Don Duarte Reserva Toro Grande

The Don Duarte Reserva Toro Grande is one tasty cigar. It is a bigger ring gauge than I usually smoke (6×60), but this cigar was well worth the venture out of my zone of regular cigars. This is a Nicaraguan puro from the Plasencia factory blended by Don Roger Duarte and the legendary Evelio Oviedo.The…


Padron 1964 Anniversary

This is the shortest and easiest review I have written.  Padron 1964 Anniversary Series,  is one amazing cigar! There is no reason that you shouldn’t have at least 5 of these cigars in any humidor you own. This is a 10 Smoke Ring cigar, and possibly the industry standard all cigar makers would love to…


Alec Bradley Fine and Rare

Fine & Rare has been resting in my humidor for over 2 years. Sunday morning at the golf course meant it is getting ashed. When the cellophane is yellow it usually means it’s time to smoke what is inside. I have a few more of these from the same batch and they will definitely be…


Quality delivery

The mail man made my day. Quality of this magnitude needs no explanation.  If you haven’t tried a Padron 1964 Anniversary Maduro you should. The review for this cigar will be posted tomorrow after I enjoy 3 of them tonight.


Las Calaveras

The thunderstorms rolled in and I rolled out a new cigar to enjoy. The Las Calaveras by Crowned Heads. I had seen these start to pop up around the B&B and thought they looked great but no one really had any gouge on the profile. Well, I can say without a doubt this is a…


Kentucky Fire Cured by Drew Estate

Heard so much about the Kentucky Fire Cured cigar I had to try a few. I really didn’t understand the hype behind this cigar and still don’t after smoking three of them for a review. The flavor of the cigar is very odd to me, almost like too much liquid smoke on a steak.  There…


Nica Rustica by Drew Estate

The Nica Rustica by Drew Estate,  looks and feels like a throwback to old world cigars. The flavor is very modern.  The construction of the Nica Rustica is old skool,  rough wrapper with quite a few veins. The foot of the cigar is not well defined and the cap has a slight tail to it.…


Morning Cigars

To me there isn’t a better start to the day than a mild cigar with a cup of coffee. One of my favorites is the Perdomo Champagne,  it’s mild with just a hint of cedar and mixes well with you black and bitter coffee drinkers or the rest of you who enjoy foo-foo. Another great…


Son’s of Anarchy Robusto

This will be a short review.  Son’s of Anarchy Robusto,  tastes like it is rolled from the motorcycle seat of a fat biker after a trip back from Sturgis. Never bother with these, they are a gimmick by Black Crown cigars that hasn’t worked. I am giving this cigar, if you call it that 1…


Sosa Super Selection Torpedo

The Sosa Super Selection Torpedo has been resting in my wineador for a few weeks now and what better way to enjoy it than in a morning round of golf. This is a fabulous cigar with a dark maduro wrapper and an old world look and feel to it. The cigar was firm and a…
