Jordan Alexander III Corojo Robusto

The Jordan Alexander III Cigar Company from the outside looks to be quite a new company on the shelves. In fact, they have been around since 2013 and that is when they released a corojo cigar called “The Legend”. This Spring is when they introduced the Jordan Alexander III Corojo which is said to replace the […]

“Smoked Up” No.73

We made it past another Friday the 13th and the rare “Strawberry Moon”. On Friday, I hung out with my friend at the tattoo gallery she was working at. I ended up getting another tattoo, but nothing major. This time it was a rabbit’s foot with a “13”. I call it my “unlucky rabbit’s foot.” I […]


“Smoked Up” No.66

Getting back the somewhat usual smoking routine this past week. I enjoyed a few more cigars and didn’t have to help my buddy move (again) this past weekend. I had planned to take the family to an Easter event, but the Misses’ hip was bothering her and there was no sense in aggravating it anymore […]


J. Fuego Origen (Lancero)

When I first heard that the Origen would be released in a lancero I got pretty excited. I’m a sucker for lanceros, and considering my prior experience with the Origen Toro I figured the new vitola would be a treat. So now I’ve had the opportunity to smoke a handful of these cigars and think […]


El Tiante Corojo

Today Brian and I are sitting down together again to review a cigar for you. This time we’re firing up the El Tiante Corojo Churchill from Hall of Fame Pitcher Luis Tiant. These cigars are rolled in Nicaragua and are wrapped in a Corojo wrapper. These cigars are reasonably priced at approximately $6.00. Normally I’d […]


Illusione Epernay Le Elegance

In 2008 Illusione released the limited edition ECCJ to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the European Cigar Cult Journal. This cigar was pretty popular, but like all limited edition cigars they are nearly impossible to find these days. So in 2009 Dion Giolito released the Epernay, which is based upon the ECCJ blend. The Epernay, […]


Don Pepin Garcia Blue Invicto

We’ve done a lot of Don Pepin’s stuff over the past year but for some reason we never did the blue label. For those veterans of the site, you know that Pepin’s Black label still ranks as my all time favorite smoke. So lets see how this Blue Label compares. Don’t forget to get involved […]


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 […]
