Drew Estate Nica Rustica

I finally got my hands on one of these to try, the Nica Rustica by Drew Estate. I had been hearing good things about them from friends and I can see why now. The burn was sharp, the draw easy, and the flavor profile pretty smooth. There was just enough of a cedar flavor with…

Padron Principe

Tonight was a Padron kind of night, big day in my life. Retired from the Navy today and got confirmation of my next career.  Those kind of moments need quality, this Padron Principe delivered. The flavor, draw, burn and overall quality delivers all of them in big doses. This cigar rates 10 Smoke Rings and…

Man O’ War Armada

The cold weather couldn’t deter me from the sunny afternoon, I broke out a Toro Grande 6.5 x 56  Man O’ War Armada. I knew this would be a good hour to hour and half smoke. First, I would say AJ Fernandez makes some damn good cigars and he has continued to do so with the…

La Sirena Trident

The La Sirena Trident, for the Great American Smoke Out. The first thing I would like to say, is I wish I would have started smoking these a few months back when I was sent a 5’er of them. These are really an amazing cigar not to mention the artwork. The first thing you notice…

Padron Series 2000

Today was the first day I needed gloves on my cigar walk. I chose the Padron Series 2000 for this chilly afternoon. I would like to say this is one hell of a cigar not even mentioning the bargain you can usually find these for, around $5 almost anywhere. The first thing I noticed with…

Nomad Cigars S-307

I had a package waiting for me when I finished my 2 hours of work, the S-307 by Nomad cigars had arrived and needed to be sampled. I really enjoy a box pressed cigar and this Toro sized treat looked tasty. The cigar felt firm and the pre light draw was just a little peppery.…

Tatuaje Miami Regios

Today’s dog walk was gonna be a cold one, so I chose a great cigar by Tatuaje to warm me up. This Miami Regios was a nice cigar that really got my interest even more engaged with the whole Tatuaje line again. The pre light draw was perfect, which is expected from the rollers at…

La Palina Classic

Tonight’s cigar is the La Palina Classic. The cigar is a bit of an odd shape, little bigger in ring gauge than usual but still very well constructed. The aroma pre light is definitely a leathery spice. The dry draw is very smooth and I think it will burn great. The first third of the…

Cabal Short Robusto

I was given a Cabal by a friend the other night and I enjoyed it so much I purchased a box. The Cabal Short Robusto is one awesome cigar. The size is what I enjoy for these shorter colder afternoon dog walks. This is a perfect 30 minute cigar, but it doesn’t lack in the…

Torcido

I had the pleasure of smoking a few of these in my past travels through a shop in Springfield, MO and thought I had smoked all of them but lucky for me I found one in the back of my humidor. This is the Torcido in a Robusto size, made exclusively at http://torcidocigars.com/blog/. I really have…
