La Flor Dominicana Box press

You want “ligero”, we have “ligero”! This is one of the cases where you have a small package and a big explosion. I grabbed this little cigar for a dog walk this morning 5×48 box press thinking oh this will be a nice easy smoke to start the day, well that changed quick. I really…

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…

Cigar Review Information

I write my cigar reviews as a hobby. I retired after serving 20 years in the U.S. Navy. I also have a real job which pays me well and have no time for drama or trolls. If you don’t like my site or my opinions I do not care, but thank you for visiting my…

Davidoff Puro D’Oro Gordito

3.75×58″ Initial: I haven’t smoked a ton of Davidoff’s, mostly because my local shop doesn’t carry them. They say they cost too much for their clientele and the minimum order is $50k, so I was pretty happy to see this in a package Ben sent me for Christmas. It smells of stout and sweet chewing…

Viaje Holiday blend 2013

  This could have been one of the worst holiday cigars I have ever tried to smoke. I have had it resting for over a year. I am giving up on Viaje cigars completely.   The taste of grass was over powering and I will say the wrapper was the best part of this 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…

Viaje Stuffed Turkey

The holidays are here and everyone should try the Stuffed Turkey by Viaje. This is not just a gimmicky holiday release with no geal cigar qualities. I have to say the label looks hilarious and reminds me of Foghorn Leghorn, but this is actually a good cigar. I have noticed with Viajes they smoke better…

Damn the cold weather is tough on cigar smokers. I am in a cold area of the country right now and it is sunny but not enough. This cigar the Nica Libre 1990 Potencia did fight off some of the cold. 5 mins- easy draw, enough pepper and spice to get my attention from the…
