Arturo Fuente Anejo Shark #77

The second smoke of the day had to be a good one if it was going to follow the Ashton earlier. I dug a little deeper into the stash and pulled out one of my Arturo Fuente Anejo Sharks #77. This can be defined in two words, smooth and tasty! I have had these resting…


Why save a cigar?

Everyone has had a really good cigar in their humidor at one point, and I also have a few that I am cherishing but over the last couple of months I am realizing, why save it?? I am going to enjoy all of the cigars I have if I can. It annoys me when I…

La Jugada “Prieto” Robusto

The end to a busy Monday was a La Jugada “Prieto” Robusto provided to me by Mike Cavanaugh of donfranciscocigars.com As some of you will see on my reviews, I have my dogs out and usually walking the old abandoned railroad tracks. These dogs almost sense when I get a cigar, that it means they…

L’Atelier Maduro (MAD54)

The Sunday morning dog walk was going to be an adventure, so I chose a new cigar released by Pete Johnson and his brother KC Johnson (Tatuaje makers) at the 2013 IPCPR trade show. This is one of his latest cigars to be released and his first true Maduro cigar. Previously the “Surrogates” line had…


My Father El Centurion

Tonight’s smoke another “My Father” cigar, this one is the new El Centurion. Don Pepin, continues to make what he does best and that’s a great cigar. The cigar pre-light was flawless, the wrapper clean and no veins. The burn and draw were perfect, this is a milder smoke than the le Bijou and yet…


My Father Le Bijou 1922

The My Father Le Bijou 1922, by Don Pepin is one of my favorite cigars to date. This cigar has everything I want spice, pepper, even burn, great flavor and quality. Not sure how I can recommend this cigar in a clearer way. Go find this cigar, cut, light, enjoy and repeat. 10 Smoke Rings!


La Aurora 107

Today’s afternoon smoke La Aurora 107, a Dominican cigar. The first 1/3 of the cigar was a little difficult to enjoy but improved throughout the smoke. The burn and ash were both even and continuous. After halfway through the stick the flavors really started to come through, I picked up a walnut and peppery taste.…


Cuenca Y Blanco (CYB)

The Cuenca Y Blanco was a late night grab out of the humidor. Just when you think you don’t have time for a cigar and you pick one that changes all of that. I had a little Jameson’s Irish whiskey, and relaxed with this on the back deck. This stick is consistent throughout, the burn…


Drew Estate Liga Privada #9

Let me start by saying most people relate the Drew Estate line to infused cigars, and this is not to diminish those but to get everyone to try their other lines. This cigar from the cut and light did nothing but amaze me. The flavors from the cigar are definitely more of a full flavor…
