Pinar Del Rio 1878 Cubano Especial Capa Madura

A new blend from Abe Flores and Juan Rodriguez that fits into that budget consciences area for cigar smokers. From the looks of this stick you would never guess the price was as low as it is. Just a gorgeous presentation from the beautiful wrapper to the classy 2-tone dark, double band. From what I […]


Oliva Serie G Natural

Back again for a “Humidor Staple” review with another Oliva product for you. This time it is the Oliva Serie G Natural Toro. This stick comes in at 6″ x 50 and is a great looking specimen. Like the O, the G has Habano seed binder and filler but sports a Cameroon wrapper. The value […]


La Flor Dominicana Air Bender

La Flor introduced the Air Bender earlier this year and the hook is that they are intense, sophisticated, and powerful. Not sure there is all that much difference between intense and powerful but I digress… The Air Bender comes in six sizes and today I have for you the 5″ x 50 Matatan. The blend […]


Rocky Patel Sun Grown

Continuing with the “Humidor Staple Series” that started with the Oliva Serie O, I have for you another cigar that finds its way into a lot of people’s humidors. The Rocky Patel Sun Grown is one of the cigars that hooked me on this hobby. As you will see in the video, things have not […]


Oliva Serie O

Today I am kicking off a new series of reviews that I am calling the “Humidor Staple Series.” In the ongoing attempt of all forms of cigar reviewing; whether it be magazines, blogs, etc.; we are always trying to get the reviews of the new stuff out there as soon as possible. While this is […]

Avo Limited Edition 2010

Well, I’m back! This week I have the Avo LE 10 for you. I was lucky enough to attend one of Avo’s few events and I picked up a box of these and have been enjoying them ever since. According to the Avo website…”Avo Uvezian’s new birthday creation is a cigar that no aficionado would […]


Graycliff 1666 Pirate

Today a have for you a stick that seems to show up in every sampler pack ordered from the big online sellers. I accumulated a bunch of these sticks when I was in that on-line buying phase and although I rarely buy on-line anymore, I built up a nice stash of smokes when I did. […]


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 […]


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. […]
