Arturo Fuente 8-5-8 Flor Fina

The time has come to ramp back up the cigar reviews. I am getting back to basics and covering cigars every humidor should have in it as old faithful go to cigars. Let’s start this with one of my regular rotation cigars that are quality without breaking the bank and you will never be snickered…

Ezra Zion Honor Series

I have had a bit of a hiatus from cigar reviews with some personal life events happening and also the ice and snow storms interupting my hearty appetite for a good cigar. I received a very amazing sampler in the mail from my good friend and cigar legend Gary Griffith of Emilio Cigars. Today’s smoke…

Viaje Honey & Hand Grenade “The Shank”

The Viaje Honey & Hand Grenade “The Shank”. I have been setting on these for almost 3 years. Thought I would crack open the box and see what age has done to these. Upon unwrapping the beautiful but useless tin foil the aroma is definitely a grassy and earthy smell. This is a cold day…

Alec Bradley Mundial

The morning starts early with a quick jaunt through the neighborhood for a wake up dog walk. This morning things were a little slower since there is about an inch of fresh snow, so I thought I would grab a cigar and a cup of coffee to enjoy. I blindly reached into the humidor and…

AKA Solace Destiny Corona (6×44)

American Kick Ass Cigars, not sure about the name but I will give them a try strictly on the recommendation of the B&M. I picked these up at www.opendoorcigars.com for Poker Night. I am not one to venture too much into the boutique line, but will keep an open mind. First, I chose the Corona (6×44)…

La Aurora Untamed

La Aurora Untamed, this is something I would have probably never picked up in the cigar shop. It looks different and the band just a little cheesy to me. Though after lighting this cigar and really letting it tell me the flavors, I will be after a few more of these soon. This is not…

Arturo Fuente Unnamed Reserve 2014 (6×60)

The Arturo Fuente Unnamed Reserve in a 6×60. A trip to Miami and this is what I planned to enjoy on the beach. I managed to slip away for a few hours in the evening and picked up a box of these from Neptune Cigars! A great shop with a magnificent selection and great service…

Davidoff Thousand Series 2000 Tubos

I will start by saying this was a gift from a friend (Thanks Jack). This is one of the best Davidoff cigars I have had. The aroma just from removing the cigar from the tube was instantly amazing. It reminded me of opening a fresh can of almonds. There was a hint of cedar with…

Padron 4000 Maduro

The Padron 4000 series Maduro in the Toro Vitola. I am not sure why I don’t see more cigar smokers pulling these out of the humidors either at home or in the local shops. First they are fantastic, secondly the flavor is deep and rich, and lastly they are cheaper than it’s more expensive 1926/1964…
