Cigar Journal: Miraculous Templar Cigars

I was contacted a while back by David Rafaeli about his new line of cigar the Miraculous Templar Cigars. There’s a story behind the name for the cigar, and instead of reiterating it here, I’ll just point to to their website. For this “review” I’ve only smoked one of each of the cigars listed below.

Cigar Expo 2011: Cigarnival

Berger & Argenti Clasico

A few months back I reviewed the Berger & Argenti Mooch which I really enjoyed. Shortly after trying the Mooch for the first time I began sampling the Clasico line. So a couple days ago I was digging though my humidor and found a couple of them in the bottom of a tray and decided […]


Tatuaje Havana VI Hermosos

So yesterday I made the 2 hour drive to The Humidour Cigar Shoppe in Cockeysville, MD for a Tatuaje event.

Cigar Journal: Cuban Stock

Recently I received a package from Cuban Stock Cigar Co. that included 4 cigars, all from various lines. Instead of doing a series of four “First-Impression” reviews I thought it would be interesting to write up what I’d characterize as journal entires for each of the cigars sent. In this post I’ll be taking a […]
