Welcome back for Something Old, Something New Album Review Ep 3. Generally I do these about once a month, and if you read to the end of the last one you may remember I said I was going to review a couple of albums that are heavy on vibes. Albums that are good for smoking cigars to…and other stuff. But that will have to wait. We’re pivoting. I realized that it’s the end of the year. Because of that I’m going to do a special album of the year post. Since it’s something old and something new, I’m going to review my favorite album of 2020 and the year of my birth, 1981. First up, my favorite album of last year.
Loretta Lynn.. Pasty Cline.. Dolly Parton.., those names instantly bring to mind unforgettable songs and incredible voices that have stood the test of time. Make no mistake about it when I say that one day soon that list will include another name: Morgan Wade.
Released in 2013, the Nica Rustica El Brujito by Drew Estate is a tribute to Esteli (Nicaragua), its people, and the leaf that is grown there. Jonathan Drew of Drew Estates calls it ‘El Brujito’, meaning ‘Witch Doctor’ or to the locals of Esteli, ‘The Shaman’. Witch doctors are deep in the history of Esteli and in ancient times used tobacco in healing and ceremonial rituals. This is why every box of the Nica Rustica El Brujito has the symbol of The Shaman on the lid.

A Holiday Feast.. for Two!
This year was a little different, where I live we had strict rules for no outside visitors due to Covid-19. So my wife Danielle and I decided to smoke a Christmas feast for 2. I know, Christmas has come and gone, but I promise this spread will work on any holiday, or even just a nice meal on a weekend when you have time.
