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…

La Aurora Untamed

La Aurora Untamed, this is something I would have probably never picked up in the cigar shop. It looks different and the band just a little cheesy to me. Though after lighting this cigar and really letting it tell me the flavors, I will be after a few more of these soon. This is not…

La Flor Dominicana Box press

You want “ligero”, we have “ligero”! This is one of the cases where you have a small package and a big explosion. I grabbed this little cigar for a dog walk this morning 5×48 box press thinking oh this will be a nice easy smoke to start the day, well that changed quick. I really…

Nica Libre 1990 Potencia

Damn the cold weather is tough on cigar smokers. I am in a cold area of the country right now and it is sunny but not enough. This cigar the Nica Libre 1990 Potencia did fight off some of the cold. 5 mins- easy draw, enough pepper and spice to get my attention from the…

La Riqueza

The La Riqueza by Tatuaje. The look of this cigar after opening the box brought back an old world feel. It’s a very toothy and rough wrapper and a few veins showing which tells me the filler is where the bang is at. These come in boxes of 10 and the price is great. After…

Jekyl Monster by Tatuaje

The newest monster by Tatuaje is the Jekyl and it is one tasty cigar. I cracked open the box as soon as they arrived which is not the norm for me. I usually let them set for a week or more, but I wanted to give these a try. I can definitely pick up just…

Pre flight Matilde

A few hours on a plane need to be preceded with a good cigar. I chose the Matilde and a quiet place down on the Tar River here in Greenville, NC just a few blocks from the East Carolina University campus. I picked a couple of these up from Blackbeard Cigars and have really enjoyed…

Roberto P. Duran

Just received these from Roberto Duran and I couldn’t wait to try them. The aroma from the packaging made me break my rule of letting them rest for a week before smoking. Examining the cigar pre light it’s flawless. The wrapper is smooth and clean, the cigar is firm but not hard. The draw before…

601 La Bomba Bunker Buster

The 601 La Bomba Bunker Buster,  picked up a few of these on my recent trip to Florida. I have enjoyed most of the cigars in the 601 line and this Bunker Buster is damn good. I liked the look of this cigar and the wrapper was a dark and just a little oily.  The…

Las Calaveras

The thunderstorms rolled in and I rolled out a new cigar to enjoy. The Las Calaveras by Crowned Heads. I had seen these start to pop up around the B&B and thought they looked great but no one really had any gouge on the profile. Well, I can say without a doubt this is a…
