March 2010 Contest

It’s been a while since we’ve had a contest here at Nice Tight Ash, and it’s definitely time to put an end to that! The nice people at Drew Estate are providing a great prize pack.


Jameson Cigars and Rock Stone Coffee

I consider myself a coffee aficionado as much as I enjoy cigars. If you follow me on Twitter, you already know this. My go to coffee is by Black Dog Coffee Company as I’ve known the owner for many years from Cigar Weekly cigar forum. Also, I really enjoy Brian’s blends more than anything else […]


Press Release: Joya de Nicaragua Cabinetta Serie

Below is the meat and potatoes of a press release from Drew Estate about the Joya de Nicaragua Cabinetta Serie.  I’ve also included a couple pictures that accompanied the press release.  Not only do I think this makes for an interesting read, but I’m also foreshadowing a review that I’ll be doing in the next […]


Oliva Connecticut Reserve Toro

A while back I reviewed the Camacho Connecticut and discussed the other Connecticut that was entering the fray around the same time. Both of these sticks were marketing a fuller bodied smoking experience than your usual Connecticut wrapped cigar. Although I enjoy mostly full bodied sticks, I do enjoy a mid bodied cigar when the […]


Diamond Crown Maximus Robusto #5

The Diamond Crown Maximus was one of the first super premium cigars that came on the market near the end of the cigar boom. Made by Tabacalera A. Fuente for JC Newman in the Dominican Republic, it was a bolder version of the Diamond Crown line that was to appeal the rapidly growing full bodied […]


Padilla Achilles

I’ve been doing a little digging in my humidors lately, and as a result I’ve found some cigars that I either forgot I had, or haven’t had in a while. So is the case with the Padilla Achilles. The wrapper on this cigar is a wonderful caramel shade of brown and slightly oily. There is […]


5 Vegas Cask Strength

The 5 Vegas Cask Strength features a blend of tobaccos from 4 different countries: Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Honduras and Peru. These tobaccos were blended to create a medium to full-bodied cigar that’s full of flavor. But as always, I’ll give it a try and let you know what my take is. Just like many cigars […]


Quick Smoke: 601 Green Oscuro Corona

I am back with a quasi quick smoke. Although this is a bit longer than the 45 min lunch time smoke I enjoy, this is a good 55 minutes to an hour of smoking time that is perfect for when you don’t have that 1.5 hours of down time to enjoy a Toro or larger. […]


Chateau Real Maduro

Drew Estate is well known for their innovative approach to infused cigars, and because of that their traditional lines of cigars don’t get very much attention. At least that’s my opinion. So today I’ll be smoking the Chateau Real Maduro, which is comes with a maduro wrapper from San Andres, Mexico. The Chateau Real is […]


Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve Corojo

For whatever reason good cigars fall in and out of my smoking rotation all the time. I’m not completely sure why that happens, but it probably has something to do with all of the great cigars that are out there to try. Much is the case with the Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve (OWR) Corojo. […]
