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…

Tabak Especial by Drew Estate

The Tabak Especial by Drew Estate is not my normal go to cigar, but it’s a refreshing stick for some. I have personally never been an infused cigar fan and really never will be but this was a nice detour to remind me of that. The label says coffee infused,  I personally didn’t taste coffee. …

San Cristobal Revelation

This is a cigar I have seen in a few publications and wanted to see if the advertising matched the quality.  The San Cristobal line is a partnership between Ashton and Don Pepin and they are made at the Pepin factory in Nicaragua.  The construction of the cigar is typical Pepin…..perfect! The burn and draw…

Fuente Gran Reserva Rosado

Independence day is also my wedding anniversary.  Nothing better than a strong drink and a fantastic cigar! I have always been a Fuente fan this Gran Reserva Rosado just sold me on making sure I have boxes of these at all times. The prelight draw is smooth and just a hint of sweetness.  I have…

Bodega Reunion Digestivo

The Bodega Reunion Digestivo Toro. Digestivo refers to an after the meal cigar, the other cigar in this line is the “Apertivo”. This cigar is definitely worth a try and is really a treat. The dark textured maduro wrapper really gives a glimpse into how this cigar is going to smoke and taste. The dark…

Diamond in the rough

I literally have no idea what this cigar is, who it came from, or even when and where I got it. It was in the bottom shelf of the wineador when I was grabbing golf cigars this morning. Let this be a lesson to everyone,  label you’re cigars you get. This was the lineup for…

Golfing Cigars

How many of us golf and smoke cigars? I would bet thousands,  I am on a mission to find a decent middle of the road cigar that I don’t cry about when I leave it in the tee box and drive 200 yards before I realize it. This Partagas, is a very good middle of…
