Win a box of Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial NE Edition CT

Alright! Happy Friday everyone. I’m gonna run a little contest today because I am so proud to have the Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial Connecticut New England Release at my Butthead’s Tobacco Emporium in Danbury, CT.

The Jaime Garcia R/E Connecticut is the Connecticut Shade brother of the current maduro version. This cigar smokes with the same profile of the maduro but finishes with a classic Connecticut creaminess that will surely please a broad range of smokers. It has been released in New England as a prerelease to about a dozen shops and says New England Edition on the box.

Simply put, you just have to comment on this post with something better than “My Entry” or “Thanks, Kevin”. Tell us your favorite review from our site and why you like that cigar. That will get you in for the contest for a box of Petite Robustos, a $120.00 value! We will gather all comments received by midnight 3/31/12 and draw on Monday 4/2/12.

Now obviously there is only going to be one winner. If you entered, you were probably interested in this new cigar from My Father Cigars. Well, we have them @buttheads and you can call to order them. We will quote you prices on the phone 203-792-4327 or email me here. I just dropped a box in the mail to Lindsay Heller this morning so call and order before they are gone!

Happy Friday! and Happy Posting!


Kevin & Peter

Update: as of 8:00am 3/31/12 there are 26 in to win the box! Thanks for posting!

    Love the appearance, love the flavors, love that EPC blended it, love that you gave it a 95.

  • Doogie

    kind of cheating, but i like the top 15 cigars of 2011. always fun to compare with what i think!

  • Paul Tyler

    July 9th, 2010 – a night with Guillermo Leon…very cool story…Guillermo sounds like a great guy…what a fun night that must have been for Barry…loved how he got Chelsea to call Barry to come back to the shop.  Based on the August 18th, 2010 review, I will assume it was his signature series they were smoking.  I had the pleasure of enjoying one of those last weekend…absolutely wonderful cigar…wish I would have been at Smoke Inn that July night.

  • Brett Bowersox

    Not a review but a preview. The Habanapalooza preview… my name in bold makes that article great,

  • Thebayratt

    My favorite review is of the Emilio Grimalkin.
    I like that cigar so much I bought a mixed box all of the sizes. So far, the robusto seems to be my favorite vitola. It almost has a very slight sweet undertone to it.

  • Bugbear

    The review of the Padilla Signature 1932 – it prompted me to buy two boxes of 2008′s i came across (I should have bought four). :)

  • Corey Zerbe

    Hands down for me it was the Epernay Le Monde full stop… Great stick great company.  I’m excited to try the CT version of this stick I have had the Maduro version  and really enjoyed it.  Thanks for the Contest can’t wait to win… haha

  • Jay Zahner

    The Jaime Garcia Reserva Especiale because I thought your review was spot-on. It wasn’t an overly sweet Maduro and its got a nice price tag, too.

  • kravnh

    My favorite review is of the Padrón 1964 Anniversary Maduro and pairing. That particular cigar was one of the first “premium” cigars I ever had (the Ashton VSG was the other), and 15+ years later, I still rank it in my top 10 cigars. I also liked the addition of a beer pairing, as I often drink beer with my smoke, and have found that some brews compliment the cigar, while others can clash, and ultimately detract from the enjoyment of the cigar. It was nice to read about how one beer interacted with the experience of the smoke.

  • Piperdoon

    Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial oking it when I found review… Spot on serendipity?

  • Jake

    Not so much a favorite review as a “thanks” for not turning this site into a marketing tool for Buttheads. I appreciate that. And, keep up the great work; both you and Peter.

  • Thetech207

    Rocky Patel Vintage 1992, you mention black cherry, I get cherry cordial, it’s delicious!

  • acigarsmoker

    Thank you! It will never be a marketing machine exclusively for Buttheads, but it does pay the bills! Our goal is to share the best info around with everyone. One thing is certain, we are all about having the most places to enjoy cigars and support all cigar shops! The government is the enemy BOTL!
    Thanks for supporting us!



  • Jyow617

    Gotta say, the review of the Room 101 OSOK is one I appreciate. I’ve read a few that were not quite as favorable that have kept me from getting one. You guys review makes me confident that its worth a try. Thanks!

  • acigarsmoker

    We have been less than thrilled about some of Matt’s other releases, but this was an overall great smoke. The packaging and theme work well. We hope you enjoy it like we did!



  • Allskrewedup

    I really enjoy your reviews. I tried each of the Top 15 Cigars of 2011 list you put together & was very pleased. Found several gems I wouldn’t of tried otherwise. Thank you.

  • Swede214

    Sept.7th.2011, CAO OSA-SOL   The taste for myself was very good, it had a lot of smoke, got a little strong at the end for me, still good. Will smoke it again. P.S. thanks for the contest.

  • Michael Gravito

    The Torano Single Region. I picked up a few of them and fell in love and I couldn’t quite figure out what I was tasting. Mocha. I read the review and it hit me. You nailed it.

  • Keith Hollar

    Thanks for the contest! My favorite review was the Pedro Martin Fiera.

  • phil panzarino

    never tried them sure would like to sample some ! thanks for the contest!

  • Kenno1

    I got to smoke the original release Jaime Garcia at a new release party 2 years ago at Tampa Humidor.Pepin was there and rolled a freshie for me. Would like to compare this new release and post an opinion.
    Thanks for putting this on Kev.

  • Ron Fedele

    I just lit up the maduro version of this stick. Fired up the computer and lo and behold.  You got a hidden camera on me. This is probably one of my favorite ” I only have a half hour” cigars. Can’t wait to try the Dr wrapper, will probably be a great wake waiting on the coffee stick.


  • foozer69

    ashton vsg review  was spot on for me, thanks for the contest!!!

  • Ando

    My Favorite Review(s) – The Pairings.

    Cigars are personal, & so is the experience. I don’t have the time or resources to try them all. That is your job.

    I can’t tell the difference between white & black pepper in the cold draw – but I tell my friends this info before we light, & now I’m getting offers to be the cook at the next BBQ. There is a fine line between stealing & borrowing.

    The pairings are the Bee’s Knees. “Oh, you like that maduro? Try this single malt with it….” I get stared at like a Shaman from the Equator.

    Thanks for what you do & the passion that you do it with. I have passed on many cigars, & bought others based on your recommendations. Keep it going.

    Best Regards,


  • Bcull01

    What a great idea!!! Will be down very soon.

  • Aron

    I can’t say I have a favorite review as most of them tend tend to be spot on!

  • Mark

    Of your more recent reviews my favorite is the Padron 1964 Anniversary Maduro review. My favorite for the simple reason that I love this cigar and your review is right in line with my findings!


  • acigarsmoker



  • Charlie Baranyai

    I’d have to go with the Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial as well.  The review was spot on as I went to see George at Hudson Valley Cigars and it hit the spot……. :->

  • Dave

    How can I pick one review, there are so many sticks to enjoy.  I always look forward to the Cigars Smokers Journal in my e-mail.  I suppose any of the My Father reviews would be high on my list.  Mostly I trust the reviews to guide me when looking for a new blend to try since the reviews are always right on when describing a specific cigar and it’s personality.  My Bucket List includes a trip to tour the My Father factory some day.  Thank you Cigar Smokers Journal, keep up the great work.

  • irratebass

    Thanks for the contest.  Kevin & Peter, I am going with the
    Perdomo Estate Seleccion Vintage 2002 Sun Grown and reason is I was recently at a Perdomo event and unfortunately I didn’t meet Nick, but I had the chance to pick up this sampler, they are resting in my humi and your review shows me what I have to look forward to. Thanks for all you do.

  • acigarsmoker

    We love Glenna and George! If you are ever near Newburgh, NY, Hudson Valley Cigars is a must stop!

    Thanks for commenting Charlie



  • Nicko

    What I really like about this site is that I can pretty much type in any cigar that I want to know more about and find that here.
    I have purchased many cigars based on the recommendation here and I look forward to continuing to do so.

  • MoBarbq

    Tough, but I think my favorite so far was the one for Saint Luis Rey Serie G, thought it was dead-on. This was one of the first cigars I bought when I started smoking cigars again a few years ago, and I think it is a great one for beginners. It was in a list of cigars for beginners, as a matter of fact. Keep up the good work.

  • Jb2jb

    I think your site is by far number one.You guy’s allways have great reveiw and are super informitve.keep up the great job.It’s a shame you don’t have a magazine I would buy it.

  • Totalchaosb

    Arturo Fuente Anejor Robusto,
    Wow! A honest review, like the anology the diference between, heaven and hell. I guess it’s expecting extraordinary and getting mediocrity.Nice to see that every choice , is not all cherry and cream. Makes for a more believable review. Not that this is a bad cigar, just for a lighter venue.

  • Kasnider

    Fellas, i am a huge My Father fan — love the Le Bijou SE corona gorda — and would be delighted to win these. Thanks for the contest and the site.


  • J.A.S.

    When “reviewing” a review I try to get a feeling if I would the cigar being reviewed. In this case the Emilio Grimalkin left me wanting to smoke one of those right away! I have some on the way, so I had to wait…

    great site and great reviews in general; I appreciate honesty and the fact that you are keeping and improving what Barry started.

  • acigarsmoker

    Barry is the bigger than life version of what I have done for the last 25 years! I have built my Buttheads Tobacco from the ground up in the last 12 years to one of the best shops in the country.

    Thank you for your compliments. From the first time Barry and I met, we clicked and I am honored that he was willing to part with his baby and that I can carry on what he started.

    We are a no nonsense blog for the enjoyment of cigars. It is based on our opinions and we try to be relevant to other smokers. Our daily traffic and the feedback we get seem to show this.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart that our we have feelings in common with so many other smokers. It is truly flattering!

    I am also blessed with being joined by Peter and his palate has made this “job” so much easier to find new content and bring it you everyone in such a timely manner.

  • Vkhalatyan

    To whom it may concern, my name is Vrezh. I wanted to purchase The Rocky Patel Renaissance; fortunately, I read your review and made a great decision. It’s funny how almost all the review sights say the same exact things. However, this sight was different from the rest. Thank you for all the hard work and helping us aficionados.

  • Chris McCann

    I’m going with the Padron 1964 Anniversary Maduro review and pairing. I’m a huge fan of the 1964 Annivesary series as well as stouts. The review and pairing was especially interesting and insightful. I’ll definitely have to trying some of my own pairings in the future.

  • @nwbonick

    I enjoyed the review of the Anejo Shark.  It is definitely in my top 10 cigars and found my notes similar to yours.

  • NJ_Navy_Chief

    So many good cigars out there it is tough to choose.With a gun to my head I would have to say a 1964 PAM or almost anything Pepin. But as for the subject of this giveaway I am a huge My Father fan, especially the Jaime Garcia blend. I have had the Robusto and Petite Robusto and they are both superior smokes. Your review Pairings really hit home, I am a “noob” by most standards but in 2 short years my palate has matured and I can appreciate the sutle flavors of specific cigar blends along with different foods and beverages. Keep up the great work. Oh and by the way I have plenty of room in my newly converted Gunidor! :)

  • Cigarjockey

    Being I’ve never had a O.S.O.K your review really stoked my interest in getting one.

  • Dykhuis Jeff Tatuaje Regio is my favorite go to cigar when i can find it, i think it just has that classic cigar flavor.

  • Jason Schulz

    Your review of the Oliva V Lancero is one of my favorites. I agree it’s a slow starter, but really makes up for it in the finish! I appreciate your comprehensive reviews and your site is my go to when I want to find a new stick! Thanks!

  • Captbilly

    Great contest. I’ll be honest I have not been to the site much since Barry left.
    But I did enjoy the review of the saint Luis ray serie g. Great cigar that does not get enough attention

  • Oge72

    Thanks for the shit butthead

  • Oge72

    Sorry… correct …meant..thanks for the shot

  • Spugni

    Loved the Padron 1964 maduro pairing and review. I’m going to give them a try.

  • Gotbasscaraud

    I totally agree that this is Matt’s best cigar to date. Great review on the osok Pete,hope to see you both in my neck of the woods soon for some double d’s

  • Wilson

    I’ve enjoyed the Jamie Garcia Reserva Especial in the robusto and the 660 size.
    Both drew beautifully with a sweetness of
    Carmel and leather. The smaller size having
    a slightly stronger taste. Very nice smoke.
    With that said, I’m not sure if this is the
    NE edition Ct. I didn’t see a picture for
    positive I.D.

  • Spm387

    Will have to say my favorite review so far was the tatuaje black, such a great smoke in a tiny package.

  • Fuzbruce

    I liked the Comacho triple m review except it caused me to buy a box Normally I only buy fivers or samplers

  • Lloydlad

    I’ll go with the Padron 1964 Anniversary Maduro. I have dozens of good mid-range priced cigars and I’d like to smoke more of the higher end premiums. Haven’t smoked anything from the My Father line yet, either, so this would be a nice contest to win.

  • dave b

    I always enjoy reviews on cigars I haven’t tried, they guide me when looking for a new stick to try. I have also been enjoying the football ‘Pick the Winners”, though I have not been very good in my choices. The Journal has been a part of my cigar life for quite a while and I always enjoy it. Thanks for all the hard work.

  • peter

    No problem, we are just proud to help spread the word of the leaf!
