Cigar Review: Padron 1926 40th Anniversary

After suffering a sprain of my left foot last night I decided to drown my  pain in the Padron 1926 Serie, 40th Anniversary Natural cigar. The Padron 40th Anniversary Torpedo is part of the exclusive Padron 1926 line and is even more rare, with only 16,000 released every year. Cigar Aficionado made the Padron 40th [...]

Cigar Review: Rocky Patel R4

I recently made a small wager for a few cigars during the NFC Championship game. I wagered against The World According to Stew who took the Eagles, and I took the Cardinals. In a squeaker I managed to hang on and I collected a 5 pack of cigars. My friend Stew likes to search for [...]

CAO Elements at Barrister Cigars!

Last night I attended one of the best cigar events ever but earlier in the day I was unsure whether or not I would make it. With snow falling on a cold winter day and slowly turning to rain it was quickly becoming one big slushy frozen mess. As I pulled out of my driveway [...]

Cigar Review: Camacho Liberty 2007

Keeping up with the better late than never theme this week I decided to reach deep into my humidor and pull out the Camacho Liberty 2007 release. I enjoyed the Camacho Liberty 2008 release, although I thought it needed some age. So with 18 months on this beauty I decided to break open a coffin [...]

Cigar Review: Xikar Defiance Sentry

I was recently contacted by Xikar based upon a review I did of the Defiance a few months back. They offered to send me a 5 pack of cigars and a xikar cutter. I told them thank you but I am going to raffle it off for my loyal readers. So if you want to [...]

Cigar Review: Olor del Cibao

Today’s smoke comes courtesy of and according to their website; With a rather oily, dark maduro wrapper, these cigars are another favorite by Olor Del Cibao – a Dominican Republic Cigar Manufacturer. They are long leaf filler Dark Maduro Cigars. Because these cigars are 100% hand made in the Dominican Republic, they have a [...]

Cigar News…

First off I want to welcome everyone who saw my website mentioned in the newest issue of Smoke Magazine. The first issue that I am a panelist in has hit the newsstands. For those of you who are unsure of the issue, it is the one with Tucker Carlson on the cover and my ugly [...]

Cigar Review: Oliva V Maduro

Better late than never. I bought these limited edition cigars over at Barrister Cigars in Union, NJ and have been sitting on them ever since. The time to get them has gone and past, so posting this review might be pointless, unless Oliva decides to re-release them which I hope they do. The “initial” run [...]

Cigar Review: Illusione HL (Holy Lance)

Continuing my trend into lancero cigars I went into the humidor today and selected the Illusione HL by Dion Giolito. Will this lancero score big or will be it a dud? In my growing quest to jump into the lancero phase I bring this review to you, my readers. Cigar: Illusione Origin: Nicaragua Size: HL [...]

Cigar Review: Padilla Series ’68

Cigar Review: Los Blancos Criollo

Three days, three cigar reviews. I am in the midst of setting a new record for myself. Today’s smoke has been sitting in my humidor a few months and to be honest I did not want to smoke it for fear of liking it for reasons I rather not go into. However, I kept an [...]

Cigar Review: 601 Habano (Red Label)

My site has a lot of reviews for what people would call high end premium cigars. My tastes are expensive but with the downtrend in the economy I find myself smoking cigars that are less expensive. I guess this is a good thing since I got my first piece of hate mail the other days [...]

Cigar Review: Oliva V Lancero

First for starters let me say, a person with shaky hands such as myself should not be taking pictures of their cigar with the camera on their phone. They need to create a digital card reader that connects to your phones USB port so I can take good pictures and upload them to the my [...]
