Cigar Review: Joya De Nicaragua Antano 1970

As the winter approaches my smoking habits begin to change. I smoke a little less often and I tend to smoke cigars that are stronger then the ones I smoke in the summer. I am not really sure why I do this, but perhaps subconsciously I hope a stronger cigar will warm me up as [...]

Cigar Review: Liga Privada #9

It has been a while since I have been able to smoke a cigar for review as allergies this year have been particularly brutal for me in the Northeast (New York to be exact). From congestion to a cough to endless sneezing it has taken a toll on me. But this past week at an [...]

Cigar Review: Plasencia Reserva

Sometimes as a reviewer you have to smoke a cigar you just don’t want to. Case in point is today’s review which was part of the cigars Famous Smokes sent me. This cigar is labeled as being organic and cultivated in pre-Columbian farming techniques. To me tobacco is organic, the fact that someone needs to [...]

Cigar Review: Don Pepin Garcia Series JJ Maduro

I’ve had these cigars sitting in my humidors for a while and I kept putting off smoking them. Why I am not sure as it is a cigar that I was very much looking forward to smoking. Perhaps it is that not one local B&M carries them by me and I was worried I would [...]

Cigar Review: Arturo Fuente Don Carlos

With my buddy Joe heading overseas for work we decided to meet up yesterday for a quick smoke of a cigar. It was a last minute thing, and since I am no longer carrying cigars with me other then my morning smoke due to the lack of natural humidity outside I had to stop at [...]

Cigar Review: El Triunfador

I found out about this Pete Johnson creation on one of the cigar forums I visit. Nicknamed the Ghost Stick, it is of limited production and with me being the Pete Johnson whore that I am, I had to track these down and finding them was not easy. I located them eventually at Silo Cigars [...]

Cigar Review: Carlos Torano Casa Torano

Just a random thought to start with, right now I am craving apple cider. It is the fall, the leaves are changing colors and I am craving apple cider. Today’s smoke is from Carlos Torano, and lately I have become a fan of this cigar company. I’ll admit I am a bit of a boutique [...]

Cigar Review: Davidoff Maduro]

Today’s cigar has been out a couple of months and when I first bought them I was eager to review it. However the cigar had some strong ammonia notes which meant that it needed some aging time. So I let the cigars sit in the bottom of my humidor for about 6 weeks before trying [...]
