Cigar Review: Padilla Dominus

Ernesto Padilla, owner of Padilla Cigars, has made full use of Corojo 2006 tobacco to blend his new Padilla Dominus brand, a cigar that is made solely with this type of Nicaraguan-grown tobacco. The seeds were planted in 2006 in the country’s Jalapa and Estel√≠ regions before the crop’s harvest in early 2007. The final [...]

Cigar Review: Paul Garmirian Soiree

I get around to more cigar shops then some cigar reps do. Among my favorites is a shop I don’t get to as much as I used to. The shop located in Princeton, NJ is called A Little Taste of Cuba and is owned by the founder of Tobacconist U, Jorge Armenteros. The shop has [...]

Cigar Review: Cain F

The Cain F which stands for Fuerte is a special edition in the Cain series. These sticks are 82% ligero compared to the 77% ligero in the maduro line.

Cigar Review: Room 101 Cigars

An Invite For Friends…

Cigar Review:Padilla Cazadores

Cigar Review: Avo 80th Anniversary LE

I find myself digging deep into my humidor lately as I wait for some new releases to make it to my local B&Ms. Buried at the bottom of my humidor was the Avo 80th Anniversary Limited Edition belicoso.
