Jake

    • Thanks to all the nice comments, you guys truly rock and the kind words really mean the world to me and make it very hard to shut down but I made a promise to you all and my family that I must keep. We still have time together and more reviews to do til the end. Thanks so very much guys.
