Cigar Review: Cuban Stock Royal Selection

One thing I think every cigar smoker should do is venture out to different cigar shops. Staying true to one shop locks you into the choices that owner makes for his humidor. Sure a good shop will listen to its customers, but your still pretty much locked in. This past week I ventured to a [...]
