Viaje 2012 Collectors Edition

I had the pleasure of smoking this Viaje Collectors Edition 2012. This was a perfecto size, which is a peculiar size to roll and sometimes doesn’t smoke very easily but this Viaje was awesome. The smoothness and flavor was great. This is rich and creamy cigar with a perfect burn and draw. A slight woody…

La Flor Dominica Light

The La Flor Dominica “Light”, for the afternoon stroll. This is one amazing cigar, and completely different than the other LFD’s that I have smoked recently. This is one of the smoothest and yet flavorful cigars I have had by them. The pre light aroma was very earthy and the flavors reminded me of pecans.…

Illusione Rothchildes

The Illusione Rothchildes, is a great little cigar and a perfect dog walker. That’s what lead me down the path to find them and also a recommendation from a friend “Aidan”. The size is a 4 1/2 X 50, but don’t let the small size fool you into not trying this. There are a couple…

Drew Estate Herrera Esteli

The new Herrera Esteli by Drew Estate is one awesome cigar and could be one of my new favorites. This is as close as it comes to a true “Cuban” cigar without the hassle. The maker is Willie Herrera, formerly of “Titan” and the quality he has brought with him to make this cigar is…

Crowned Heads J.D. Howard Reserve

The first day of the NFL Football season needed a cigar with a little “Kick”, so why shouldn’t it be the J.D. Howard Reserve by Crowned Heads. This cigar was named for the alias the outlaw “Jesse James” used while hiding out in Tennessee. The cigar is the HR46 (6×46) and of a Brazilian, Ecuadorian…

Nadi Cigars Gilgamesh (Churchill)

The Gilgamesh by Nadi Cigars. I was sent this cigar recently through a wager and I am glad I won, this is one hell of a cigar. The wrapper and construction of the cigar were flawless upon removing the cellophane and the cigar had a slight sheen of oils to it. I had the Gilgamesh…

Ortega Serie D Boxpress Maduro

Today’s Labor day cigar review is the Ortega Serie D Boxpress Maduro. The weather was great here in the Seattle area and the sunny day on the beach needed a cigar with a little kick and spice. I have seen these cigars in every magazine and on numerous websites so I thought I should have…

Nomad Vagabond Figurado

Let me begin by saying this was my last Nomad in stock and I will be driving 30 minutes in Seattle traffic to pick up another box tomorrow. If that doesn’t say quality and the amount of respect I have for the maker Fred Rewey and the product then you should read the first sentence…

Leccia White Label, The smoking lamp is Lit!

Today’s smoke is very new and from an old Navy shipmate of mine, Sam Leccia. Sam introduced two new cigars under his own label after taking an unwelcome break from the industry by no fault of his own. Some of you may know him as the inventor of the “Nub”, a cigar that truly changed…

Roma Craft Tobac – Intemperance Robusto

I received a nice package of cigars for my review when I came home from work Friday and there were two cigars in there I really wanted to try, both with the Intemperance band on them. I chose the Connecticut wrapper first, thinking it would be the milder to start with. I had to do…
