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…

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…

Davidoff Special R

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…

Arturo Fuente 8-5-8 Flor Fina

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…

Alec Bradley Mundial

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…

AKA Solace Destiny Corona (6×44)

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. I am not one to venture too much into the boutique line, but will keep an open mind. First, I chose the Corona (6×44)…
