Montecristo New York Connoisseur Edition

Montecristo released a special cigar last year just for the New York market.  It is a specially blended large 6 x 60 boxed pressed toro that is as big as the New York City skyline itself.  Available only in the state of New York, this cigar features a rich Ecaudorian Habano wrapper with the binder […]


La Sirena The Prince

Released this year at IPCPR in New Orleans, La Sirena was relatively unknown before the show.  I met Brand Manager, Arielle Ditkowich, at the Miami Cigars booth while talking to Nestor Miranda.  There was a buzz at the show about Arielle’s new cigar line so I was eager to try it.  Alas, I left there […]

Quick Ash: Cabaiguan Petite

Hey folks! Back with a “Quick Ash” review for you this week and today I have the Cabaiguan Petite from Tatuaje. I reach for these sticks when time is limited and I need to get away for a short time. I look for small cigars that carry the full gambit of flavor and complexities of […]

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 […]


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 […]
