Pete Johnson posted a picture on Facebook of what looks to be a new blend in the Surrogates line of cigars. The new cigar is named “Satin Glove”. From the looks of the photo, the cigar is of a maduro or dark habano wrapper. The same “Surrogates” second band is there with the main band saying […]


Cigar Journal- 1

Time has not been on my side for a number of months now… as I’m sure you’ve been able to tell by my lack of posting. The good news, or maybe it’s bad news, is I’m getting my ass in gear and starting to prepare some fresh new content for your enjoyment. However, when I […]


Tatuaje Havana VI Hermosos

So yesterday I made the 2 hour drive to The Humidour Cigar Shoppe in Cockeysville, MD for a Tatuaje event. After five plus hours of smoking Tatuaje cigars I just felt like I should keep the streak going today and review one. I decided on the Havana VI Hermosos because I can’t get enough Corona […]

Chris’ Version of a Top 10

This time of year so many of the cigar blogs publish their Top 10 lists for the year. And although I see how these lists are beneficial, I personally don’t feel like I can create a single list. Honestly, there are just too many factors to consider. So, I decided to create two lists of […]


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 […]


La Riqueza Cabinet Petit Robusto

The Cabinet line featured round cigars instead of the original box pressed vitolas and features a few new sizes. The cigar is cloaked in a […]
