The Catholic Man Show - Cigar 101 with Ultimo Cigars

Cigar 101 with Tomas Baldonado from Ultimo Cigars

Every once in a while, we break away from our normal routine on The Catholic Man Show to have a conversation with someone we think is a craftsman, expert in a field, and/or has an interesting story. Our guest, Tomas Baldonado from Ultimo, fits all 3 categories.

Many men aren’t sure where to begin when picking up their first stick. In this episode, we sit down with Oklahoma’s first and only licensed manufacturer of premium handcrafted cigars.

In the January edition of Cigar Aficionado Magazine, Ultimo Cigars was mentioned in an article entitled, “50 Factories in the U.S. that still make Cigars“.

Things you will learn:

  • Anatomy of a cigar
  • How to find a cigar that fits your palate
  • How to cut a cigar
  • How a cigar is made
  • Types of cigars
  • How to keep cigars fresh
  • How Tomas paired a cigar with a beer
  • and much more

About Ultimo Cigars:

Ultimo is a charming Micro-Factory located in the heart of Midtown Tulsa, Oklahoma, on the South-West corner of 31st Street and Sheridan. Home of the Scissortail Cigar, all our products are exclusively hand bunched and rolled by our master torcedor, Tomas. As we expand our business we will also expand our facility. We are looking forward to soon adding a large 1,250 cubic foot, walk-in aging room. Additionally, we will have the capacity to add 8 full time torcedores, producing up to 1,200 cigars daily. We welcome you to come enjoy an authentic, unique experience at Ultimo Cigars!

About our drink:

Oppidan Smoke + Sea is a combination of their 4 Grain Straight Bourbon and Solera Aged Bourbon mash bills, finished in French oak and peated Islay scotch barrels. The French oak adds structure and dark fruit notes while the Islay casks add a layer of smoke, earth, and sea to the already malty and chocolaty bourbon. Bourbon on the nose and front palette with a briny and peaty finish. Because this was batch number 2, we know that the whiskey was placed in either Ardbeg or Laphroaig barrels!

About the gear:

Although the first cufflinks appeared in the 1600s, they did not become common until the end of the 18th century. Their development is closely related to that of the men’s shirt. Men have been wearing shirt-like items of clothing since the invention of woven fabric 5,000 years BC. Although styles and methods of manufacturing changed, the underlying form remained the same: a tunic opened to the front with sleeves and collar.

By the middle of the 19th century the modern cufflink became popular. The shirt front, as well as collar and cuffs covering areas of the most wear, were made sturdier. This was practical but when clean and starched, collars and cuffs underscored the formal character of the clothing. However, they could be too stiff to secure the cuffs with a simple button. As a consequence, from the mid 19th century onward men in the middle and upper classes wore cufflinks. The industrial revolution meant that these could be mass-produced, making them available in every price category.

About our topic:

Auxilium Christianorum has 2 principal aims of the association: 1) To provide prayer for priests associated with Auxilium Christianorum so that their apostolate in driving out demons is efficacious. 2) To provide prayers for the members – priests, laity, family and friends – so that they are not adversely affected by the demonic.

About the Auxilium Christianorum:

The Church teaches us that it is divided into the Church Triumphant (which includes the members of the Church in heaven), the Church Suffering (this includes the members of the Church in purgatory), and the Church Militant (this refers to those members of the Church who are alive in this world). Because we are part of the Church Militant, we are in a spiritual warfare and this spiritual warfare requires that we recognize, as Saint Paul teaches us “For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places.” (Ephesians 6:12)

The members of the Auxilium Christianorum should always bear in mind the reality of our state as members of the Church living in this world. Despite St. Paul’s teaching, many Catholics do not take seriously their obligation to wage war against the demonic forces. It is, for this reason, the Association of the Auxilium Christianorum was founded.

About our drink:

We sipped on a little homebrew from Southeast Oklahoma. We were told it was a Choc beer. There are several discussions of the origin and composition of choc beer, but the one that seems most realistic is that the name was first applied to an alcoholic drink made by the Choctaw Indians from wild plants found in what is now Southeastern Oklahoma.

However, by the mid-1930’s, during the depression years, choc generally referred to any homemade, slightly alcoholic beverage. The drink was made from a variety of inexpensive raw materials, depending on availibility, and was usually barely palatable. In the Southwest, the fermenting liquid that dripped from ensilage and collected in the bottom of silos was sometimes drunk. It was also not unusual for people to collect spoiled fruit from grocery stores, put the fruit in a bucket of water, and leave it under their house porch until it fermented. Luckily, the process has been tweaked over the years so it is light, refreshing, and very drinkable.

About the gear:

“Behold your Mother” by Tim Staples

From the cross Jesus gave us his mother to be our mother, too: a singularly holy model, consoler, and intercessor for our spiritual journey. Yet most Protestants—and too many Catholics—don’t understand the role that God wants her to play in our lives.

In Behold Your Mother, Tim Staples takes you through the Church’s teachings about the Blessed Virgin Mary, showing their firm Scriptural and historical roots and dismantling the objections of those who mistakenly believe that Mary competes for the attention due Christ alone.

Combining the best recent scholarship with a convert’s in-depth knowledge of the arguments, Staples has assembled the most thorough and useful Marian apologetic you’ll find anywhere.

He also shows how all the Marian doctrines are relevant—even essential—to a salvific faith in Jesus. From her divine maternity to her perpetual virginity, from her Immaculate Conception to her Assumption, the Church’s core teachings about Mary are intertwined with the mysteries of Christ. In a word, Mary matters.

Read Behold Your Mother and find out just how much.

About our drink:

American Prairie™ Bourbon is named after the American Prairie Reserve, a group working to create the largest wildlife reserve in the lower 48 states.

High West Distillery is passionate about the American West’s natural beauty. That’s why we want to raise awareness of one of the most fantastic projects of our time: the American Prairie Reserve in northeastern Montana. This is an amazing effort to assemble the largest wildlife reserve in the lower 48 states. When stepping onto the plains of American Prairie Reserve, it’s easy to imagine the landscape as Lewis and Clark and Native Americans saw it, with thundering herds of bison, racing bands of pronghorn antelope and prairie dog towns dotting the horizon. When complete, the Reserve will be approximately 5,000 square miles; larger than Yellowstone, Yosemite, and Grand Teton National Parks combined. Go to americanprairie.org to learn how to visit and support this worthy cause.

Capable of running at speeds up to 55 miles per hour, the pronghorn antelope is North America’s fastest land mammal and performs the continent’s second longest land migration of more than 500 miles. Because of their love of travel, pronghorn require large areas of open and intact grasslands. Moreover, pronghorn populations have decreased 98% since the 1800’s due to habitat destruction. American Prairie Reserve helps pronghorn through its ongoing fence removal efforts and by conserving wildlife corridors.

Our American Prairie is a carefully crafted blend of straight bourbons at least 2 years old, (see highwest.com for technical details and sourcing.) making a great sipper and thoughtful person’s whiskey. High West supports the American Prairie Foundation, to find out more go to americanprairie.org

About the gear:

History of umbrellas is long and eventful. From the earliest appearances of simple palm leaf umbrella, long age of being synonym to wealth, to the modern time when is regarded as general item, umbrellas managed to intersect with our history in many interesting ways. Advancements in technology, changing tastes, and use in religion all enabled umbrellas to grow and prosper, becoming one of the principal ways we protect ourselves from rain. Protection from sun with umbrellas and parasols slowly faded out from fashion, which can be contributed to the rise in popularity of hats. Continue reading….

ShannonTM Irish Cream Liqueur has refined the craft of prior generations whose blending and distilling of aged malt and grain whiskey with premium Irish ingredient is considered a fine art. Embodying all that is best about Ireland, ShannonTM Irish Cream liqueur marries Ireland’s culture and its people to bring you a sip of great Irish hospitality.

Meyer gave an excellent homily at the E6 Men’s conference (video below), but what stood out to us was the way he celebrated the liturgy. He had over 20 alter servers at the Holy Mass and we found out that is not abnormal for him at his parish! So we chatted with him about a clothing line he wants someone to start, the Catholic Culture he is created, and his prayer life.

We want to thank Joe Yunger, Andrew Middendorf, and the whole team for inviting us to the E6 Men’s Conference. Keep up the great work!

Prayer life, virtue, and holiness: That’s what we went with for this week.

We originally planned to have John Sablan back on to re-record our episode. However, due to scheduling conflicts, he couldn’t be with us. So Adam and Dave had, probably a much needed, casual conversation on topics they have been considering throughout the week.

The Catholic Man Show - Complete My Joy: Bishop Thomas Olmsted

The Catholic Man Show - Complete My Joy: Bishop Thomas Olmsted

Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted – Bishop of Phoenix

Complete My Joy

While at the Catholic Men’s Fellowship of Phoenix Conference this past weekend, we were able to sit down with Bishop Olmsted to talk about his new Apostolic Exhortation, “Complete My Joy”.

In 2015, Bishop Olmsted wrote “Into the Breach” an Apostolic Exhortation to Catholic men and masculinity that has been a popular read all across the globe and has now been officially translated in 11 different languages.

The title “Complete My Joy” is taken from Philippians 1:27-2:2:

Live your life in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that, whether I come and see you or am absent and hear about you, I will know that you are standing firm in one spirit, striving side by side with one mind for the faith of the gospel, and are in no way intimidated by your opponents. For them this is evidence of their destruction, but of your salvation. And this is God’s doing. For he has graciously granted you the privilege not only of believing in Christ, but of suffering for him as well— since you are having the same struggle that you saw I had and now hear that I still have.  If then there is any encouragement in Christ, any consolation from love, any sharing in the Spirit, any compassion and sympathy, make my joy complete: be of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.”  (Philippians 1:27-2:2, RSV)

The document urges fathers and mothers to commit themselves and their families to a deeper relationship with Christ. “Fathers and mothers have the ability and responsibility to lead their families to holiness,” said Bishop Olmsted. “When I consider the blessings that God has bestowed on me in my life, second only to my Baptism into Christ’s family is the blessing of being raised in a faithful and united Catholic family. My parents, Patrick and Helen, committed themselves to God in the vocation to Holy Matrimony, and this provided stability for me to grow as their son and as a son of God.”

Bishop Olmsted released the apostolic exhortation on the Feast of the Holy Family, December 30th, 2018.

We want to thank Bishop Olmsted and the Diocese of Phoenix for the opportunity to discuss, “Complete My Joy,” and hope everyone will take the opportunity to read this gift.
