Cigar Review: Camacho Connecticut

It was just a matter of time til Camacho came out with a Connecticut shade wrapper when Davidoff purchased the company a few months back.

Cigar Review: VegaFina

Cigar Review: Cuba Aliados Miami

After being unable to smoke for a week due to being sick I wanted to smoke something that would not have a lot of smoke so I opted to go with a Lancero. It is very rare that I will review a cigar based on one stick, and it would never happen after being sick [...]

Sunday Links & Contest

The last 30 days for me have been difficult to say the least. It all started when I threw my back out in Philadelphia that led to a nasty bout of sciatica. Then this week I came down with the flu. It was so bad that I had to get tested for the Swine Flu [...]

Cigar Review: CAO MX2 Box Press

I managed to get my hands on the CAO MX2 Box Press this weekend and being a fan of CAO Cigars this was on the top of my list of cigars I wanted to review. It amazes me how much a box press can change the flavor profile of a cigar. The Brazillia and the [...]
