Ezra Zion Honor Series

I have had a bit of a hiatus from cigar reviews with some personal life events happening and also the ice and snow storms interupting my hearty appetite for a good cigar. I received a very amazing sampler in the mail from my good friend and cigar legend Gary Griffith of Emilio Cigars. Today’s smoke…

Viaje Honey & Hand Grenade “The Shank”

The Viaje Honey & Hand Grenade “The Shank”. I have been setting on these for almost 3 years. Thought I would crack open the box and see what age has done to these. Upon unwrapping the beautiful but useless tin foil the aroma is definitely a grassy and earthy smell. This is a cold day…

Arturo Fuente Unnamed Reserve 2014 (6×60)

The Arturo Fuente Unnamed Reserve in a 6×60. A trip to Miami and this is what I planned to enjoy on the beach. I managed to slip away for a few hours in the evening and picked up a box of these from Neptune Cigars! A great shop with a magnificent selection and great service…

OpusX – Angels share

Initial smells like Cap’n Crunch cereal, never had a cigar smell like that. I literally sat here and smelled it ‘unlit’ for 10 minutes, such a treat. Drinking Eagle Rare Bourbon. Looks like 50×6.5 but I’m not 100% sure, this cigar was a gift. 10min: sooooo damn smooth you want to smoke the whole cigar…

Davidoff Perfecto

I thought why not treat myself to a fine Domincan cigar, hell let’s double up. The Davidoff Short Perfecto is flawless. The dry draw was easy and had just a hint of a caramel sweetness. The Ecuadorian Dominican wrapper really burns smooth and the flavor is very appealing. I wished I had picked up more…

Royal Danish Cigars Regal Blend Queens

I have aged these Royal Danish cigars for about 4 months since receiving them from  www.danishcigars.com First the presentation of the cigar is amazing, the unwrapping to get it ready to smoke is an experience and feels elegant the way the name wants it to. The aroma is like aged cedar and a hint of…

Tatuaje 7th Capa Especial

Tatuaje 7th Capa Especial, this has been a cigar I was chasing for a while. There had been so many good reviews about it I needed to try it for myself. This cigar like all Tat’s are rolled at the My Father factory in Esteli, NIca. The wrapper was a little rough and looked dated.…

Fuente Hemingway Short Story

  Sometimes there is no need to wander away from one of the cigars that grabbed you and made you a cigar smoker. My friend and fellow reviewer John, gave me my first good cigars and started me down a slippery slope with an Arturo Fuente Anejo. He saved me months of bad cigars and…

Tatuaje Cojonu 2006

Tatuaje Cojonu 2006, deep dark flavor combined with complexity. This Cojonu is an example of a great blender combined with a factory of meticulous rollers producing a cigar that needs no improvement. 5 minutes – a mellow beginning with an easy draw and even burn 15 minutes – the multiple attacks on my palate with…

Jericho Hill by Crowned Heads

Inspired by Johnny Cash, the Jericho Hill is a dark deep smoke that will be enjoyed for years just like “The man in Black’s” music. This dark San Andreas wrapper with the finest premium Nicaraguan binder leads to a dark smoke and a length of flavor. To really enjoy this cigar put on a good…
