Tatuaje Red Verocu Tubo

Well, today started out early and very peaceful. I grabbed the leashes and got the dogs ready. Then fished into the higher end of my cigar collection (the area I don’t share). I dug around some Opus Sharks, Pre-embargo Cuban’s, Bolivar’s and spotted what I been wanting to smoke for a few years now. In…

There are a few lines of cigars that I can name that I refuse to share with friends, not being rude but just wanting to enjoy them all myself. The box of Davidoff Series R, fall into the lead position in this category. The flavor on this cigar begins the minute you remove it from…

The time has come to ramp back up the cigar reviews. I am getting back to basics and covering cigars every humidor should have in it as old faithful go to cigars. Let’s start this with one of my regular rotation cigars that are quality without breaking the bank and you will never be snickered…

Ezra Zion Honor Series

I have had a bit of a hiatus from cigar reviews with some personal life events happening and also the ice and snow storms interupting my hearty appetite for a good cigar. I received a very amazing sampler in the mail from my good friend and cigar legend Gary Griffith of Emilio Cigars. Today’s smoke…

Viaje Honey & Hand Grenade “The Shank”

The Viaje Honey & Hand Grenade “The Shank”. I have been setting on these for almost 3 years. Thought I would crack open the box and see what age has done to these. Upon unwrapping the beautiful but useless tin foil the aroma is definitely a grassy and earthy smell. This is a cold day…

The morning starts early with a quick jaunt through the neighborhood for a wake up dog walk. This morning things were a little slower since there is about an inch of fresh snow, so I thought I would grab a cigar and a cup of coffee to enjoy. I blindly reached into the humidor and…

American Kick Ass Cigars, not sure about the name but I will give them a try strictly on the recommendation of the B&M. I picked these up at www.opendoorcigars.com for Poker Night.

Viaje Holiday blend 2013

  This could have been one of the worst holiday cigars I have ever tried to smoke. I have had it resting for over a year. I am giving up on Viaje cigars completely.   The taste of grass was over powering and I will say the wrapper was the best part of this cigar.…
