Four Kicks Robusto

I have been traveling for what has seemed like a month, but in reality on 5 days. We have driven from Seattle to Missouri and not had a chance to post for a few days, but this doesn’t mean I haven’t enjoyed a few great cigars along the way. I received this “Four Kicks” Robusto…

El Gran Robusto by Don Lopez

The Don Lopez Toro turned out to be a great cigar for this cold walk. I had just received these from Yunior Lopez in the mail and couldn’t wait to give them a try. The flavor profile was fantastic, very smooth. The best way to describe this cigar is a mocha. It is creamy 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…
