Lately I’ve felt like there have been a bunch of cigars that I’d wanted to review, but just hadn’t gotten around to. One of those cigars is the Prensado from Alec Bradley. This cigar made it’s debut in September of 2009, but it’s roots go back to 2006 when the Corojo leaf, that would one […]

Omar Ortez Puro Maduro

Today I’m reviewing the Omar Ortez Puro Maduro. I’d never smoked one of these cigars until two months ago when the box caught my attention at a local Tinder Box. The combination of a 60 count box and a band that wrapped around the foot of my cigar perked my attention, so I figured it […]
