My Father Lounge Exclusive

This was gifted to me by a complete stranger after a few minutes of conversation about cigars. If thought the kind gesture was amazing but the cigar may be better. I have enjoyed Don Pepin cigars for as long as I can remember smoking cigars and yet I cannot compare the Lounge Exclusive with any…

M80 by Tatuaje

The M80 by Tatuaje was gifted to me by a great Brother of the Leaf, Nick. He warned me of the spice and strength from this little stick of dynamite and damn he wasn’t kidding. This was a special release made for 2 Guys Cigars years ago and is one of the rarest and hardest…

Cigars open doors

On a recent work trip I was enjoying fine cigar relaxing and taking a break when the “Judge”, asked if I had a spare. As usual I always travel with more than I can smoke. So, I offered him a Fuente and he said “get in the truck I wanna show you something”. This is…

Hemingway Short Story by Arturo Fuente

Living in the country has its benefits,  a slow winding road and a good cigar make for a nice morning.  The Arturo Fuente Gran Reserva short story is one hell of a companion. This is a perfect cigar on many levels. The flavor is impeccable. The burn on a shorter cigar needs and must be…

Padron 1964 Anniversary

This is the shortest and easiest review I have written.  Padron 1964 Anniversary Series,  is one amazing cigar! There is no reason that you shouldn’t have at least 5 of these cigars in any humidor you own. This is a 10 Smoke Ring cigar, and possibly the industry standard all cigar makers would love to…

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…

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…

Davidoff Nicaraguan

Davidoff Nicaraguan, this is my new favorite cigar. Davidoff has been making cigars for years, their first Nicaraguan blend is amazing. The bold flavors combined with the perfect construction have resulted in a great smoke. I am not a great golfer, or even a good golfer but when you have a cigar like this I…

A venture into Pipe’s

As most of you have recognized I am a cigar smoker and have been a cigar smoker thanks to the introduction by my good friend and “Drunken webmaster” JG. I will always be a cigar smoker first and foremost, but recently after retiring from the Navy I was given a custom made pipe by a…
