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

Partagas Benji Master Series!!!!

So tonight I lit up this new Partagas Benji Master series, unfortunately it is a limited addition cigar, with only 5000 boxes made. However, this cigar is by far the best Partagas that I have had in a very long time. It is hard to find a peppery, cedary, also nutty, Dominican cigar. This cigar is closer to full bodied, but very tasty to the palate. I highly suggest everyone trying this cigar before they are all gone! I can confidentally say this being my third one that I have smoked, that Benji… Continue
