Cuba Aliados Miami Toro Viejo

The Cuba Aliados Miami is a new cigar blend that Reyes Family Cigars has unveiled this year to much anticipation. Created by Rolando Reyes Sr. and Carlos Diez, this blend is somewhat of a departure from their regular line as it is rolled in Miami in small batches. I asked Frankie Santos of Reyes Cigars […]


ITC 10th Anniversary by Rocky Patel

I’m back with a quick review of the ITC 10th Anniversary by Rocky Patel Cigars that I recorded 6 or 7 weeks ago. The ITC is the first Nicaraguan Puro from Rocky Patel. I’ll be back on Friday with another review and an update on all that’s been going on with me.

Viaje Oro

Produced by Casa Fernandez, the Viaje Oro is a Nicaraguan Puro. It comes draped in a dark and oily Corojo 99 Cafe wrapper. This cigar produces a load of great full-bodied and complex flavors.

San Cristobal De La Habana La Punta – LLN SET 2003
