Drew Estate My UZI Weighs a Ton (XXL)

“Say hello to my lil friend”….This was a huge cigar The UZI XXL, delivers the goods. I had a few of these before but never the behemoth version, this was an hour and twenty minutes of good flavor. The construction and burn were fantastic for such a beast. I really didn’t expect a bigger gauge…

La Palina (Toro)

Hump day needed a little help! This special lady made it easy. My first La Palina this evening, and it is a delight. I expected a flavor bomb after speaking with friends who have had it, but all I got was one smooth smoke. The wrapper was a little veiny, and it’s a Mexican tobacco…

San Lotano Maduro (Boxpress)

Tuesday needed to be a great cigar. I really have never had the San Lotano line before but have been a fan of AJ Fernandez for quite a while. After removing the cellophane and giving it a good sniff, I knew this was a powerful stick. The quality of the wrapper was impeccable with no…

Drew Estate Papas Fritas

I thoroughly enjoyed this cigar in the smoke “pit” ( Navy smoking area) with a few submarine sailors, listening to them moan and groan about sub life. I think the ambient low morale made this cigar that much better. This is a small stick, but don’t be fooled. If you want power in a small…

This alone should draw some of the My Father fans to this cigar immediately. I would really recommend this cigar to…

L’Atelier Maduro (MAD54)

The Sunday morning dog walk was going to be an adventure, so I chose a new cigar released by Pete Johnson and his brother KC Johnson (Tatuaje makers) at the 2013 IPCPR trade show. This is one of his latest cigars to be released and his first true Maduro cigar. Previously the “Surrogates” line had…

My Father Flor de Antillas

This cigar has an aroma that’s amazing pre-smoke. Some of you may not like the flavor from the Rosado wrapper, but I thoroughly enjoy it. This cigar went well with a glass of red wine. The burn and draw were perfect and Don Pepin has once again impressed. 8/10 Smoke rings.
