Guyacan by Noel Rojas

Guyacan Robusto by Noel Rojas. After a great day on the boat, this was a fantastic cigar to enjoy a few adult beverages with. I was fortunate enough to receive a few samples from Gary Griffith of Emilio cigars and this one really caught my eye and senses. The aroma from the Guyacan is deep…

Perla del Mar Box Press

Sometimes the drive to work is just a little better with a cigar. This morning I chose the Perla del Mar Box press. This is a mild to medium bodied stick with plenty of flavor. The box press is one of my favorite styles of cigar and I think it makes for an easy to…

Padron 3000 Maduro Robusto

First round of golf in a while, needed a good cigar to kick start my game. The Padron 3000 Maduro Robusto, has become a baseline for me. I smoke these cigars on a regular occasion. Padron ages the Maduro wrappers for 3 years, the flavors in turn are amazing. Secondly, the consistency. The quality control…

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…

Arturo Fuente Between the Lines Hemingway

I smoke these pretty regularly, the Hemingway line is a favorite of mine and I haven’t reviewed these before just because of the regularity in my rotation. The Fuente Between the Lines Hemingway, is one of the smoothest cigars I have found. The mix of the wrapper is not only appealing to the eye but…

Ezra Zion Tantrum

The Ezra Zion Tantrum, looks like a small and passive little cigar. It is nothing like that. The Tantrum is a limited edition kick in the face that packs the pepper spice and cocoa in a smooth cigar. The burn is sharp, the draw is easy, the flavor is plentiful! What else can you ask…

Torano Vault Blend D-042

This Torano Vault Blend D-042 is one powerful little cigar. I received these in the mail recently from Jack Torano, and was waiting for them to settle in my humidor so I could dig one out. The power of the cigar really rewards your flavor palate with the sweetness that lingers after each draw. This…
