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 […]


Quick Ash: Tatuaje Petit Tatuaje

In my search for a great “lunchtime” cigar, I have tried many different “small” cigars from multiple manufacturers. In the beginning I often ran into the same issue when trying these smaller vitolas. Most of the time I really enjoyed the blends in the larger standard formats but felt there was usually something lost in […]


Don Pepin Garcia Cuban Classic 1952

Today I’m reviewing the Don Pepin Garcia Cuban Classic 1952, and I’m lucky enough to do so with my grandfather, father and two uncles. This video was recorded becuase of the suggestion of my wife; and for what it’s worth, I think she had one hell of an idea. This may not be the most […]


Cheap Ash: Casa Fuego Toro

The Casa Fuego is a budget friendly stick from the maker of the well received J. Fuego Delirium, Grand Reserve Corojo No. 1, and the new 777 Corojo that Ben recently reviewed here. It is a Nicaraguan Puro rolled in Honduras. From what I can gather, this line is exclusive to Cigars International and they […]

ECCJ stands for European Cigar Cult Journal to celebrate their 15th Anniversary. Those of you who listen to Dogwatch Cigar Radio are probably familiar with Colin Ganley who writes for […]


Cheap Ash: Padron Londres Maduro

This week I have a wallet friendly smoke for you. The Padron Londres is part of the regular line from Padron. According to the Padron website: “All tobacco in this line is sun-grown habano that is aged for a minimum of two-and-one-half years. Every cigar in this line is available in natural and maduro wrapper. […]


Viaje Oro

Produced by Casa Fernandez, the Viaje Oro is a Nicaraguan Puro. It comes draped in a dark and oily Corojo 99 Cafe wrapper. This cigar produces a load of great full-bodied and complex flavors. Although these cigars are full-bodied, I think there is a mellow characteristic to the smoke that will make it more palatable […]


Preliminary Thoughts: Viaje Oro

  Viaje cigars are produced by Casa Fernandez, the same company that produces the JFR (Just For Retail), are Nicaraguan puros rolled in the traditional cuban style.  This small boutique brand has a limited yearly production, however, they produce quality products.
