“Smoked Up” No.72

I know one thing, it is getting hot in south Mississippi! I can see my cigar choosings getting smaller in size and my pool time getting longer. The nights are in the low to mid 80s, no breeze and high humidity. So, every occasion I get to smoke indoors I am! One occasion this week […]


“Smoked Up” No.61

The past week has been a quite an interesting one to say the least. Last week at work, we finally started seeing the light at the end of the tunnel as to being caught up. Then on Saturday, one of my good friends called me up needing my help. I won’t go into too many details, […]


Sublimes

Today I’m smoking a cigar that until recently wasn’t sold outside of South Florida. The Sublimes has been in production since 2004, and only recently is in national distribution. These cigars are rolled in Little Havana, FL and feature a blend of Nicaraguan and Ecuadorian tobacco. For this review I smoked the Double Robusto, but […]


Arturo Fuente Rosado Gran Reserva R52

Fuente released a new cigar line in December 2009 with a special rosado wrapper. This new wrapper comes from the second or third primings from the Oliva tobacco farm in Ecuador. These wrappers are then aged for 8 to 10 years before being rolled with a Dominican binder and filler and then set to age […]


Padilla Cazadores Robusto

The Padilla Cazadores was released this year at IPCPR with much less fanfare than its sister the Dominus. While the Dominus was promoted as a full body powerhouse that was full of flavor, not much was mentioned about the Cazadores. The Cazadores has a much lower price tag than the Dominus at about half the […]


Rocky Patel 1961

Rocky Patel has a new factory in Nicaragua, the Tabacalera Villa Cuba, S.A, and the first cigar to be made in this factory is the 1961. This cigar was created to celebrate Rocky’s birth year and features an Ecuadorian grown Habano wrapper. The first thing I noticed about this cigar was the incredible amount of […]


My Father Cedros Deluxe Cervantes

This week I’m reviewing the My Father Cedros Deluxe Cervantes. These cigars were graciously given to me by @BigABoyd to review. Thanks Aaron! These cigars are a subset of the regular My Father line in two size that aren’t in the regular line: Eminentes – 5 5/8 x 46 (corona gorda) Cervantes – 6 1/2 […]


Perdomo Lot 23 Natural Robusto

Today we have a blend from Tabacalera Perdomo.  Perdomo’s Lot 23 is a blend of Nicaraguan tobaccos from Esteli.  What is unique about this blend is that the filler and binder tobaccos are all harvested form the same farm known as Lot 23.  The tobaccos from this farm were harvested and aged for four years […]


La Aroma de Cuba Edicion Especial No. 3

A while back Ben did a review of the Ashton product La Aroma de Cuba. Originally Ashton had two lines in the La Aroma de Cuba stable manufactured by two different factories. The original line that Ben reviewed was made in Honduras and the blend I have today, the Edicion Especial, is made in Nicaragua […]
