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)…

2014 Viaje Collaboration

The 2014 Viaje Collaboration. This was a smooth cigar with an even burn and a mild flavor.  I have found that most Viajes need a few months a aging after purchase before an adequate review can be composed.  I can only wait and hope that these improve.  This was a good $5 cigar currently but…

Don Duarte Reserva Toro Grande

The Don Duarte Reserva Toro Grande is one tasty cigar. It is a bigger ring gauge than I usually smoke (6×60), but this cigar was well worth the venture out of my zone of regular cigars. This is a Nicaraguan puro from the Plasencia factory blended by Don Roger Duarte and the legendary Evelio Oviedo.The…

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…

Perla del Mar Box Press

Sometimes the drive to work is just a little better with a cigar. This morning I chose the Perla del Mar Box press. This is a mild to medium bodied stick with plenty of flavor. The box press is one of my favorite styles of cigar and I think it makes for an easy to…

Drew Estate Nirvana toro

Hi my name is John. This is my first review here, but not my first cigar. About me: Ive been a cigar smoker for 15 years and have saved every band, have storage lockers full of thousands of bands, I’m a band hoarder I guess. Its fun to look back and see bands that you…

Rocky Patel Private Cellar

Randomly grabbing a cigar from the top shelf today, and I chose the Rocky Patel Private Cellar. I want to say first, the last couple of Rocky Patel cigars have given me a little bit of a grudge to the label, but this Private Cellar changed my opinion at least for the short term. The…

Alec Bradley American Sun Grown

First, I would like to say I hope they catch the thieves who broke into the warehouse and stole $600,000 of cigars. Now, to the review. The American Sun Grown by Alec Bradley was a decent cigar. I had the robusto size and it was just the right size for a stroll around the block.…

Padilla Dominus

The Padilla Dominus was my cigar to get the day started. I heard great things about this and thought I would pick a few up and find out for myself. One of the first things I noticed after removing the cellophane was just how oily the wrapper looked. The cigar had a great feel and…
