Carlos Toraño Exodus 1959 Finite 2013

The Toraño Exodus 1959 Finite 2013, I had a sampler sized Toro and had been letting them sit in the humidor for a few weeks before giving them a smoke. I give this cigar a very high rating on appearance and also the aroma was very distinct after removing the cello.  The pre light draw was somewhat…

Dissident Bloc B_A

I just received a nice sampler in the mail with a few stickers, a note which could have been written by “Zodiac Killer”, and some quality looking stogies. The cigars looked tasty, the stickers went on my wineador, and the note was turned over to the FBI for handwriting analysis! Their shop is in Wichita,…

Four Kicks Robusto

I have been traveling for what has seemed like a month, but in reality on 5 days. We have driven from Seattle to Missouri and not had a chance to post for a few days, but this doesn’t mean I haven’t enjoyed a few great cigars along the way. I received this “Four Kicks” Robusto…

El Gran Robusto by Don Lopez

The Don Lopez Toro turned out to be a great cigar for this cold walk. I had just received these from Yunior Lopez in the mail and couldn’t wait to give them a try. The flavor profile was fantastic, very smooth. The best way to describe this cigar is a mocha. It is creamy and…

Drew Estate Nica Rustica

I finally got my hands on one of these to try, the Nica Rustica by Drew Estate. I had been hearing good things about them from friends and I can see why now. The burn was sharp, the draw easy, and the flavor profile pretty smooth. There was just enough of a cedar flavor with…

La Sirena Trident

The La Sirena Trident, for the Great American Smoke Out. The first thing I would like to say, is I wish I would have started smoking these a few months back when I was sent a 5’er of them. These are really an amazing cigar not to mention the artwork. The first thing you notice…

Padron Series 2000

Today was the first day I needed gloves on my cigar walk. I chose the Padron Series 2000 for this chilly afternoon. I would like to say this is one hell of a cigar not even mentioning the bargain you can usually find these for, around $5 almost anywhere. The first thing I noticed with…

Cabal Short Robusto

I was given a Cabal by a friend the other night and I enjoyed it so much I purchased a box. The Cabal Short Robusto is one awesome cigar. The size is what I enjoy for these shorter colder afternoon dog walks. This is a perfect 30 minute cigar, but it doesn’t lack in the…
