Cigar Review: Rocky Patel Vintage 1990

I ran into the Rocky Patel representative today and she gifted me with the Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 after I mentioned I just reviewed the 1992 this past week. So I figured I would continue the vintage trend and cross this one off my list. Cigar: Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 Size: 5.5 x 50 (Robusto) [...]

Cigar Review: Davidoff Reserva 12

A friend in a cigar shop I spend some time in gifted me with today’s smoke, the Davidoff Reserva 12. It amazes me how often someone will gift me a cigar, but I am totally floored when it is a cigar of this nature. Five different filler tobaccos were used to produce Davidoff’s Reserva 12 [...]

Cigar Review: Rocky Patel 1992

It’s hard to believe that 10 months into that I have yet to review the Rocky Patel Vintage 1992. One of my first go to smokes, I lost my way and started smoking new stuff every time I lit up. Today I decided to take a trip down memory lane. While I prefer the [...]

Cigar Review: Arturo Fuente Between The Lines

The Arturo Fuente Between The Lines is a rare smoke. Not many stores get them and they usually fly off the shelf. I came across two of these cigars via a trade with a great brother of the leaf on twitter by the name of Matt. The cigar is also an example of cigar websites [...]

Cigar Review: Gran Habano Cabinet Selection

I picked this cigar up last week in Philadelphia and it was the first time I saw them in a B&M. I have seen them on-line, and I guess because of that most people do not carry them. However with Pennsylvania currently having no cigar tax they can get away with cigars that are usually [...]

Cigar Review: Don Lino 1989 Maduro

I was gifted today’s cigar from the guys at Ashes Tobacconist in the Bronx, NY. As a fan of the Don Lino Africa line, I was curious to try this smoke which I have never seen before. It is always nice to come across a brand that is new to me even if it has [...]

Soon the days of shuffling about and finding a place to smoke in the cold will be gone and that can’t happen soon enough. I don’t know [...]

Cigar Review: Davidoff Short Perfecto

In the summer of 2006 these were my favorite cigars to smoke. Sitting outside at the Tiki Bar at the Elks club smoking a Short Perfecto and sipping on a drink was the perfect way to relax for me. Sometime in the past couple of years Davidoff quietly changed the blend of these cigars switching [...]
