Balmoral 18 Anejo

The Balmoral 18 Anejo, this is a hard to find cigar to say the least. I managed to negotiate a few from a friend traveling back from the Netherlands, which is where this beauty began. The Balmoral 18 Anejo, features a Brazilian wrapper that has been aged 18 years thus giving the name Anejo 18.…

Illusione “Gigantes”

I am a huge fan of the Illusione line in general. The simplicity of the cigars combined with a consistent flavor really appeals to my narrow minded, opinionated, sharp witted palate. I have multiple boxes of the Rothchildes aging and really enjoy them very often. It seems to me the Illusione Gigante will be injected…

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…

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…

La Flor Dominicana Box press

You want “ligero”, we have “ligero”! This is one of the cases where you have a small package and a big explosion. I grabbed this little cigar for a dog walk this morning 5×48 box press thinking oh this will be a nice easy smoke to start the day, well that changed quick. I really…
