Gunslinger Cigars “Drifter”

Today’s cigar is the Gunslinger Cigars “Drifter” a 6 X54 Torpedo. This comes from an independent maker out of Kansas City, MO and rolled at the AJ Fernandez factory. At first look the cigar was a real beauty, flawless and clean wrapper with enough oils to give it a nice shine on the Ecuadorian wrapper.…

Great high quality bargain stick.

Drew Estate La Vieja Habana

Today’s review is the Drew Estate La Vieja Habana. This is their first non-infused cigar and was introduced in the mid 90’s. The pre light feel of the cigar was very consistent and had a great look to the dark wrapper. The oils of the wrapper had really turned the cellophane and the label a…

Omar Ortez Torpedo

This Omar Ortez torpedo, was packed full of Nicaraguan flavor. I was given this cigar a few months ago and when I grabbed it from my stash it was still covered in an oily gloss and a little plume. I knew this would be a great cigar for a rainy Seattle afternoon at the cigar…

La Jugada “Prieto” Robusto

The end to a busy Monday was a La Jugada “Prieto” Robusto provided to me by Mike Cavanaugh of donfranciscocigars.com As some of you will see on my reviews, I have my dogs out and usually walking the old abandoned railroad tracks. These dogs almost sense when I get a cigar, that it means they…

Tatuaje Cabaiguan

This was given to me by a friend about a year ago. The Tatuaje line by Pete Johnson has a wide range of cigars for all tastes. The pre-light aroma was smooth and easy on the senses. The first third of the cigar burned very evenly and gave a flavor of almonds and oak. The…
