Man O Man These are good!

I'd really love to see more AJ Fernandez creations at Tinder Box. Especially Man O War Ruination !! I'm smoking my evening smoke as of this writing: San Lotano Oval. AJ hits a home run almost every at bat. The Oval is a grand slam and a must try for the true cigar nut. I'm proud to be a nut.

Place to avoid in Alexandria VA

 So, I'm in Alexandria Va for business. I googled cigar stores and found Cigar Palace, which had a Monticristo Lounge. It said they had memberships available, so I called at 3pm to see if there were any arrangements for a person on  a business trip. I was told by the female on the line that as long as I purchased a cigar, I could smoke it in the lounge to try it out. She also upon request informed me that they were open til 10:00pm. When I showed up at 8 after dinner (yep, you guessed it) I was… Continue

If ever in Denver, go visit Cigars on 6th. Great Place to smoke, hang out, get your hair cut and a shoe shine. And you can order subs from the joint next door.

Drew Estate's Liga Privada T52

Again, lead by hype I had to try the new Liga Privada T52. I fired it up tonight and from the moment I punched this cigar I knew it was going to be a good smoke simply because the construction was absolutely flawless. It burns perfectly all the way throughout the entire cigar. It is set as a full bodied cigar and I would say that, that is dead on correct. Strong woody/cedary flavors. The wrapper is what really impressed me. It has United States Connecticut Habano wrapper. It…

New Favorite Cigar????

Okay, so I have heard a few people raving about this new Avo LE10 so I had to give it a try. I lit it up and instantly the flavors rush to the palate. I wasn't sure what to expect at all. The richness and complexity of this cigar has blown me away, it still has that classic Avo taste but it is like an Avo on steroids. It is rich full flavored, full bodied and amazingly tasty. The construction is of course perfect like any other Avo and the draw is flawless. The cigar truely builds from light to… Continue

Winston Churchill by Davidoff

I decided to give this cigar a try and see if it lived up to the Davidoff name. I was very impressed with this cigar, it was more full bodied than every Davidoff that I have smoked. The size I smoked was the Chequers which is a corona extra size with a 46 ring size and 5.5 inch length. The ring size was perfect and allowed the equadorian wrapper to shine through with the full flavor that this cigar offers. It had a slight spice with the typical Davidoff sweetness to round it off with the… Continue

IIllusione 888!!!

I smoked an Illusione 888 tonight and honestly forgot how good this cigar was. It was one of those cigars that was hyped up when it was released in 2007 and I wanted to smoke it again and see if it really was as good as the hype. Well, it is, it is a fabulous smoke medium to full bodied all Nicaraguan and has a lot of peppery notes to it. The ring gauge is perfect at 48 and it allows just enough wrapper to add a lot of flavor but yet enough filler to mellow it out. They double bind these cigars… Continue

Best Cigar Under $10??

Branching off from what Brandon recently posted, I was wondering what people thought were the best cigars that they've had which were under $10. I'm looking for some good bang-for-your-buck cigars. Thanks

Padron 1964 Maduro Exclusivo

Pre Burn: Not one of the darkest Padron Maduros I've had but certainly oily with a sllight aroma of cocoa and coffee.

First third: Some earthy and cedary notes are present.

Second third: Cocoa notes dominate this cigar in the middle. Exceptionally smooth with an effortles draw makes this experience enjoyable.

Final third: Subtle hints of coffee are now paired with the strong cocoa notes to create one of the best tastes in a cigar - Cubans…

What is the best cigar that you have ever smoke???

I was thinking today about all the amazing cigars that have come out this past year, and I think the Padron 45th may have been one of the best cigars I have ever smoked, I am curious to see what you guys think. What is the best cigar you guys have ever had?

1926 Padron No. 6 Maduro

Pre-Burn: Dark, oily wrapper with few veins. Slight box press.

First Third: Starts off with a kick of spice then mellows. This cigar has an easy draw.

Middle Third: Some initial spice is lost in the middle but the flavor does not desist. Instead of spice, one can also taste bits of creaminess.

Final Third: Spice returns yet not overbearing. This cigar can be smoked down to the finger tips.

Overall, phenomenal cigar with a great flavor complexity. One… Continue

Nestor Miranda LANCERO

I smoked the Nestor Miranda Lancero tonight 1/19/2010. Its a great smoke. I love all of Nestors cigars that he puts out. I think there all very flavorful. Its a little bit spicier then the Ruky and the bigger ring gauges but thats a given because its such a smaller size. Its got hints of chocolate and espresso. GREAT SMOKE!!! Cant wait to smoke another!!

Tatuaje Red Verocu Tubo

I smoked the new Tatuaje RED Verocu Tubo tonight and it was a fantastic smoke. We just got them in new to Tinderbox. The cigar started off with hints of espresso, chocolate, and a hint of sweetness. Not typical for Tat because there usually a little bit spicier. It buned true all the way through and ended with a little citrous flavor. Great smoke!!

Montecristo Reserva Negra Corona


This cigar has an uber dark wrapper with an underlying dark chocolate aroma.

First Third:

Starts off a tad harsh however after the first ash, creamy notes are present.

Middle Third:

Best part of the cigar by far - more creaminess and the underlying dark chocolate taste comes into play.

Final Third:

Very smooth and the burn stays cool. Lots of flavor complexity.

Corona shaped cigars generally have the proclivity to burn… Continue

The Old Faithful!

I decided to pull out a Romeo Y Julieta from the humidor that I had purchased here about 8 or so months ago and decided to light it up. It had been a while since I had smoked one, and all the talk about the Reserve Real being the number one selling cigar in the world I decided to see what it was like with some age on it. This is a very light cigar, to change things up a little from my normal medium to full bodied cigars. It was a very mild, yet creamy cigar with slight hints of coffee and a… Continue
