“Smoked Up” No.40

The threat of Hurricane/Tropical storm/ Tropical depression/ rain shower Karen has come and gone. At one point, my hometown was in the bull’s eye of her path. Later on the path drifted to the east, the next thing I know, its about a 2hour hard rain shower. So much for that! The good thing is […]


“Smoked Up” No.33

Another hot and humid week is in my rear view mirror here in the deep south. We had a “tropical depression” come through this weekend. All it did was dump a good amount of rain and some wind; no damage on the homefront. I went to a RoMaCraft event at The Cigar Shop in Biloxi, […]


“Smoked Up” No.15

Another week has crept passed us, which means another issue of “Smoked Up”. This week’s issue is late due to some typical “Spring Cleaning” and unexpected truck mechanical issues… Like usual, I had a variety of cigars when I did get time to sit down for a smoke. From light and mild to bold and […]


“Smoked Up” No.13

Another week down, another issue of “Smoked Up”. This week has been pretty good, spring is upon us and the weather is nicer. The better weather means more smoking time and longer smoke breaks for me. I see myself grabbing larger ring gauged or longer lengthed cigars as the weather gets nicer. Once it gets uber hot […]


2010 Oliva Serie V Maduro Torpedo

This time of year is my favorite for many reason, but one reason is the release of the 2010 Serie V maduros from Oliva. The Serie V is on my all time favorite smokes and a special maduro version just gets my heart racing! I still have samples from each year just sitting and aging […]


Oliva Connecticut Reserve Double Toro

This week I’m reviewing a cigar from a line of cigar which I haven’t really found to my liking. Its from a cigar manufacture that makes one of my all time favorite cigars, Serie V, which is Oliva Cigars. When Oliva released the new Connecticut line, I wasn’t blown away by it like many other […]


Favorites: Connecticut

Based on a recent comment from Mark, I decided to do something a bit different this week and put up a list of favorites. These lists will be categorized by wrapper type and since the comment started when talking about the Camacho Connecticut, we’ll start there. To preface this list, there are a couple of […]


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 […]


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 […]
