La Riqueza

The La Riqueza by Tatuaje. The look of this cigar after opening the box brought back an old world feel. It’s a very toothy and rough wrapper and a few veins showing which tells me the filler is where the bang is at. These come in boxes of 10 and the price is great. After…

The Cigar Hammer continues

The cigar smoking hammer continues to drop and the limitations being placed on enjoying a good cigar are discouraging. The most recent location is in my backyard. It looks like Branson, MO has passed a horrible piece of legislation that will limit another freedom. Leave people alone! http://www.ozarksfirst.com/story/d/story/branson-board-of-aldermen-pass-smoking-ordinance/22063/CmeK1AiLwUux3Nz_jUTrfw

JFK’s cigar love affair.

  I found this to be an interesting read and thought I would share it here. Now I am going to light up one of my own Petit Upmann’s and relax. I would recommend you do the same and enjoy the history lesson. The only other President I think who has done this much for…

Jekyl Monster by Tatuaje

The newest monster by Tatuaje is the Jekyl and it is one tasty cigar. I cracked open the box as soon as they arrived which is not the norm for me. I usually let them set for a week or more, but I wanted to give these a try. I can definitely pick up just…
