Davidoff Escurio

The Davidoff black label, has moved from Nicaragua south to Brazil. The Escurio, is absolutely a nice addition to the Davidoff line and also to any humidor. I managed to grab a couple of these at a shop I frequent and highly recommend, Just for him Wrapper: Ecuadorian Havana Seed Binder: Brazilian Cubra Seed Filler: Meta Fina & Cubra…

Illusione “Gigantes”

I am a huge fan of the Illusione line in general. The simplicity of the cigars combined with a consistent flavor really appeals to my narrow minded, opinionated, sharp witted palate. I have multiple boxes of the Rothchildes aging and really enjoy them very often. It seems to me the Illusione Gigante will be injected…

Davidoff Special R

There are a few lines of cigars that I can name that I refuse to share with friends, not being rude but just wanting to enjoy them all myself. The box of Davidoff Series R, fall into the lead position in this category. The flavor on this cigar begins the minute you remove it from…

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…

AKA Solace Destiny Corona (6×44)

American Kick Ass Cigars, not sure about the name but I will give them a try strictly on the recommendation of the B&M. I picked these up at www.opendoorcigars.com for Poker Night. I am not one to venture too much into the boutique line, but will keep an open mind. First, I chose the Corona (6×44)…

La Aurora Untamed

La Aurora Untamed, this is something I would have probably never picked up in the cigar shop. It looks different and the band just a little cheesy to me. Though after lighting this cigar and really letting it tell me the flavors, I will be after a few more of these soon. This is not…

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.…

JFK’s cigar love affair.

  I found this to be an interesting read and thought I would share it here. Now I am going to light up one of my own Petit Upmann’s and relax. I would recommend you do the same and enjoy the history lesson. The only other President I think who has done this much for…
